After taking a trip to the berry farm the other day, I ended up with a ton of berries. I’ve been meaning to do a vegan pancake recipe for quite some time now, but have been waiting for the right ingredients to come to me. When I realized I had too many blackberries to even begin to know what to do with, it was clear – blackberry pancakes! With warming cinnamon and cardamon, these blackberry pancakes are absolutely devine. I promise you that your house will smell 100% decadent and delicious after making these sweet little pancake babies!
Total time: 20 minutes
Recipes makes: approx. 8 pancakes
- 1-1/4 cup whole-wheat flour (or all-purpose flour)
- 1/4 tsp. sea salt
- 1/2 tsp. cardamon
- 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
- 1 tsp. baking powder
- 1-1/4 cup vanilla almond milk (or other dairy-free alternative)
- 2 tbl. maple syrup
- 2 tbl. melted coconut oil
- 1 tsp. pure vanilla extract
- 1/2 heaping cup fresh blackberries
1. In a medium sized mixing bowl, whisk together your dry ingredients: flour, sea salt, cardamon, cinnamon and baking powder. Once complete, set aside.
2. In a separate bowl, beat together your wet ingredients: dairy-free milk, maple syrup, coconut oil and vanilla extract. You don’t necessarily need a mixer or food processor to do this, it can be done by hand.
3. You’re now ready to combine your dry ingredients in with your wet ingredients. Whisk together well.
4. In a separate small bowl, gently mash your blackberries with a fork. You don’t want to overdo this, just enough so that they are somewhat broken apart.
5. Heat a medium to large skillet with a good amount of coconut oil (enough so that your pancakes will not stick to the bottom of your pan). Once the oil begins to bubble you can scoop approximately 1/3 cup of pancake batter into your pan for each pancake. Cook your pancakes on each side for approximately 4 minutes, or until golden brown.
Remember to add more coconut oil to your pan if you’re adding more pancakes!
6. Once finished, you can top with any of your favourite ingredients, such as: maple or a fruit syrup, carob chips, bananas or fresh berries. I had raspberry syrup on hand for mine, and it paired perfectly with my blackberry pancakes!
