Calories: 585kcal


  • 1 ½ cups whole wheat pastry flour (can sub with half all purpose and half whole wheat)
  • ¼ cup cocoa powder
  • 1 ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ¼ teaspoon sea salt
  • ½ cup coarsely ground walnuts (optional)
  • 1 ¾ cups non-dairy milk
  • 2 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
  • 2 tablespoon flax meal (whisked with 6 tablespoon lukewarm water to make 2 flax "eggs")
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • ¼ cup applesauce

For chocolate sauce

  • 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1 cup nondairy milk
  • ½ teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • ¼ cup maple syrup


  • Whisk the whole wheat pastry flour, baking powder, baking soda, cocoa powder, salt, and walnuts in a large bowl.
  • In another bowl, mix the non-dairy milk with the apple cider vinegar and let stand a couple of minutes. Add the flax eggs, vanilla extract and applesauce and whisk to mix.
  • Pour the wet mixture into the dry, and mix until it just comes together with no visible dry lumps. Don't overmix or try to make the batter very smooth. 
  • Heat a griddle and pour ⅓ cup of the batter in the center. Wait until the edges look dry and a few bubbles appear on top. Flip with a spatula and cook the other side for a minute or until done.

Make the chocolate sauce

  • Heat the milk until it is scalding hot but not boiling.
  • Place the chocolate chips, vanilla and maple syrup in a bowl. Pour the hot milk on top and use a whisk to stir until all the chocolate is melted.
  • Let the chocolate sauce stand while you make the pancakes which allows it to thicken a little.
  • Pour over the pancakes and enjoy!
