This recipe for vegan pancakes (Rainbow Plant Life) is super-easy to make, and creates a lovely American-style breakfast, to make a change from refined breakfast cereals. This recipe uses more baking powder than average to make light fluffy pancakes, so choose a good organic version (free from aluminium) like Doves Farm.
Keep fresh dough away from pets, it can expand in the stomach, along with unsafe ingredients (citrus, nutmeg, chocolate). Read more on food safety for people & pets.
The recipe starts with ‘vegan buttermilk’ (curdling lemon juice into plant milk). Then add other pancake ingredients (flour, baking powder, salt and sugar). Flavoured with vanilla, they are bound with vegan butter (we like Naturli as it’s free from palm oil).
Be sure not to overmix the batter, then let it rest to keep the air bubbles, before cooking your pancakes in a preheated pan. Serve with fresh fruits, vegan cream and maple syrup. Or go totally USA, serve with roast spuds and vegan bacon.
