These healthy chocolate chip pancakes will become one of your new favorite breakfast ideas! I personally love them and I make them using oats instead of flour and instead of chocolate chips I just chop some dark chocolate! Very easy, quick and delicious healthy pancake recipe!

It’s been a long time since I’ve last written here. I feel embarrassed and like the most horrible person in the world.

But enough with the guilt trips. Let’s get to the excuses.

In my defense a lot of things have happened:

1. I’m now 32 (happy birthday to me, yay and crying a little);

2. I was on vacation for a few days (hard to recover from that – it takes me WEEKS);

3. I was changing the whole look of the site in order to make it easier for all of us to find the posts. This made me so tired that I couldn’t even type;

4. I finally came up with an awesome tagline for this blog, it is: Feel good, not guilty. Really love it. And it took me like what? Only two years to come up with this? I’m smelling a secret genius.

Now let’s get to the good stuff. The pancake stuff.

See, I can’t believe I haven’t shared this recipe yet. I’ve been making these pancakes for years! We’re talking probably 2-3 times a week, whenever I have 15 minutes in the morning and chocolate at home. So yes, 2-3 times a week.

Once you try them you’ll be going back again and again and again.

It’s the kind of recipe that isn’t overwhelmingly sweet, but you can’t stop eating.

I think I just described pancakes.

These chocolate chip pancakes are healthy

Here are the changes I made that make these pancakes healthy:

  • I made these chocolate chip pancakes without flour, but ground oats, using eggs or chia eggs for my vegan friends, some honey/maple syrup/agave or coconut nectar instead of sugar, nuts and very very dark chocolate.
  • Oh and some coconut oil for the cooking instead of butter.
  • Instead of milk I used water <- it works!
  • Instead of whipped cream and high-sugar chocolate sauce, I topped my pancakes with nut butter and berries or other fruits – like banana if I don’t add the chocolate chips (<- I hate banana with chocolate).

Now these pancakes are high-fiber, high-protein and rich in essential nutrients like iron, zinc, healthy fats plus some antioxidants.
