Disclaimer: Do not eat these pancakes for breakfast. I know when you think pancakes you think breakfast. But in this case pancakes most certainly means dessert. Please be advised.
I’m not sure you should ever eat cookie dough or chocolate for breakfast in any way shape or form even if it is cleverly disguised in pancakes. I have a feeling the sweetness and the lack of nutrients would definitely throw you off for the rest of the day! I’ll admit though, in college I definitely had my early mornings where I went to the diner across the street and ordered chocolate chip pancakes. I guess that’s the problem about going to a college that’s located smack in the middle of Manhattan. There are 24-hour diners EVERYWHERE and you can order pancakes at ANY TIME.
It definitely threw me off, but after college I learned my lesson that maybe I should avoid eating pancakes for breakfast from now on. Especially ones that are store-bought or from restaurants that are most likely filled with lots of crap. You feel like you are just eating slices of airy sugared cardboard.
My love for pancakes came back when I finally accepted them for what they truly are: sweets. And boy do I love pancakes when they’re dessert!! So I reinvented the classic chocolate chip pancakes by not only making them vegan AND gluten-free but filling them up with lots of vegan cookie dough! Cause how upsetting is it when you eat some yummy cookie dough and then have a major tummy ache afterwards? NOT COOL.
These pancakes literally taste like cookies, and those balls of cookie dough on top! I LOVE it. And because it’s dessert, I cheated a bit and added a bit of leftover powdered sugar that I have laying around from back when I used to bake with NAUGHTY ingredients. I guess a little powdered sugar doesn’t hurt right?!
So do you ever have pancakes that are basically dessert for breakfast? I mean we were all kids once but sometimes we still like to act like it again!
