I look forward to Saturday’s as I always make pancakes! I came up with these last week and eyeballed everything so I didn’t have a recipe, so by request I made them again and wrote down the ingredients! Here is the recipe↓↓

Serves 2 (appx. 10 pancakes)

▶Ingredients:
•1C Oat flour
•1/2C Spelt flour *(see notes below for options)
•1tsp baking powder
•1-2Tbsp xylitol or raw sugar of choice
•1Tbsp cinnamon
•1-1/2 scoops of chocolate protein powder
•2Tbsp cocao powder
•1tsp vanilla
•1 egg
•1/2C applesauce
•1-1/2C unsweetened almond milk (or milk of choice)
•1/2C cold brewed coffee (can use more a.milk instead if don’t have coffee)
•1/2Tbsp chia seeds
•2Tbsp vegan chocolate chips (optional)

*You can use all oat flour or all spelt flour if desired or switch measurements around, also whole wheat flour will work.

▶Directions:
Mix all dry ingredients together until well combined, add all wet ingredients and mix until well combined then add chia seeds and chocolate chips.
image

Preheat pan and spray with cooking spray or oil of choice. Spoon appx. 1/4C of mixture into pan and cook for 2-3 minutes per side.

Now for the chocolate topping! Easy peasy.

▶Chocolate Sauce:
•1Tbsp dark chocolate peanut butter melted (or any nut butter of choice)
•1Tbsp cocao powder
•3-4Tbsp unsweetened almond milk (or milk of choice)
•1tsp raw honey

▶Melt peanut butter, add all other ingredients and whisk with fork until well combined, be patient it will mix. Depending on how thick you like your sauce you can add more or less milk, I used 4Tbsp as I like mine more liquidy. Drizzle over stacked pancakes and top with 1 square of Lindt 85% dark cocao bar chopped.

Enjoy ♡
