If you read the Belgium Waffle with the Works post from yesterday and think it sounds really yummy but super unrealistic for a family on the go or weekday morning fare, then you’re going to love this quick (I mean super quick) delicious alternative. I’m not putting this one in recipe form, because I’m not really “making” anything today. I’m simply taking the similar nutrient-rich ingredients from yesterday’s waffle recipe and making super quick chocolate-almond pancakes.
The secret ingredient here is your favorite boxed, bagged or even bottled pancake mix. Prepare the batter per instructions and right after you pour the batter into the skillet for cooking, plop a few chocolate chips and slivered almonds into the cooking cake. Continue cooking as you normally would and flip to cook the other side. You can top your pancake with strawberries and whipped cream for a similar taste as yesterday’s Belgium waffle, or you might try peanut butter, bananas or the classic butter and syrup.
