Vegan Wholegrain Spelt Pancakes

VEGAN WHOLEGRAIN SPELT PANCAKES (GLUTEN FREE)

 

Spelt Cinnamon pancakes with berries

 

As you may know by now, along my journey of eating more healthily and pretty much 80% following a ‘Macrobiotic’ way of eating (primarily means eating wholegrain, more vegetables, seaveg, miso, fermented veg, seasonal, organic), I have been craving pancakes.

As I am now staying away from bread and all things ‘processed’ flours, I came across this wonderful recipe from a friend of mine who started along their ‘macrobiotic’ journey many years ago and after trying it out for myself, with a few reservations, purely because of what I thought it would come out like (texture and colour), I loved it and now want to share it with you.

So enjoy, experiment for yourselves with different 1) sugars, 2) toppings and let me know how you get on 🙂

4 Servings

Ingredients

2 cups of spelt flour (organic)
2 cups of still filtered water
1/2 cup of grain/nut milk (I use Almond milk)
1 tbsp baking powder
1 tbsp sugar (I use pure Stevia or maple syrup if you don’t have Stevia works well)
1 tsp vanilla essence
1/2 tsp of cinnamon (optional but tasty)
pinch of salt
4 tbsp sunflower oil

Instructions

  1. Put all the ingredients in a bowl and mix together with a hand held mixing spoon until you have a smooth mixture
  2. In a small frying pan, spray some oil (I use FryLight Sunflower oil) and once the pan is hot, add a scoop of the pancake batter.  Leave until you see the batter starting to bubble (takes a good 2/3 minutes) before trying to turn over
  3. Once you have turned the pancake over, cook for a further 2 minutes and then turn out onto a plate and repeat the process until the batter is finished
  4. Serve with your choice of topping(s)

Toppings:
Savoury – Tofu scramble, sautéed mushrooms, sauteed/steamed spinach, sauteed cherry tomatoes
Sweet:  Berries, banana, maple syrup, peanut butter, banana-cream, lemon juice & coconut sugar

Optional flours:  buckwheat, brown rice flour
