Hi joyous friends!

I made pancakes for breakie this weekend (BIG SURPRISE -- if you know me, you know I'm a pancake monster!!) and as luck would have it the timing was joyously perfect because this Tuesday is Pancake Tuesday! These gems are dense, full of flavour and very fulfilling, in fact you will be satisfied for hours.

I'm happy to tell you these p-cakes have no eggs. Not that I have anything against eggs, but more and more people are asking me what to substitute eggs for in recipes. These pancakes have no gluten, dairy or refined sugar either.

The recipe inspiration for these p-cakes came from my friends at Genuine Health. You can find the original recipe here, but I made a few changes to it.

  • Makes 10 small pancakes.
  • 2 cups rolled oats (buy Certified "gf" oats if you really want them to be gluten-free)
  • 1/2 cup Genuine Health vegan vanilla protein powder
  • 1 and a 1/4 cups almond milk
  • 1 tbsp ground chia/flax
  • 1 tbsp soft or melted coconut oil
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 tbsp cinnamon
  • 1 tbsp honey
  1. Combine all ingredients into a high power blender. Note: The batter will be quite thick. This is how it is supposed to be.
  2. Melt some more coconut oil on fry pan, about 1 tbsp. Place 1/4 cup approximately of batter on pan and spread/press down with the back of a spoon. Due to their thickness you can't just pour the batter on to the pan. Cook until sides are golden brown and then flip.
  3. Top with warmed blueberries and real maple syrup. I used wild/frozen blueberries and warmed them on the stovetop.


I suggest if you don't have a big family to cook for that you refrigerate the extras and then pop them in the toaster for breakfast the next day. You'll have gourmet breakfast in just a few minutes!

Sad to see you won't be coming to Victoria. Perhaps next time!

Thanks for the pancake recipe, I love pancakes too. I can't wait to try these.

Any suitable replacement for the protein powder, that you think would work? More oats or almond flour perhaps? Thanks :)

I didn't have the protein powder but did have left over organic carrot pulp(from juicing) which I didn't want to waste... Turned out absolutely delicious!
