  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 1 cup + 2 tablespoon almond milk or milk of choice
  • 2 tablespoon coconut oil melted and cooled to room temperature
  • 2 flax eggs
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup
  • 2/3 cup all purpose flour regular or gluten free
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoon chocolate chips divided


  • Stir the oats and milk together in a large bowl, then let them sit for 10 minutes which will create an oatmeal-like consistency. While you're waiting, melt the coconut oil and the flax eggs. To make flax eggs: stir 2 tablespoon flaxseed meal and 5 tablespoon water together and let the mixture sit for 5-10 minutes.
  • Next, add the coconut oil, flax eggs and maple syrup to the bowl with the oats and stir to combine.
  • Last, add the flour, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt to that same bowl and stir to combine.
  • Heat a greased griddle or large nonstick skillet over medium heat, then use a 1/4 cup measuring cup to scoop the batter onto the griddle. Cook the pancakes for 3 minutes on the first side, then sprinkle each pancake with a few chocolate chips, flip them over and cook for an additional 1 minute until the pancakes are set.
  • Top the pancakes with your favorite vegan yogurt and/or a sprinkle of cinnamon and enjoy!
