Chocolate Sourdough Crumpets

Chocolate Sourdough Crumpets

We know, we know - this isn't a chai recipe! But our friends at Loving Earth make a delicious drinking chocolate that we love to use (Chai Hot Chocolate, anyone?) so we couldn't help but share!

Think Red Velvet Cake, but in crumpet form (and without the food colouring). It's super dense, delicious, inherently plant-based, and what we want for breakfast today topped with this scrumptious Prana Chai syrup!

  • 230g of sourdough discard (gluten-free sourdough is possible)
  • 1 tsp of coconut sugar
  • 2 pinches salt
  • 1/2 tsp bi-carb soda
  • 2-3 tsp of Loving Earth Dark Drinking Chocolate


Combine all ingredients together in a medium-size bowl. Heat a frying pan and grease well with coconut oil. Using metal or silicone rings, pour two-tablespoons of the crumpet batter onto the hot frying pan. Cook on a low to medium heat for 4 minutes until bubbles begin to form. Remove the ring and flip and cook for another 2-3 minutes. Continue with the rest of the batter. Top with your favourite spread and eat!
