Vegan Chocolate Wholemeal Spelt Pancakes with Peanut Butter Drizzle

I am not a pancake pro but I love pancakes. I wanted to experiment with different pancake recipes since I usually just stick to my full proof buckwheat pancake/waffle recipe which you can find here I decided I really wanted to try a spelt flour pancake since I assumed it would have a fluffier texture more like the original. Honestly this recipe turned out so good I felt like I was eating at Max Brenner for breakfast. For the few people that may not know, Max Brenner is a chocolate restaurant with the most decadent desserts and treats, all extremely unhealthy and full of sugar of course but every once in a while it is worth it for the experience. I must admit I have never once gone there without feeling sick afterwards and I don’t go there very often anymore but I used to love going there back when I used to live in Melbourne. I was a student back then and could not afford much on the menu, so I would get the $2 chocolate lick and a full bottle of water to try and water down the sick feeling.

These pancakes taste like something from the Max Brenner menu, so much so that I was eating them waiting for the sick feeling to hit me, but it didn’t, not at all. I assume because the pancakes are actually super healthy, with no refined sugar, no dairy, no refined flour and no eggs. These are definitely something worth saving for a special treat and probably not something I would eat all the time, but if you really feel like something very decadent and indulgent these pancakes are your answer! enjoy!
