The Quirky Veggie: Chocolate Banana Pancakes

My oh my. 

We tasked @thequirkyveggie with creating something spectacular with our Vegan Snack Box and she certainly did not disappoint... just look at that chocolatey hazelnut-y goodness. Lucky for you, Isabelle has shared with us her full recipe. We think it's only fair that we pass this on!


Banana Pancakes with Chocolate Hazelnut Sauce


Chocolate Hazelnut Sauce:

  • 1 tbsp cacao powder
  • 1-2 tsp coconut sugar
  • 1/4 tsp corn flour
  • 120 ml plant milk
  • 15g vegan butter
  • 35g bar of Ombar Hazelnut Truffle

Banana Pancakes:

  • 60g buckwheat flour
  • 50ml plant milk
  • 50ml sparkling water
  • 1 ripe banana (mashed)
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract


  1. In a small saucepan, add the cacao, corn flour, coconut sugar and mix together. Then, gradually pour in the milk - whisking as you add.
  2. On a low-medium heat, whisk until it reaches boiling point then reduce to a simmer. Keep stirring until it thickens.
  3. Remove from the heat and stir in the butter and chopped chocolate and slowly stir until melted. Set the sauce aside. 
  4. Add the banana, plant milk, vanilla and sparkling water in a bowl and mix. 
  5. In a separate bowl, add the flour and baking powder and mix.
  6. Pour the dry mixture into the wet mixture and gently mix together.
  7. Heat a nonstick frying pan with coconut oil. Add about 1 tbsp of pancake mixture to the pan (the mixture makes approx six pancakes).
  8. When little bubbles appear on the pancake, they're ready to flip. About 1 1/2 minutes on each side.
  9. I served mine with a big drizzle of the chocolate sauce, chopped banana, crushed Creative Nature Chocolate Hazelnot Gnawbles and Wallaroo Coconut Chips. Enjoy!
