Instead of the usual maple syrup, I topped my pancakes with Homemade Chocolate Almond Butter.  I was too excited to eat the pancakes that I didn’t bother warming the nut butter beforehand  😉

That’s some chocolate bliss right there.


With love and good eats,

  1. I’m a big fan of spreading nut butters on pancakes instead of syrup and butter. And I want to faceplant into that stack of pancakes topped with your chocolate almond butter mmmmmm

  2. Oh man these sound good! Buckwheat pancakes are my favorite 🙂 Do you think that any kind of milk would do? I can drink rice milk, but not almond milk…. I’d assume so, but just to be safe 🙂

  3. These are so adorable. Weird how I’ve never made regular pancakes, all of the ones I’ve made before are protein pancakes. I don’t have any buckwheat flour though. Meh


  5. Healthy and delicious, love it!

  6. It is funny you post these today. I have been looking for buckwheat flour for months. Where do I find it? Do I have to go online? My grocery store doesn’t carry it in the pancake or flour isle. Thank you for posting this. My husband was beginning to think I was making it up. My Mom used to make us buckwheat pancakes all the time. My Dad loved them!

  7. Weirdly, I’m not a huge fan of pancakes and every time I do eat pancakes, I make sure to put enough nutella on them.
    Maybe chocolate pancakes would do the trick for me!

  8. These sound so tasty (especially with the chocolate almond butter!!). There are on my “to make soon” list! And I love your nail polish colour, btw. Very cute 🙂

  9. Would like to make this without the sweetener, like Truvia. Can I just drop it from the recipe, or must I have a substitute?

  19. I followed the recipe but it didn’t work. The mixture had a way too much liquid but when it is in, you can’t pour it out …
