Are you looking for a vegan pancake recipe that makes your pancakes fluffier than ever? Look no more, here's the perfect recipe for you. It's fluffy, chocolate-y and tastes heavenly.
I've been experimenting a lot with new pancake and crepe recipes in the past four years. But for some reason, I've never written down any recipes. Instead I used to measure everything intuitively. Most of the time, the result was amazing but sometimes I knew that something went wrong. So I thought, you know what? I'm gonna write down the exact measurements in order to be able to replicate my successful recipes and, of course, to share them with you guys. You better be excited for this recipe!
I also thought that I'm gonna write the recipe right at the beginning of this page so that you don't have to scroll down for like an hour. I'm changing up the recipe world a little bit and if you're still keen to read my entire post, you can :)
The Fluffiest Choco Pancakes
These pancakes are perfect for Pancake Sundays and any other day that needs pancakes to be great (Monday-Saturday). They are great as a dessert or breakfast or both in one day.
Course: Breakfast / Dessert
Servings: 6-8 medium pancakes
Does it keep? 1 day
Prep Time: 30-40 min (without fridge time which is 15-30 minutes or overnight)
1 Cup Spelt or All-Purpose White Flour
2 tsp Baking Powder
2 Tbsp Cocoa Powder
1 Tbsp Flax Seeds 1 Tbsp Chia Seeds
1 Cup Oat Milk
2 Tbsp Peanut Butter
1 tsp Sunflower Oil
5 Tbsp Maple Syrup
1 tsp Apple Cider Vinegar
Pinch of Salt
Frozen Raspberries or Jam
1. Sift the dry ingredients in a bowl. It's important to sift them since otherwise you're likely to get clumps in your batter.
2. Mix in the wet ingredients, and at the very end add the apple cider vinegar. Mix the batter but don't overmix!
3. Put the bowl with the batter in the fridge for 15-30 minutes or overnight.
4. Heat up a pancake pan and once it's hot, pour some batter on one spot and let it spread out naturally. Lower the heat and wait until bubbles form. Once you see bubbles forming, flip it. Depending on your hob, you need to minimise the heat completely. Just see how your first pancake turns out and whether it's slightly burnt or not on the other side. It approximatelly takes 2-3 minutes on the first side and 1-2 minutes on the other side.
5. Once they are all done, serve the pancakes with yogurt, peanut butter, maple syrup, coconut chips and chopped pistachios.
I hope you all enjoy making these pancakes. I really do and I'm glad I came up with this recipe. I feel like I've never had as fluffy pancakes as these. This recipe is also really easy for new vegans. You should have all these ingredients at home and if you don't have cocoa powder, then simply don't put it in, it won't change the texture, just the taste and colour. And chia and flax seeds sound very fancy but honestly, I recommend you to always have chia and flax seeds by hand. Eat 1 tsp of each each day for the perfect Omega fats balance. I usually put mine in my breakfast, whether it's a porridge, baked oatmeal, pancakes, smoothies or yogurt. You can sprinkle them on salads and any meal really.
And this is what my pancake stack looks like with creamy peanut butter on top. It just tastes so delicious, I feel grateful whenever I get to eat these bad bois!
On another note, I am beyond excited to take part in #futuristicfebruary this year (starting today, on the 1st February). This is a challenge hosted by @sustainable_duo on Instagram. Basically, you collect all your waste (except food waste) for the entire month of February and on the 28th you post a photograph on Instagram in order to show everyone how much you waste within a month. This is obviously not to show how good you are with your waste and how bad other people are or the other way around but rather to realise that we can all do something to waste less and be more conscious of our responsibilities as consumers and as earth dwellers. During this month, don't try to change anything but just live as you usually do. That way you will see how much you really waste and then after February you can look into ways of wasting less.
Are you gonna take part in this?
Much love, Viki xxx
