Dark Chocolate Chili Pancakes with Raspberry Sauce and Coconut Cream
Makes 6-9 pancakes
For raspberry sauce:
1 pound fresh or frozen raspberries (do not thaw if using frozen)
2 teaspoons turbinado or palm sugar, more to taste
For chocolate pancakes:
1 cup Pamela’s Gluten Free Baking Mix plus 2 tbs. if needed to thicken batter (available on Amazon)
1 cup coconut milk (I’ve used both unsweetened original and vanilla flavor)
1 Tablespoon coconut oil, melted
1/2 cup cacao powder (here’s the link to the brand I use, available on Amazon)
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon red chili flakes (if you want it a little less spicy, use 1/2 teaspoon instead)
1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
4 ounces chopped dark chocolate with 70% cocoa content (I like Green & Blacks — they have a 70% and an 85%)
Coconut Cream, for serving (optional) (Check out my recipe here)
Maple syrup, for drizzling
Rice Bran oil, for frying
For the raspberry sauce:
Add the raspberries and turbinado or palm sugar to a small pot. Bring to a boil and simmer over low heat for 25 to 30 minutes until raspberries have fallen apart and sauces has thickened. If you are in a hurry, you can simmer the berries for a few minutes until they are warmed through.
For the pancakes:
Mix all the ingredients, except the chopped dark chocolate in a bowl, making sure to stir out any lumps. Fold in chocolate last. Batter should not be too thin or too thick.
Preheat your medium-large non-stick skillet at medium heat. Oil the pan with Rice Bran oil*. Use 1/4 cup measure to put batter in pan.
Once you see little air bubbles forming, its probably time to flip. Cook until golden on both sides.
This is how I serve them: put desired amount of pancakes on your plate, top with raspberry sauce then top with a nice dollop of Coconut Cream. Last, drizzle with maple syrup. Sigh.
*I like using Rice Bran oil because it has a high smoke point which makes it perfect for stove top cooking.
