One of my second favorite things to eat are pancakes. They have been my best freind throughout the years and now that I am vegan I have to find a good recipe that will satisfy me. This has not been a happy search. I find that certain recipes just don’t work when you sub out certain ingredients with the vegan alternative.
The latest pancake recipe that I am going to try is one that I found on pinterest, but I have made alterations to fit my personal pallet. I will keep you posted as to how it turns out. (Well I guess you will see for yourself when I display the pictures, let’s keep our fingers crossed…)
Without further ado, here is the recipe.
Vegan Oatmeal Banana Pancakes
2 cups oats
2 tablespoons of spelt flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1 teaspoon of cinnamon
1 cups vanilla almond milk ( add more to get the proper consistancy )
1 ripe banana
1.) Add the Oats, Flour, Baking Powder, Sea Salt, Cinnamon, and Almond Milk to a blender and blend until nice and smooth.
2.) Add the Banana and then blend again until smooth
3.) Use a lightly oiled skillet or griddle to cook
4.) Top with your favorite fruit or syrup. I like to use agave
I hope you enjoy these and let me know what you think in the comments section below. Also if you have alterations please share those as well.
So after doing this recipe I found that mixture turned out to be very wet and so it wasn’t the best batter for a waffle iron so I switched to pancakes to finish the batter. They turned out much nicer then the waffles even though the taste was the same. I must say they are quite good, just a little more moist then I am used to.
The banana flavor is very pronounced, it is almost like a french toast banana bread. I also discovered that not much agave was necessary because the sweetness of the banana was very effecient at providing an adequate amount of sweetness.
That is my update, what say you!
