Sometimes my kids request pancakes without veggies in them:) I tend to go overboard with my veggie obsession and squeeze veggies into everything I possibly can. So these are my compromise pancakes that they get to have. They are high in protein and grain and dairy free so they don’t have a blood sugar crash an hour after eating them! They do have 1 egg in them so they are not vegan but let me know if you try these with an egg substitute and how they turn out.
Grain free pancakes
1/2 cup finely ground cashews
1/2 cup finely ground sunflower seeds
1/2 cup tapioca flour
1 free range egg
2 tablespoons ground shredded coconut
1/4 cup coconut milk
1/4 cup oil (coconut,olive,grapeseed)
1/4 cup water
1 tablespoon maple syrup
2 teaspoons lemon juice
1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
large pinch of sea salt (or about 1/4 teaspoon)
1 teaspoon baking soda
*Grind the nut and seed flours and combine all ingredients together and mix well.
* Cook over medium heat in an greased pan for about 5 minutes on each side or until medium brown.
* Makes about 20 smaller medium sized pancakes
