In honour of Pancake Day, I’m sharing my new favourite recipe for a stack of extra thick, chocolatey pancakes. For those of you with a sweet tooth, these make the perfect breakfast option with the fluffiest texture, studded with chocolate chips and finished with a generous drizzle of maple syrup. As well as being naturally gluten-free, dairy-free and refined sugar-free (like all my recipes), they’re also loaded with fibre and pack a punch of protein (no protein powder necessary!)

Chocolate Hazelnut Pancakes, Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free, Pancake Day Recipe

Makes 4 thick pancakes

INGREDIENTS

  • 50g Chocolate Hazelnut Butter (I used Meridian Foods)
  • ½ tsp vanilla extract
  • 50g buckwheat flour
  • 100ml almond milk
  • 20g cacao powder
  • 4 tbsp maple syrup
  • 25g ground almonds
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 2 eggs
  • 40g dark chocolate chips
  • 2 tbsp coconut oil for frying
  • 1 banana, sliced

METHOD

  • In a large bowl, whisk the eggs. Stir in the milk, vanilla and maple syrup, then add the chocolate hazelnut butter and whisk until smooth.
  • In a separate bowl, mix together the the buckwheat, cacao, ground almonds and baking powder, then gradually fold in the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and mix until fully combined.
  • Melt the coconut oil in a frying pan over a medium-high heat.
  • Add 3 tablespoons of the batter to the pan, then scatter over a handful of chocolate chips. When you can see bubbles around the side of the pancake (about 2 minutes), it’s ready to flip. Cook for 1-2 minutes on the other side. Repeat with the rest of the batter.
  • Assemble the pancakes in a stack with banana slices between each layer.Sprinkle a few more chocolate chips and an extra dash of maple syrup.
