Brownie Batter Pancakes...

  I have been looking for new recipes that are low fat and tasty and came across this recipe on Chocolate Covered Katie . I made some this morning and decided I would make a few changes, but this was a fun and delicious way to enjoy breakfast. This is for one large serving and it is 4 Weight Watcher Points+, but that includes 1/3 serving of milk. So, drink 2/3 cup milk and for 5 points you have breakfast and get in one dairy. I topped mine with a sliced banana and 1 tsp maple syrup. The banana adds some fiber and really fills you up.

Brownie Batter Pancakes

Servings: 1 • Size: 6-8 silver-dollar pancakes  4 WW Points+
  • 1/4 cup flour [3 pts]
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • ¼ tsp baking soda [if using buttermilk or yogurt]
  • 1 Tbsp Hershey’s Special Dark unsweetened cocoa powder (or dutch cocoa)
  • 1  tsp sugar pinch of salt (optional)
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp unsweetened applesauce
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1/3 C skim milk, non fat yogurt, nondairy milk of your choice [1 pt]


Mix dry ingredients very well, then add wet and stir in with a fork till everything is mixed together. Spray a medium hot frying pan with PAM [I like to use cast iron] and fry small bits of batter at a time. I did mine in about 2-3 batches and sprayed lightly between batches. There are only 130 calories in this entire recipe.  I add once sliced banana and 1 tsp maple syrup or  you could add 1 tsp of Hershey's chocolate syrup [no points] and omitted the sugar in the recipe. 2T of canned [under pressure] whipped cream would be wonderful and adds no points.

Take Care,
