Gluten-Free Chocolate Chip Pancakes

Goodmorning world. It’s Saturday.

And we all know what that means……Wancake Day!!!!

A few months into marriage, my husband and I decided it was absolutely necessary to start a family tradition. Every Saturday morning we should have pancakes….no waffles….no pancakes…..Ugh, how were we ever to decide! He loved waffles; I loved pancakes. As good little newlyweds, we chose to compromise and thus, Wancake Day was born!

Come visit us on a Saturday morning and I can pretty much guarantee that you will find yourself sitting before a heaping plate of pancakes…..or waffles. (It all depends on who’s cooking. Lol)

We love experimenting with new recipes ever so often, but today I am going to share our all-time favorite wancake recipe that we found shortly after going vegan.

(Thanks to a wonderful contributor to for the inspiration for this recipe!!)
