can i have some more sir?

First things first: you need to read my title with a british accent as if you are Oliver Twist. Thanks.

I woke up with one thing on my mind this morning: pancakes.

I am usually not one to make pancakes – I love my oatmeal. However, yesterday Angela had what looked like the best idea in the entire world, so I was inspired.

I took her spelt pancakes recipe and totally changed it up (sorry Angela – just remember, you were my inspiration!!!) . Actually, it’s not even the same recipe anymore! These bad boys are vegan and gluten-free!

Blueberry Oatmeal Flax Pancakes:

  • 1/4 cup gluten free flour
  • 1/4 cup gluten free oatmeal
  • 2 tbsp. ground flax seeds
  • 2 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1/3 tsp. baking soda (you can use 1 tsp. baking powder – I can’t due to a corn intolerance)
  • 1/4 cup almond milk (or milk of choice)
  • ungodly amounts of blueberries
  1. Mix the dry ingredients together and mix the milk in – it should be semi-runny.
  2. Spray a skillet or griddle with nonstick spray (I use olive oil in a spray bottle) and heat to medium to medium high heat.
  3. Drop three equal sized portions of the mixture onto your skillet. Wait until the pancakes start to bubble and flip with a spatula. Heat on the other side as well.

see? UNGODLY amounts of blueberries

flipped and ready for me to eat!

I topped these with melted banana and peanut butter sauce (also inspired by Angela – thanks girl!). All I did was smash up 1/2 a naner, add 1 tbsp peanut butter, and nuke it in the microwave for 45 seconds. I mixed it all up and spooned it over my breakfast!

and more blueberries and cinnamon for good measure :)


Part of me felt like a failure when I couldn’t finish these, but part of me felt like a champion for making the best pancakes I have ever eaten in my entire life.

until next time mr. pancake…

 

Jenny and I had the same thinking this morning with the pancakes – she had raspberry. She asked the same question I am going to ask…
What is your favorite kind of pancake? What do you like to top your pancakes with?
