No need to feel guilty about Sunday splurges when you try these. So yummy, so good for you. Full of chia, almonds, cinnamon and flax seed meal these pancakes tick all the boxes for essential fatty acids, blood sugar control, fibre and taste.
Team them up with some fresh or poached fruit and coconut yogurt for Sunday morning heaven.
Sunday Brunch Hippy Pancakes
3/4 cup plain flour
3/4 cup wholemeal plain flour
3 heaped teaspoons baking powder
2 tablespoons raw sugar
1 teaspoon salt
3 heaped tablespoons linseed (flax seed) meal
2 heaped tablespoons of almond meal or crushed almonds
1 heaped tablespoon chia seeds
1 tablespoon (yes tablespoon) cinnamon
1 cup milk – I like soy or almond for this recipe
2 teaspoons apple cider vinegar
1/2 cup water
3 tablespoons rice bran oil
i teaspoon vanilla
In a bowl mix together milk, water, vanilla, oil and apple cider vinegar and whisk like crazy for a minute or so until fluffy.
In a separate large bowl mix together flours, baking powder, sugar, salt, chia, almonds, linseed meal and cinnamon. Whisk to combine well and make sure there are no lumps.
Add wet mixture to dry and stir till well mixed. leave to stand for 10 minutes.
I use coconut oil to grease frypan for health and because it tastes great but you can use butter if you prefer.
Fry in batches turning when bubbles appear on top of pancakes.
Makes about 20 good sized pancakes.
