Vegan Blueberry Pancakes // Oil Free

On Sunday mornings I like to treat myself to a fun breakfast. Most of the time I will enjoy a tofu scramble with some fresh tomato and avocado and maybe some toast. This week however, I just really had a taste for pancakes. Now, this doesn't happen to often. I do enjoy pancakes but I maybe really only eat them two or three times a year. 

This is a really easy multi purpose batter too. Make the batter and add whatever you like. Blueberries, bananas, masala which I have been known to do, chocolate chips or just leave them plain. My personal favorite is wild blueberry pancakes. 

For this recipe, I made the batter then split it in half. Stevie, my daughter, wanted chocolate chip pancakes so I put chocolate chips in half and blueberries in the other half.

I really recommend wild blueberries for these. For anything really. They just taste better to me. 

Let's get to the recipe. Here is what you will need. 
1 cup of unbleached all purpose flour
3 tbsp organic sugar
2 tbsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
1 1/4 cup plant milk
1 tsp vanilla
1 tbsp flax meal
3 tbsp water

If you make this the way I did, you will need 3 ounces of fresh blueberries and 1/3 cup of vegan chocolate chips.

First step, mix the flax meal and water together and let it sit for about ten minutes. It will get thick and gloppy and act as an egg replacer.

In a medium bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Whisk to combine. 

When the flax egg is ready, add it to the flour mix along with the plant milk and vanilla. Stir to combine but do not over stir. This will make tough pancakes. 

Using a small bowl, split the batter in half. There should be a little over a cup in each bowl. Add the blueberries to one half of the batter and the chocolate chips to the other half. 

Heat a non stick fry pan over medium heat for about ten minutes. Using a 1/3 cup measure, scoop and pour the batter in the pan. Once the little holes appear on top, it's time to flip. This will only take a few minutes. Cook for another 2-3 minutes and transfer to a plate. Please note, once you flip your pancake, the other side does not take as long to cook. 

This recipe made eight total pancakes which is perfect for two people. Four blueberry and four chocolate chip. Serve with real maple syrup and enjoy!!!
