10-Minute Fluffy American-Style Chocolate Coated Pancakes

Hungry?

Not got much time?

Sweet tooth?

Try these 10-minute fluffy, American-style chocolate pancakes (can be gluten and dairy free, should you have any allergies / intolerances).

Handy to make a load for on-the-go or as a late night snack whilst watching a film... 

Plus, they're pretty high in fibre and protein to help keep you full!​

Ingredients (Makes 4 American-Style pancakes):​

  • 130 g of gram flour (chickpea flour)
  • 1 teaspoon of baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon of salt
  • 140 ml of almond milk (or usual milk)
  • 1 egg
  • 2 servings of Stevia / Truvia to sweeten (or 1 scoop of flavoured whey protein powder if you need the protein)
  • 1 kcal fry spray for frying
  • Drop of apple cider vinegar (optional to help make them fluffier)
  • Optional: 5 g cocoa powder

For the topping:

  • 30 g of dark chocolate (I used 70% cocoa)
  • A drop of almond milk / milk
  • Handful of chopped strawberries

​Method:

1. Mix the flour, baking powder, salt, cocoa powder, stevia / protein powder in a bowl

2. In a separate bowl, mix​ the milk and egg and slowly mix this into the flour mix until you get a smooth batter (with no lumps)

​3. Heat some 1 kcal fry spray in a pan and pour in 1/2 the mixture (less or more depending on size of your pan) over a medium heat. 

4. Turn the pancake after 2 minutes / when the top is bubbling​, making sure both sides are golden and slightly risen.

5. Melt the chocolate with a drop of milk ​in a saucepan

6. Stack the pancakes up and top with strawberries and the melted chocolate!​
