Everything Pancakes

Posted Jan 23 2011 12:25am

30 Oct

I call these Everything Pancakes because they include my favorite flavors: chocolate,coffee, peanut butter, and banana! On the weekends I like to prepare a special breakfast  (read: waffles, pancakes, extra delicious eggs) to really indulge and relax. In the past,  I would not dare eat pancakes: you never know how much butter they use, or what is lurking in the batter. But these pancakes, I can feel good about with healthy fats, whole grains, and a slight sweetness they exceed any sweet breakfast craving. 

Everything Pancakes with Vanilla Yogurt and Agave Nectar

Vegan, Serves 2
1/2 c. whole wheat flour
1/4 c. peanut flour
3 Tbs. cocoa powder
1/2 Tbs. baking powder
1 dash salt

1 Tbs. natural peanut butter
1 Tbs. agave nectar (or honey or maple syrup)
1/2 Tbs. vanilla extract
1/2 c. non-dairy milk (or organic milk)
1/2 c. brewed coffee (or water)

1 thinly sliced banana


Wet Ingredients in the Well

1. Measure and gently mix together first group of dry ingredients.

2. Create a well in the bowl and measure wet ingredients into hole.

3. Gently stir wet ingredients, slowly combining dry outer ingredients into center.

4. Medium heat flat pan and coat with non-stick spray.

5. Measure about 2 Tbs. per pancake and place banana slices.

6. Allow pancakes to cook on first side until bubbles form and pop.

7. Flip and cook for 1-2 minutes on second side. 

Flip me!

8. Keep batches of pancakes warm in the microwave until ready to serve. 

9. Dress up pancakes as you wish. Some fun toppings: vanilla yogurt, honey, peanut butter, jam, apple butter, berry sauce…

Ready to Eat!

Wishing you a special breakfast-filled weekend!

    Macaroni N’ Cheese, The Vegan Way

    If you look at this photo and think yum, then you are right in step with me. I am salivating. Bare (or bear) with me as I wipe the drool from my lips and explain my new adoration for vegan macaroni and cheese or cheez, as it were. For years, practically since the time I first [...]

    Spanakopita – A Mediterranean Treat

    Over the years I’ve been following a Mediterranean Diet like I live on the Sea! While I don’t eat fish, I do particularly enjoy olives, fresh veggies, feta cheese, home-grown herbs and all of the cooking techniques associated with this diet. When I say diet here, I don’t mean the diet you’ve been on since [...]

    Winter Lovin Split Pea Soup

    Winter obviously is not the most wonderful time of year, as those living in the Southeast can attest. There is almost nothing worse than a drawn out snow and ice storm, except when your city can’t clean up the mess. Good thing there is but one redeeming quality about our friend Winter, and that, my [...]
