Mother's Day Brunch Pancakes

Want to surprise mom this mother's day? Homemade brunch is always a nice treat especially when it's made with love for mom!  Here's a recipe to try out on mom, I made these for my boyfriend a while back, vegan Apple Spice Pancakes from Jae Steele's book Ripe from Around Here (p.101).

Apple Spice Pancakes

1.5 cups spelt flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
1/2 tsp sea salt
1 medium organic apple, grated (about 1 cup) plus 1.5 tsp fresh lemon juice
1 cup almond milk
1/2 cup organic unsweetened applesauce
1/4 cup liquid sweetener like agave nectar or maple syrup
1 tbsp sunflower oil + more for cooking

Whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, nutmeg, and salt.  Whisk in grated apple coating well and try to avoid clumping.  Add the milk, applesauce, sweetener, and oil and mix well.

Portion the batter on a hot and lightly oiled skillet and cook on medium to medium-high for about 4 minutes then flip over and cook for another 2-3 minutes, or until golden brown.

Serve with maple syrup or your favourite fruit slices.


Happy Mothers Day!

I'm off to the Mandarin with the fam, the great taste of non-authentic Chinese food. It's the only place my grandparents will go now! I wonder what it is about Portuguese people the the Americanized buffet experience.

Those pancakes look gooood.

That's too funny and I know what you mean, and what is it with Chinese buffet specifically!? Seems that was the only place my folks would go for years also lol!

Have a great one :)
