Alexa woke me up this morning filled with energy, and wanted to make pancakes. We both have been trying to eat a little healthier, in order to feel good, and be able to drink as much beer as we do (haha).
Yesterday, we spent about three hours weeding, turning and tilling the soil to our garden, and finally planted some seeds. All we need is to put up a fence around it, and then we can plant our pumpkins, kale, collard greens, and tomatoes. Needless to say, after working on the community farm and gardening yesterday, I woke up sore as hell. Pancakes sounded like an excellent idea.
Friday mornings are one of the only mornings we get together, during our hectic work week. With her at the coffee shop, and me bartending and farming, it’s nice to have that one morning where you don’t have much to do besides make and enjoy breakfast.
The recipe she used we took from: http://www.oneingredientchef.com/vegan-pancakes/
and added a few things to it, to make it more our speed.
These pancakes were so good, I have to say they make your average thin, flat, and sugary pancake look and taste like Sh**
These were decadent, doughy and filling pancakes that make breakfast worth waiting a little longer for.
- 1 cup flour (all-purpose or whole wheat)
- 1 teaspoon sugar
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 cup of rolled oats
- 1 tablespoon ground flax seed
- 1 cup + 1 tablespoon non-dairy milk
- 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
- 1 tablespoon coconut oil
- five sliced strawberries or fruit of your choice
We followed the recipe from one ingredient chef and added oats as well as strawberries that we just freshly picked. The results were marvelous!
- Make the flax egg by mixing the 1 tablespoon of flax seed (we used flax/chia blend because that’s what we had) with 2.5 tablespoons of water.
2. Mix the dry ingredients together, and then mix the almond milk and apple cider vinegar together. Once this is mixed, add the melted coconut oil, and flax egg last. As the recipe states carefully mix the ingredients together and slowly add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients. Be careful not to over stir.
3. Take a smaller ladle and ladle your batter into an already hot pan. Let sit for 2 minutes, and then flip. Repeat as many times as you wish. Add warmed syrup, more fruit, and maybe a dollop of earth balance butter. DELISH!
