Tom makes beautiful plant-based blueberry pancakes once in awhile on a Saturday morning. I am truly thankful for his cooking skills. These pancakes are made from whole foods – light and sooo tasty with an added benefit of being nutritious. Top with blueberries or your favorite fruit and nuts. Add a small amount of maple syrup, however not quite as much as pictured in my iconic pancake image…haha!
Are you getting hungry yet! Oh one more thing, Tom makes steamed yellow potatoes and onions to go along with the pancakes.
What a Saturday morning treat!
BASIC PANCAKE RECIPE
These pancakes will get your day off to a good start!
1/2 cup (less 3 tablespoons) white whole wheat flour
1/2 cup whole wheat pastry flour
3 tablespoons arrowroot
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup almond milk
1 whole banana preferably ripe, mash
1 tablespoon flax seed meal
1/4 cup aqua faba (garbanzo beans brine)
2 tablespoons raisins
Optional: Add nuts and/or fruit to the batter or use as toppings
In a medium bowl, mash the banana with a fork, then add all other ingredients. Mix these ingredients until thoroughly combined, do not over mix. Let the batter settle for about 10 minutes. Heat a non-stick skillet on medium-high until droplets of water bounce on the skillet surface. Add batter to hot skillet and when bubbles appear on top of the batter, flip the pancake over to complete cooking. About 60 seconds per pancake.
