I love chocolate. Chocolate candy, chocolate cookies, chocolate cake if it’s made with chocolate I’m in. So it’s no shock to my family that I would figure out a way to incorporate chocolate into my favorite breakfast food pancakes.
Now I know what you are thinking of chocolate for breakfast. Well, help me out, moms. We all know moms are up long before the sun rises. We usually get up early to get in a workout, answer emails and get a load of laundry done. Not to mention lunches packed and of course make breakfast. So we need no correction we deserve a little chocolate to say hey you did well this morning.
Plus I have a little secret about my pancakes they are made with not only love but with Krusteaz’s Buttermilk Protein Pancake mix. Each serving provides 15 grams of protein, and 4 grams of fiber and is made from 100% whole grain flour. They contain no artificial flavors, preservatives or color. Oh, and they taste AMAZING!!!
These pancakes taste homemade and are light and fluffy. However, they don’t have all the ugly stuff you don’t want. With an easy to make recipe and a better for you nutritional profile how can you say no to a plate of chocolate pancakes.
Andes Chocolate Mint Pancakes
1 cup Krusteaz pancake mix
1/2 cup Unsweetened cocoa
1/3 cups water (add more for thinner batter)
1/2 cup of Andes candy chopped into pieces
Mix Pancake ad cocoa together till blended
Stir in water till batter forms. Depending on whether you want thicker or thinner batter you can adjust water.
Laddle batter on to heated skillet and sprinkle on Andes chips.
Cook till bubbles form adn edges appear slightly dry. Flip and cook additional 1-2 minutes
Stack on plate cover with maple syrup, additional Andes chip or powder sugar
Mom tip: These pancakes are super easy but taste like they are homemade. they are light, fluffy and full of flavor. They also pair well with many different flavors. If mint isn’t a favorite of your family’s then try adding peanut butter chips,, white chocolate chips, dried cherries, or any flavor you feel pairs well with chocolate. The sky is the limit with these descendant pancakes.
