I don’t know about you, but I have always been keen on trying new things. And the idea of a hot pancake, hot referring to the taste, not the heat at which they are served, I though wow, I have to try these. And I did, and boy am I glad I did. Go ahead and try these babies, and be ready for a sweet pancake bite with a hot punch to it.
2 cups flour
¼ cup cocoa powder (or more if you are aiming at more chocolate-y pancakes)
½ cup sugar
½ teaspoon cinnamon
3 teaspoons baking powder
½ teaspoon salt
2 eggs (or egg substitute)
2 tablespoons applesauce (or for a smoother mix, use oil)
1 ½ cup almond milk (or regular, or soy milk)
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
A pinch of cayenne pepper
¼-½ cup Marshmallow Bits (Optional)
In a large bowl combine the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, cinnamon, salt and cayenne pepper and mix them until you get a homogenous mix. In a separate bowl whisk the eggs, apple sauce (plus a bit of oil), the vanilla extract and the almond milk. Proceed to adding the wet ingredients into the dry ones and mix until well combined. Set for a minute and be ready to fold in the marshmallow bits. Heat a pan over medium heat; spill some oil and using a scoop pour the pancake mix into the pan. Cook for about 2 minutes on each side. Top your pancakes with some chocolate syrup and the optional Marshmallow Bits. Enjoy!
