Buckwheat pancakes with banana and avocado chocolate mousse…
Whether it’s a quick pancake rolled around a banana on the way to school drop off…. or a mid morning snack of decadent yet beautifully healthy chocolate mousse topped goodness… There’s nothing better than buckwheat pancakes!!
1 cup buckwheat flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 1/4 cup almond milk
1/2 tsp vanilla bean paste
1 tablespoon chia seeds – optional
Mix together ingredients and cook just like a normal pancake
Banana and avocado chocolate mousse..
4 dates – or 2 medjool dates if you have them (but if you’re anything like me they don’t last even an afternoon in the house) so I generally use standard dates and soak in hot water for a few minutes to soften
1 table spoon cacao powder
Using a stick blender blend ingredients until well combined
Spread over and between pancakes and top with frozen berries and shredded coconut
To make it easy I’ll usually have a pancake making session while I’m cooking breakfast/ dinner or doing the dishes and will freeze a few ziplock bags with a couple of serves of pancakes in each. Then when I’m hungry all I have to do is defrost and enjoy.
