These cacao pancakes have been on my favorite breakfast meals over the last month. They are SO easy to make - just 5 ingredients. I love topping them with fresh strawberries, maple syrup, and a small sprinkle of powdered sugar. They are also super great with dark chocolate chips thrown in the batter - my favorite way! Chocolate for breakfast? Can't beat that!
5-Ingredient Whole Wheat Cacao Pancakes | Vegan
(makes 5-6 small pancakes)
3/4 cup whole wheat flour
1/4 cup cacao powder
1 tsp baking powder
2 Tablespoons organic cane sugar
1 cup non dairy milk
optional topping ideas: powdered sugar, maple syrup, strawberries, walnuts, dairy-free chocolate chips
1. In a large bowl add all of the ingredients and stir just until you no longer see any flour. (Note: if you stir the batter too much it will become very thin and runny and will result in more flat pancakes. I stir mine very little so the batter is thicker which will result in puffier pancakes.)
2. Heat a large skillet or griddle over medium heat. Pour the batter onto a the pan using a 1/3 cup measuring cup. Let it cook until the bubbles come through and the sides get dry. Check the bottoms every so often so they don't burn. Flip and cook for about 1 more minute.
3. Transfer to a plate and top with your favorite toppings!
