Double Chocolate Hazelnut Pancakes / Nutella Pancakes | Breakfast Recipes

A chocolaty treat to start the day will surely keep you in high spirits. My little one is a big fan of pancakes and becomes super excited if I say "Pancakes for Breakfast". For your holiday breakfast try these delicious Nutella pancakes. I came across this recipe in a book I borrowed from the library. I tweaked the recipe a little and tried it for our weekend breakfast. Topped with berries and maple syrup it is a delicious breakfast.

All purpose flour - 3/4 cup
Whole wheat flour - 1/2 cup
Cocoa powder - 1 tbsp
Baking powder - 2 tsp
Salt - 1/4 tsp
Sugar - 1 tbsp
Egg - 1
Milk - 1 cup (or more as needed)
Vanilla extract - 2 tsp
Nutella / Chocolate Hazelnut spread - 3 tbsp
Olive oil / any cooking oil - 1 tbsp + more for the pan

Whisk the flours, baking powder, salt and sugar in a wide mixing bowl. In another mixing bowl whisk the egg and nutella until smooth. This could take some time. Add the vanilla, oil and milk and combine well. Add the milk mixture to the flour and use a whisk to incorporate. Tiny lumps are ok. If you feel the batter is pretty thick, use one or two tbsps of milk to thin it out. 
Heat a non-stick pan in medium and pour about 1/4 cup of the batter in the center. Allow it to spread on its own. When bubbles start appearing on the surface, use a spatula to flip it and cook for another minute. Serve hot with maple syrup and fresh fruit of your choice.
You could use all all-purpose flour or all wheat flour for this recipes. Butter can be substituted for oil.
