For the pancakes
  • 1 1/3 cups (185g) all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup (25g) cocoa powder
  • 1 tbsp Nutella
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/3 cup (65g) granulated sugar
  • 1 cup (240 ml) whole milk
  • Butter/oil for frying

For the peanut butter syrup

  • 1/2 cup/175g honey
  • 1/4 cup/60g smooth peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup (85g) chocolate chips or chunks to decorate
  • Spray cream


In a large bowl, sift together flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, and salt (or whisk well with a whisk). Set aside.

In a separate medium bowl, whisk together egg and sugar until well combined. Add Nutella and mix well then add the  milk and whisk. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and stir just until combined. Do not over mix. Set batter aside and make the peanut butter sauce. In microwave safe bowl or measuring cup, combine syrup and peanut butter. Microwave for 30 seconds. Stir. Microwave thirty seconds more. Stir until creamy and well combined.

Heat a griddle or skillet over medium heat. Coat with butter or oil. For each pancake, drop 1/4 cup of batter onto skillet. Cook 1-2 minutes, until surface of pancakes have some bubbles and the bottom appears to be done. Flip carefully and cook another 1-2 minutes. Transfer to a plate and if you want you can cover the plate loosely with aluminum foil to keep warm. Coat the skillet with butter or oil before every pancake or batch of pancakes to prevent sticking.

Stack the pancakes and pour over the peanut butter syrup and sprinkle on the chocolate chips and finish with spray cream on top!
