It can be really hard to go out for brunch with your friends knowing that you won’t be able to get a huge stack of pancakes, or French toast, or just about any other sweet breakfast dishes, but don’t be discouraged! Try inviting your friends over for brunch and find some recipes online to try out!
My favorite pancake recipe is from One Ingredient Chef. These pancakes will fool anyone into thinking they’re just as decadent as their non-vegan counterpart! They’re gluten-free, vegan, guilt free, and not to mention delicious! Here’s the recipe:
- 1 cup Gluten Free Flour
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1 tablespoon ground flax seed
- 2/3 cup non-dairy milk
- 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
- 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
- 1 tablespoon coconut oil
First make your flax “egg” by combining 1 tablespoon of ground flaxseed with 2.5 tablespoons of water. Whisk these together in a bowl and set aside for 5 minutes to thicken.
Now it’s on to make the batter.Mix the dry ingredients. In a separate bowl, make your “buttermilk” by combining your almond milk and vinegar. Then add the melted coconut oil, vanilla, and finally your flax egg. Whisk vigorously to combine.
Finally, pour the wet ingredients into the dry and stir together. Since there is no gluten, whisk thoroughly until no lumps remain.
The pan should be very hot to ensure maximum fluffiness. Add a drop of oil to your pan. Drop your batter into the pan and wait until you see bubbles forming on top. Then flip then and wait another 90 seconds.
Top with anything you like, from fruit or berries, to earth balance and maple syrup.
