Cocoa Nib Pancakes (Dairy free)

Pancakes are so easy to make I really can't fathom why on earth people buy pancake mix. Most kitchens have the necessary ingredients for regular pancakes already in stock and most vegan kitchens will have the ingredients for these pancakes as well. The only thing preventing these pancakes from being vegan is the single egg. We get our eggs from a local free run farm that really cares for their chickens. We don't eat eggs often but I don't really have an issue with having them on hand, when we can get them. You can make this recipe totally vegan by using an egg replacer or just omitting the egg all together.


1 cup unbleached flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
2 tbsp agave
1 1/2 cups original coconut milk
1 egg (we get eggs from a local free run poultry farm)
2 tbsp raw cacao nibs
Fruit and ground almonds for topping

Heat up a skillet over medium while you mix up all the ingredients. Add a small amount of coconut oil to the pan before adding however much batter you like. I like a few small pancakes but the kids like one giant pancake so whatever you prefer. When the batter starts to bubble flip the pancakes over once brown take out and place on a warm plate in the oven. Repeat. Once all the pancakes are done top them with fruit, ground almonds and a few coca nibs. You can add maple syrup but I just use a drizzle of maple syrup. Enjoy!
