Prep Time:

Serves:

2

Ingredients

  • 2/3 cup non-dairy milk – I used unsweetened almond milk
  • 1/4 cup egg whites or 1 flax egg (1 tablespoon freshly ground flax + 3 tablespoon water)
  • 2 tablespoon mashed banana
  • 1 tablespoon chia seed
  • 1/2 cup chickpea flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • pinch white stevia concentrate powder
  • 1 tablespoon chocolate or carob chips – I used unsweetened carob chips

Instructions

  1. Combine almond milk, egg whites, banana, and chia seeds in small bowl. Allow to sit for 10 minutes – this will get the chia all gelatinous and good for your digestion. Alternatively, allow the chia to soak overnight in the milk, then add to the recipe.
  2. Preheat a small non-stick pan on medium-low heat for 2 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, combine the dry ingredients in a separate bowl, then add to the wet ingredients.
  4. Stir until just mixed. Fold in chocolate chips.
  5. Pour 1/3 of the mixture into the preheated pan. Allow the first side to cook for 2-3 minutes, or until bubbles form and the edges begin to turn golden.
  6. Flip and allow to cook for another 1-2 minutes.
  7. Place completed pancake on cooling rack and repeat with remaining batter.
  8. Serve with coconut oil, maple syrup, nut butter, or sliced banana.
