The Healthy and Nutritious Pancakes (vegan)

Sunday morning pancakes have become a tradition, and I’ve been trying to make them as healthy, soft and light as possible. This recipe is totally guilt-free, as long as you go easy on the jam and the syrup. Have them with some fresh fruits and a drizzle of honey;  and if you prefer savoury toppings, why not some avocado.

Mind you that this recipe is vegan but not gluten free as I used spelt flour.

Ingredients (for about 3 pancakes)

  • Spelt flour or oat flour, 60g
  • Non-dairy milk, 120ml (I used unsweetened almond milk)
  • Chia seeds, 1 full teaspoon
  • Baking powder, 1 full teaspoon 
  • Pinch of salt

  • No packaging (no plastic, no container, etc.)
  • Money savings
  • Better for your waistline (again, you in charge!)
