Unless you’ve spent the past year hibernating in the Arctic, you’ll know that there’s this new craze for all things healthy and everyone is jumping on board.
One of the main things everyone is, excuse the pun, going nuts for, is Almonds. Almonds are not only delicious (who can even stop at the recommended 10 per serve?!) but also packed with fiber, calcium, iron and many other important nutrients.
Almond Breeze® has a range of delicious and nutritious lactose free almond milk that is great for people with intolerances. I’ve often found other almonds milks to be quite tasteless which lead me to avoiding them altogether but after trying Almond Breeze (especially the chocolate flavoured almond milk – yum!) I’m hooked.
And, if you’re also on the hunt for tasty almonds – like coffee almonds, fruit flavoured almonds, honey roasted almonds and for the bold, wasabi and soy-sauce almonds – Blue Diamond® Almonds are definitely my top pick.
So to honour my new found love of all things almond – here’s a chocolate almond milk pancake recipe that will set your tongues wagging.
Ingredients (serves 2)
- 1 cup Almond Breeze Milk – Chocolate Flavour
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 1 large egg
- 2 tsp baking powder
- 2 tbsps sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 2 tsps cocoa powder
- Handful of Blue Diamond Almonds Honey Roasted, chopped
- Punnet of strawberries
1. Beat the egg, add the milk and mix together.
2. In a separate bowl, mix the flour, baking powder, salt, sugar and cocoa.
3. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and mix until smooth.
4. Pour about 1/4 cup of mixture onto a hot oiled pan. Flip when bubbles cover top. Cook until dark
4. Sprinkle with chopped Blue Diamond Almonds. Serve with maple syrup and strawberries.
Fluffy and chocolaty pancakes that don’t leave me feeling bloated like they usually do (I think I might be lactose intolerant but I refuse to give up dairy because I’m stubborn and too many of my favourite foods contain dairy.) And if you’re gluten intolerant swap the flour for almond meal! Easy and still delicious for breakfast, lunch or tea.
