Easy chocolate ombre pancakes recipe

Vegan, gluten-free, wheat-free, quick & easy.

Why would anyone make normal pancakes when you could jazz them up and make a special ombre stack of pancakes?
These easy chocolate ombre pancakes are full of chocolaty flavour, topped with a creamy butterscotch sauce, vegan cream and roasted hazelnuts for crunch.

The pancakes go from rich chocolate to a plain vanilla, delicious!
I decided to top off the pancakes with a drizzle of the Natures Charm 'Butterscotch' sauce. 
This sauce is 100% vegan, dairy-free, gluten-free, wheat-free.....and scrumptious! 
 It's made with coconut oil and premium coconut milk which makes it extra silky smooth and irresistible. I'm not kidding when I say it's irresistible...when I first opened it I grabbed a spoon and had a cheeky nibble, haha!
It's the perfect sauce to dress up your pancakes! They also have a range of different sauces including caramel, chocolate fudge (which would work wonders with these chocolate pancakes) and a matcha green sauce!

These pancakes are quick & easy to make, perfect to wake up to on Pancake Day!!! 
They're 'flipping' amazing (I couldn't resist making this pancake pun).

Preparation- 5 minutes
Cooking time- 3-5 minutes  
Makes- Around 8-10 pancakes
Level- Easy

Ingredients for the pancakes
-250g of plain flour (I use gluten-free)
-1 & 1/2 tablespoons of baking powder
-2 tablespoons of golden caster sugar 
-1/4 teaspoon of salt
-300ml dairy-free milk (I use almond milk)
-3 tablespoons of oil (I use light olive oil)
-Cacao or cocoa powder 

-Butterscotch sauce (I use Nature's Charm)
-Vegan cream

Step 1- Add the flour, baking powder, sugar and salt into a bowl and mix.

Step 2- In a separate bowl, add in the dairy-free milk and oil then mix.
Set aside for 5 minutes.

Step 3- Combine the wet and dry mixture together until smooth.

Step 4- Divide the batter into 4 different bowls. In the first bowl, add 1 tablespoon of cacao or cocoa powder. Stir until it's incorporated. 
In the second bowl add in 1 teaspoon of cacao or cocoa powder. Stir until incorporated.
In the third bowl, add in a dash of cacao or cocoa powder and mix.
 Leave the last bowl as it is, plain.
The batter should transition from dark to light.

Step 5- Heat a tablespoon of oil in a frying in.

Step 6- Spoon the batter into the pan, about 2 tablespoons at a time.
Cook for around 2-3 minutes until the edges of the pancake turn golden then flip and repeat.

Step 7- Once cooked, serve.

I served my pancakes warm with a swirl of vegan cream, a drizzle of butterscotch sauce, hazelnuts and dairy-free chocolate ice cream.
