Tiny Table Cooks… Ombar’s Chocolate & Pistachio Vegan Pancakes

Welcome to Tiny Table Cooks… – a failsafe stash of recipes set to keep you and your family fed whilst we all stay snug indoors over these somewhat uncertain times. We’ve teamed up with some of the country’s best cooks, bakers and foodies to bring you some tasty inspo, store cupboard saviours and freezable feasts.

We’ve teamed up with our friends at Ombar to bring you a sweet weekend breakfast treat the whole family will go flipping mad for! Made from the best raw Ecuadorian cacao, Ombar chocolate is all-natural, plant-based and free of refined sugar – sweetened with coconut sugar and made with organic cacao powder and cacao butter. From Coco Almond and Coco Mylk to our fave – Salt & Nibs, the choice is plentiful and we love that waste is kept to a minimum with their bags of broken bars.

Ombar’s Chocolate & Pistachio Vegan Pancakes

Ingredients
For the Pancakes

1½ cups plain flour
3 tablespoons coconut sugar
2 teaspoons baking soda
½ teaspoon baking powder
Pinch of salt
1¼ cups nut milk
1 teaspoon vanilla bean paste (or extract)
2 tablespoons melted coconut oil, plus more for cooking
1 x 35g Ombar 72% chocolate, chopped
½ cup chopped shelled pistachios

For the Chocolate Sauce
1 x 35g Ombar 72% chocolate, chopped
Teaspoon of coconut oil

To Serve
1 x 35g Ombar Pistachio Centre
Chopped pistachios

Method
1.Mix together the dry ingredients in a large bowl. Set aside.
2. In a large measuring cup, whisk together the nut milk, vanilla and melted coconut oil.
3. Slowly pour the wet ingredients into the dry, stirring slowly to gradually incorporate. Mix well until everything is combined and don’t worry too much about any lumps. 
4. Gently fold in the melted chocolate and pistachios.
5. Heat a large frying pan over medium heat and add a little coconut oil. Once the pan is hot, add the batter in ?-cup measurements for each pancake.
6. Cook until the underside has browned and the batter on top begins to form bubbles, then carefully flip the pancake and cook for another minute or so on this side. Keep the cooked pancakes warm in a 100°C while you cook the rest of the batch.
7. Melt the chocolate with a little coconut oil either in the microwave or a bain marie.
8. Finally, stack the pancakes, drizzle with warm chocolate sauce, sprinkle with pistachios and top with a bar of pistachio Ombar.
