With my latest visit to Texas, I couldn’t help but notice something really popular there…Combining the flavor of chocolate and chili pepper. At first I was a tad nervous to give this a whirl but I quickly lightened up…because if I didn’t like it, I wouldn’t share it and I would make something else and you never would have known I tried it. Isn’t life easy?
Chocolate Chili Pancakes
When googling around, I noticed that most “chocolate chili” breakfasts were about the same recipe and were paired with a raspberry topping. Well I didn’t have raspberries so I decided to nix that and work with what I had on hand.
2/3 cup flour
¼ cup dark cocoa powder (I used hersheys dark cocoa powder)
1/8 cup stevia
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon red chili flakes (I don’t why I even had those just hanging out at my house…the more you add the more spicy it will be)
1 teaspoon cinnamon
½-1 cup milk (water works too) depending on how thick you like your pancakes. I generally use about 2/3 but don’t really measure.
Mix dry ingredients to wet ingredients and cook on your griddle at 350.
Well obviously if I’m sharing it with you I enjoyed it. I wasn’t sure how I’d enjoy the sweet and savory combination but let’s just say…I do.
Question for you: Ever had the combination of chocolate and chili?
