This year I’ve tried to be a little different in the way I eat. I decided that I would become a vegan/vegetarian. Before everyone bashes me down, just don’t. Its one of those new years resolutions that i wanted to challenge myself for and see if there are health benefits to it and also sneakily saving the planet.
For some odd reason breakfast has been a hard one for me. Avo on toast is delicious, but after your fourth morning it tends to get a bit bleh. So while scrolling on Facebook I came across this video of having vegan ‘pancakes’ (theyre not pancakes because pancakes are thin and these were not soooo – theyre think and fluffy)
Without further ado here is the oh so simple recipe:
- 1 cup of self raising flour
- 1/4 teaspoon of salt
- 2 tablespoons of sugar
- 1 cup of milk alternative (I use rice milk)
- 1 tablespoon of apple cider vinegar
- 1 teaspoon of vanilla essence
In separate bowls mix the wet ingredients together (let the wet ingredients chill for 5 minutes) and the dry ingredients. Take the wet ingredients bowl and mix it into the dry ingredients bowl and let that chill for 5 minutes. (in this time you can make a simple berry coulis – by mixing a tablespoon of frozen berries, with a tablepsoon of water and a sprinkle of sugar – 1/4 cup).
Once done chilling, heat up a sauce pan, use grease of your choice, make your first flapjack, throw it away (because those always flop). Once done, plate up and serve with a good helping of the berry coulis or whatever tickles your fancy.
