Healthy Gluten-Free Dairy-Free Chocolate + Cherry Pancakes
My husband Kyle & I enjoyed a fresh homemade batch of these on our 2nd wedding anniversary. :) I improvised this recipe and it came out awesome, fluffy, light, and fulfilling. Enjoy, inshaAllah.

Wet Ingredients
  • 2 bananas
  • 1 teaspoon coconut oil
  • 5 eggs
  • 1 tablespoon almond milk
    • if using store-bought almond milk, use a brand that does not have 'carrageenan' in it, as this destroys the interested
    • you can use water if you don't have almond milk or have a nut allergy
Dry Ingredients
  • 1 teaspoon chia seeds
  • 1 tablespoon cinnamon powder
  • 1/4 cup oatmeal
  • 1/2 scoop protein powder (we used SunWarrior vegan protein powder, you can substitute an additional 1/4 cup oatmeal + 1 teaspoon chia seeds)

  • Enjoy Life Brand dark chocolate chunks

  7. Keep the cooked pancakes in a warm covered plate while you finish all batches
  8. When all pancakes have been cooked, plate them and add cherries, chocolate, and cinnamon
