Chocolate Brownie Paleo Pancakes

My definition of “clean eating” doesn’t mean you need to sacrifice FUN eating, just make your dish with ingredients that don’t cause inflammation and pour gut health!

Growing up, I had brownies for every birthday.  I wasn’t a huge fan of birthday cake, so my mom would always make me a batch of yummy brownies.  The other morning I was craving some yummy brownies, but it was like 7:30am….is it acceptable to eat brownies for breakfast???  I say YES!  Especially when it’s made with ingredients that keep me happy!

You MUST make these.  They are INCREDIBLE!  Sometimes I’m just in the mood for the pancake by itself, but more often then not, I like to pair the sweetness of the chocolate brownie pancake with a savory side of eggs and bacon! This meal is the bomb.com!

  3. In a smaller mixing bowl, combine dry ingredients; flour, cacao, baking soda, baking powder and pinch of salt.
  4. Pour mixed dry ingredients into wet mixture. Stir until combined.
  5. Heat skillet to medium high and add scoop of batter. I usually use a 1/3 cup measuring scoop.
  6. Cook one side for 2-3 minutes or until you can get your spatula underneath easily without messing with integrity of pancake.
  7. Flip and press pancake down with spatula. Cook this side for 1-2 minutes.

  1. Omg Tiffanie, these are heaven! I made them this morning and most of them are gone already. Defenitely gonna try some more recepies of yours (next will be tomato soup I think, it looks delicious).

  2. It would be very helpful if you could measure your sweet potatoes or add a picture of “medium sweet potatoes”.. I find sweet potatoes vary greatly in size and I don’t want to waste all the ingredients by doing it wrong. They look delicious!

    1. Hi Helena! Next time I will, however, you really can’t go wrong even if you end up adding MORE than necessary! Even if they are bigger than normal, that is perfectly fine. You can always throw in an additional egg or a wee bit of water! You really can’t mess up these pancakes!

    1. You could use coconut flour, however, you’ll have to experiment with the liquid levels since coconut flour really absorbs liquid fast.

    1. Yes! I always make a whole bunch and then store some in the fridge and some in the freezer! they reheat just fine!

  3. Thanks for the great recipe Tiffanie! I love making a big batch of these on Sunday &taking all the leftovers to work for the week to eat with almond butter for snacks.

  4. My kiddo loves these and I love how I can feel like I splurged without actually sending myself into a sugar overload. I don’t always use honey in mine and they still are fantastic

  5. I have been toying with making these for a while, it’s a snow day here for my kids so i’m stuck at home and i made them. OMG so delish!! I had them with cashew butter and raspberries – they were amazing!! Thanks for posting the recipe.

  6. I questioned the direction to use medium high heat, but I wanted to follow the recipe exactly since this was my first time making them. Barely a minute went by before I realized that the pancakes were burning. I usually cook pancakes at medium low. Even after lowering the temp, I found the outside cooked way faster than the inside. However, I love the combination of ingredients, and after pitching the burned batch, I was able to make this recipe work. Nobody else mentioned encountering the same thing as me, so maybe I did something wrong?

    1. Sorry about the burned pancakes! Different ovens/skillets sometimes cook at varying levels based on a myriad of factors, so definitely cook on the setting that is right for you! I’m glad you were able to make them work on the second batch!
