Vegan Gluten Free Pancakes

IMG_3370

Happy Sunday!

Most Canadians will agree that a good homemade pancake is the measure of a confident cook. This week, I bring to you a vegan version!

*Makes 3-4 large pancakes or 6-8 little ones IMG_3368

You will need:

  • 1 cup gluten free flour (buckwheat or your own flour mix)
  • 1 tbsp organic cane sugar
  • 2 tbsp baking powder
  • 1/8 tsp salt ** be careful with this one!
  • 1 cup soy milk or almond milk
  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil (I use coconut oil) + extra for the pan

IMG_3369Method:

  1. Preheat your pan on medium heat.
  2. Gather your ingredients and mix together the dry ingredients in a large bowl.
  3. Add the soy milk and coconut oil the bowl and mix together well. Mix until all the lumps are gone. If you’re feeling lazy you could pop this in the blender.
  4. Now add a little oil to the pan and pour some of the batter in.
  5. Unlike other batters, this won’t release a lot of bubbles, so you will need to watch for the edges to turn golden. When they do, flip them over.
  6. Repeat until all the batter is gone. Serve with fresh fruit and maple syrup or honey. Enjoy!IMG_3371
