200ml almond or oat milk

2 tablespoons maple syrup

1 teaspoon cinnamon

For the chocolate sauce - 

4 tablespoons cacao or cocoa powder

1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

150ml boiling water

2-3 tablespoons maple syrup

For the cherries - 

200g cherries (fresh or frozen)

2 tablespoons maple syrup or stevia

For the chocolate balls -

100g dates, soaked in boiling water for 10 minutes

100g desiccated coconut

3 tablespoons cacao or cocoa powder

1 tablespoon coconut oil, melted

4 tablespoons cacao nibs

Get making! 

1) First make the chocolate balls: Drain the dates, place everything apart from the in a blender or food processor and whizz up until you have a slightly sticky mixture. Stir in the cacao nibs then divide into about 12 small balls and chill in the fridge to firm.

2) Next place the cherries in a pan with 1 tablespoon water and the maple syrup/stevia. Bring to the boil and simmer for 10 minutes until soft and a light syrup has formed. Set aside.

3) Now make up the pancake mix according to the instructions, adding the maple syrup and cinnamon. Heat some coconut oil in a pan and cook small pancakes in batches.

4) Meanwhile whisk together the chocolate sauce ingredients, adding a little extra water or almond milk to form a sauce.

5) Plate up the pancakes, pour some chocolate sauce over and arrange some cherries and their syrup plus a few chocolate balls on top. Enjoy!
