This has become my 'go-to' Pancake recipe. It's from Tanya Barnard and Sarah Kramer's "How it All Vegan" cookbook, one of the earliest vegan cookbooks in what has become a huge collection!
I've made some changes to the recipe to add more fiber and flavor. It's quick, easy, and so tasty. Enjoy!
This recipe makes about 6 pancakes. Double for more!
- 1 cup sprouted organic whole wheat flour (or use 1/2 whole wheat flour and 1/2 another kind of flour: oat, spelt, etc.)
- 2 tsps baking powder
- 1 banana, mashed well
- 2 tsps ground flax
- 1/4 tsp cinnamon
- 1/8 tsp cardamom
- orange zest from one orange
- 1 T sweetener (can use date sugar or turbinado or even agave)
- 1 1/4 cups non-dairy milk
ln large bowl sift the flour and baking powder together. Whisk in the cinnamon, cardamom, and orange zest.
In another smaller bowl, mash the banana well with 1/4 cup of non-dairy milk. Mix till there are no lumps.
Then add the banana mixture, sweetener, and remaining 1 cup of non-dairy milk to the dry mix, and stir till 'just mixed'.
Cook pancakes on hot non-stick griddle. Garnish with fresh berries and/or 'real' maple syrup. (I also like to gently fold in some frozen wild blueberries to my batter before cooking.)
