Light and fluffy mini pancakes studded with melting chocolate chips. These pancakes are vegan, gluten-free, healthy and refined sugar-free and come together in a blender in 5 minutes.

Pancake day is coming up later this month so I thought I’d get ahead of the game and start playing around with a few new pancake recipes this year. So, this is the first one!  These Chocolate Chunk Pancakes are the simplest recipe, but they work every time.

While there are so many options when it comes to pancake flavours, I went for a classic and indulgent chocolate chunk theme for these (first made with the rich cacao nib chocolate from Divine). What is so delicious is how the chocolate chunks melt into the pancake batter as they cook so each bite is oozing with melting rich chocolate. These are definitely not for the faint-hearted as chocolate is the main attraction!

These Chocolate Chunk Pancakes are naturally gluten-free as I use oats as a “flour” and just add the other ingredients to a blender to form the smooth batter. I use my favourite plant-based milk and lemon juice combination here which works to bind the batter and keep it fluffy and light. A little bit of baking powder also helps them to rise. Although they are quite small, these pancakes are best enjoyed stacked high with more melted chocolate on top.

I hope you will love these light, fluffy and simple pancakes that are naturally fibre-filled, healthy, gluten-free and vegan. They are easy to make, and you can serve them to friends and family for an impressive brunch or a pancake day dessert. They also keep well, so you can pop them in the fridge for a couple of days and heat back through to enjoy warm.
