Just like with WIAW, pancake Sunday is also another big blogging tradition. I'm fine with that!
So, I went about making some pancakes, in the mood for chocolate and berries- you can't beat that combo- it's good in waffles too! But I needed different flavours and textures, (really I needed ice-cream) so there are a few little surprises thrown in to make things interesting...
Chocolate pancakes with berry ice-cream:
10g wholemeal spelt flour
10g coconut flour
10g rolled oats
15g oat bran
3g raw cocoa (about 1/2 tablespoon- it's strong, you don't need much!)
Chia gel- 1 tablespoon chia seeds mixed with 1 tablespoon oat milk, sit for 5 mins
Milk to reach desired consistency (about 3/4 cup- keep adding if too thick) I used oat-milk
Optional- wholegrain cheerios... you'll see
1 frozen banana
2 handfuls of mixed berries
1. Combine dry ingredients in a bowl. Whisk in chia gel and slowly keep adding milk until pancake consistency: (like pouring cream)
3. Spoon dollops of batter onto pan (you should get about 4 medium sized pancakes)
6.Turn off heat and place pancakes on paper towel, cover with paper towel to retain heat
7. Make ice-cream: Place frozen banana and berries in food processor and process until you get sorbet consistency (you may have to scrape the sides a few times)
8. Place pancakes on plate and top with whatever you like- as you can see, I went with peanut butter, yum :)
Enjoy your pancake Sunday and remember even if you forgot your brekky pancake, there's still lunch and dinner available- that is totally justified!
Have a great day!
