Chocolatelove: Gluten-free Chocolate Pancakes with Peanut Butter Sauce!

I’m having a hard time putting my feelings into words when it comes to this month’s bloghop topic. One thing that I can say is that I absolutely love it! I’m so excited for all of the delicious recipes that will be floating around before and even after Valentine’s day, although, I don’t think that my waistline is. πŸ˜‰ I already have so many ideas whirling around my head, I can’t wait to spoil you all with decadent recipes that seduce you into making them. But, don’t worry, I’ll sneak in a few healthy ones here and there so as not to be so guilt inducing.

The bloghop, this month, is filled with so many amazing blogs! I love that I’m able to be a part of it, and continue to share the foodie love. Here’s a list of all of the bloggers that are participating!

Serves: Approx. 3


  • 1 Cup Rolled Oats
  • 1/2 Cup Bob’s Red Mill Gluten Free Flour
  • 2 Tbsp. Ground Flaxseed
  • 1/3 Cup Cocoa Powder
  • 3/4 tsp. Baking Powder
  • 1/2 tsp. Baking Soda
  • 1/4 tsp. Salt
  • 1 Cup Water or Non-Dairy Milk
  • 2-3 Tbsp. Agave Nectar
  • 2 tsp. Melted Coconut Oil
  • 2 tsp. Vanilla Extract
  • 1 Tbsp. Club Soda


  • 3 Tbsp. Maple Syrup
  • 2 Tbsp. Peanut Butter
  • 1/4 tsp. Vanilla Extract


  1. Place all ingredients, from the Oats to the Club soda into a blender and pureΓ© until completely smooth. Let the batter sit for 10-15 minutes and warm a pan over medium heat, coat it with a thin layer of oil if you do not have a non-stick pan.
  2. Once the pan is warm and the batter has set, pour your pancakes to be 4-5″ wide. Wait until there are many air bubbles/holes coming out of the top before flipping over, just be careful not to burn them (you may need to lower the heat just a little bit).
  3. While the pancakes are cooking, heat your oven to 175Β°F or the lowest temperature setting. Keep a cookie sheet in the oven and place the pancakes on it to keep them warm while you use the rest of the batter.
  4. In a small bowl or cup with a pour spout, warm up the maple syrup, peanut butter, and vanilla together; either in a double boiler or in the microwave. Stir the mixture together until it is creamy and a little thicker than syrup.
  5. Top the pancakes with the peanut butter sauce and indulge! πŸ™‚

These pancakes tasted great, and the peanut butter sauce really set them apart. It was hard not to eat them all! Good thing they are extremely filling and I also had my sleepy boyfriend to help me out with eating them. πŸ˜€ I’d love to add some chocolate chips to the recipe, but I think it is rich enough as it stands. The gluten-free flour keeps the pancakes pleasantly moist and the texture is great! I’m still having dreams about the peanut butter sauce, though; I might just put that stuff on everything!

  1. Now I know what my husband is making me for a Valentine’s Day breakfast. What scrumptious looking pancakes–and they’re gluten free as well. Lovely! I love the idea of peanut butter sauce as well. Thanks for this idea!

  2. Love this idea! I’ve had peanut butter syrup over banana pancakes and it was all I could do not to drink the stuff. I can’t imagine how fabulous it would be over chocolate pancakes!

    • Oh gosh, over banana pancakes? That sounds incredible. I’ll have to try that out next time!

    • It has a reaction with the baking soda and creates more air inside the dense pancake mix so that they are lighter.

  3. Ahh, I love peanut butter and chocolate together! This recipe looks like a great excuse for me to get my chocolate/peanut butter fix in the morning (:

  4. Yup, all it takes is chocolate and peanut butter to keep me reading πŸ˜‰ If you like Bob’s Red Mill, I like using their oat, coconut and almond flour…nice change ups for flavor/texture – coconut flour is my go-to ingredient for pancakes. πŸ™‚
