Light pancakes recipe| Vegan Recipe
We have all forgotten the importance of small gesture, the scent of naturalness and simple things. This morning, let’s take time for us… Let’s have breakfast in peace, like we used to when we were kids.
It’s Sunday and I woke up very early with the sunlight brushing my hair. Francesco is still wrapped in his dreams. Then I take a pan, some strawberries, some cream and chips of chocolate, and I add a flavor of love and feeling of empathy: these are the ingredients for a sweet awakening. I love having breakfast with fluffly and still warm pancakes, accompanied with fruits and a cascade of maple syrup or cream. A quick and easy recipe, that can really improve your day. Sometimes we underestimate the power of food and healthy tastes, which are the only ones able to spread the right daily positive vibes.
After we have reloaded with this abundant and healthy breakfast, we went for a long walk to the wonderful paths of Victoria park. Suddenly, we found ourselves surrounded by the green Nature of the park, the chirping of the birds in the background, the smell of the summer peeping out from the horizon. You don’t really need to go far away to smile. I mean, let’s not get lost in the conformity of everyday life, just be ourselves!
- Our recipe replaces the traditional ingredients with oat flour instead of the white one, vegetable milk instead of cow’s milk, ripe banana instead of white sugar and baking soda and vinegar instead of yeast!
- This recipe is great even for your kids, who can enjoy it for snack!
Ingredients for 5-6 (more or less) Pancakes:
- 130 g of oat flour;
- 230 ml of vegetable milk;
- 2 ripe bananas;
- A pinch of baking soda;
- 1 tea spoon vinegar;
- Some organic lemon zest;
- A pinch of salt.
- Pour in a bowl the oat flour, baking soda, vinegar, a pinch of salt, vegetable milk, lemon zest and stir them well together;
- Cut bananas into small chunks and add them to the mixture. With the help a mixer blend well the dough;
- Preheat a non-stick pan with a diameter of about 10 cm;
- With a spoonful take the mixture and pour in the centre of the pan, then let it spread out;
- Let it cook for few minutes. When you see little bubbles, then your pancake is ready to be turned on the other side until it has browned. Help yourself with a spatula;
- Repeat the process until the dough is finished;
- Pile up pancakes on the top of each other and stuff them as you wish.
You can use for the topping the traditional maple syrup or let your imagination run free…
I used a vegan cream (the same one I used for the tart, you can find the recipe here), some strawberries and chips of dark chocolate.
If you don’t eat all your pancakes, save them in the fridge for about 3 days, then reheat and enjoy them again!
