These vegan cacao pancakes are delicious, super easy to make, requiring only a few basic ingredients!
  • - 1 cup whole wheat flour or flour of choice
  • - 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • - ¼ teaspoon salt
  • - 1 tablespoon raw cocoa powder
  • - 1 cup soy milk or milk of choice
  • - 2 tablespoons melted coconut oil or olive oil
  • - 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • - 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • More oil to grease your small frying pan
  1. In a mixing bowl, whisk together all the ingredients the flour, baking powder, salt, cacao powder, milk, coconut oil, maple syrup and cinnamon. Stir well until combined. Let the batter rest for a few minutes - max. 5 - so your pancakes will be all nice and fluffy.
  2. Heat your oil of choice (I used olive oil) in a small frying pan over medium heat. As I have a non-stick pan, I only have to use a tiny amount of oil. When the oil has heated up, pour about ¼-cup measure of the batter into the centre of the pan and spread it out evenly. Cook for 2 to 3 minutes until small bubbles form on the surface of the pancakes (you’ll know it’s ready when it looks matte instead of glossy), and flip. Cook on the opposite side for 1 to 2 minutes.
  3. Repeat the process with the remaining batter. Serve the pancakes with your favourite toppings immediately or keep them in the fridge for the next day. Enjoy!
