Double. Chocolate. Pancakes.

Need I say more?

These are so ridiculously easy to make, and made with only a few simple and wholesome ingredients that you already (most likely) have in your pantry. This is one of the first recipes that I started making when I first went vegan years ago, and it’s still one of my favorite things to make for breakfast. Since then, I’ve learned to make them with buckwheat flour, rice flour, spelt flour - you name it. But oat pancakes have always been the easiest, and they’re just too dang good not to make. This time, I made them double chocolate because why not? I threw in some cacao powder and chopped up some Alter Eco dark chocolate for extra goodness - and not only that, but I took some liberties and melted some of that dark chocolate to pour on top.

Wild, I know.

Double Chocolate Oat Pancakes

INGREDIENTS:

1/2 ripe banana

1 cup oats

3/4 cup water or plant milk

2 Tbsp cacao powder

1 Tbsp flax seed or chia seed

1 tsp baking powder

1 tsp apple cider vinegar

2-3 Tbsp chopped Alter Eco dark chocolate

INSTRUCTIONS:

Blend all of the ingredients in a food processor or blender and set aside. Allow your pan to heat up for about 2 minutes, on medium-high heat. Lightly grease with your oil of choice if needed - then just started cooking up your pancakes! I usually take a ladle or large spoon to scoop how much I want, and you’ll know your pancakes are ready to flip once bubbles have formed on top and the edges are lightly cooked.

The star of the show - what makes these pancakes  so dang good.  And chocolatey.
