Pancakes & Chocolate-Grape Syrup - "Life is either a daring adventure or nothing..." -Helen Keller
"Life is either a daring adventure or nothing..." -Helen Keller
Pancakes. A good, solid breakfast food. Why not top it off with a good fruit syrup? We were originally going for healthy, so we de-seeded and blended up a bunch of grapes, then boiled them down into a nice, thick syrup. The only problem was that the syrup was a little tart. Goodbye, healthy. Hello, chocolate!

I made the same pancakes I usually do, with:
1 cup white flour
1 Tablespoon sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 Tablespoon baking powder
1 cup ground oats (I just blend them in the food processor until they're somewhat powdery.)
2 eggs
milk until desired consistency

I mixed these together and cooked them on our always-exciting, flame-shooting gas stove.
Then I took the remaining grape syrup from a few days before and added just a few chocolate chips and about a tablespoon of honey. I stirred this on the stove top for just a minute until the chocolate melted. This was fantastic. Chocolate-covered fruit in syrup form. It's what's for breakfast.
