Chocolate Chia Pancakes


Try these protein packed, healthy, and tasty breakfast or brunch treats. The good news is that these pancakes are gluten free (using almond meal) and dairy free (using almond milk), and very easy to prepare and cook. Cacao and chia seeds are a great superfood combination and you can just drizzle your favorite stewed fruit or good old maple syrup on top. I like to use sweet sunny strawberries (locally grown) for our topping, and to entice the fussy eaters in the household.
