Chocolate Whole Wheat Yogurt Pancakes with Caramel Syrup

A decadant twist on my famous Whole Wheat Yogurt Pancakes

Dry Ingredients (mix in large bowl)
1 cup whole white wheat flour (120 grams)
1.5 cups all-purpose white flour (180 grams)
2 tablespoons sugar (only need 1 T if using sweetened yogurt)
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
½ tablespoon salt
2-4 tablespoons cocoa powder (depending on preference)

Wet Ingredients (add to quart measuring glass)
1 cup milk minus 2T plus 2T vinegar
1 cup plain or vanilla yogurt (Greek or regular, whole fat works best)
1/2 cup canola oil
2 large eggs
1/4 cup water or milk* (or more if needed to thin batter at the end)

In a quart measuring glass add 2 T white vinegar, add milk up to 1 cup total volume, add yogurt up to 2 cups total volume, add oil up to 2.5 cups total volume, then add ¼ cup water and 2 eggs. Combine with a fork or whisk and let sit. Meanwhile, mix dry ingredients in large bowl. Make a well in the center. Pour wet ingredients into the well. Stir with a fork until just combined. *Depending on the consistency of the yogurt you are using, you may need to add some additional water or milk if the batter is too dry or thick. Use a spring handled scoop to measure out batter onto griddle.  Makes 12-18 pancakes.

Easy Caramel Syrup
1 cup heavy cream
1 cup light brown sugar
1 cup corn syrup

Bring to simmer over medium heat while stirring in large sauce pan. Turn to low and let simmer for 5 minutes. Watch carefully to prevent boiling over or burning. Stir occasionally.
