Nothing beats waking up to pancakes on a cold, dark winter morning or really any morning for that matter. To shake away the winter blues I made these Banana Bliss Pancakes from Dreena Burton’s book Vive Le Vegan. I am blue no longer!
1 cup of whole wheat pastry flour
1 Tbsp of baking powder, sifted
1/4 tsp of cinnamon
1/8 tsp of freshly grated nutmeg
1/8 tsp of sea salt
1 cup + 1 Tbsp of vanilla non dairy milk (I used almond milk and added a bit more to make the pancake batter a bit runnier)
1 Tbsp of canola oil
1 medium ripe banana
In a large bowl add the whole wheat pastry flour and sift in the baking powder, add all of the other ingredients up to the almond milk and mix. In a smaller bowl combine the milk and canola oil and mix. Slowly combine these together and add in the banana. Heat a little oil on a skillet and spoon the batter on. Once the edges start to cook flip them over and cook the other side.
I put strawberry preserves over these and cut them into heart shapes since they were for my little one.
