Recipe by Ali Lopez

2 cups whole wheat pastry flour
1 teaspoon cinnamon
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons chia seeds
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
2 cups non-dairy (or dairy if you prefer) milk
2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 tablespoons melted coconut oil or neutral oil
2 tablespoons maple syrup
oil or vegan butter or butter for the pan
Toppings: more chia seeds, peanut butter, fresh berries, sliced bananas

  1. In a large bowl, sift together dry ingredients. 
  2. In another bowl, whisk together the wet ingredients.
  3. Add the liquid mixture to the dry and stir until just combined. Don’t overmix! A few small lumps are okay.
  4. Heat a griddle or skillet to medium heat and lightly grease with oil or butter. Make sure the pan is hot. 
  5. Pour out batter for the size pancakes you want. Cook until little bubbles form on the uncooked side of the pancake and then flip. Cook another minute or so.
  6. Serve with your choice of toppings. Makes about 10 5-inch pancakes.
