As many of you know, I am a nanny to three delightful little ones. Or was. Cause they moved. All the way to California. And I live in New York.
But as I type up these food blogs and go through my pictures, it is bittersweet and precious because I come across so many memories…so many moments with “my babies.” You see…Tabby cooks for people she loves…and Tabby loves “her babies.” So I made them treats.
These pancakes are one of those treats.
I made them pancakes every Wednesday. They LOOOOOOOVED pancake day. Usually they would ask for chocolate chips in them, but the day I created these beauties…they were all out of chocolate chips. I knew little Eoin would be devastated, so I did some quick thinking. As I searched the cupboards I found a cup of Nutkao…also know as a different brand of Nutella. My boss had brought it home one day and as I unpacked her groceries had told me “Yeah…that was an impulse purchase…I dunno.” There it stood in the cupboard, unused…and so I figured, why not?! Eoi wants chocolate pancakes, I’ll give him chocolate pancakes!!!
It was sooooo easy.
And super tasty.
Yes. I cheated. I took a couple of bites. I could say it was for the sake of the blog, but really…the big smiles on their faces and the clean plates should have been evidence enough for me 😉
So, here’s what you need:
- 1 C Gluten Free Bisquick
- 1 C Milk
- 2 Tbsp Vegetable Oil
- 1 Egg
- A Big Spoonful of Nutella or Nutkao (Note…I checked online and Nutella is gluten free, but I cannot find any info on Nutkao)
And here’s how you do it (I don’t think I even have to tell ya)
- Whisk together all ingredients in a bowl.
- Cover a pan with a small amount of oil or butter and turn on medium heat.
- Pour small ladlefulls into the pan, cook until it starts to get bubbly and browned on the other side…then flip!
- Serve and observe the smiles 🙂
Note: The Nutella/Nutako will change the texture slightly, so don’t wait for them to look exactly like normal pancakes to flip. They are a tiny bit more cakey, but still warm, chocolatey, and delicious 🙂
Gather your ingredients! Nutella or Nutkao, Gluten Free Bisquick, milk, vegetable oil, and an egg…
Whisk together in a bowl, and drool at the chocolatey goodness…
Pour into a hot, greased pan in small ladlefulls….
Put on a plate and top as you please…the boys just wanted butter and syrup as always 😉 Can you imagine this with a sprinkle of powdered sugar and a dollop of whipped cream?! Whaaaaat? I know I’m a healthy food blogger…but I told you we can have cheat treats now and then! 😉
Now serve and observe those smiles that steal your heart and make it sing!!! Sweet boys!!! See what I mean? They’re precious!! You probably miss them and you haven’t even met them! 😉 But seriously. Look at those smiles. Those smiles say “This Wednesday morning treat is kid approved!!”
Enjoy!!! Do you have a Nutella creation to share?! What’s your favorite pancake variation?
