A healthy diet is one balanced with the majority of the scale leaning towards whole grains, legumes, lots of fruits and vegetables and the occasional stack of fluffy pancakes made using this vegan pancakes recipe. Yes they are carbs with little to no nutritional value but hey every now and then the value can just be the smile they add to your face. So let’s get flipping!
To make these pancakes you’ll need the following ingredients:
- Sliced Pineapples
- Maraschino Cherries
- Maple Syrup
- Coconut Sugar
- Baking Soda
- Almond Milk
- Apple Cider Vinegar
- Coconut Oil
Prepare Pancake Batter
To begin you’ll want to heat a griddle or skillet over medium heat. Oil griddle with vegan butter or coconut oil. Then start to prepare your pancake batter by whisking together flour, baking powder, sugar and salt. Set aside dry ingredients aside.
Now it’s time to make the vegan buttermilk. Vegan buttermilk is what is going to ensure the pancakes are fluffy. To make your vegan buttermilk you’ll simply whisk together the apple cider vinegar and almond milk. Let this sit for a few minutes to activate the ingredients.
Then add coconut milk and the vegan buttermilk to the bowl with the dry ingredients. Mix until just combined. Don’t over mix the batter.
Cook the pancakes
Let’s start making and flipping our pancakes. Start by scooping pancake mixture onto hot griddle. Allow the pancakes to cook on one side for about 3 – 5 minutes or when edges of pancake begins to dry. While the first side is cooking top pancake with pineapple slice, sprinkle with a pinch of coconut sugar. Then flip when it’s time. Don’t worry! Pineapple slice should remain in the center of pancake when flipped.
Now cook the second side of the pancake for an additional 3 – 5 minutes or until golden brown. Continue this process until pancake batter is gone. Serve warm. Note: this should make roughly a full stack of pancakes ~5
