    Apple pancakes


    1. In a blender, combine the oats, applesauce, vegetable milk, baking powder, matcha and salt. Mix on high speed until you get a smooth texture.

    2. If desired, stir in the grated apple.

    3. In a small bowl, combine the cinnamon and maple flakes. Reserve.

    4. Preheat a skillet over medium heat.

    5. Melt about 1 tsp. of vegetable margarine in the hot pan. Pour about ¼ cup of mixture per pancake. Cook 3-4 minutes or until the rim peels off easily. Sprinkle about 1 tsp of cinnamon sugar on each pancake and turn with a spatula. Continue cooking for 30 seconds, being careful not to burn the sugar. If the pancake is not quite done, turn to finish cooking on the sugar-free side. Repeat for each pancake.

    6. Serve, garnished with vegan yogurt, maple syrup, apple slices and a drizzle of almond butter.


    Garnish ideas :

    1. Whipped coconut cream or coconut yogurt

    2. Maple syrup

    3. Fresh apples

    4. Cinnamon sugar

    5. Granulated sugar

    6. Pecans

    7. Almond butter

    8. Granola


    Some tips for successful pancakes :

    • The pan should be perfectly hot. If a large amount of smoke is coming from the pan, lower the heat during cooking. If the first pancakes do not brown, increase the temperature a little.

    • The perfect time to turn your pancakes is when the edges feel solid, bubbles form on the surface, and they peel off easily.

    • If the pancake mix becomes too thick, add a little liquid, but gradually. Runny pancake batter will not bake all the way to the center.
