What are your favourite pancakes?

Pancakes are a weekend favourite (who am I kidding, an anytime favourite). I wanted to make a more decadent pancake, but still somewhat health-charged, so I paired chia seeds with cocoa powder to make fluffy and delightful little pancakes. I roasted plums on an iron skillet with cinnamon and sugar, and what a glorious topping they make for any kind of pancake!

Chocolate Chia Pancakes with Spiced Plums

  • 1 Tblsp cacao powder
  • 1 Tblsp cocoa powder
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 3 Tblsp chocolate, melted
  • 1 Tblsp chia seeds
  • 1 1/3 cup gluten free flour
  • 1 Tblsp corn meal
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 large egg
  • 3/4 cup almond milk (add more if the batter is too thick)
  • 1 Tblsp oil
  • about 10-15 small plums, peeled and pitted, and quartered
  • 1 Tblsp sugar
  • half a cinnamon stick

Directions:

  1. In an iron skillet (or regular pan), combine 1 Tblsp sugar with about 2 Tblsp water. Add the quartered plums and cook on medium-low heat.
  2. While the plums are cooking, in a large bowl, whisk together the cacao powder, cocoa powder, brown sugar, chia seeds, gluten free flour, salt, and corn meal.
  3. Whisk in the egg and almond milk. If the batter is still too thick, add some more almond milk (should run easily off of the spoon).
  4. Finally, stir in the melted chocolate.
  5. Grease and Heat a large pan to medium-high heat. Pour small amounts of the batter onto the pan (maybe 2-3 spoonfulls at a time) to form the pancakes. Cook on each side for about 2mins.
  6. By the time you are done making the pancakes, the plums will have cooked down nicely!
  7. Top your pancakes with the spiced plums and serve with honey or maple syrup.

Makes about 8 medium-sized pancakes.
