Ingredients

Instructions

  • You can watch the video in the post for visual instructions.
    I recommend measuring the ingredients in grams on a kitchen scale.
  • To make the flax egg, simply combine 1 tablespoon ground flax seeds with 2 1/2 tablespoons water in a small bowl. Set aside and let thicken for 5 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, add all dry ingredients (oat flour, coconut flour, baking powder, salt) to a medium-sized bowl. Stir with a whisk to combine.
  • Add the wet ingredients (flax egg, maple syrup, plant-based milk) and stir until just combined (do not over mix). If the batter is too thick add a little more milk.
  • Also, add the dairy-free chocolate chips and stir with a spatula or spoon.
  • Heat a little oil in a skillet. Spoon some batter (I used one heaping ice cream scoop per pancake) into the skillet and cook the pancakes on low to medium heat from both sides until golden brown.
  • Serve with maple syrup, fruits of choice, a chocolate sauce, caramel sauce, or whatever you prefer. Enjoy! Check the recipe notes below.

Notes

  • Flax egg: You can also use a chia egg (1 tbsp ground chia seeds mixed with 2 1/2 tbsp water). Half of a banana (mashed) is fine too.
  • Coconut flour: It adds a great texture to the pancakes, makes them thicker, a little fluffier, and also easier to flip. Please do not skip or substitute it!
  • Plant-based milk: I often use canned lite coconut milk because it's higher in fat. If you use boxed milk (which is often watered down and low-fat), I would recommend adding 1/2 tablespoon of oil.
  • Maple syrup: Any liquid sweetener can be used.
  • Chocolate chips: I used mini vegan chocolate chips but you can also use a bar of dark chocolate and chop it into small chunks with a knife.
  • Nutrition facts are for one of six pancakes.
