Chocolate Cherry Pancakes

This is the same basic recipe as the Zucchini Pancakes, with chocolate chips and cherries in lieu of the zucchini. They are so sweet on their own, they require no syrup! Of course, if you are craving a crazy sugar high, go for it!

Chocolate Cherry Pancakes

1/2 cup flour (I used all purpose)
1 1/2 tsp sugar
1 tbsp baking powder
1/4 tsp cinnamon
3/4 cup unsweetened chocolate almond milk
1/3 cup cheries, chopped
1/4 cup chocolate chips
1 tbsp cooking oil or magarine

Mix dry ingredients together in a bowl. Chop cherries into small chunks. Mix the cherries into the dry ingredients and coat evenly, then add almond milk and stir well. Heat oil or margine over medium-low heat in skillet. Spoon 1/8-1/4 cup of batter into pan. Let sit for a minute and the sprinkle a few chocolate chips into pancake. You could add them right into the batter, but I find that they sink to the bottom of the pancake and then you have a big chocolately mess on one side. Cook over low heat (3) until the pancakes bubble, flip and cook the other side until golden brown. Serve alone or with syrup if you dare!
