Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 20 minutes
Total Time 30 minutes
- 1 cup Silk Vanilla Protein Nutmilk
- 2 teaspoons apple cider vinegar
- 1/4 cup hot water
- 1 tablespoon instant coffee granules
- 1 cup unbleached all-purpose flour
- 1/2 cup whole wheat pastry flour
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
- 2 tablespoons sugar/evaporated cane juice
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 1/4 cup vegan chocolate chips
- 1/2 cup vegan chocolate chips
- 3 tablespoons Silk Vanilla Protein Nutmilk
- 3 tablespoons maple syrup
In a small bowl, stir protein nutmilk and apple cider vinegar together, set aside to curdle for 5 minutes, making vegan buttermilk. In another small bowl, whisk together hot water and coffee granules, until they dissolve.
Sift flours, baking powder, baking soda and salt together in a large mixing bowl. Stir coffee mixture, sugar, oil, and vanilla into the buttermilk; then pour wet mixture into dry mixture. Whisk together until combined but still a little lumpy, do not over mix. Fold chocolate chips into batter until incorporated.
Line a hot griddle, or large pan over medium heat, with a thin coating of high-heat cooking oil. Using a 1/4-cup measuring cup, scoop batter onto hot griddle, keeping at least an inch between pancakes. You may need to spread the batter out a little into a circle shape.
Cook for 2-3 minutes, or until there are no new bubbles and the edges start to brown lightly, then carefully flip pancakes. Cook for another 2 minutes, and place pancakes on plates.
Repeat until the rest of the batter is used up. While the pancakes are cooking, make chocolate sauce.
Place chocolate chips, protein nutmilk, and maple syrup into a bowl. Either melt chocolate chips in the microwave (1 minute), or in a double boiler, then quickly whisk together until very smooth.
After pancakes are done cooking, stack 'em and drizzle this sauce all over! Optional: sprinkle with powdered sugar (pretty and tasty).
