I came across this recipe while trying to find a healthy alternative to the frozen chocolate chip waffles my kids eat everyday. I am thrilled to say that my kids love these! As others suggested, I used applesauce in lieu of oil and omitted the sugar. I used old fashioned oats because that was all I had on hand. I ground 1/4 c in blender and left the other 1/4 cup whole. Rather than add the chocolate chips to the batter, I put 6 chocolate chips in each pancake after the bottom crust had formed. To serve, I sprinkled the pancakes with powdered sugar. My only complaint is that the recipe as written only made 6 pancakes (using a 1/4 cup scoop).
I added 1/4 C Flax seed and left out the sugar and salt altogether. With all those chocolate chips there is no need for more sugar. Next time I will put in less Chocolate chips since they were burning before the pancake was done. and I will add more oatmeal. They were good and satisfied my pancake craving. Thanks.
These were so good! I did make a few subs. I used unsweetened vanilla almond milk, applesauce instead of oil, spelt flour, omitted sugar and only used 1/4 cup of Ghirardelli dark chocolate chips. I also used coconut oil to fry them in. These were truly decadent, like eating dessert for breakfast! This will become a regular, for sure, thanks for posting!
