Blueberry Banana Mango Spelt ‘Buttermilk’ Oatmeal Pancakes
My husband has been wanting pancakes for weeks now, so I decided to surprise him this Saturday morning with some pancake goodness. He was in heaven and ate all of them! I used a mixture of spelled and whole wheat flour and quick oats as the base. This recipe is vegan-friendly and packed with nutrition.
Blueberry Banana Mango Spelt ‘Buttermilk’ Oatmeal PancakesIngredients:
1/2 cup soy milk (or any type of milk)
slice of lemon
1/4 cup whole wheat flour
1/4 cup spelt flour
1/4 cup quick oats
1 tbsp ground flaxseeds (or chia seeds)
3 tbsp water
dash pure vanilla extract
1/2 tsp baking powder
pinch sea salt
In a small bowl, combine the ground flax or chia seed with the water.
Combine the flours, oats, cinnamon, baking powder and salt. Mix well.
In another bowl or measuring cup, mix the soy milk with a squeeze of lemon to create the “buttermilk”. Add the flax or chia egg and vanilla. Mix together.
Pour the liquids into the dry ingredients and stir. Add the blueberries. If a batter is too thick (most probably will be), start adding in some water a bit at a time until you have a slightly runny batter. While you wait for your pan to heat up, it will thicken slightly.
Heat a pan on med-high to high temperature. Once hot (sprinkle some water and if it bubbles the pan is ready), pour the batter into whatever size pancakes you’d like. I added in the banana once they were on the pan.
Enjoy with your favorite syrup, jam, fresh fruit or anything you can think of!
