My friend Ruby Red Vegan has been tempting me for too many weeks now with mouth-watering pictures of vegan pancakes– blueberry pancakes, chocolate chip pancakes, banana pancakes, etc. etc. etc.
Every time I’d finally succeed in getting pancakes off my mind, there’d be Ruby Red with another enticing pancake post.
Finally, I decided that the only remedy would be to take part in the pancake-making, myself. So that’s exactly what I did!
I’m not going to post a recipe for these pancakes, as they are just your everyday-plain-old whole-wheat pancakes (although this doesn’t mean they weren’t wonderfully delicious). But what I will leave you with is my favorite pancake recipe of all-time! I haven’t made these in a while, but they’re always very well-received each time I do make them.
Katie’s Apple Raisin Pancakes
Makes eight pancakes
3/4 cup whole wheat flour
1/8 cup oats
2 tablespoons oat bran
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 tespoon salt
1/4 cup raisins
1/2 cup apple, chopped
1 cup apple juice or water (I use water)
Combine the first six dry ingredients, then add the raisins and apple. Gently stir in the juice or water until the dry ingredients are completely moistened. Pour the batter by 1/4-cupfuls onto a nonstick skillet or griddle. Cook until the bottoms are brown and a spatula slips easily underneath. Turn and brown the other sides. Have a nice day :).
