triple chocolate pancakes

I've been becoming quite the pancake-freak lately. I've always LOVED shoving my face with pancakes but hated making them. Not to mention, I'd usually burn them and the house would smell like it was on fire somewhere. My mom wasn't a fan. However, over the last few weeks, I've been making pancakes in the morning for breakfast and am starting to love the process of whisking together a few simple ingredients, pouring them on a hot pan, watching them puff up and bubble a bit, and flip them until their sides are golden. It's like therapy but cheaper. I've come up with a basic recipe that I use often. Although really, it's not an actual recipe. It's a just few ingredients that I pour into the bowl, no measuring cups in sight. Somehow they always turn out better when I eyeball it. 

Anyways, lately my blog stats have been plummeting. It's weird and it's driving my insides CRAZY. Yesterday, my stats were only a third of the usual views. When I saw this, I immediately thought "I need to come up with a super awesome recipe. And fast." Plain old pancakes weren't gonna cut it, so obviously, I turned to chocolate… I always turn to chocolate. {seriously, the amount I consumed yesterday? frightening. I had a bad day, ok?} I shut the computer, ran to the kitchen, took out my ingredients, and made pancakes at 11 am. 'Cuz why not. 

These pancakes are pretty basic- eggs, yogurt, a bit of sugar to balance out the chocolate, flour, baking powder, cocoa, some chocolate soy milk, and chocolate chunks. Chocolate x3. For the chocolate chunks I used a combination of two chocolate bars- one I used was like semi-sweet chocolate {it's my new favorite. I munch on it throughout the whole day. NO SHAME.} and a little bit of 70% cocoa. Yup, these pancakes are dark, man. Nothing wimpy going on over here. 

Since I made these at kind of a weird time, I topped them off with whipped cream and my whole family dug in. The combination of the dark, fluffy pancakes and the melty, oozy chocolate is to DIE FOR. A little tip before I forget- the pancakes are super tender and delicate… Like a newborn baby. You know how you get all like scared to touch them in fear that you may, uhh… break them? Kinda like these pancakes. Just be sure to let them get pretty done on one side before you flip them. Otherwise you'll end up with a flippy floppy undone pancake baby, and we don't like flippy floppy pancake babies. Oh and did I mention they're relatively healthy? Yah, triple chocolate pancakes that don't take up your whole day's calorie intake. You're so welcome.
