Yesterday was my baking day. My cooking day. I was honestly in the kitchen all the good long day.
…and I loved it can I please do this every single day?
First thing I made was breakfast. Double chocolate pancakes for breakfast.
This is so me:
I was able to try the line of Silk milks recently – many of which are my go to choices anyway (I love their coconut and almond milks).
…and I love chocolate milk – chocolate milk is so good, right?
I used the Silk chocolate soymilk to make these pancakes. I made them even more chocolatey by adding cocoa powder to the batter. The result is a rich, fluffy, perfect pancake.
I still revel in the fact that I can make a pancake that is vegan, gluten free, and still has great flavor and texture. Jason always says he cannot tell the difference, that he wouldn’t guess they were gluten free or made without eggs and dairy.
double rich chocolate pancakes
adapted from perfect cherry pancakes
dairy, egg, and gluten free, vegan
makes 12-15 medium size pancakes
2/3 cup gluten free all purpose flour
2 tablespoons cocoa powder
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon xanthan gum
1 cup Silk Chocolate Soymilk
2 tablespoons agave (or sweetener of choice)
In mixing bowl, whisk together flour, cocoa powder, baking powder and xanthan gum, stirring out lumps. Whisk in chocolate milk and agave, combine completely. Using a 1/4 cup measure, scoop batter onto an oiled skillet over medium low heat. Flip when pancakes bubble, cooking through on the other side (a minute or so each side).
From a cold glass of chocolate milk after a workout (my favorite!), to pancakes or smoothies or ice cream or a delicious roux for a decadent sauce, here are some other every day uses for dairy free milks like Silk:
