Brownie Batter Pancakes with Cherries

Good morning, dolls!

I hope you are all having a great start to your Sunday morning! I know I sure am…well I was, that is until I finished my plate of brownies pancakes that I “mmm-ed” my way through earlier this morning!

I’ve had a huge thing of cherries in my fridge for about a week now. And when I say huge, I mean three POUNDS of cherry-goodness people…yeah, I totally went to Sam’s Club hungry! Definitely going to be freezing the rest of the container today since I can’t seem to eat them fast enough! Oh, and if you own a cherry pitter and you’re free later, by all means, c’mon over! I’ll make you pancakes! πŸ˜‰

Brownie Batter Pancakes with Cherries

With a fridge full of cherries, my mind naturally went the chocolate/cherry route this morning when it came time celebrate Pancake Sunday. Isn’t that the first thing everybody thinks of once they hear the word “cherry”? Well, that and maybe ice cream…oh my gosh these would be INCREDIBLEΒ with a big fat scoop of creamy vanilla ice cream on top, but oh, I digress…

Please excuse my foodie ADD!

Brownie Batter Pancakes with Cherries 2Ok, now I’m back on track!

Originally, I was just going to go with “chocolate cherry pancakes” but I didn’t think that did them justice. I’m not sure if it was the addition of the coconut oil (love!) or what, but I swear to you, these pancakes tasted just like fluffy cake-like brownies!

Prep Time: 5-10 minutes

Cook Time: 8-10 minutes

Keywords: stovetop breakfast vegetarian gluten-free nut-free cocoa powder brown rice flour Pancake Sunday

Ingredients (Serves 1)

  • 1/3 cup brown rice flour
  • 1 tablespoon cocoa powder
  • 1 scoop chocolate protein powder (15g scoop)
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 – 1 full packet of stevia
  • 1 egg white
  • 2 teaspoons coconut oil
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 1 teaspoon NuNaturals cocoa bean extract (or vanilla)
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh cherries, plus more for topping


1. Heat a non-stick skillet over medium-high heat and coat with cooking spray
2. Combine flour, cocoa powder, protein powder, baking powder, and stevia in a medium-sized bowl and whisk together to break up any clumps.
3. In a separate bowl, whisk together egg white, coconut oil, milk, and extract.
4. Add wet ingredients to dry and stir until all the flour is incorporated.
5. Add cherries to batter and stir to combine.
6. Spoon batter onto skillet, forming 4 small pancakes, and allow to cook for about 3-4 minutes per side.
7. Try your best not to lick the brownie batter goodness out of the bowl…or you could be a rebel like me and do it anyway!
8. Once the cakes are finished cooking, top with fresh chopped cherries and a light dusting of powdered sugar.

      Oh, I’ve definitely gotten a kick out of everyone’s responses with the word association! πŸ™‚

  7. Emily says:

    Those are beautiful! Just calling them “brownie batter” probably makes them taste better than “chocolate.” I love the chocolate cherry combo but I never want to pit them.

    2. Peanut butter- oatmeal
    3. Shopping- Sorry, wallet.
    4. Road Trip- snacks!

  12. Lauren says:

    Gorgeous pancakes! I would love to have a bunch of cherries to get rid of πŸ™‚ My sister bought Vibrams a couple weeks ago and I admit I was tempted to get a pair too, but my wallet disagreed and reminded me that I have rent to pay first.

    • kissmybroccoli says:

      Thanks you! And I absolutely love the Vibrams girl! I hope they can find a way into your life (and finances) soon! πŸ™‚

  13. No lie, these look beyond INCREDIBLE! I’m sure they tasted just as great as they look. And lucky for me, I get to try them out myself soon– a week, to be exact πŸ™‚ Can’t wait to get creative with you; we’ll have a blast in the kitchen! I’m already dreaming about what we’ll come up with πŸ™‚

  14. Lizzie says:

    Shopping – spree
    Road trip – gas station 😯
    Sunday – church

  16. These look awesome! Do you think you could sub the brown rice flour for whole wheat?

    • kissmybroccoli says:

      Most definitely! I think just about any flour would do, I just needed an excuse to use some of my stash of brown rice flour! Haha!

  17. Alexis says:

    I think I “mmm-ed” through this whole post πŸ™‚ Those brownie pancakes look delicious!

    Chocolate: Dark chocolate
    Peanut butter: Creamy
    Shopping: grocery store
    Road Trip: car sick
    Sunday: Study day

  18. Sunday Funday!

    oh you meant the words separately?

    Well i think all of them put together = Sunday Funday and i’m sticking with that!

    pancakes look yummy. i always add protein to my pancakes, which all i have is chocolate so i guess i always get chocolate pancakes? but to add more cocoa and peanut butter would be divine!

  19. Kate says:

    ahh I love the combo of chocolate and cherries & for breakfast omg it might be the best way to start the day!
