Healthy Milo Pancakes

This pancake is really yummy I can eat it not only for breakfast but also desserts or snack! :)
Look so sinful, huh? Surprisingly, this pancake will not make you feel so guilty since it's gluten free and you can opt for dairy free too, also it's eggless :)



 

Eat with strawberry and melted dark chocolate. This will chase all blues away LOL

 
 
 
What you need:
(makes 6 medium size pancakes)
 
1 cup ground oats (I grinded rolled oats til fine)
2 tbsp Milo powder (original recipe: cacao powder -> healthier!)
1/2 tbsp baking powder (I used double acting)
1/2 tsp cinnamon powder
1/8 tsp salt
1/8 cup brown sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 tsp apple cider vinegar
3/4 cup fresh milk (original recipe: non dairy milk)
1/4 cup applesauce (I used my homemade applesauce)
1/4 cup semi sweet chocolate chips
 
Method:
  1. In a bowl, mix together oats, Milo, baking powder, cinnamon, salt and sugar
  2. In a separate bowl, mix in vanilla, apple cider vinegar, milk, applesauce
  3. Pour in wet ingredients into dry ingredients and mix til just combined
  4. Fold in chocolate chips and let the mixture stand for 10mins
  5. Heat a non stick pan and scoop about 50ml (close to 1/4 cup) of the batter and wait til the surface bubbled. Flip over and cook for about 1-2mins
  6. Repeat the procedure til the batter all used up
  7. Serve with strawberry slices and melted dark chocolate
Note:
  • The texture of this pancake is soft and fluffy with slight chewiness since oat flour is used. All purpose flour or whole wheat flour can be used if you don't have to go gluten free, and it'll be less chewy
  • You can opt for non dairy milk if you want to have a dairy free pancake. Almond, oat, cashew, soy or rice milk is good substitute
  • Using cacao powder is definitely healthier option but don't forget to increase the sugar used since cacao is unsweetened, or you can follow what the original did by adding 1 tbsp of maple syrup
 
 Healthy indulgent breakfast, anybody?
