So I love pancakes. I mean really love them. Anytime I go out to a restaurant and I see pancakes on the menu, I will order them. Regardless of the time of day. They are good any time of the day.
So when I saw this recipe for oatmeal pancakes I knew I had to try it! I made a few small changes to the original recipe to veganize it.
Adapted from Pbfingers.com
- 1/2 cup + 1/3 cup whole wheat or spelt flour
- 1 tbsp sugar
- 1 tsp baking soda
- pinch of salt
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon
- 1 1/2 tbsp melted vegan butter
- 3/4 cup almond milk (soy milk works)
- 1/3 cup oatmeal, cooked
- 1/4 cup raw oats
- 1 tbsp honey or agave nectar
- 1 “flax egg” (1 tbsp ground flax + 3 tbsp water= 1 flax egg)
Mix the dry ingredients together in a large bowl.
In a small/medium bowl, mix the butter, milk, cooked oats, raw oats, honey/agave and flax egg together until combined.
Then add the wet ingredients with the dry ones and stir until combined.
Pour small/medium sized pancakes onto a light/medium heated pan (each stovetop heat ranges, so do what works best for you.) You can use butter to coat the pan (I used coconut oil with success).
When cooking on the pan, I added chocolate chips on the pancakes. You can omit this if you wish.
Cook for 3-4 minutes on each side or until browned.
Top with your favourite pancake toppings.
Mine happened to include berries and bananas 🙂
