Pancakes are something many people will go for when at a restaurant, or when making breakfast on the weekend. If you don’t love pancakes, you can go check out my vegan gluten-free french toast here. Pancakes are delicious, but they tend to be full of eggs, dairy, and of course wheat. Because I can’t eat gluten, and I don’t want to eat eggs or dairy, I decided to make my own gluten-free vegan version, with vegan chocolate chips to mix things up a bit. I love chocolate, and what could be better than eating chocolate for breakfast?
After mixing up all of my ingredients, I put my skillet on the stove and turned it to medium heat. It’s important to let your pan heat up for a minute when making pancakes before adding the batter, so that you have consistent heat. I started out without any butter or oil, but then I added Earth Balance butter because my nonstick pan is a little worn out and the pancakes were sticking . If you have a nonstick pan, then you don’t need to use any oil or butter, but if you don’t I would recommend using something.
Once my pancakes were finished I topped them with Redi Whip almond milk whipped cream, slice strawberries, and blueberries. I know this picture doesn’t really show the pancakes, but I promise they were great.
