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!!

Buckwheat pancakes..

1 cup buckwheat flour

1 teaspoon baking powder

1 teaspoon baking soda

1 1/4 cup almond milk

1 egg

1/2 tsp vanilla bean paste

1 tablespoon chia seeds – optional

Method..

Mix together ingredients and cook just like a normal pancake

 

Banana and avocado chocolate mousse..

1 banana

1 avocado

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

Method..

Using a stick blender blend ingredients until well combined

Spread over and between pancakes and top with frozen berries and shredded coconut

mmmmm

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.
