Pancake Day, we see you.

Who else has been eagerly awaiting the arrival of Pancake Day this year? Well, every year really…

These delicious chocolate chip & cacao pancakes from Steph Elswood are an easy win for the big day — and they’re actually completely vegan-friendly too.

All you need is a handful of ingredients we’re sure you probably already have in your cupboard and a scoop of our incredible Organic Cacao Powder, which is a great natural source of fibre, protein and minerals. Oh, and it has an amazing rich taste too.

Who’s ready to get flippin’?

Serves 2


    • 1 ripe banana
  • 2 tsp. vegetable oil
  • 150ml oat milk
  • 120g self-raising flour
  • ¼ tsp. salt
  • ½ tsp. baking powder
  • 60g chocolate chips
  • 1 scoop Organic Cacao Powder
Optional toppings:


  1. First, mash the banana in a bowl until smooth.
  2. Then add the vegetable oil and oat milk. Sift in the flour, salt, and baking powder and stir until you have a smooth batter.
  3. Pour in the chocolate chips and then add a scoop of Organic Cacao Powder. Mix everything well to properly combine.
  4. Spoon a ladle of the mixture into a hot frying pan and cook for around 2 minutes until flipping and cooking on the other side. Repeat until all the batter is used up.
  5. Top your stack with berries, a dollop of coconut yoghurt, and plenty of Sugar-Free Syrup.
