Cocoa Pancakes Recipe Ingredients
2 egg whites
1 cup milk
1 tbsp margarine or butter, melted
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 cup sugar
2 tbsp baking cocoa
1 tsp baking powder
1/8 tsp salt
1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
Vanilla Greek yogurt, if desired
1 cup sliced strawberries
- Beat egg whites in medium bowl with hand beater on high until foamy (for a minute). Beat in milk and melted butter until smooth. Stir in flour, baking powder, sugar, cocoa powder, salt, nutmeg.
- Heat griddle or skillet at 375 degrees F (medium high heat). If bubbles jump around at the sprinkle of a few drops of water, heat is just right. Add butter or margarine or vegetable cooking oil.
- Use a ladle to pour pancake batter onto the greased pan. Cook pancakes until puffed and dry around edges. Turn and cook other sides until golden brown. Serve with yogurt and strawberries.
The cocoa pancakes are also delicious with blueberries or blackberries. Drizzle with maple syrup if you’d like. It is sweet on its own. If you are in the mood for crepes, I have a crepe recipe for you!
To use the 2 yolks up, make Mango Pastry Cream. You can make delicious fruit tart with the mango pastry cream. If you want to use whole eggs, the cocoa pancakes recipe will still work, as long as you don’t mind the extra calories of the yolk.
Serve the pancakes with whipped cream instead of using yogurt if you aren’t watching your calories.
This cocoa pancakes recipe is easy enough to make with kids! Let them stir the batter.
