Chocolate pancakes with Chocodamia Preparations

  • Stir in the egg yolks, milk, ricotta cheese and melted butter until well combined.
  • Whisk the remaining egg whites until they form stiff peaks.
  • Then, fold through the mix with the chocolate chunks.
  • Heat a small amount of coconut oil in a pan and drop in heaped tablespoons of batter.
  • Cook until bubbles start to appear on top, about 1 minute until golden.
  • Flip them over and cook for another minute.
  • Keep the cooked pancakes warm on a large covered plate.
  • Repeat with the remaining mixture, brushing the pan with more oil in between batches.

Caramelize bananas

Melt the butter in a pan over a medium-low heat and add sugar. Stir to dissolve, and then increase the heat. When it starts to caramelize, add the bananas and stir gently for 8-10 minutes until they start to color and caramelize. Remove from heat and set aside.

To serve, stack 3 pancakes on a plate, top with sliced bananas.

Drizzle with warm chocolate sauce and Chocodamia.
