Chocolate & Nuttzo Nut Butter Pancakes!

There are a lot of breakfast recipes out there, but these Nuttzo Butter Pancakes are really something special. With just five ingredients and ten minutes to make, this recipe is perfect for weekday mornings. When you wake up in the morning with a grumbly tummy, it can be hard to get your kids moving and ready for school – that’s where pancakes come in! These Nuttzo Butter Pancakes will fill them up and keep them going until lunch time.

Let’s start by looking at every ingredient:

– Nuttzo Butter (Nuttzo Chocolate & Nuttzo Hazelnut)

– All Purpose Flour

– Sugar

– Baking Powder

– Salt

As we learned in the first paragraph, these pancakes are made with just five ingredients and ten minutes. The simplicity of this recipe makes it perfect for a quick weekday morning breakfast or brunch. After you mix all of your dry ingredients together – flour, sugar, salt and baking powder – add some milk to make them into doughy batter. You’ll want to let that rest for about five minutes so it can thicken up before cooking on the griddle at medium heat until browned. Once they’re done cooking, top them off with whipped cream or a drizzle of Nuttzo Hazelnut or Chocolate spread.

This recipe will make about ten pancakes, so feel free to freeze the rest in an airtight container for another day! You could also replace some of the milk with orange juice and add fresh fruit like strawberries or bananas which would be delicious too.

Nuttzo Butter is not only perfect on these nutty chocolatey pancakes but it’s great on toast, waffles, crepes, baked goods – you name it! Give this easy breakfast idea a go today and let me know what you think!

Additional notes:

-When measuring flour, pack it down and level it off with a knife.

-You can use any nut butter you like in these pancakes – almond is great!

-If using raw eggs, just omit the baking powder.

-Use real maple syrup for best results. If not available, substitute honey or agave nectar to taste.

What to do if you’re missing an ingredient?

If you’re missing an ingredient, substitute with something similar. For example, if you don’t have milk in the fridge and need to make a baked good or sauce buttermilk is needed for – then use whole milk instead of low-fat dairy products. The same goes for eggs – swap them out as well! You can also replace your favorite nuts with unsalted cashews; they are less expensive and will give a smoother texture instead of crunchy ones.

What about flavors?

The only additional ingredients you need to make Nuttzo Butter Pancakes are flour, baking powder and salt. That’s it! You can add in a few special flavors if desired like cinnamon or vanilla extract for even more delicious flavor options (I personally love adding cocoa powder too).

Nuttzo also has other butters so that you could try something different than chocolate one time – they offer Original Flavor, Maple Pecan and Cinnamon Raisin Swirl varieties of buttery goodness. I’m thinking it might be fun to use the maple pecan this weekend for some breakfast pancakes with fresh tangerines… yummm!

In addition to all-natural nutty tasting peanut butter ingredients like peanuts from Georgia, almonds from California, cashews from Vietnam and macadamias from Brazil. Nuttzo also includes a touch of salt to bring out the flavors – making it easy for anyone with nut allergies or other dietary restrictions to enjoy these yummy butters!

Nuttzo’s Butter Pancakes are so simple, you can make them in minutes using ingredients that you already have at home. In addition to being quick and convenient though, these pancakes actually taste better than those made with butter because they don’t leave behind an oily residue on your dishes or fingertips!

FAQs

Question: What is Nuttzo Butter?

Answer: It’s a cream-and-oat flour blend that you can sprinkle on your pancakes or use as the base for any recipe.

Question: Is it healthy to eat Nuttzos in pancake form?

Answer: The whole idea of this recipe is to make something indulgent and delicious, not necessarily something low calorie. That being said, the Nuttzo butter has no added sugar and it combines almond meal with wheat germ, so there are plenty of nutrients here!

Question: What kind of chocolate do I need?

Answer: You want dark cocoa powder – we recommend Ghirardelli unsweetened cocoa powder (or if necessary just add more sweetener). If you’re out of cocoa, you can use a tablespoon or two of Nuttzo Butter as an alternative.

Question: What kind of sweetener do I need?

Answer: You want to add about one teaspoon for each pancake you make – we recommend using honey, agave syrup, molasses or confectioners sugar (or if necessary just add more unsweetened cocoa powder).
