Vegan Chocolate Pancakes

Chocolate Pancakes never fail, but when they’re vegan then you know you’re on to a good thing.

This is a healthy version of pancakes with less fat than other recipes, but it tastes amazing, you’re gonna love it. I eat these pancakes with sliced banana and maple syrup, which is my favorite topping at the moment! By the way, originally this recipe goes with raspberries but I exchanged it with strawberries instead since I couldn’t find any raspberries. But I don’t think it is in any way worse.

Anyway, here’s the recipe for pancakes. It is from a new Niomi Smart cookbook “Eat Smart”. You can do all of it, or use elements of it, it’s totally up to you. Give it a try!

Vegan Chocolate Pancakes

Pancakes:

1 1/2 cups flour

1 1/2 cups almond milk (or any milk of your choice)

1 ripe banana

1 tbsp maple syrup

1-2 tbsp raw cacao powder

1 heaped tbsp chia seeds

1/2 tsp baking soda

Sauce:

1 cup of blueberries/raspberries or strawberries (or a mixture!)

1/4 cup water

1 tbsp lemon juice

1 tbsp maple syrup

optional 1 tsp flour to thicken

A handful of whole berries to top at the end.

 

  1. Simply put all of the pancake ingredients into a blender and blend for a few seconds until a smooth batter forms.
  2. In a saucepan add the strawberries, water, lemon juice and maple syrup and turn it onto a medium-high heat.
  3. When your frying pan is hot, pour the mixture into the middle of the pan until you reach your desired pancake size. Leave for a minute or 2 on each side.
  4. Stack up the pancakes and drizzle with the delicious blueberry sauce!
