Dairy free chocolate pancakes

‘If I make some chocolate pancakes with a peanut butter sauce,’ I asked Belle, ‘will you eat them?’

‘Will I eat some chocolate pancakes,’ she said, looking like she might have misunderstood the question, ‘if you make them for me right now?’

‘Yes,’ I said.

‘Well yes,’ she said, ‘obviously.’

And so I did.

I pretty much only drink oat milk nowadays as it’s nicer in coffee and kinder on my stomach, and oat milk works really well in recipes too. Yeah yeah, I know you all know this, but did you also know that Modern Milkman can deliver oat milk to your door in the proper glass bottles? I didn’t. They also do kefir in glass bottles for the true millennials amongst you. Or strawberry milkshake for the 45 year old toddlers like me. All this as part of your regular dairy delivery. How very modern.

How to make dairy free chocolate pancakes

Modern Milkman has some plant-based milk recipes over on their website, or you can hang out here with me and the pancakes. For my dairy free pancakes you’ll need:

  • 100g plain flour
  • 20g cocoa powder
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 2 tbsp caster sugar
  • a pinch of salt
  • 2 tbsp any dairy free spread, melted
  • 250ml of oat milk
  • 1 egg

If you wanted to make them vegan chocolate pancakes you could easily switch the egg out for half a mashed banana.

To make the pancake batter, just mix the dry ingredients in one bowl and the wet ingredients in another, and gradually add the wet to the dry, whisking until smooth. Heat a pan with a rub of oil or a few squirts of cooking spray, and pour in a little mixture. (I made my pancakes roughly 12cm across and had enough mixture to make nine.)

When the pancake is just starting to set on top, flip it over for about another 10-15 seconds, and then transfer it to a plate. Repeat until you have a pancake stack.

I topped my dairy free chocolate pancakes with raspberries and a peanut butter sauce. I made the sauce by heating about a tablespoon of peanut butter gently in a pan, stirring in a little cocoa powder and adding oat milk until I had a thick pouring consistency.

Pour the sauce over the pancakes and you’re ready to serve.

You’re welcome.
