Pancakes are on my mind!
So what do you think about pancakes? Somehow, I am a lover of all kinds of cakes and sweets – cheesy I know. I love pancakes topped with some maple syrup. Top it with some ice cream for dessert or having it for breakfast, lunch and dinner. How do you prefer it?
I feel they sound better for dessert. Being a light eater, a sweet breakfast is not really preferable for me. But since most dieticians and nutritionists say breakfast is the most important meal of the day and should be eaten like a king, we need something filling or even fruits to start the day but not sweet.
As I am a huge fan of one ingredient i.e. “oats”, I am going to make chocolate oats Greek yogurt pancakes. It is sinful and decadent with some healthy benefits! You can even add bananas or some apple slices to add texture to the exceptional taste of the pancakes.
These chocolate pancakes are quick to make, soft and fluffy to eat. Put a generous dollop of mixture on the pan to get that lovely thickness. You can also add eggs and whip it generously to get some extra proteins in! A scoop of ice cream or a drizzle of honey or maple syrup, makes it an ideal treat for all age groups!
- 1 cup oats
- ½ cup white flour
- ½ cup cocoa powder (unsweetened)
- 1/2 cup sugar

- ¼ cup butter (plus to apply on pancakes)
- Mix all the dry ingredients: white flour, rolled oats, cocoa powder, sugar and baking powder, soda together.
- Add in the Greek yogurt and milk.
- Mix it all well.
- In a heating pan, add a dollop of the batter and spread it into a thick disc. Cook it on both sides with some butter.
- Make the rest in the same way and drizzle some honey and chocolate syrup on top.
- Serve with some chopped fruit over it! It’s ready to eat!
