So, have you ever managed to use 12 eggs in 3 days?

That happened

and then I had a craving for pancakes, and chocolate chip cookies.

It wasn’t an ideal situation because, no eggs = it’s hard to make pancakes. Or so I thought.

Turns out mashed banana is your best bro when it comes to making pancakes without eggs. Binding yo.

Oh and also, lots of chocolate helps too (did I mention I managed to buy 5 kg of 70% Callebaut the other day? Literally just because it was half the price and came in 2.5 kg bags. If you know me, you know I love 70% chocolate, so having that much chocolate around makes me extremely happy. Not to mention the bag has it’s own TRADE MARKED sealing system for chocolate called Choclock – that has got to make you laugh).

I made my Pancakes for One, but subbed extra banana for the egg whites. I also didn’t have any oat flour already ground, so I just used whole oats and blended everything up like an oaty blizzard. Then I added some dates for sweetness, and chocolate chips. Thus they ended up being gluten free and vegan, and solved this cookie/pancake/no-egg dilemma ALL AT THE SAME TIME.

It’s like I just made a cake for you, then told you I was also paying you £5 to eat it.

It’s not really like that, because lets be honest I’m broke (new camera + Paris #galsontour trip, heyoo…) so I wouldn’t give you that fiver and a free cake. STILL though, it’s a pretty sweet deal.

Is it breakfast, is it dessert? Who knows, I ate them at 3 pm today.

That’s not illegal.

That’s afternoon tea. Thanks Britain.

Chocolatey pancakes after breakfast/before dessert: JUSTIFIED.

Did I put maple syrup on them too?








– The recipe was inspired by Dana’s Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookie Pancakes and adapted from a mixture of that recipe plus my Pancakes for One recipe.

– If you’re allergic to gluten, make sure your oats and baking powder are certified gluten free.

Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookie Pancakes for One {vegan + gluten free}

Serving Size: 4-5 small pancakes

1/2 cup (40 g) old fashioned oats
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp vanilla extract
1 ripe banana, peeled
1/4 cup (60 ml) milk (any kind - e.g. almond, cashew, oat, cow's - obvs don't use cow's milk if you're vegan)
2 dates, pitted
2-3 tbsp dark chocolate chips, plus more for topping (vegan, if required)
coconut oil, for frying (you can use regular vegetable oil too)

Blend all the ingredients, except the chocolate chips, in a food processor or blender, until well mixed. Stir in the chocolate chips.

Heat a non-stick frying pan with a little coconut oil. Dollop the batter into the frying pan (I go for a heaped tablespoon of batter) and spread out a bit with a spoon. Cook until lightly golden underneath, then flip and cook until the other side is golden. Serve warm with the remaining chocolate chips.

    My sister is allergic to coconut. And it says use coconut oil for pan. Is there a substitute that would be any good that is non-dairy?

  2. Robin says

    Yes, yes, the recipe looks great. But the commentary is what made me want to write. Made me laugh! Thank you for your humor!

    i just found this recipe and am so excited not only to have it, but because of the china pattern that you photographed the pancakes on! My grandmother bought two patterns with violets on them while in Europe in the 1950’s, I believe and I now own both sets. I was wondering if yours is either Spring Violets made by Royal Chelsea in England or a pattern by Johann Haviland from Bavaria in Germany? I also have a teapot by Royal Grafton as well. I have never seen anyone here in America with these China patterns and was so excited to see yours!
