Chocolate Chip Pancakes

Normally I start my day with either a big smoothie, a smoothie bowl or oatmeal. When I have more time in the morning’s I’ll make myself some pancakes. 

I always struggled with making pancakes. It wasn’t until I tried the Minimalist Baker mini sopapilla pancakes that I found success. These ones are so good by the way so give them a try!

I went to my friend Kayla’s for a fully vegan brunch a few weeks ago and she cooked a variety of delicious breakfast foods, which included some fluffy pancakes. I decided I had to try to make them myself, but this time I used some vanilla extract and cinnamon. I now have my new favourite recipe, so thank you to Kayla for being a genius!

What you’ll need: 

  • 1.5 tbsp baking powder
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 tbsp coconut sugar
  • 1/8 tsp sea salt
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1.5 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 cup almond milk
  • Vegan chocolate chips

Directions:

  1. Mix together the oil, vanilla extract and almond milk.
  2. Blend dry ingredients in a blender until thoroughly combined.
  3. Add the liquid mixture to the blender and blend until the mixture is smooth with no lumps.
  4. Take the blade out of your blender, and add the chocolate chips. Using a spoon, fold them into the batter.
  5. Heat a medium sized pan on medium-high heat.
  6. Pour 1/4 cup of the batter onto the pan. When bubbles appear all over the pancake, flip and leave for another 2-3 minutes.
  7. Continue to do this until all of the batter is gone. Enjoy!
