  • These plant based pancakes are simple, delicious and very healthy!
  1. Add vinegar to soy milk & 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 large pan. When moderately hot, pour on oil & pour approximately 1/3 cup of batter onto pan, forming 4 pancakes. Batter is a little sticky & can be tricky to spread.
