milling mondays: 100% whole wheat VEGAN pancakes

this post first appeared on the grain mill wagon


On a Saturday morning shortly after I received my WonderMill, I decided to make pancakes. Michael and I enjoy making pancakes from time to time on a lazy morning.  I was excited about making a more healthy and vegan version of our pancake recipe. It was super easy.
100% Whole Wheat Vegan Pancakes
print-email-text recipe
1  1/2 cup whole wheat flour ( 1 cup hard white wheat berries)
1 Tbsp baking powder
1  1/2 Tbsp raw blue agave (or 3 Tbsp brown sugar for a sweeter taste)
2 Tbsp ground flaxseed mixed with 6 Tbsp water
3 Tbsp apple sauce
1  1/2 cup vanilla almond milk
This recipe yields about 10 pancakes

Grind about 1 cup of hard white wheat berries to make 1  1/2 cup whole wheat flour. I of course use my WonderMill.
Grind 2 Tbsp flaxseeds. Mix the ground flaxseeds with 6 Tbsp water. This is a great egg substitute. Let the mixture sit for a minute and it becomes an egglike consistency.
Mix all the ingredients together adding the flaxseed mixture last. 

Heat up the pan and scoop the pancake batter onto the pan turning half way through. Repeat until all of the batter has been used up.

These pancakes are yummy. To make them even better you can of course add blueberries or chocolate chips to the batter. Enjoy!
