Chocolate Pancakes with Caramel and Peanut Butter Sauce

0

It’s not every day we’re encouraged to eat pancakes, which is why it is important to celebrate Pancake Day, with some Chocolate Pancakes with Caramel and Peanut Butter Sauce.

Also known as Shrove Tuesday, the celebration marks the final day before Lent and originated as a way to use up leftover ingredients before the fasting period. It’s also a fantastic excuse to celebrate and enjoy one of our favourite foods.

Chocolate Pancakes with Caramel and Peanut Butter Sauce

Recipe:

Pancakes

  • 1 cup wholemeal spelt flour
  • 1 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 3 medjool dates, pitted
  • 3 Tbsp raw cacao powder
  • 1 very ripe banana

Sauce

Blend the dates and the almond milk until they are well combined and there are no chunks.

In a mixing bowl, combine the flour with the cacao powder, date/almond milk from the blender and the banana. Mash the banana through the mixture with a fork. In a non-stick frypan over medium heat, cook the pancakes for approx. 2 minutes either side. Blend the sauce ingredients until smooth and creamy. Pour over pancakes when they’re ready.
