Quick and easy pancakes that the kids can make with you. We always make pancakes and today we decided to make a special pancake breakfast for International Day of Happiness. However, once we had added all the ingredients to the bowl we realised that we had no eggs. Well today, we found out that you can make a pancake without breaking eggs!
Here is our recipe for quick and easy vegan, gluten free pancakes. We are not steadfast in our recipes and at times alter to fit what we have in our pantry. Today we used buckwheat flour but another day it could be spelt. These pancakes would work equally well with wheat flour also. We try to eat a mainly gluten free, plant power, sugar reduced diet and so rarely cook with cows milk or cane sugar. This recipe would work with both cow’s milk or cane sugar.
Recipe for 12 small pancakes
1 cup of buckwheat flour and would work equally well with spelt flour or wheat flour.
1/3 cup of rice malt syrup, rapadura or cane sugar
1 tablespoon of aluminum free baking powder
1 cup of almond or oat milk
2 tablespoons of olive oil
Gather ingredients. Set a non-stick frying pan on stove top and heat on medium with a little oil.
Combine the dry ingredients and mix.
Add the milk and oil and whisk – if the batter is too dry add a dash more milk.
Using a tablespoon add 4 dollops to the pan and smooth with a spatula.
Wait for bubbles to appear and flip carefully once the edges curl slightly and look done. These pancakes are not as robust as the regular variety.
Repeat until batter is used up.
We always serve our pancakes with fresh fruit and a raspberry couli.
To make the couli fill a large cup with frozen berries and add a tablespoon of water and a tablespoon of malt syrup or rapadura.
Put in the microwave on high for 2 minutes. Check after 1 minute and repeat.
Blend the berries until you have a puree and pour into to a jug to serve.
Enjoy a healthy breakfast together before the busyness of life kicks in.
Hope you have a happy day this happiness day xxx
