Homemade Chocolate Chip Pancakes

August 27, 2018northernirishgirlonline

Hey my loves,

I have absolutely loved cooking and as the years have passed, I have become more and more aware of the food we (my husband and I) are eating, what we are buying in that we could make ourselves for half the price and looking at the ingredients we use. In our household we are meat eaters, however, I can take it or leave it.

Anyways, enough background on our food habits. As I have mentioned in other blog posts, I am a huge follower of Anna Saccone – Joly’s Youtube channel, family Youtube channel and her blog. Every Sunday, Anna makes her blueberry pancakes for her family, her recipes are usually really healthy versions of foods, my husband and I both love pancakes so I thought I’d give her recipe a try, with my own twist. So, without further ado, let’s get stuck into the recipe. You can find Anna’s website here.

  • 1½ cups of Almond Flour (or Whole Wheat Flour)
  • 1½ tbsp of coconut flakes (or brown sugar)
  • 3 tbsp of baking powder (not all baking powder is gluten-free, check back for my recipe on gluten free homemade baking powder)
  • ⅛ tsp Pink Himalayan Salt (or Sea Salt)

  • 1½ cups of coconut milk (or alternatively, semi-skimmed/skimmed/almond/rice milk can also be used)
  • 3 tbsp of coconut oil (you can also use a few spritzes of Fry-Lite or almond butter)


  1. Heat your frying pan to medium heat using coconut oil (or the oil/butter of your choice, this is not using the tbsp above, this is an extra amount). 
  2. Combine the dry ingredients leaving out the last ingredient (chocolate chips) if you prefer to have them on top.
  3. Add the milk and oil to the mixture and mix until smooth.
  4. Spoon the batter into the pan.
  5. Drop the chocolate chips in from a safe splatter distance into the batter mixture in your pan.
  6. Flip when you see bubbles in the middle of your pancake, or when the edges are turning golden brown or stiffening up. 
  7. Brown your pancakes on both sides until golden brown, or cooked the whole way through, then serve with a generous helping of chocolate chips on top.

      Thank you, Nancy, let me know if you try them. I think my raspberry and blueberry ones were better than Chocolate Chip (can’t believe I said that lol). They are a good healthy option, too so you don’t even need to feel guilty!

    I love Anna, and I’m in awe every time she creates such amazing and healthy recipes! I’ve recently started making her cinnamon and date porridge in the mornings and it’s so delicious, I would definitely recommend it if you haven’t tried it out yet! These pancakes look delicious, can’t wait to try them, too 😍

      Me too! Stupid question, but do dates just taste like big raisins? I definitely want to try her sprouted oats, cinnamon and dates (if they are like raisins lol). If I could, I’d put cinnamon on everything, I have it in my morning coffee and everything and it’s lush xx

        I think dates taste better than raisins. They’re sweeter and so yummy! Oooh I didn’t think about putting cinnamon in coffee, I’m going to try that with my next cup!

          Hey love, thank you for confirming! I bought some dates the other day whilst looking for stuff to make cupcakes so I’m definitely going to try them in my porridge. Let me know how you get on with the cinnamon coffee, I think it’s perfect Fall/Winter as cinnamon always reminds me of those seasons. xo

    It looks SO yummy! I don’t why but I’m really bad in making pancakes, haha!

      Lol I can never turn them over properly and always end up splitting them down the middle. I think that’s partially why I’ve never tried to make Crepés as I know I’d completely butcher them lol
