Wake up to dreamy mornings with chocolate overload pancakes

Hi, I'm Gina. I like food. A lot. That's what you'll find on Running to the Kitchen with the occasional smattering of fitness, sarcasm & weimaraners. 

Chocolate pancakes with chocolate yogurt sauce make for the best sweet breakfast

There's absolutely no reason you can't have chocolate for breakfast and these pancakes prove it. Forget the chocolate chips, these pancakes are chocolaty inside and out.

These flapjacks are filled with cocoa powder making them downright indulgent before the sauce even gets poured on top. The chocolate yogurt sauce is the perfect way to top off this indulgent treat and mouths will be watering as it drips down the sides of each stack. It's a great weekend treat the kids (and you) will love.
