About twice a year I get up and make vegan pancakes. I’ve never had much of a sweet tooth, and Doriyan is a diabetic, so we rarely eat them. However, Raf and I got a sweet deal on fresh strawberries and blueberries at the farmer’s market the other day, and so it made sense to make them this morning. When I make vegan pancakes I usually do it on a Sunday, because I put the left overs in freezer bags, and I am off breakfast duty on Monday or Tuesday (whichever day I choose). The recipe yields about 8 light, fluffy, vegan pancakes.

What You Will Need To Make Vegan Pancakes:

blueberries (optional)
strawberries (optional)
1 1/4 cup all-purpose unbleached flour
1 1/4 cup of water
2 teaspoons of aluminum free baking powder
2 tablespoons of organic cane sugar
oil for the skillet (I used peanut oil)

How To Make Vegan Pancakes:

If you don’t have any blueberries or strawberries, you can skip the steps that require adding the fruit and make regular pancakes as well.  I made four variations of pancakes; I was feeling creative. My family was excited about having the variety between plain, blueberry, strawberry, and blueberry-strawberry mixed vegan pancakes.

Mix flour, baking powder, and sugar into a large bowl. Once you have mixed them well add the water. Mix until it becomes a batter

Heat the oil in a skillet. Use medium heat.

Place batter into a heated skillet with a spoon.

Add fruit as you wait for the bubbles to start forming in each pancake. By adding the fruit at the bottom, you can see which is which.

Once the bubbles start forming flip the pancake and cook the other side. I cook them until both sides are light and brown. The guys like the edges a little crispy.


Are you wondering: if I am 85% raw what did I eat for breakfast this morning? I kept it simple and had an avocado and grape salad. Check it out on Instagram.
