Holiday Nog Pancakes (vegan!)
Saturday mornings are all about pancakes. It's rare that I don't make pancakes on the weekends. There's just something so comforting about them. I'll recap my Saturday morning which started at 6:30AM when Sage got up (well, you could say it started at 3AM, but luckily he went back to sleep by 4 o'clock and mama got a few more hours of sleep!).
This was my view from breakfast. Lincoln wanted my breakfast and Sage was no longer amused. Basically he was ready for his 8AM nap which happened just after I scarfed down those pancakes and chugged my kukicha tea.
These pancakes were everything I wanted. Light and fluffy and rich with flavor. I don't even consider them a splurge. They have a lot of healthy goodies for your body mixed in with that holiday spirit.
And now, onto the recipe (serves one)...
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 tbsp. coconut sugar
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/8 tsp. salt
1/2 cup So Delicious Coconut Milk Nog (I know Silk makes a vegan Nog as well)
1. Heat pan on medium. I greased mine with a tsp. of coconut oil.
2. Mix dry ingredients. Add in the Nog and mix.
3. Pour batter onto heated pan and cook until bubbling on first side (about 3 minutes). Flip and cook another three minutes or so.
4. I topped my pancakes with pecans and maple syrup, but do whatever sounds delicious to you! A hearty pat of earth balance also does the trick.
Would you try these? I swear they are so good!
