Makes: 6 small pancakes
- 2 tbsp. Organic Chia Seeds + 6 tbsp. water (this makes 2 chia eggs)
- 100g Instant Oats
- 35g Vegan Blend
- 1 tsp. baking powder
- 1 tbsp. cacao powder
- 200ml non-dairy milk
- 6-8 drops Chocolate Flavdrops
- 1 tsp. Coconut Oil for frying
1. First, make the chia egg by mixing the chia seeds and water in a cup and allowing to stand for 10 minutes (the chia seeds soak up the moisture of the water and become jelly-like, similar to the texture of an egg).
2. Next, add remaining pancake ingredients to a blender and process until smooth. Add the chia egg and pulse to combine.
3. Add coconut oil to a pan over medium heat. Pour out the batter (around 2-3 tbsp. at a time). Fry until the edges begin to turn golden, then carefully flip and fry for a further minute or so on the other side. Repeat for remaining batter.
