Dirty Chai Latte Pancakes

Dirty Chai Latte Pancakes are the tastiest breakfast treat. The perfect blend of chai flavors and coffee, these pancakes are a flavorful gluten-free vegan dish.

Dirty Chai Latte Pancakes

These Dirty Chai Latte Pancakes are soo delicious! They've got tons of chai spices for lots of flavor, and also the bold kick of coffee. It's like a latte in pancake form! I love how these pancakes (besides being pancakes) just scream breakfast with the flavor combos.

Since they've got both sets of flavors you could easily devour these pancakes alongside chai tea, a chai tea latte, black coffee, a regular latte... the possibilities are endless!

Dirty Chai Latte Pancakes

Ingredients

  • Oat Flour: Oat flour is the base of these pancakes. I love using oat flour because it is so easy to make yourself and can be gluten-free if necessary.
  • Baking Powder & Baking Soda: To help the pancakes rise and cook properly.
  • Chai Spices: ginger, cinnamon, cardamom, nutmeg, allspice, cloves
  • Cold Brew Coffee: Cold brew is usually pretty strong, but be sure to select a cold brew that has tons of coffee flavor. Also, avoid buying a brand with added sugar.
  • Lemon Juice: For a bit of tang, and for acid to react with the baking powder and soda.
  • Maple Syrup: To add sweetness to the pancakes. You could sub date syrup for a completely fruit sweetened pancake.
  • Toppings: Chocolate Chips, Blueberries, Coconut Yogurt, etc.

Hi Could you please confirm two things:1. The amount of salt. Seems like too much. 2. The directions say there is lemon juice in the dressing but it’s not listed under ingredients. ThanksL.
Hi there! Confirming that the two teaspoons of salt in the dressing is correct. I didn't salt the cauliflower when roasting it or the salad after it was done, so this amount of salt was perfect. If you're concerned about it you can decrease the amount of salt in the dressing and then add more at the end if you need it. As for the lemon juice, SO sorry about that! It was a typo in my directions and I've removed it now. Hope this helps :)

This looks lovely! Do you have a recipe for the red pepper hummus also? Thank you!
Hi Martha! I don't have a recipe for red pepper hummus on my site. I suggest taking a traditional hummus recipe and blending in roasted red pepper.

I tried these and they were delicious! A bit dense but flavorful and the "buckeye" blend of peanut and chocolate was on point! Recommend!
Yay! I'm so glad you liked them! -- Elizabeth

Hi, these look amazing. I was wondering, could I used powdered peanut butter in place of creamy for the recipe? thanks
Hi Grace! There is already some powdered peanut butter in this recipe, so adding more might make the texture more gluey. Also, the real peanut butter adds some fat, which helps create flavor. That said, if you want to use powdered peanut butter, I would suggest mixing it with a high-fat liquid like coconut cream and then measuring out 2/3 cup. Hope this helps! Let me know how it goes :) -- Elizabeth

You mention using vegetable broth in your introduction but it isn’t included in the recipe
Hi Becky - thanks for pointing this out. I have removed mention of vegetable broth from this post. You do not need any vegetable broth. The mushrooms will release natural liquid which will prevent any sticking. -- Elizabeth

thank you for the oil free recipe. I'm getting introduced to wild Bolete mushrooms here in Colorado, and everyone sautes Bolete's in butter or olive oil. I'm on a veggie, oil free regimen for heart health reasons. and your recipe suggestion may fill the bill. I can't wait to give it a try.
