Choc Chip High Protein Pancakes (Vegan)

My lovely boy and I, have a new Sunday tradition where we walk to our local market with our dog, and pick up ingredients to make some sort of delicious breakfast.

Last week it was these morish pancakes, and the week before we had my hash browns with avocado and beans.

I could eat breakfast type foods for breakfast, lunch, and dinner if given the chance.

These pancakes are delicious, simple, filling and good for your energy levels. They also look quite cute stacked on a plate.

Keep your eyes peeled for more pancake recipes in the future.

This recipe serves three hungry people and pancakes turn out to be quite hard to photograph 😅

Choc Chip Pancakes

2 cups white whole wheat flour or regular flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
½ teaspoon salt
1 cup plain Greek or coconut yogurt
1 cup milk
2 large eggs or 1 flax egg and 1 banana
2 tablespoons coconut oil (plus extra for frying)
3 tablespoons honey or maple syrup
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
½ cup chocolate chips (check for dairy if vegan)

In a large jug, sift together flour, baking powder and salt, mixing until well combined and smooth.

Set aside flour mixture, and mix together all wet ingredients, except for the choc chips together in a large mixing bowl until creamy and light. Ensure mixture is smooth without any visible lumps (if you have lumps use a hand blender to get rid of these).

Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ones, then fold in the choc chips. When you are mixing in the choc chips, only do a little folding    as the choc chips can break and turn the batter brown.

Heat a large flat fry pan with your choice of butter and fry 1/4 cup of the batter until one side is bubbling and flip (around 1-2 minutes each side).

Serve pancakes with your choice of toppings and a cup of tea or coffee.
