Vegan Chocolate Peanut Butter Pancakes

By Hblack79

It’s always a good Tuesday when it involved pancakes!!  I used to not be a fan of pancakes – crazy, right?!  The problem was that they lacked nutrition and made me feel sick to my stomach within the hour and then hungry again within the next 2 hours.  Since I’ve learned to make healthy pancakes that are packed with nutrition, I’ve grown to enjoy them a lot more.  For one, you can use one bowl, so the cleanup isn’t bad.  Secondly, you can freeze them and eat later for a quick and healthy breakfast or snack.  Another thing I love about pancakes?  Variety.


Lately, I haven’t been able to make pancakes without throwing in some peanut butter and chocolate.  Who doesn’t love peanut butter and chocolate?  Crazy people.  That’s who.  I’ll admit, it’s no Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup, but it’s delicious nonetheless.



I started out with some Mickey Mouse pancakes to get me in the pancake spirit, they were delightful.  So I jotted down some recipe information and tested the recipe out for a second time to make sure it was ready for y’all and I do believe it is!

One tip for pancakes on the skillet: Low heat.  I made that mistake at first and they turned out a little burnt and gooey inside.  Obviously, I should have thought about that, but for some reason I didn’t.  When I adjusted the heat, they turned out great!

This food blogging is no joke.  One of my resolutions is to post more recipes.  I have a lot of admiration for food bloggers out there because it takes a lot of dedication and hard work to get a recipe post ready to submit.  I look forward to learning more about this side of blogging – food photography (obviously, I need some work!), recipe building, recipe testing, recipe writing, and so much more!  I just added the easy recipe wordpress plugin and it helps create a clean look to the recipe.  There is so much more for me to learn and improve on – I’m very excited about it!

Let me know if you give these pancakes a try!
