Chocolate-Covered Pancakes

You were supposed to get Apple Crumble Bars today.

They are soft, crumbly, and perfect for Fall. But the photos… notsomuch. I don’t know how something so delicious can look so ugly! I’m going to have to make more bars and try again. Hopefully the recipe will be up soon, so keep checking back.

Or, if it’s easier for you:

You can get CCK recipes as emails.

That way you don’t have to remember to keep checking the site for new recipes!

On the subject of recipes: I’ve been working on making my recipe pages easier to navigate. My goal is to one day have a photo of every single recipe on the site. (More about this later.) For today, since I always associate pancakes with Sundays, I tackled the pancake page first. Now, if you click on that page, you’ll see something like this:


Strawberry Shortcake Pancakes


Brownie Batter Pancakes


Banana Pancakes for One


Ice Cream Sandwich Pancakes


Blueberry Pie Pancakes


Red Velvet Pancakes


Snickerdoodle Cookie Pancakes


Cheesecake Pancakes


Cookie Dough Pancakes

Tomorrow I have a really fun recipe post planned… I hope you’ll like it!!

Question of the Day:

Do you like pancakes???

I love them, but it’s been a while since I posted a pancake recipe. Maybe it’s time to branch out and try a new flavor. Any flavor suggestions? The other day, someone asked if I had a pumpkin pancake recipe, and I had to say no. So perhaps I should try making pumpkin pancakes?

    I love a dense stack of pancakes, but I rarely take the time to make them in the mornings. What about coconut pancakes, or chocolate mint pancakes. Just some ideas for inspiration 🙂 P.S. waiting for friends to wake up to eat breakfast is so much harder when I’m looking at your posts!

  2. Elise says

    I just noticed this yesterday!!!!!! I was like O_O AMAZING!!!

    Mmmm pumpkin pancakes sound good 🙂 I love me some pumpkin. Coconut sounds good too. Maybe peanut butter?

  3. PBnJ Fam says

    Mmmmm… pumpkin pancakes… with perhaps a maple glaze or cream cheese frosting???? I second the coconut pancake idea above too! I have made homemade coconut syrup (like the kind I have had in hawaii)… but never coconut pancakes!! Mmmmm… pancakes…. Thank you Katie, you always make me smile and drool :0)

  4. Sweet and Savvy says

    I LOVE pancakes… but for some reason I never make them. Something about all the flipping just freaks me out.. haha. All your pancake recipes look absolutely wonderful!

    Can’t wait for your apple bars! 🙂

  5. Alyssa says

    I love pancakes, too! And pumpkin pancakes sound delish!
    What about a recipe for sweet potato pancakes?

    And this sight is better than a museum of fine art, lol!

  6. Michelle says

    Thanks for all pancake recipes …I made pancakes for my 4yo on a Sunday …he goobled them up. Now he made every Sunday pancake day…lol so now I have options! I made pumpkin pancakes and didn’t like it so much (he gobbled them up) but I do need to find a good one. Btw love love your site

  7. Emilia says

    I quite like pancakes, but I ahte making them! I recently found a recipe to make a fluffy pancake, you just put it in the oven! It’s most definitely my pancake style 😉
    I am very excited for the apple crumble bars, yum

  8. Barb says

    I love pumpkin pancakes! I also love whole wheat pancakes drizzled with honey, and blueberry or raspberry pancakes are my go-tos. I also add chia seeds to my pancakes whenever possible. Somehow, they seem to add to the fluffiness and I feel like I get an extra kick of nutrients!

    I love how your site is really evolving! Keep it up! Also, I can’t wait to try your pumpkin bars from the other day!

  9. Megan says

    All your pancake recipes look so good! I absolutely love pancakes; they are so versatile! Pumpkin pancakes are delicious- I definitely recommend trying them! You could have pumpkin chocolate chip pancakes or pumpkin chocolate swirl! I often make banana pancakes, peanut butter pancakes, strawberry/blueberry pancakes, and (when in season) peach pancakes. I saw a recipe the other day for coconut chocolate chip pancakes that I wanted to try! I have been meaning to try your cheesecake pancakes 🙂 Have a blessed Sunday!

    I used to really love pancakes, but haven’t been able to successfully make a decent gluten-free one. It’d probably help if my stomach could handle either xanthan or guar gum, but nope! So I’ll just have to keep experimenting.

  11. Jennifer says

    Pancakes are delicious–I don’t make them nearly enough! And pumpkin pancakes–delighful! Though, there are rumours (and I just spelled that as if I am British, which I am not) that there is a pumpkin (fresh and canned) shortage here in the northeast. I couldn’t find any canned pumpkin in my local grocery store and when I found it in another store, I was practically laying on the floor to get the six cans from the back of the shelf. I might have a problem. Admitting it might be the first step, but I’m not sure I want to go any further than that on the road to “recovery”!

  12. Rosie says

    I made pumpkin pancakes this morning! (In fact, I mutated your banana pancakes recipe to do it)
    Pumkin pancakes + your cheesecake frosting = love

  13. Sarah says

    Mmmmmmmmmmm….. PANCAKES….. DROOOOOOOOL. Rocky Road pancakes? so good. Pumpkin Cheesecake Pancake. simply evil. Oh wait, Chocolate Sundae Pancakes? positively insane. Oooooh, how about Dulce de Leche Pancakes with hot fudge sauce? i just died and arrived in heaven. Drooled some more. Woops.

    P.S.- Coconut cream? Caramel swirl? Coffee Delight? Pistachio? Peaches n’ cream? Butter Pecan?
    If you can make these into pancakes, i will pay you. BIGTIME. Err, do you accept I. Owe. You’s?

  14. Dawn @ Blonde on a Mission says

    I love your pancake recipes (have tried a few :D) and I think they’re so unique and delicious! I’d love to see another pancake recipe!

  15. Katie @Nutrition In A Peanut Shell says

    I actually don’t like pancakes..I find them stuffy and just, no matter how many things you throw in it…it’s not all that tasty. Just my own personal experience though

  16. River says

    I looove pancakes. I have been trying out a few from various sites lately, but still haven’t found one I would make again. You should definitely post more!

  17. Anna @ Food Fitness and Frolicking says

    I LOVE PANCAKES. I know what you mean though about your photos not turning out well, sometimes I envision this beautiful dish and it ends up looking sloppy. I’m sure your crumble bars were beautiful anyways, but I understand!

  18. Pure2raw twins says

    we are have been working on our recipe page too, just other things keep getting the way!! haha

    now I would like one of each of these pancakes please, YUM!
