Vegan Banana Chocolate Pancakes

I’m not a chocolate lover, but I LOVE these pancakes.  They are not too rich like eating a chocolate bar, but they are nutty with just the right amount of that chocolate taste to satisfy your chocolate fix.  These pancakes are from Brendan Brazier’s book “Thrive: the Vegan Nutrition Guide for Optimal Performance in Sports and Life.”  ”Designed with kids in mind, these pancakes are popular for weekday breakfasts.  Unlike traditional breakfasts that most children eat, these pancakes are packed with high-quality protein, essential fatty acids, and naturally occurring vitamins and minerals” – Brendan Brazier.  So if you have kids, I have no doubt that they will love these pancakes and will be begging for more.

Here is the recipe:

Banana Chocolate Pancakes

1/4 cup roasted carob powder

1/4 cup unsweetened carob chips (I used cocoa nibs.  Those will work too).

Pancake Procedure: In a food processor, process all ingredients until smooth.  Lightly oil a pan with coconut oil and heat over medium heat.  Pour in pancake batter to desired pancake size and cook for about 5 minutes or until bubbles begin to appear.  Flip and allow to cook for another 5 minutes.
