Do you know who makes the best pancakes?
Is it your mom? Perhaps a restaurant in your hometown? Maybe you are so confident in your own pancake ability that you don’t even question it….
There was a little restaurant in the town over from where I grew up that made pancakes that were about as big as my head. We would go every once in a while after church and wait for hours just for some of those serious pancakes. They were the best.
When I first tried making my own I could never quite get the flip down. It takes some skill and patience, both of which I did (and do) not have.
I never gave up though. Today I would like to consider myself a bit of a pancake connoisseur.
Sadly, you can’t get good vegan pancakes at any of the breakfast joints in my world. What is a chubby vegan to do? Make your own!
Feast your eyes on these blueberry wonders with an absolutely perfect recipe from the Betty Crocker loving Meet the Shannons. Theirs were chocolate chip / banana, which may be one of the best flavor combinations this side of chocolate and peanut butter. I only had blueberries and they were still perfection. Now, if I could only perfect that damn flip!
Recipe after the jump…
Source: Meet the Shannons
1/2 Cup Whole Wheat Flour
1/2 Cup All-Purpose Flour
3/4 Cup Soy Milk
1 Tablespoon Sugar
2 Tablespoons Olive or Hazelnut Oil
3 Teaspoons Baking Powder
1/4 Teaspoon Salt
½ - 1 C. Blueberries (fresh or frozen)
Olive Oil Cooking Spray
In a mixing bowl, blend all your ingredients blueberries for 2 minutes. You want the mix to be completely blended and without any clumps. Then mix your blueberries in with a large spoon until they are evenly mixed in. Let the batter rest for a few minutes.
Heat a heavy bottom skillet or griddle pan to medium heat. Once your skillet is hot, spray with Cooking Spray. Use a ¼ measuring cup to spoon pancakes onto your pan.
It will start to cook immediately so try to make them the desired size and shape. Let your pancake cook until it begins to bubble slightly on the top and the edges begin to look puffed and dry. Then flip the Pancake over and cook the other side. Flip a few more times until the pancake is a nice golden brown.
Serve with your favorite REAL maple syrup or berries.
Chubby Vegan Notes
- If you don’t like blueberries you can use whatever you want. Examples include banana, chocolate chip, apples / cinnamon, raspberries, or whatever else you want to throw in!
- I topped mine with an all-natural maple syrup. If I found out you used one of those Mrs. Crappy-worth bottles I am coming to your house and beating you with it.
- That big glob of yum is Earth Balance… Syrup, butter, pancakes… drool
- A nice big glass of super cold orange juice would make this utterly perfect. mmm
