Chocolate Orange ‘Jaffa [Pan]Cakes’

Happy Saturday! We all know what tomorrow means… Pancakes! I simply love Saturdays as it’s always followed by Pancake Sunday and I simply had to share this recipe with you all in anticipation of tomorrow morning 😀


The flavour of this pancake stack was inspired by a childhood favourite of mine – Jaffa Cakes which are a biscuit covered in a chocolate coating and with an orange jelly centre. Now, I wish I could veganise Jaffa Cakes *drifts into a chocolatey-orange daydream* but I am no magician so until then, these pancakes will just have to do!


Remember, that you can purchase Creative Nature’s cacao powder with a 10% discount if you use the code MONI10 at the checkout!



40g wholewheat flour
40g oat flour (simply blend Jumbo rolled oats)
2tbsp Creative Nature Cacao Powder
200ml unsweetened almond milk and juice of 1 medium-sized orange OR 1 (330ml) Rebel Kitchen Chocolate Orange Mylk Carton
1/2 tsp baking powder
1tsp coconut sugar (any granulated sweetener of your choice is fine)
1tsp coconut oil, melted
orange zest



  1. Combine the dry ingredients (flour, baking powder, cacao powder and sweetener) in a deep, medium-sized bowl, leaving a well in the centre of the bowl.
  2. Pour all the wet ingredients (almond milk and melted coconut oil) into the centre of the bowl where you made a well in the dry ingredients.
  3. Mix thoroughly until the batter is well-combined, smooth of lumps and fairly thin (add in the orange zest at this point, if using).
  4. Heat a small blob of coconut oil in a non-stick frying pan over a low-medium heat.
  5. Pour batter (I use three flat tablespoons but it will differ according to the size of your pan) onto the centre of the pan while swirling the pan’s handle, using a circular movement of your wrist, to cover the base and create a thin pancake.
  6. Wait until bubbles appear on the top side of your pancake (approx. after a minute) before flipping over with a spatula.
  7. Repeat with the rest of the batter until all your pancakes are cooked.
  8. Layer up the pancakes, filling with banana slices and serving with coconut yoghurt.
  9. Top with your favourite toppings & ENJOY!

Serves 2-3 people.
