- 1 cup organic oat flour
- 1 heaping scoop Organic Super Protein
- 1 teaspoon organic baking powder
- 1 teaspoon organic ceylon cinnamon
- 1 cup organic oat milk (or almond milk)
- ¾ cup organic applesauce (or your favorite egg substitute)
- ¼ cup melted organic dark chocolate (70%)
- 1 tablespoon organic coconut oil (plus extra for cooking)
- 2 tablespoons organic maple syrup (plus extra for garnish)
In a medium bowl, melt the dark chocolate and coconut oil together, and set aside to cool for two minutes. Then add the applesauce, maple syrup and nut milk to the mixture.
In a separate bowl, mix together the oat flour, Organic Super Protein, baking powder, and cinnamon. Stir into the first bowl of wet ingredients. If needed, add a touch of extra nut milk.
Heat iron skillet to medium and add some coconut oil. Once heated, pour spoonfuls of batter on the skillet. Cook pancakes about two minutes each side (flip once bubbles form on top) or to preferred doneness.
Serve with a touch of maple syrup and your favorite organic berries for an extra sweet and heart-healthy finish. Enjoy!
