I love easy recipes; especially the ones that require only a couple of ingredients and can be made quickly. Even better is when that recipe is healthy.
As I pointed out previously, I have a deep, profound love for pancakes. So when I discover a simple and healthy pancake recipe, I get very excited.
And bonus, it’s vegan!
Vegan Raspberry Applesauce Pancakes
Adapted from food.com
- 1 cup whole wheat flour
- 2 tsp baking powder
- pinch of salt
- 1 tbsp granulated sugar or agave nectar
- 1 cup water
- 1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
- 1/4 tsp vanilla extract
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon
- 1/4-1/3 cup raspberries
Combine the dry ingredients in a small/medium sized bowl.
Once together, wet ingredients and mix until combined.
Heat up a pan on low/medium heat and coat the pan with butter, cooking spray, or as I used, coconut oil. It is all personal preference!
Pour batter onto the pan. Once on the pan, break up the raspberries into smaller pieces and sprinkle on the pancake while it is cooking.
Cook on each side for 2-4 minutes, or until lightly browned.
Once cooked add your favourite toppings and enjoy! I went plain this time around but feel free to get creative.
