  • Total Time: 20
  • Prep Time: 5
  • Yield: 1 serving

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup (70 g) buckwheat flour
  • 1/4 cup (30 g) protein powder (I use chocolate protein powder, but you can simply use more flour if you don’t have any)
  • 1 Tablespoon cacao powder (unsweetened)
  • 1 teaspoon date sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 heaping Tablespoon soy yogurt
  • Dash of plant milk of choice
  • Water
  • Toppings of choice

Directions

  1. Put all the dry ingredients (buckwheat flour, protein powder, cacao powder, cinnamon, date sugar) in a big bowl.
  2. Add a dash of plant milk and some water (approx. 7 ounces). The batter should be thick and creamy.
  3. Add the soy yogurt and mix well. Now the dough is ready. If you’re not in a rush, I suggest letting it sit for about 10 minutes.
  4. Heat a non-stick pan on medium heat and wait until it’s hot.
  5. Add one tablespoon of the batter to the pan and use the spoon to even it a bit. Depending on the size of your pan, you can cook multiple pancakes at once.
  6. When you see little bubbles on the surface of the pancake, flip it over and let it cook until it gets golden brown.
  7. Repeat step 5 & 6 with the rest of your batter.
  8. Serve the warm, chocolate pancakes with everything that your heart desires. I prefer fresh and frozen berries, soy yogurt, and some cacao nibs.
