These oatmeal peanut butter pancakes with chocolate chips are easy to make and you probably have all the ingredients at home! To make this healthy breakfast idea you need no flour or sugar, just oats and honey.
Oatmeal Peanut Butter Chocolate Pancakes
So I mentioned a few times already how I don’t like chocolate that much…I know, total weirdo alert here. And yet, for a few weeks I’ve been waking up craving chocolate. I don’t know what it is…maybe some weird deficiency? Who knows.
I usually try to not start my mornings with a cup of sugar, I drink a lot of water and by noon this craving always goes away.
However one day, I did my whole morning routine thing wrong, went on social media, read the news, didn’t work out and decided to also make pancakes and watch Youtube videos. Not the best way to start a morning let me tell you, it didn’t end up being a productive day. Still, I did finish something that day because I made these peanut butter pancakes. And even though they’re not a green smoothie, they’re a healthier version of pancakes. Plus see that melted chocolate?
How These Peanut Butter Pancakes Happened
Now, I’ll be honest, on days like that one – if I had normal flour, butter
But, I had my oats, my peanut butter, and 85% dark chocolate, so I decided to make healthier pancakes with oatmeal. Put it all into one bowl, then blended with my hand blender and added chocolate chips.
Super quick and easy and delicious! Exactly what I needed on that morning!
Update: I made these a year ago, and now that I’m a better person, I haven’t bought peanut butter in a while and so the last time I made these it was using hazelnut butter. Very yummy, but any nut butter will work though – almond or peanut – use whichever one you prefer.
- 2 eggs
- 1/2 cup oats
- 1/2 tsp vinegar
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 1 Tbsp natural peanut butter
- 2 Tbsp chocolate, chopped
- 1 Tbsp honey
- 1 tsp coconut oil
- 2 Tbsp milk of choice or water
- Put all ingredients for the pancakes, except the chocolate chunks in a bowl or your blender if you don't have an immersion blender. Use your immersion blender or your blender to blend the recipe. Then add in the chopped chocolate and walnuts.
- Cover the surface of a non-stick pan with coconut oil and preheat over medium-high heat. Pour in the mixture, making smaller pancakes (size of your palm). When bubbles appear and the edges look done, flip the pancake and cook until golden brown on the other side as well.
- Top with toppings of choice!
In the past I made this recipe using natural peanut butter, but recently I started using more almond and hazelnut butter when I cook, so I actually used hazelnut butter for the video and the images that you see. Nevertheless, the recipe will work with any nut butter you choose.
1/2 tsp baking powder
1 1/2 Tbsp peanut butter
1 1/2 Tbsp honey
1/3 cup oats
1/4 cup chocolate, chopped
3 walnut halves, chopped
2 Tbsp coconut oil
