My daughter loves pancakes, so whenever i am making pancakes i always like to add something that makes it little more healthy and when i found this recipe with whole wheat flour and cocoa powder in it, i knew she will love it and she did. I added some chocolate chips(for my daughter) and served with some chocolate syrup on top. And also they can be made dairy free if you use soya yogurt and soya milk , perfect vegan pancake too .
Makes 7 to 8 small pancakes
Whole wheat flour - 3/4 cup
Refined all purpose flour - 1/2 cup
Cocoa powder (100%) - 3 tsp
Cinnamon - a pinch
Salt - a pinch
Baking powder - 1 tsp
Baking soda - 1/4 tsp
Low fat yogurt - 2 tbsp
Low fat milk - about 1 cup or as required
Brown sugar - 3 tsp
Oil - few drops to grease the pan
1)Roughly whisk the dry ingredients - flour, cocoa, cinnamon, baking powder, baking soda, salt and sugar, with a wire whisk till they are well combined.
2)Add the yogurt and gradually add the milk. Whisk well to form a batter - not too thick or too thin. When you lift the whisk the batter will fall in ribbons.
3)Heat a skillet or non stick pan and grease the surface with very little oil. Add a ladle of this batter to the center. If the consistency is right the batter should spread a little to form a small pancake.
4)When bubbles form on the top surface, flip it using a flat spatula and then cook the other side. Serve hot with honey, chocolate sauce and fresh berries.
