Sunday mornings are MADE for pancakes! Before we had kids, every Sunday morning was the same relaxing routine: coffee in bed, reading the Sunday paper (ok, more like looking at the ads), watching the Today Show, and of course, pancakes! Ahhh, those were the days!

Now, little ones sneak in for some “snuggle hug” family cuddles, the Today Show usually gets turned to Bubble Guppies, and the paper gets torn apart by little hands, but it’s still somehow exactly how I like it.

Now that I’m a little older and more concerned about my health and quality of food I consume, the boxed mix pancakes have been replaced with something a little healthier to fuel my body with the energy I’ll need to keep up with the kids or power through a workout.

When I was on prep for my bikini competition, I was so limited on food choices that I had to get a little creative to keep myself from getting bored with the same old boring meals, and that’s when I started making these chocolatey pancakes – perfect for Sunday mornings!
