  • ⅔ cup non-dairy milk – I used unsweetened almond milk
  • ¼ cup egg whites or 1 flax egg (1 tbsp freshly ground flax + 3 tbsp water)
  • 1 tablespoon blackstrap molasses
  • 1 tablespoon chia seed
  • 1 teaspoon gluten-free pure vanilla extract
  • 10 drops vanilla stevia or 2 tbsp xylitol *see note
  • ⅔ cup chickpea flour
  • 1 teaspoon gluten-free baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • ⅛ teaspoon ground cloves


Combine almond milk and chia and allow to sit for 10 minutes – this will get the chia all gelatinous and good for your digestion. Alternatively, allow the chia to soak overnight in the milk, then add to the recipe.

Preheat a small non-stick pan on medium-low heat for 2 minutes.

Meanwhile, combine the dry ingredients in a separate bowl, then add to the wet ingredients.

Stir until just mixed.

Pour ¼ of the mixture into the preheated pan. Allow the first side to cook for 3-4 minutes, or until bubbles form and the edges begin to turn golden.

Flip and allow to cook for another 1-2 minutes.

Place completed pancake on cooling rack and repeat with remaining batter.

Serve with melted coconut oil, maple syrup, chopped apple and pecans.

Feel free to replace the xylitol with 2 tablespoons of another type of sweetener. Palm sugar, honey, maple syrup or demerara sugar would all be good choices.

    Would it be possible to include the nutrition facts with the recipes? It helps in figuring amounts of fats, calories, protiens etc.

      Darlene, All of our recipes have data. The recipes that don't currently have the nutritional data are those contributed by guest food bloggers. Our plan is to do these as well, but it will take some time. Thanks for your patience.

    I use to figure the nutrition info for recipes. It' a bit clunky, but it works!
