Almond Dark Chocolate Chip Pancakes with Chocolate Almond Syrup

WARNING: This recipe is for major chocolate lovers! 🙂 It is rich and delicious and tastes like dessert! 🙂

I found the base ingredients for this recipe (the amount of flour & eggs) over at Wellness Mama and then used my creativity from there. The funny thing is that when I woke up this morning I actually told my hubby, “I think all my creative juices have dried up.” 🙂 I guess not. 🙂

I have been on a “pure almond extract” kick lately….I LOVE the taste that it adds to baked goods. In fact, I am not sure there is a more yummier taste! 🙂 So, that was my inspiration for these pancakes this morning.

(It truly is rich, so if you are not a serious chocolate lover, you may want to go with butter and pure maple syrup for your topping instead of the syrup I made.)

The finished product when it was cut into…..yummy!
