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! 😉
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 INCREDIBLE with a big fat scoop of creamy vanilla ice cream on top, but oh, I digress…
Please excuse my foodie ADD!
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!
Brownie Batter Pancakes with Cherries (GF)
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.
Plated, sugared, and cherrified!
Brownie Pancake bite with a cherry on top! 😉
And then, because I have a hard time eating anything for breakfast that doesn’t include some sort of nut butter…
Chocolate brownie + cherries + peanut butter drizzle = breakfast foodie coma!
And now, if you’ll excuse me, I’m going to distract myself from the fact that my plate of chocolatey-cherry peanut-buttery goodness is gone, meet up with my sis and make an impromptu road trip to Nashville, because after reading this post from Janetha the other day, I can’t wait any longer…must.have.Vibrams! 😉
Quick! What’s the first word you think of after hearing the following words?
2. Peanut butter
4. Road trip
Holy moly woman…what are you doing to me? I need those pancakes! How can you not have a great Sunday after starting it like that? Enjoy the day Heather!
Those pancakes look amazing – I had chocolate pancakes for breakfast this morning too! 🙂
Chocolate = dark/90%
Peanut Butter = ick (don’t like it)
Shopping = food
Road trip = travelling
Sunday = pancakes
Aww, I should have know I could trust you to think of pancakes after seeing the word Sunday! My fellow Pancake Sunday celebrator! Woo! And you like your chocolate darrrrrrrk! Go girlie!
I want these! I think I’m making peanut flour pancakes tomorrow, at least that’s the plan ; )
Chocolate- the darker the better
Peanut butter- SIAJ. Sex in a jar ! Lol
Shopping – addict , it’s bad!
Road trip – love them! Going on road trip to pa Wednesday!
Sunday- being lazy
Love ya girl!!
Sex in a Jar! Haha! LOVE it!!
This is too funny. I have been thinking about Vibrams all. day. long. I was hoping I wouldn’t, by chance, run into anyone else talking about them because that was going to push me over the edge…and here you go, getting Vibrams 😉 must. resist. temptation. (and pancakes, please? thanks.)
Give into it girl…it’s a sign!!!! Haha!
These look really good. I will have to look for a couple of the ingredients.
these look too good to be true! i find myself wanting sweet things for breakfast, sometimes it feels strange. but i would have no problem eating a batch of these babies!
i love that you asked about word associations. i think it’s so interesting to see people’s responses!
2. Peanut butter…cup
4. Road trip…can’t wait!
5. Sunday…holy 🙂
Thanks for you comment, Rachel! I tend to go back and forth with sweet and savory breakfasts, but lately, I can’t seem to settle my sweet tooth!
Oh, I’ve definitely gotten a kick out of everyone’s responses with the word association! 🙂
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.
1. Chocolate-Covered Katie
2. Peanut butter- oatmeal
3. Shopping- Sorry, wallet.
4. Road Trip- snacks!
5. Sunday- Church!
Aww, I love that you think of CCK when you see the word chocolate! LOVE Katie! <3
Def need to show paul these =) He’s fascinated by sweet breakfasts b/c he never ever sees them around here (unless its a sweet brekkie for dessert! YUM!!!) haha! These look like a dessert in my future.
you’re a pancake scientist my dear! love it!
Aww, thanks doll! I guess when I finally get to come see you, I’ll have to make P some P-cakes, huh? 😉

Brownies for breakfast? Yes please! These look amazing! 😀
1. Chocolate – bar
2. PB – sandwich
3. Shopping – spree
4. Road trip – mix cd
5. Sunday – relax
2. Peanut butter-balls
4. Road trip-long
Ok, I’m either really immature, or it’s late and I’m a bit delirious, but take a look at all of your responses in order…bahahaha! 😉
Gorgeous pancakes! I would love to have a bunch of cherries to get rid of 🙂 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.
Thanks you! And I absolutely love the Vibrams girl! I hope they can find a way into your life (and finances) soon! 🙂
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 🙂 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 🙂
i think i just drooled a bit. 😛
Chocolate and cherries? Oooo sign me up!
Chocolate – chips
PB – and jelly
Shopping – spree
Road trip – gas station 😯
Sunday – church
These look awesome! Do you think you could sub the brown rice flour for whole wheat?
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!
I think I “mmm-ed” through this whole post 🙂 Those brownie pancakes look delicious!
Chocolate: Dark chocolate
Peanut butter: Creamy
Shopping: grocery store
Road Trip: car sick
Sunday: Study day
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!
Haha! Sunday Funday sounds good too! 🙂
ahh I love the combo of chocolate and cherries & for breakfast omg it might be the best way to start the day!
