Chocolate Peppermint Pancakes

It’s that wonderful time of the year when peppermint and chocolate seem to be trending flavors… and I LOVE IT! Such a great combo and so festive during the holidays. Miss E and I love making pancakes together and it’s always fun mix things up for the different seasons. Last month, I shared our Gluten-Free Pumpkin Pancakes and today I’m sharing our new Gluten-Free Chocolate Peppermint Pancakes.

These pancakes are thick, fluffy and the extra chocolate chips make them melt in your mouth!


The ingredients are very simple, most of you probably have everything on hand during the holidays. They include Gluten-Free All-Purpose Flour (Or regular flour would work too), Baking Powder, Cocoa Powder, Powdered Sugar, Vanilla, Oil, Milk, 1 Egg, Candy Canes and Chocolate Chips.

Cream ingredients together and then slowly add in the crush candy canes and the chocolate chips.

Heat a pancake griddle on medium-high heat (I put my burner on a 7). Before pouring the batter onto the pan I sprayed a little Pompeian Grapeseed Oil onto the griddle. Due to my soy allergy I have a hard time finding cooking sprays that are soy-free and this spray is all-natural and safe for me to eat! It’s made from 100% grapeseed oil imported from France. I used it for my pancakes but Pompeian Grapeseed Oil Spray can be used for stir-frying, grilling, sautéing or baking.

To make the perfect pancakes, I let my batter stay on the pan just until I start to see little bubbles and then I flip for about 1 minute longer.

These pancakes are very rich and decadent so I just added a little whip cream for a garnish. I don’t even think you need syrup with these! But I’ll leave that up to you :)
