pancake serving


  • 512 tbsp wholewheat flour
  • 512 tbsp spelt flour
  • 1 tbsp unrefined brown sugar
  • 4 tbsp cacao nibs
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 12 tsp baking soda
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1 cup milk
  • 312 cup sour cream
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tbsp sunflower oil
  • dried blueberries


Mix all dry ingredients in a large bowl and whisk together.

Mix all wet ingredients in a separate smaller bowl and whisk together.

Add the wet ingredients to the dry and gently mix together (don’t over mix). Let the batter rest.

Heat a frying pan on a medium heat for 3-5 minutes until hot. If using a non-stick pan, no need to add oil. If not, then brush a small amount of butter around the pan.

Spoon a large tablespoon of batter in the centre of the pan and sprinkle some dried blueberries on top.

Flip when you start to see bubbles come to the surface of the pancake.

Cook for 30 seconds on the other side before transferring to a plate and garnishing with fresh fruit and maple syrup!
