The other day, I watched my neighbor’s little boy for the afternoon. Mr. M is in Kindergarten and a couple years older than Otto. Otto had the best day ever (because older kids are SO awesome), but having three boys running around the house reminded me why Mike and I decided we’re done having kids.

Two I can handle, three is…interesting. Thank goodness Mr. M is old enough to talk at a level I can understand and is basically self-sufficient. The whole day was a whirlwind or toys, crying, yelling, Cars movies, and a trip to the park. At the end of the afternoon, I was grateful for it being just my two boys and me. Think I need a pedicure now. Or maybe some yummy pancakes.

I get pancake cravings. Maybe it’s the year I spent working at IHOP – my first job waiting tables – but those fluffy stacks of deliciousness call to me. These Chocolate-Hazelnut Pancakes are crazy good you guys. They’re light, fluffy, and thin. Which basically means that even after six pancakes, I fee like I would still have more. Which is weird because I’m usually a 2-3 pancakes girl. I kind of love that these pancakes aren’t super heavy so I don’t end up in a breakfast coma at 9am. They’re the perfect way to treat yourself on the weekend or a fun weekday surprise for the kids.

Recipe type: Breakfast
Serves: about 12 pancakes
Ingredients
  • 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup chocolate-hazelnut spread (like Nutella)
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 1/4 cups milk
  • Mini chocolate chips (optional)
  • Hazelnuts, finely chopped (optional)
Instructions
  1. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, and salt; set aside.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together the chocolate-hazelnut spread, egg, and sugar until smooth and combined. Add the milk and whisk to combine.
  3. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients, and whisk until combined. (It's okay if there are a few lumps.)
  4. Heat a large skillet or griddle over medium heat. Spray with a light coat of non-stick cooking spray or brush with melted butter.
  5. Pour 1/4 cup of the batter into the skillet. Sprinkle some chocolate chips & hazelnuts on the pancake batter, if desired. Cook for 2 to 3 minutes. Turn when edges look dry and bubbles appear on the surface of the pancake. Cook 1 to 2 minutes longer or until browned on the bottom.
  6. Transfer pancakes to a plate. Spread butter on top, stack 'em up, and douse them in syrup. Serve immediately.
Notes
You can substitute any chocolate-nut spread you like. I've made this recipe with Reese's spreads and it's delicious.
