“Buttermilk” Vegan Pancakes

My go to pancake recipe. You can use spelt flour, plain or wholemeal, straight up plain flour or wholemeal, or a gluten free alternative.

No eggs, no milk, no dairy at all and they’re light and fluffy. Most importantly they flip with ease. Key when making pancakes because I ain’t got time for messy pancakes.

I topped mine with a little bit of peanut butter “frosting”. Just smooth rich roast peanut butter mixed with some maple syrup and laced them with chocolate chips. Blueberries would be my second favourite option or perhaps actual chunks of banana!

I’m sitting here typing realising that the vast majority don’t care about much more than the recipe…plus the sun has just come out so I figure I should go make the most of it.

Hit me up with any questions or comments on Instagram and you can of course go check out the short just over 1 minute IGTV I created for these as well.
