Dark Orange Pancakes

If you followed my blog about a year ago, you’ll know my obsession with dark chocolate orange pancakes.  Well my friends…that obsession is back with no shame at all.  I just think something about the chocolate and the orange tanginess is like a mini miracle worker.

Dark orange pancakes

½ cup flour

¼ cup dark chocolate powder

1 egg

½-1 cup water depending on your consistency

1 tablespoon orange extract

1 tablespoon grated orange peel

1 tablespoon baking powder

*I don’t add ANY sweetener to this because I like it that way…if you aren’t into tart things you might want too.

Mix dry ingredients to wet ingredients then finally add the orange peel LAST.  Mix and pour on the griddle.

topped with greek yogurt because that is what I was feeling.

So that is that.  I highly recommend them and the effort to grate an orange peel is worth it.

Question for you: Fill in the blank: Chocolate+__________=my favorite.
