Dark Chocolate Oatmeal Pancakes

My daughter loves pancakes! I don’t know too many kids that don’t! It is our goal that we make each meal a little bit healthier without taking all the fun out of food. Ive tried so many super healthy pancake recipes that she completely turned her nose up at but I’m happy to say that I think we found a winner! This recipe has great texture and all the fluffiness of the pancakes that we all grew up on with half the calories!
What makes a pancake great to me are crispy edges! If it doesn’t have the crispy edges then it aint right!  This recipe allowed for me to still have those same textures and not to mention they tasted great!!
I told Kristian we were making pancakes and she completely disregarded me. I guess she wasn’t getting her hopes up for fear of disappointment. As she started to see these pancakes look like my fluffy buttermilk recipe she seemed a lot more interested!
I can be honest and say that these even surprised me!
I hope you give them a try so that they can surprise you too!
