This is the ultimate recipe for vegan pancakes. I've tried many of them and, trust me, this is simply the most delicious one. Also, they are so perfectly healthy that you could eat them every single day. You don't believe me? Try them!

What if you could have pancakes for breakfast every single day? It sounds like a dream, but with this Vegan Spelt Pancakes it is reality. We are not talking about those boring oatmeal pancakes that everyone seems to be doing nowadays, at least in the "vegan community". We are talking about real, fluffy, soft, sweet pancakes.

And why can you eat those every single day? Three, simple reasons: they have no animal products, they have no oil AND they are super-nutritious and full of fiber thanks to the use of spelt flour (which is not refined, so it is a whole grain flour). Fiber, anyone? :)

Their texture is simply unbelievable. They get perfectly caramelized on the outside while they remain fluffy and spongy in the inside. They grow like "normal" pancakes, but hey... shouldn't these pancakes be the normal ones? I mean, they are lighter, more nutritious, they will not raise your cholesterol and you can eat them every day. Who would say no to this?

Everything you'll need to make these little wonders is:

  • 180g of spelt flour
  • 1 very ripe banana
  • 320 ml of unsweetened soy milk (or any other non-dairy milk, although I found they work better with soy)
  • 2 tbsp pure cane sugar (totally optional)
  • 1 pinch of sea salt
  • 1 tsp of baking powder
  • 1 tsp of cinnamon (optional)
  • 1 tsp of vanilla extract (optional)

Mix all the dry ingredients together in a bowl, then add the milk and the vanilla extract (if using) and stir a little bit. Finally, mash the banana, add it to the rest of the ingredients and stir until you have a perfectly smooth batter. Let it sit for 15 minutes and then you are ready to "fry" them on a non-stick pan with no need of adding any kind of oil. If you have a good non-stick pan it will be totally unnecessary and, trust me, the result will be much better than if you'd use oil, not just health-wise. Make sure the pan will be hot before pouring the batter, than keep the fire on medium-low throughout the cooking process. Flip when the sides of the pancake start becoming dry and the top starts to bubble.

Once cooked, you are ready to serve them with your favourite choice of fruits, nut butters, maple/date syrup and jam. My favourite? Plain and simple, with just a little bit of maple syrup and tons of fresh blueberries on top. Yum!
