Perfect Pancakes

I have tried a handful of vegan pancake recipes and they have all been disasters until I decided to try this 5 Minute Vegan Pancakes recipe. I first tried it about one or two months ago. They turned out so well that I really wanted to write about them, but I decided that I better try them again to make sure it wasn’t a fluke.

It wasn’t a fluke.

There is a minimal number of ingredients. In addition, both times I have used this recipe, I didn’t have to do the usual tossing of the first pancake. You know what I’m talking about.

I tweaked the recipe a bit today and used the following ingredients:

1 cup flour (I used Bob’s Red Mill Whole Wheat Pastry Flour)
1 tbsp turbinado
2 tbsp baking powder
2 tsbp flax meal
pinch of salt
1 cup almond milk (I used soy milk the last time; either is fine)
2 tbsp vegetable oil
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1/3 c or so of dried blueberries

I mixed all the ingredients in a bowl…

…and then I cooked the pancakes. That’s all there was to it.

Yay! Fluffy vegan pancakes! As you can see, I couldn’t even pause to take a photo before digging in. Actually, I ate the first pancake as soon as it came off the pan. That’s how delicious these are. They’re even better with some maple syrup and a side of tempeh strips.

    I myself love natural honey but I love killer bee honey even more. Killer bee honey seems to have a more dark and richer flavor. Plus when you consider you are eating food that came from a deadly creature it makes your taste buds even more excited!! I think killer bee honey can easily be harvested with advanced bee keeper suits. I mean even if you look like an Apollo astronaut going out to the nest, you are getting something very rare. So this said I am not really worried too much about killer bees taking over honey bee hives. Heck, we are just in for better tasting honey. Consider it nature’s upgrade.

      The issue with killer bees is not so much that they are more hostile but rather that they are not easily used for pollination. Because they are not subdued by smoke like their European counterparts, they can’t be moved the way farmers have been using them for centuries with mobile hives. Moving a killer bee colony means the agitated insects attack and this would be fine except that attacking means the bees commit suicide when their stingers lodge in skin or fabric and subsequently eviscerate the angry creatures when they try to fly away. It’s an economic issues because $15 billion ($15,000,000,000) worth of agriculture depends on efficient pollination by bees. That aside, I’m sure the honey is lovely but I’m a maple syrup kind of girl.
