Chocolate equals love. So, start Valentines--or any day--off with some chocolate pancakes. These pancakes are light and fluffy thanks to aquafaba. And, they're free of: gluten,dairy, egg, soy, peanuts and tree nuts. They're also vegan and top-8-free!
  • 2 cups gluten free flour
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • ½ cup unsweetened cocoa
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • 1½ teaspoons baking powder
  • ¾ tsp xanthan gum
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1½ cups faux buttermilk (vanilla rice mix + 1 Tablespoon apple cider vinegar)
  • 6 Tablespoons chick pea brine (also known as aquafaba)
  1. Whisk together the dry ingredients and set aside.
  2. Put the chick pea brine in a stand mixer with the whisk attachment. Blend on high until stiff peaks form (just as they would for egg whites.)
  3. Pour the faux buttermilk mixture into the dry ingredients and mix well.
  4. Gently fold in the brine into the mixture until blended.
  5. Pour onto a hot, greased griddle, and flip once the bubbles start to pop in the batter.
  6. Serve hot with a safe butter, powdered sugar or maple sysrup.
