spiced apple pancakes. {gluten-free & vegan}

8 September 2011

This morning I was dying for some pancakes. The rain was letting off, I was cozy in a sweater (horray J.Crew for femine old-man cardigans!), drinking my coffee & pancakes had to be made. These little treats happen to be gluten-free & vegan. Super happy.

The ingredients may or not be something you have on hand, for instance, buckwheat flour, but it is relatively inexpensive & it is full of protein, iron & vitamins. It is worth it because a little goes a long way & it will last a long time stored in your refrigerator. Overall, this recipe is flexible to adapt to what ingredients you do have-- like maybe you have bananas or berries--you can totally go for it! Either way, I am completely feeling the autumn-y vibe & these are a delicious taste of the season.

Spiced Apple Pancakes.
serves 4

11/4 cup soy or hemp milk
1 TBL rice vinegar
1 TBL olive oil
1 TBL pure maple syrup

1/2 cup buckwheat flour
1/2 cup rice flour (or all-purpose- depends if you want to go gluten-free or not)
1 tsp balking soda
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp ground ginger
a pinch of coarse sea salt

  1. Combine the wet ingredients in a bowl. In a seperate bowl, combine the wet ingredients. Do not over mix though. 
1 medium apple, sliced super thin
maple syrup for serving
  1. Heat a non-stick pan or griddle over med-high heat. Add a bit more olive oil to the pan. Ladle as many pancakes as you can in. Add the slices of apple on top of each & cook for about 1 1/2 minutes on the first side. Flip & cook for another minutes or so. Repeat until you can eat! Hey that rhymed. 
  2. Serve with maple syrup & love.

happy eatings & cheers!
