Whole Grain Chocolate Pancakes

makes 6-8

Prep and cook time: 15 minutes

Cost: $.52

(flour: .20, cocoa: .10, milk: .20, other stuff: .02)

1 C whole wheat flour (I used white whole wheat)

1 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp baking soda

good dash salt

3 Tbsp cocoa

1 1/4 C milk

2 Tbsp oil

Combine dry ingredients. Whisk in milk and oil. (If this is too thick for your liking add a wee bit more milk.)

Pour onto a medium hot skillet that has been greased. Cook until bottoms are cooked (they'll have a bit of a golden edge even though they're dark) and flip, cooking another minute or so until cooked through. 

You can serve with syrup, but I love these with a glop of homemade whipped cream and a sprinkle of fruit. 

Tip: Making a big batch? Keep your pancakes warm on a cookie sheet in an oven set at 200 degrees.
