Pancakes Recipe

Makes 5-6 pancakes


1 cup of pancake mix (I use my gluten-free Bisquick pancake mix)

1 egg

1 cup milk (your choice of type, I find buttermilk makes a light fluffy pancake as does coconut milk)

2 Tablespoons sunflower oil

2 Tablespoons cocoa powder, unsweetened


Prepare large skillet or griddle by coating with your choice of oil or non-stick spray. Set aside.

Prepare pancake mix as directed on box, adding in cocoa powder. Mix until blended.

Place skillet on medium heat and let warm up.

Pour pancake mix into skillet and cook until batter bubbles. Flip pancake over and cook until done. Place on plate and serve.
