Vegan late morning chocolate chip pancakes


I have wednesdays off, so I woke up around noon confused about wether to have breakfast or lunch. So wouldn't you know it I decided to fuse them into the revolutionary concept of "Brunch"
Originated in England in the late 1800s, in case anyone cares.
Now what does a Vegan have for Brunch if they can't have dairy or eggs? A healthier version of whatever you usually have:
Vegan Superfood Protein Pancakes, instead of high-fructose corn syrup infused foamy, rubbery, white flour, glutinous excuses for traditional style pancakes (because trust me, the modern pancake is not what the creator of pancakes had in mind). And I get to stay healthy and lean, so who's conflicted now? - Nobody, because I am giving you the recipe for the Ultimate Chocolate-chip cake, Vegan-style. 

Ingredients:
1 cup buckwheat flour
1/2 cup brown rice flour
1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
2 1/2 tbs. arrowroot starch
1 1/2 cups almond milk
1 tbsp. flaxseeds mixed with 2 tbsp. water 
2 tbsp. agave or maple syrup to sweeten
or 1 1/2 tbsp. stevia
2 tbsp. raw cocoa powder
2 tbsp. chocolate flavored protein powder (I used chocolate VegaOne)
2-3 squares dark chocolate
Agave or maple syrup to drizzle on top
Coconut oil for cooking
Sauce: 1/4 cup Mixed frozen berries 1/4 cup of almond milk

Mix the dry ingredients together, and then stir in the flax egg and the almond milk as well as whatever you are using to sweeten.
Heat some coconut oil in a medium sized pan (high-medium heat) 
and take enough batter for one pancake and try to flatten it with the spoon (i helped a little with my finger because the batter is super sticky but careful you don't burn yourself). 
Cook it about 3 minutes on one side and then another 2 on the other (depends how thick it is). You will get a feel for it after the first 2 shitty ones. While it's cooking on the other side cut the chocolate squares into little bits and stick them into the pancake carefully.
Sauce: Melt the berries in the pan with the almond milk and then drizzle over pancakes along with the syrup and add some cocoa powder.

Honestly, these are so great even if you're not vegan. I don't judge anyone who isn't it's a personal choice. My roommate is not, and she loved this healthy alternative so enjoy!

Love you all,

J
