🥞 Vegan Chocolate Chip Pancakes 🥞 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
》You guys chose a sweet recipe today! Last week, @thealiceavery brought to my attention that a certain foodie said it was sad that people were baking pancakes in quarantine instead of healthy food. Well, this is my #protestpannenkoek! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
》Eat what you want, even if it's 'unhealthy' pancakes, muffins, cake,...and don't feel bad about it! There's already enough shaming going around in diet culture, so screw that and make these (healthy!) #vegan fluffy pancakes! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
》Ingredients: ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
• 135g all-purpose flour (I used almond flour)
• 45g chocolate chips
• 15g baking powder
• 250ml warm almond milk (any non-dairy milk)
• 20g stevia (or sugar)
• 15ml melted coconut oil⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
》Directions: ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
- Preheat a nonstick frying pan over medium heat. Lightly oil pan if necessary,
- Mix together flour and the baking powder. - Stir in the chocolate chips.
- Heat the almond milk in the microwave until just warm (not hot.) - Add the melted coconut and stevia/sugar and mix well.
- Add the almond milk mixture to the dry ingredients. Use a fork to mix well, until there are no lumps in the batter. Do not overmix.
- Spoon 1/4 of the batter into your preheated pan. Cook the first side for about 3-4 minutes – until the edges appear dry and cooked and some bubbles have formed.
- Flip and cook for another 3-4 minutes.
Store the cooked pancakes in a single layer on the racks in your warm oven – this will keep them warm but not soggy. Makes about 6-7 pancakes.
- Top off with whatever you want! I took some blueberries, banana and melted peanut butter. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
》Enjoy these fluffy, delicious treats for breakfast, lunch, dinner or whenever! Easy, healthy and oh so good 🤤 Who's gonna make some #protestpannenkoeken? 👇🏻 #ecossentials ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

》It's that day of the week again! (Re)introducing today: @thegoodroll recycled toilet paper 🧻 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
》You probably came across this brand already, with their signature wrapping paper in fun prints! But do you know why so many people are a fan of their range? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
》@thegoodroll only uses 100% recycled paper fibres for their toilet paper that comes from post-consumer waste such as flyers & books! Everything is packed #plasticfree.

• The Holy Trinity • ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
》I can't believe just how many of you have swapped to a safety razor now and it makes me SO happy 'cause it's one of my favourite #plasticfree swaps to this day! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
》You can now find FIVE different colors/designs on the shop! One for everyone, making your skin smooth & your bathroom slick! Saves you money and lasts a lifetime 💸 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
》My top tips: ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
•• Don't apply force when shaving - These are heavier than a normal razor so you really just need the lightest touch
•• Angle correctly - This will take some getting used to but when you get it right, you'll have the smoothest shave ever!
•• Use a good shaving soap - This will stop any shaving rash as you need to give a good barrier for the blade to glide! You can find one on the shop.
•• Start with your legs - When you're super confident and no longer scared, move onto EVERYWHERE ELSE! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
🪒 This is a great way to reduce #plasticwaste in your bathroom! And let's be honest, they look freaking beautiful. Silver Chrome is the new color added to the shop besides the one with bamboo, the pastel razor & the black/rosé razors! Who's a happy user? Let me know below why 👇🏻 #ecossentials ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

• #plasticfree shopping: struggles & reality ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
》The title of my first written blog! When I asked what your #sustainable living struggles were, a lot of you answered #plasticfree grocery shopping & finding unpackaged #vegan or #veggie alternatives. I really feel that one, so I decided to write a structured article on the topic to help you guys out! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
》Depending on where you live, it can be really frustrating having to buy your groceries in plastic and/or packaging when you’re trying to avoid it. But don't despair! Zero waste isn't all or nothing. It doesn't hinge on perfection. It hinges on everyone giving it their best! Do what you can, where you can, in your circumstances. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
》If you live in an area that doesn’t have many grocery stores, and certainly doesn’t have a health foods store with a bulk section, this article is for you! I’ve compiled a guide for shopping zero waste at a regular grocery store & I explain on which content and packaging you should focus. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
》It’s important to remember that shopping in bulk is not the only sustainable thing you can do. If you’re new to trying to live sustainably, start small! I started with reusable bags & drinking bottles, then went to other reusables and look at me now! Every step we make is important to the larger picture and change starts with us! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

• Swap Monday • ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
》A day late, but every day counts as a #swap day! Introducing: #vegan skincare from @wearelani. Hand-made in Nottingham, England, the entire Lani range is produced in small batches every couple of weeks to maximize freshness. I'm so happy to be able to stock them 'cause Viola is the most kind, hard working person! She made everything extra #plasticfree for me, how great is that?! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
🌸 Lani stands for natural, vegan, cruelty-free skin & hair care that doesn't cost the earth. They've gained a cult status amongst the vegan community as a brand that isn't afraid to speak out. The brand is also multi-award winning and all the products are packaged into glass bottles and jars, are made with high quality, food-grade ingredients and are always free of parabens, synthetic fragrances, silicones, mineral oils and animal derived ingredients - that sure ticks of all the boxes for me! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
》Now, about the products! First of all, they all smell freaking AMAZING - I'm so excited every day to use them and smell like a tropical cocktail! Secondly, all their products do the job: my skin feels better, my compexion glows more and it isn't intoxicated with bad ingredients. And you guys think the same after using it! That's why I decided to stock the entire range. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
✌🏻 From face serums, to masks, to cleansers & hair care - Lani offers something for everyone! It may look like a bit more of an investment, but the products last longer & are better for you and the planet! What's more to like? Tap to discover the range 🌱 #ecossentials

COVID-19 UPDATE​

We are still fully operating and dispatching your orders
with a one-woman team now in the warehouse!

I (Moenia) will be working on my own dispatching
all of your orders as I come into no extra contact with any other humans.
I wear gloves & use sanitizer

Post services are experiencing a lot of delays and inconveniences,
so your order will take a bit longer to reach you (around 2-6 working days).
Since customer service is our biggest value, we package & ship every order
the same day so there are no extra delays on our side

Postmen will not have any contact with you when delivering parcels as standard

We thank you all for understanding and supporting small & local businesses like Ecossentials!
Stay healthy everyone!
