Double chocolate chip pancakes title

I was undecided whether or not to post a pancake recipe for Shrove Tuesday (tomorrow but I’m sure you knew that!) I was sure that every other food and healthy living blogger would be doing so as well. Who needs another healthy pancake recipe? Well I ended up making these for breakfast yesterday morning and instantly decided that putting another healthy pancake recipe out into the world was not a bad thing at all…

…nope, definitely nothing wrong with another pancake recipe, especially when they are gluten free and involve chocolate, chocolate chips and raw almond cream! I mean look at those babies, I think I could have called them Oreo pancakes with those layers!

In fact these pancakes taste decidedly cakey thanks to being thick and spongy. They really are like cake for breakfast, but one which does not leave you on a sugar rush for the rest of the morning. The recipe is pretty simple too, and you certainly don’t have to create almond cream to enjoy these, greek yoghurt would be a more than worthy substitute.

Double Chocolate Chip Pancakes
Serves 1
Print
Ingredients
  1. 2 tbsp coconut flour
  2. 2 tbsp cocoa powder
  3. 1 tbsp granulated sweetener (coconut sugar, truvia etc)
  4. 1/4 tsp baking powder
  5. 2 eggs
  6. 1/4 cup milk (I used homemade almond milk)
  7. 2 tbsp chocolate chips
Optional
  1. Raw almond cream (the almond pulp leftover from making raw almond milk)
  2. OR
  3. Greek yoghurt
  4. Chocolate sauce - 2 tsp liquid sweetener such as honey or maple syrup, 1 tbsp cocoa powder
Instructions
  1. Combine all the dry ingredients then mix in the eggs and milk. The batter will be thick.
  2. Heat a little coconut oil in a frying pan over a medium high heat.
  3. Spoon in the batter and spread out into a little pancake. Sprinkle a few chocolate chips on top.
  4. Cook until the underside is firm enough, then flip and cook the other side. Continue with the rest of the batter.
  5. Stack the pancakes with a layer of the almond cream or yoghurt between them.
  6. To make the chocolate sauce, combine liquid sweetener with the cocoa powder and a little water until it becomes a sauce. Drizzle on top.
Notes
  1. This recipe serves 1 generously, or 2 more modestly.

These pancakes are certainly worthy of being made more often than once a year!

    These look lovely! As you know, I do love pancakes for a weekend breakfast. I think we will have pancakes tomorrow but it depends what time I get home as I am out all day.

    I do prefer thicker pancakes to the crepe-like ones Britain has…but I find they get a bit samey for me. But Ben loves them – he just adores anything sweet for breakfast, bless him. Lots of syrup and cream as well – I can’t think of a worse way to set my day up! To be fair to him though, it’s only on holiday he does that!

      I don’t think I could handle loads of syrup and cream either, well maybe not every day ;-)

    You can never have too many pancake recipes. I added this recipe in my pancake round up – chocolate pancakes are always needed!

    Woah those look incredible Laura! I LOVE pancakes and since discovering buckwheat ones that are gluten and dairy free, there is no stopping me! Happy pancake day for tomorrow! :)

      Thanks Louise! If you like buckwheat pancakes you’ll have to look out for the recipe in Grains as Mains, they are delish!
