Hot Chocolate Vegan Buckwheat Pancakes

I combined almond milk, cocoa powder and brown sugar in a saucepan.

I cooked it on the stove until it was nicely warmed but not boiling. Turned off the flame and stirred in vanilla extract.

I combined buckwheat flour, baking powder and salt. Mixed it well and kept it aside.

I combined hot chocolate, chocolate chips and soaked flaxseed meal into the flour mixture and made a thick batter out of it.

I poured in some maple syrup and whipped up the batter once more.

I warmed up a griddle/frying pan and poured about ¼ cup of the batter on it and cooked for few minutes until bubbles formed.
