Preparation time : 10 min Cooking time : 15 min
Ingredients
  • 1 banana
  • 1 cup plant-based milk
  • 1 cup buckwheat flour or gluten-free oat flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp vanilla paste
  • coconut oil, for frying
  • ESPRESSO CHOCOLATE SAUCE
  • 1 Tbs raw cacao powder
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil
  • 1/4 cup coconut cream
  • 2 tsp maple syrup or honey
  • 1/2 tsp instant espresso powder
  • TO SERVE
  • banana, sliced
  • seeds and nuts, toasted
  • maple syrup
Method

Add the banana to a mixing bowl and mash well with a fork. Add the milk, flour, baking powder and vanilla paste, and then whisk to a smooth batter. Leave to stand and thicken slightly for a few minutes while you prepare the chocolate sauce. 


For the espresso chocolate sauce, whisk all the ingredients together in a small saucepan over low heat until silky.


To cook the pancakes, heat a little coconut oil in a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat. Cook the pancakes in batches (using 1–2 Tbsp of batter at a time) until golden and bubbles appear on the surface (2–3 minutes). Turn over and cook on the other side.  


Serve the pancakes immediately with the espresso chocolate sauce and extra toppings of your choice.
