These are all good reasons to give cocoa to your kids and make this super fluffy and healthy pancakes!
200ml milk of your choice (I used oat)
50g porridge oat
125g self raising flour (you can use plain and add 1/2 tsp of baking powder)
1 tsp almond butter (any nut butter will be fine)
1 tsp chia seeds
1 tsp coconut oil, plus extra for cooking
1 tbsp maple syrup, honey or agave (optional)
1 tbsp cocoa powder
Place all the ingredients into a food processor and pulse until they form until form a smooth, thick batter.
Let the mixture sit for 5-10 minutes so it can thicken up.
Warm some coconut oil in a pan over a medium heat. Once warm, spoon in one or two tablespoon of pancake batter into the pan and using a spoon to spread out the mixture.
As soon as the pancakes are cooked enough that you can get a pancake flipper underneath without breaking the pancakes, flip and cook an additional 2-3 minutes.
Repeat until the pancake mixture is finished.
Enjoy with your favourite toppings!
