Easy Vegan Pancakes

Easy Vegan Pancakes
Comfort doesn't stop just because its the morning! I can't think of a better comfort food that we LOVE to indulge in, on a nice Sunday morning...or even the occasional dinner. These pancakes are a fool proof recipe that will make you remember why we love and crave that mapley carb.

Easy Vegan Pancakes

Ingredients

-1 cup Flour
-1 Tablespoon Sugar
-2 Tablespoons Baking Powder
-1/8 teaspoon Salt
-1 cup vegan milk
-2 Tablespoons oil (your choice)
-1 teaspoon pure Vanilla extract

Optional Add ins:

-1/8 teaspoon Cinnamon & Pinch Nutmeg, I always add it in, reminds me of my grandmothers
-1/2 cup Blueberries, Chocolate, OR other fruits & items, your favorites galore.

Directions

Combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt in a large bowl and mix well.

Mix in the soymilk and oil, whisk or beat together until the batter is blended together and smooth but don't over whip too long. Some lumps are okay. Let stand for 5 to 10 minutes until you see the mixture looking bubbley and frothy.

Heat a griddle or frying man over medium high heat. Drop 1/4 cup of batter one at a time onto the hot oiled griddle, you can use vegan butter or oil, 1 tablespoon. When bubbles appear on the surface of the pancake, approximately 3 minute, flip and cook the other side for another 2 to 3 minutes or until both sides are golden brown and firm. Reapply butter/oil to griddle if it gets dry. Serve with your favorite vegan butter or margarine, syrups, vegan whipped cream, or even jam. Enjoy!

INFO & Tip
*Makes 10 pancakes, less if you do bigger. You will want leftovers...so make extra batches for the freezer! Microwave for 15 to 30 seconds and you have fresh pancakes in the AM.
