Chocolate Chia Pancake Recipe



You can make the chocolate sauce ahead of time and store in the fridge.

Healthy Chocolate Chia Pancake Recipe


  1. For the pancakes:
  • 60g oats
  • 15g raw cacao powder or cocoa powder
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 60g ripe banana
  • 125ml unsweetened almond milk
  • 7g (about a tablespoon) milled chia seeds (this recipe uses Linwoods milled chia)
  • 1-2 tsp maple syrup (add according to your preference)
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  1. For the chocolate sauce:
  • 1 tbsp (7g) raw cacao powder or cocoa powder
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup
  • 2 tbsp full-fat coconut milk
  • 1 tsp arrowroot starch
  • 1 tbsp (15ml) water


  1. Place all your pancake ingredients in a blender and blitz until smooth. Set the batter aside while you preheat the pan.
  2. Heat a nonstick pan over a medium heat and cook your pancakes. About 2 1/2 tablespoons of batter should equal 1 pancake.
  3. Cook for 2-3 minutes, flip, and cook for 2 minutes more. To make flipping easier, place pan under a preheated grill for 1 minute, return to the stovetop, and cook for 1 minute more.
  4. For the chocolate ganache, whisk together the first 3 ingredients in a pot, bring to the boil, and simmer for 2 minutes.
  5. Mix together water and arrowroot starch. Add to the pot, and whisk to combine while it simmers. Allow to heat through and thicken for 1-2 minutes.
  6. Serve pancakes topped with chocolate sauce, some hemp seeds, desiccated coconut, and blackberries.
