Stack of Easy Gluten Free Chocolate Oatmeal Pancakes with Chocolate sauce and chocolate whipped cream

You’ve heard the saying “April showers bring May flowers” right?

Well, y’all, it’s been showering here in Northeast-ish Georgia through most of February and March and those May flowers have already started blooming – in March!

With azaleas in all their vibrant glory, blooming trees in all shades of green, and wisteria that seems to grow in the most hopeless of areas, spring has always been the most colorful season for me. And, those colors seem to pop even more so on grey, drizzly days, like today.

Last year when my daughter and I were hiking through Short Sands Trail near The Oregon coast with a group of new friends, I was overjoyed to find out that I wasn’t the only one who thought so when a chap in the group pointed out how a gray, drizzly day really makes the colors around pop. Reds are redder, greens are greener, and blues are just more mesmerizing.

But, unfortunately, it’s hard for me to echo my sentiments of the outdoors, while I am indoors. That sounded confusing – right?

What I was trying to say is that while I like a gray-drizzly day while I am out in it, I tend to want to sit around and wallow when I’m inside my home. And, I’m not a fan of wallowing.

So, I chose to make something chocolatey (like this stack of Easy Chocolate Oatmeal Pancakes) as rumor has it that chocolate is an antidepressant! Chocolate = a ray of sunshine indoors, for dramatic souls like my daughter and I. Right now I’m so glad I gave up on giving up chocolate for lent!

Life Extension Organic Antioxidant Rainforest Blend Coffee

This stack of Chocolate Oatmeal Pancakes are so easy to make. Just eight simple ingredients that you probably have lying around your kitchen, such as:
rolled oats,
baking powder,
milk of your choice,
and brewed Life Extension® Rainforest Blend coffee.

Ingredients to make Chocolate (Mocha) Pancakes

Just a little Life Extension® Rainforest Blend coffee in the pancakes as well as the chocolate sauce seems to multiply that chocolate flavor I cannot seem to get enough of.

Coffee is naturally packed with plenty of antioxidants. However, traditional roasting techniques strip coffee beans of these health-promoting compounds. Life Extension® Rainforest Blend medium-dark roast antioxidant coffee comes from 100% USDA certified organic Arabica beans prepared using a special HealthyRoast® process that preserves potent antioxidants, is easier on the stomach, and has a rich and delicious flavor.

Life Extension Organic Antioxidant Rainforest Blend Coffee and Chocolate Pancakes For Breakfast

Getting back to these Easy Chocolate Oatmeal Pancakes, they are very similar to these Easy Oatmeal Pancakes I reshared on here recently.

The chocolate sauce that accompanies them is simply chocolate chips melted together with a splash of dairy free milk and brewed Life Extension® Rainforest Blend coffee. And the whipped cream is dairy free whipped cream mixed with cocoa and a sprinkling of sugar.

A Forkful of a Stack of Easy Mocha Oatmeal Pancakes

We threw in some strawberries too and ended up dipping them in the leftover chocolate coffee sauce. I have a confession to make, my daughter and I couldn’t finish this stack of 8 pancakes by ourselves.

So, we ended up storing these Easy Chocolate Oatmeal Pancakes in the fridge in an airtight container and enjoying them for breakfast over the next couple of days!

  1. […] like these simple oatmeal pancakes, these savory oatmeal pancakes and these chocolate oatmeal pancakes, these Oatmeal Green Smoothie Pancakes are super easy to make. Between your fridge and your pantry, […]

  2. No flowers blooming here yet…well, aside from our orchids inside! I have 4 little ones and they are all blooming and oh so pretty 🙂 This is one delicious stack o pancakes, my friend! Talk about over the top delish! Love that there’s actual coffee in the pancakes…bet it pairs beautiful with the cocoa! I can see myself sitting down on Saturday morning with a huge stack and lot and lots of coffee besides what’s in those pancakes 😉 Have a wonderful weekend! XOXO

  3. I totally know what you mean about colors popping out more vivid against rainy, grey skies. Laura has commented that everything appears greener after a rain. I bet it has something to do with the way light refracts in humid air? I might have to look into that! But first, pancakes. And what a genius idea to put coffee in your pancakes…with chocolate! I’m usually a coffee in the mug and pancake on the plate kinda guy…but I’ve got to go rethink this one now. That LifeExtension coffee sounds delicious! We’ve been searching for a new coffee lately, so I might have to give them a try! Also, I’m really jealous about your azaleas right now. I see about 18″ of snow out of my window…

  4. As a coffee lover and a chocolate lover these easy chocolate oatmeal pancakes paired together with that LifeExtension Coffee are perfect to me! Also, I’m glad you’re getting some signs of Spring there, but perhaps you could send it our way too? It’s still freezing here and STILL threatening more snow!

  7. My son has given up chocolate for lent too!!!
    He suggested I give up coffee but I laughed at that one 😉
    These chocolate pancakes sound fabulous! They will be perfect for Easter Sunday when he can eat chocolate again!

  8. You have turned pancakes on their ear with this one. So many great flavors — the chocolate and coffee are such a great pairing and oatmeal is hearty and ideal in this preparation. Ingenius.
