Vegan Chocolate Chip Pancakes with Whipped Cinnamon Vanilla Cream Cheese


So, after our wedding we couldn't take a honeymoon.  However, I am determined that we will some time.  But, my husband got a few days off work, so we had some extra family time which is always great!
So, I told him I would make a special breakfast, and this is what we had.  Not your everyday healthy start, but it tastes amazing!!
This is an easy easy version.

The way I did it was totally vegan.  You wouldn't be able to tell, and you won't miss the animal products in this tasty treat, promise!

Makes 4-6 (Very Filling)
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 cup all purpose flour
1 tablespoon sugar
2 tablespoons baking powder
dash of salt
dash of cinnamon
2 tablespoons canola oil
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup almond milk or any non dairy milk you like
2-3 tablespoons vegan chocolate chips. (Ghiradelli semi-sweet)

Preheat a large skillet on medium with some canola oil.  In a large bowl add all dry ingredients and stir.  Then, add the rest except chips and mix well. It will be thick which will make for some awesome and filling cakes.  Lastly, fold in a couple of tablespoons of the chips.

Cream Cheese:
1 8oz tub of Tofutti Cream Cheese
2 tsp vegan butter
1ish tsp of cinnamon
1 ish tsp of vanilla
1-3 tablespoons of sugar

I used some short cuts on this to save time.  Put all of the cream cheese in a medium bowl and microwave for a few seconds to soften.  Add the butter and micro again for another 10 or so seconds.  Then, you can even skip the mixer and whip with a whisk!  Whip until smooth and combined.  Add the rest of ingredients, and sugar to taste.  Whip again until mixed.  Use a spatula to get all the goodies out of the whisk.

Make your pancakes and I like to add a few more chips when they are cooking and some to garnish, and they get all melty!  The pancakes won't bubble like normal cause they are thick, so just watch them.  Flip them when they are golden. Serve right away, enjoy!!

What's left of my beautiful wedding bouquet!  Designed and arranged by my mother!

  1. Is this thing legal? I'm not sure you are allowed to make this dish promote it without offering samples for everyone to try. Wow.
