Traditional pancakes with blackberry yogurt sauce

We woke up quite bored of our usual breakfasts this morning, so I decided to make Jacob and I some pancakes! And no, not “healthy” pancakes… There’s butter and flour! We eat healthy practically every day.. why not have a cheat day! I only slightly changed the recipe for the pancakes themselves. The complete original recipe is here.

This recipe is great for any children over the age of ONE YEAR. Do not feed honey to kids under the age of 1 YEAR. if you are planning on this recipe for baby led weaning use maple syrup in place of the honey.


Ingredients: (Makes 8 small pancakes + 2 big ones for mama)

For the pancakes:

  • 3/4c all purpose flour
  • 1 3/4 TSP baking powder
  • 1/4 TSP salt
  • 1 1/2 TSP sugar
  • 1/4c dark chocolate chips
  • 1/2c + 2 TBSP unsweetened vanilla almond milk
  • 1 egg
  • 1 TBSP butter, melted

For the sauce:

  • 2 TBSP full fat PLAIN greek yogurt
  • 10 blackberries, washed
  • 1 TBSP honey


  1. In a medium mixing bowl, sift together your flour, baking powder, salt, sugar and chocolate chips.
  2. In a second bowl, mix together your almond milk, egg and butter. (This is such a small amount of liquid ingredients that I mixed my wet ingredients in a 1cup measuring cup and skipped dirtying another bowl.)
  3. Add ingredients together, mix.
  4. Heat a medium skillet over medium heat. Add some EVOO, get it nice and toasty. Using a tablespoon, spoon your batter into the pan to form your tiny pancakes. Flip after a couple minutes (once they are nicely browned on one side,) let them brown on the other side and repeat with remaining batter. You can do all tiny pancakes, or do the 8 tiny pancakes and 2 bigger pancakes for mama or dad. Who ever is making the breakfast!
  5. In a little bowl, add together your blackberries, yogurt and honey. Use a spoon or fork to mash the blackberries and mix everything together.
  6. Spoon the sauce on top of your pancakes and enjoy!
