Pear and Banana Pancakes

 

Would you believe me if I told you I never made pancakes before ? It's not one of my new year's resolutions, but I decided to cook more during 2017, because there are so many plant based recipes to explore and it's far from being complicated. I was craving for pancakes this weekend and wanted to find a healthy vegan version of it. I crossed different recipes and adjusted with my favorite ingredients so I was afraid of the result, but I have to admit I am pretty proud of my first attempt !

 

 

Preparation time : 5mn. Cooking time : 10-15mn.

For the raspberry chia compote

  • 1 cup frozen raspberries
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 tablespoon chia seeds
  • 1-2 tablespoon maple syrup

For the pancakes

  • 1 cup oats
  • 1/2 cup plant based milk
  • 2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 pear
  • 1 banana
  • 2 tablespoon maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Optional : a pinch of cinnamon and ginger

Mix the oats and and put them in a large bowl with the baking powder and the spices. Mix the milk, pear and banana together, add the maple syrup and vanilla extract and mix again. Add slowly the liquid preparation to the dry ingredients and stir well. Put the raspberries and the water in a saucepan and let it cook. When it's hot, take it off the stove and add the maple syrup and the chia seeds. Let it cool down while you cook your pancakes with a non sticky pan. Eat while still warm and tender !
