Your pancakes are so much prettier than mine... what's the secret? ;)

Wow! These look so yummy and so nutritious! I never would have thought to use black beans in my pancakes.

Thanks Kelsey!!! I have to admit, my pancakes did not turn out quite as well as yours. They wouldn't set!!! I took pictures, but they ended up in the garbage. I was very sad. The batter was very delicious though - I may or may not have eaten half of it! :)

Breaking out of food ruts is definitely fun. I still eat oats for breakfast every morning, but I remember how nice it was when I finally broke out of the rut that had me sticking to the same add-ins. Variety is the spice of life, after all :)

And it's so sweet of you to dedicate your post to Chelsea.

Those look like 'perfect' pancakes! Smooth, round, and fluffy. I likethe addition of blackbrans. Ive never heard of that before.

I had no idea that black beans could be made into pancakes. And these looks SO perfect Kelsey! I am so impressed with your culinary talents.

Trust me when I say you don't want to see what my pancakes look like. They taste good, they just don't look as pretty as yours!

Megan D said... [reply]

Ohh wow. Saving this recipe for sure. Could I use more cocoa powder in place of the carob do you think?!

Black beans in pancakes??!?! You are too cool.

lola-runs said... [reply]

beans in pancakes? weird, ive never tried them but i red a recipe in happy herbivore once :P

Joanne said... [reply]

Those sound dreamy! I can't believe they have black beans in them...you'd never know it!

Lindsay Cotter said... [reply]

You made brownie pancakes and I made raw blondie/brownies. I think we had the same cravings this week, haha! Those look so good and what a great idea!

Jess - Healthy Exposures said... [reply]

Black bean brownie batter pancakes?! Oh my gosh, these are so creative and amazing!! I think you're having too much fun breaking out of your food rut :P Send some over here!

thevegster said... [reply]

I love pecans with pancakes! Such a good combo. Reminds me of my cracker barrel days - I'd get pecan pancakes and pretty much just eat the pancake parts with the pecans in it. I need to grab some more pecans since I polished mine off the last time I made pancakes

Mitri said... [reply]

Wow, those sound delicious and would be so easy to make! I am definitely going to try them.

Thanks for your comment; it was really kind. :)

Lauren said... [reply]

These look like the best ones yet!! I've tried black beans in brownies, so now I'm interested to see how good they'd be in pancakes. And your pancakes look perfect -- like you've been doing this for years :)

Kris said... [reply]

These have to be the nicest looking pancakes I have ever seen! So smooth and even! You are good :)

Black beans huh? This sounds odd, but I guess can be good!

xxoo

runeatrepeat3 said... [reply]

These remind me of black bean brownies. They look great!

justjac said... [reply]

Those pancakes look so yum, I love the addition of the nuts on top!

thehungryscholar said... [reply]

I didn't even know pancakes like this existed. This looks so good!

Good call on the nuts. I always put them in my brownies.
