Vegan Pumpkin Pancakes: (click to expand)
    Ingredients:
  • 1 cup Soy Milk Unsweetened (or alternative)
  • 2 Tbs expeller-pressed non-gmo Canola Oil
  • 1 Tbs Apple Cider Vinegar
  • 2 cups Rolled Oats (not instant)
  • 3/4 cup pure Pumpkin Puree

  • 1/2 tsp (heaping) Potassium Baking Soda [Potassium Bicarbonate]
  • 1/4 tsp Iodized Salt
  • 1 tsp Cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp Nutmeg
  • 1/4 tsp Ginger
  • 1/4 tsp (slightly scant) Cloves
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 4 Tbs Maple Syrup
  1. Add vinegar to soy milk and set aside.
  2. Grind oatmeal in blender to create flour.
  3. Mix remaining dry ingredients into oats.
  4. Mix in remaining wet ingredients until well blended, scraping down sides as needed.
  5. Heat pan. When moderately hot, spray with oil and pour approximately 1/3 cup of batter onto pan. Batter is a little sticky and can be tricky to spread.
  6. Cook for one to two minutes.
  7. When edges start to look dry, flip and cook until lightly firm to touch.
  • Notes: Batter thickens as oats absorb liquid. Cook pancakes soon after the batter is formed. As it thickens, pancakes will still be fine, but harder to spread on pan.
  • If outside is cooking faster than inside, turn down heat.
