Why Spelt Flour?

Spelt flour is a good source of fibre and protein and great slightly healthy alternative flour to wheat flour as it can be easier to digest. The texture is light and airy and bakes very similar to wheat flour therefore it can be substituted in baking cakes, cookies and pancakes.

Takes = 15-20 minutes
Makes = about 9 small pancakes

Ingredients

  • White Spelt flour – 140g (about 1 cup)
  • Cocoa powder – 30g (about 2 tbsp)
  • Oat milk (or regular) – 200 to 250ml (about 1 cup to taste)
  • Large egg – 1
  • Baking powder – 1/2 tsp
  • Bicarbonate of soda (baking soda) – 1/2 tsp
  • Milk chocolate chips – 1/4 cup
  • Sugar (optional) – 2 tsp

  5. POUR – approx. 1/4 cup or large spoonful of batter, depending on the size you like
  6. COOK – one side 2-3 mins, once bubbles appear, then flip. Should be golden brown, turn the pan down if cooking too fast.
  7. FLIP – cook second side for approx, 1 min, this side will be faster.
