Orange Pancakes with Dark Chocolate Chips

I know...yet another pancake recipe. But I ask you, can you really ever have too many awesome pancake recipes? Exactly.

These pancakes are super fluffy pillow pancakes, with zingy orange zest complemented with deliciously dark chocolate. Pssssst...they're also gluten free!

Makes 6 small pancakes

1C gluten free self-raising flour (I use Dove's Farm)
3/4-1C almond milk
1Tbsp ground flax seeds
1Tbsp vanilla sugar
1Tbsp vegetable oil
1 orange - zest & juice
6tsp dark chocolate chips

In a small mixing bowl combine the flour, flax and sugar. Add the wet ingredients and mix until smooth and thick (you should have to spread the batter a little when you spoon it into the pan) Fold in the zest and place a pan over a medium heat.
Spray pan with cooking spray and spoon heaped tablespoons of batter, spreading the batter out a little, into the pan. Sprinkle over 1 teaspoon of chocolate chips per pancake. Fry for around 2 minutes and then flip over and cook for a further minute.
Serve with a squeeze of fresh orange juice and a nice cup of coffee.

Enjoy xo

  1. Wow your vegan recipes are really wonderful. These pancakes look great! This morning I am going to make vegan baked doughnuts but we often like to have the Jus rol croissants from the tin and put chocolate inside. So good!

  2. We bake the croissants - I made it sound like we eat them raw :)

  3. Ooh I love having the Jus rol croissants with chocolate inside too! :)
