Chocolate "Chip" Pancakes


So I was wondering what to eat tonight and I decided that I was going to try pancakes. So I took:

1/4 cup each oat flour and buckwheat flour
1/8 teaspoon salt (I only put that in because I need sodium, so it's optional)
1 teaspoon powdered maca (optional, but it enhances the chocolate taste)
Stevia to taste (I use a powder and used about 1/8 teaspoon)
1/4 cup (heaping) cacao nibs

and put it all in a small bowl. I stirred them around with a dry spoon. Then I took:

1/4 cup (heaping) walnuts
1 cup almond "milk"

and put them in a smoothy machine and whirred them together. The nuts were still a bit chunky. Then I blended the liquid ingredients into the dry ingredients.

I used my electric grill to cook them. I sprayed olive oil on the grill, dropped the batter (two heaping tablespoons per pancake) onto the grill. (My grill fit two pancakes.) They cook in about 10-15 minutes -- I haven't had any burn and they didn't stick to the grill.

If you like, you can put syrup of a sort (maple, agave, etc.) on the pancakes; I ate them as is and they were delicious.
