Vegan Banana and Blueberry Protein Pancakes w Choc sauce

A while ago I posted this photo on Instagram, which received quite a lot of interest and requests to post the recipe… So here it is!

The pancakes are vegan, gluten-free, dairy-free, sugar-free, grain-free and ridiculously good for you with all the vitamins, antioxidants and superfood benefits packed into the cacao, berries, protein powder and cinnamon. It tastes like an absolute dream and is fantastic served with some yummy “nice cream” or maple syrup also. All the ingredients can be bought from your local supermarket and the recipe can accurately serve 2 people, or 1 if halved (which is what I did today). So here’s the recipe – please feel free to leave any questions or comments you may have and link me a pic of your final result on Instagram 🙂

Cook the mix up like normal, adding coconut oil to the pan when needed. Keep the pan at a medium heat and don’t let it get dry or they will stick fast!

Handy hint: You’ll be able to tell when to flip pancakes when the bubbles pop on top

Set pancakes aside on a plate and put in the oven while preparing toppings. Also chuck some plates in the oven to serve meal nice and hot!
