Gluten Free Triple Chocolate Chip Pancakes
2013 – Gluten Free Living
Prepare to drool over these spectacular Gluten Free Triple Chocolate Chip Pancakes. Let me make one thing clear from the start. There is NOTHING healthy about these pancakes! The pancakes are made with both cocoa and chocolate chips in the batter. Then you serve them with chocolate sauce drizzled all over them. On top of that you add more chocolate chips for garnish! Overkill, yes! Delicious, yes! Sugar addiction, yes! To die for (probably literally), yes, yes, yes!
I probably would have been fine with just the double chocolate pancakes and maple syrup drizzled over them, but the addition of chocolate sauce and additional chocolate chips put these pancakes over the top. They are so rich you may as well be eating dessert.
Feel free to eliminate the chocolate sauce if that’s too much chocolate for you! These are really easy to whip up like the other pancakes I’ve made, but these don’t have a compote or sauce accompanying them so they are even quicker and easier.
I recommend when you cook pancakes with chocolate chips (or any kind of chip for that matter), that you push the chocolate chips into the batter as soon as possible so the chips don’t remain floating on top of the pancake. This way when you turn the pancake over they don’t scorch and melt on the bottom of the pan and make a mess.
If you’re looking for a way to make chocolate chips that tastes like dessert, then this recipe is for you. If you are trying to be healthy then close your eyes and look at some of my other pancake recipes with fruit compotes and sauces. 🙂
For those of you who are dairy intolerant, you can almost always substitute coconut milk for regular milk and coconut oil for butter in recipes. There are also egg replacers for purchase at speciality shops and whole-foods markets.
When I first posted this recipe in March 2013, it was before I started taking pictures with my Canon and all I had was an iPhone. The pictures just weren’t as nice as I would have liked even though the recipe was spectacular.
I recently remade this recipe (June 2016) and promptly demolished these pancakes. It did take me two sittings to do it, but these pancakes even reheat well. These are one of my favorite gluten free pancake recipes. The texture of the pancakes is wonderful.
If you want a richer and darker chocolate flavor and color, then simply increase the cocoa in the recipe from two tablespoons for four, or use a dark-roasted cocoa. While I probably should have called these “triple chocolate pancakes,” I think you can see from the pictures just a luscious-looking they are.
Eating a bite of Gluten Free Triple Chocolate Chip Pancakes is like having dessert! Seriously, you’ll be drooling over every bite.
Rich and decadent–these amazing pancakes are everything you could dream of in a pancake! Yes, they are on the sweet side–even for my huge sweet tooth!
Gluten Free Triple Chocolate Chip Pancakes are garnished with chocolate sauce, but you can add whipped cream and berries (along with more chocolate chips), if desired.
Here’s what I did.
I used these ingredients.
Put gluten free flour in a mixing bowl. I used Pamela’s gluten free baking and pancake mix. Add cocoa, vanilla, eggs and milk.
Whisk all the ingredients together.
Pour the pancake batter a heated skillet with coconut oil. The batter is thick. Sprinkle chocolate chips on top of pancakes. If necessary, press chips down lightly with a fork. You can see that I added about 30-40 regular sized chocolate chips on each pancake. YES!
Turn pancakes over and cook other side. To assemble: stack pancakes. Drizzle with your favorite chocolate syrup or sauce, and sprinkle with chocolate chips on top for garnish. You can also add whipped cream and berries in the center for garnish, if desired.
Cocoa, chocolate chips in the batter, then covered with chocolate syrup and more chocolate chips as garnish. Yes, to die for!
If you love chocolate, this dessert (ahem), breakfast entree will delight you.
Each bite of Gluten Free Triple Chocolate Chip Pancakes is irresistible. I wanted to eat ALL of them, but had to wait for another time to finish them off. They are really quite hearty and filling for pancakes.
Here’s the recipe.
