BANANA CHOCOLATE CHIP PANCAKES WITH EXPRESS CHOCOLATE  SAUCE (by Alice Pages) // vegan + grain-free 

Purely Elizabeth Vegan Pancakes

Ingredients
Pancakes:
1 medium ripe banana
1/4 cup almond milk 
1/4 cup plant-based yogurt 
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tbsp dark chocolate chips 
Chocolate sauce:
1 tbsp raw cacao powder 
1 tbsp maple syrup 
1 tbsp melted coconut oil 
Toppings:
Seasonal fruits
Maple syrup
Directions

Peel and mash the banana using a fork until puréed. Add the Purely Elizabeth Pancake Mix to a large mixing bowl. Then add the mashed banana, almond milk, yogurt and vanilla and stir until just combined. It’s okay if the batter is not perfectly smooth. It’s better not to over-mix for light and fluffy pancakes! Fold-in the dark chocolate chips and let the batter sit for 5 minutes. Grease a non stick pan with vegetable oil and put over medium heat. Pour a big spoon of batter onto the pan and spread out gently into a round shape with the back of a ladle. When bubbles begin to appear on the surface, flip the pancake with a spatula and cook for another minute on the other side. Repeat the previous steps until all the batter is used. Prepare the chocolate sauce. Mix by hand all the ingredients until you get a smooth and silky consistency. Serve the pancakes with fresh fruits, maple syrup and a drizzle of chocolate.
