I’ve been craving pancakes for about a week now. It all started last weekend when I made a breakfast crumble-cake that called for pancake mix in the ingredients. I don’t keep much of the pre-made stuff in my house these days, so I found a recipe to make my own pancake mix. The leftover mix has been sitting on my kitchen counter taunting me ever since.
This morning, I decided to remedy that situation! I used my homemade pancake mix and made some vegan-friendly pancakes. Now that they are happily in my tummy, I can declare with confidence that you do NOT need that chemical-laden crap-in-a-box to make a fluffy, tasty pancake – and my tummy is even happier knowing that no animals were harmed in the making of this breakfast.
You get way more fiber and protein with a 1/3 less calories in these pancakes versus the standard stuff from a box. Huzzah! I served mine with blueberries and a drizzle of 100% pure maple syrup. I don’t have a photo to share, but that’s mostly due to embarrassment over my pancake-flipping abilities. I could use some practice in that arena.
