Fudgy Chocolate Chip Pancakes


1 cup all-purpose flour

1/4 cup cocoa

2 tablespoons sugar

1 teaspoon baking powder

1/4 teaspoon baking soda

1/8 teaspoon salt

1 cup low-fat buttermilk

1 tablespoon vegetable oil

1 large egg, lightly beaten

1/3 cup semisweet chocolate chips

Cooking spray

9 tablespoons fat-free hot fudge topping

9 tablespoons frozen fat-free whipped topping, thawed

9 tablespoons fresh raspberries

Method of Preparation:

1. Combine flour, cocoa, and next 4 ingredients in a large bowl; stir with a whisk. Combine buttermilk, oil, and egg; add to flour mixture, stirring until well blended. Stir in chocolate chips.

2. Spoon 1/4 cup batter for each pancake onto a medium nonstick skillet coated with cooking spray (chocolate will burn if pan is too hot). Turn pancakes when tops are covered with bubbles and edges look cooked.
