Vegan Raw Cacao Pancakes

This years pancakes are a little different that normal. I will admit that it did take me quite a few goes to get them just right, but I did do it!

These pancakes are not only vegan but are also gluten free and so delicious!

This is what I did...

Vegan Raw Cacao Pancakes

Ingredients - makes about 10 pancakes

150g chestnut flour
2tbsp raw cacao
270mls almond milk
2tbsp hemp oil
1tsp vanilla paste
1tsp cinnamon


1 - Place the flour, raw cacao and cinnamon in a mixing bowl

2 - Add the almond milk, hemp oil and vanilla paste and whisk until you have a smooth batter

3 - Heat a crepe pan with a little hemp oil

4 - Add the batter a spoon at a time, cook for a couple of minutes then flip over and cook for a further 2 minutes

5 - Serve with a drizzle of maple syrup

These pancakes are simply scuptious. The nutty chestnut flour combined perfectly with the raw cacao. With the finishing drizzle of maple syrup they really are a delicious and healthy pancake!

  1. These are pretty unusual pancakes but so healthy! I didn't even know chestnut flour existed! Do you think that can be replaced with maybe buckwheat flour?

    1. Yes buckwheat will definitely work as it has a similar nutty flavour x

  2. Chocolate pancakes, mmmmmm :)
