Chocolate Chia Pancakes

These plant-based pancakes are packed full of healthy omega-3 fats courtesy of a hefty sprinkling of brain-boosting chia seeds. Dairy-free and made without egg, whip up a batch for a Veganuary feast this month

These fluffy plant-based chocolate pancakes are packed with chia seeds, which add a delicious texture to an already fluffy pancake! Chia seeds are also full of antioxidants, fibre and healthy omega-3 fat. I love making this on a weekend, when I have a little more time to make as much mess as I want. The rolled oats and buckwheat flour are also excellent energy for a winter run too!
