- Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients bowl mixing until the batter is completely smooth.
- Heat a non-stick pan over medium heat and pour a spoonful of the batter using enough mixture to reach the pancake size you like. This recipe made around 10 medium pancakes using 4 tbsp of batter each.
- Cook for 3-4 minutes or until small bubbles appear on the surface so you’ll know they’re ready to flip.
- Continue until you use up the whole batter.
- Serve the pancakes with a spoonful of coconut yogurt mixed a heaped tsp of vanilla plant based protein and a drizzle of caramel tahini sauce.
- To make the sauce, mix 3 tbsp of tahini, 1 tsp of carob powder, 1 tsp of maple syrup and 1 to 2 tbsp of oat milk. Star with one and add more if needed.
- You can make the pancakes ahead and freeze them placing a piece of parchment paper in between them. When ready to have, toast them from frozen and enjoy.
