Chocolate French Silk Pancakes with Chocolate Syrup

Oh yes.  These were as good as they look.  Chocolate for dinner.  I'm such a great mom!

Not only did we use syrup with these, but slathered them with a homemade chocolate syrup as well.  The recipe makes a lot so unless you're looking to use it other places, you may want to cut back on it. On second thought, the syrup is awesome. Make it all and pour some on your ice cream for dessert.  :-)

1 cup flour
1 cup whole wheat flour
1/4 cup powdered sugar
1/4 cup cocoa powder
1 tbsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. salt
2 eggs, well beaten
1 can lite coconut milk
2 tsp. vanilla extract
Extra milk to smooth out batter if needed (I used about 1/3 cup)

Stir together flour, cocoa powder, sugar, salt and baking powder.  Add eggs, milk and vanilla.  Stir until dry ingredients are combined and batter is smooth.  Preheat pan on medium heat.  Drop batter on pan and cook until bubbles form. Flip and cook until lightly browned.

1 cup water
1 1/2 tbsp. butter
