Vegan gluten-free Banana Chocolate Chip Pancakes

Vegan Banana Chocolate Chip Pancakes

Only two more days before Pancake Day! You didn’t think I would let it pass without sharing another vegan and gluten-free pancake recipe, did you?

Vegan gluten-free Banana Chocolate Chip PancakesLast week I made a basic maple pancakes recipe with four basic main ingredients – gluten-free flour, milk, coconut oil and maple syrup. Today I’m sharing a slightly fancier recipe with a few more ingredients including chocolate chips, which is one of my favourite ingredients to add to pancakes. They instantly make them taste so much fancier and more luxurious. and who doesn’t like having chocolate for breakfast?

What would make these pancakes even more luxurious and special? Drizzling them with melted chocolate of course! You can leave this step out if you think having chocolate for breakfast is pushing it a little, but I would highly recommend it. I mean, we only celebrate Pancake Day once a year, so go on treat yourself! 

Don’t let the name of these banana chocolate chip pancakes deceive you. They may sound naughty but they’re extremely healthy made with oats, banana and Linwoods flaxseed with the addition of a little milk and oil as a binder and a little maple syrup to sweeten.
