Oh, pancakes! How we love you! Especially when you have chocolate chips.
There are a ton of pictures of these pancakes because we loved/love them. The chocolate chips and the oaty goodness captured out hearts, eyes, and taste buds.
Hearty Vegan Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Pancakes
1 ripe medium banana
1/3 cup sugar-free apple sauce
2 teaspoon baking powder
1 1/2 teaspoon white sugar
2 Tbsp flaxseed meal + ¼ cup water (mix together for 2 flax eggs)
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons all-natural peanut butter
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1/4 cup + 2 tbsp tablespoons almond milk
1 cup quick cook oats
1/2 cup whole wheat white flour
1/2 cup chocolate chips
Oil for pan/skillet
Heat pan to medium heat with oil.
Mash banana together with baking powder and apple sauce in a medium mixing bowl.
Add the sugar, flax eggs, salt, peanut butter, vegetable oil and almond milk and mix until smooth although it will still be chunky.
Add oats and flour and continue to mix until the dough is thick and all the flour is incorporated.
Add in chocolate chips.
Scoop into the pan. Due to their thickness, you will have to pay close attention for little tiny air bubbles to pop then flip... or just see when the bottom is golden!
Enjoy. You can add extra chocolate chips if you would like (we grant you permission).
