This is the easiest brunch ever because nothing here is made from scratch. So do this when people are coming over or it makes a nice Christmas morning brunch too. You want to get your favourite vegan pancake mix and add non-dairy milk, plus whatever added flavours you like - fresh blueberries, peaches, cranberries, or chocolate chips and banana slices!
We tried coyote brand pancake mix and this one we used is the only vegan mix. We didn't follow the instructions on the package because the batter needed a lot more liquid than it stated.
pancake ingredients (makes 8):
1 1/2 C non-dairy milk
1 banana, sliced into rounds
1/4 C chocolate chips or raw cacao nibs
2-3 tbsp vegan butter for frying
In a mixing bowl combine the pancake mix with non-dairy milk. It should be a runny consistency if you want nice, thin, evenly cooked pancakes. If you want them fluffy by all means leave out the extra 1/2 C of liquid. I just find they're never cooked in the middle when you do this. Then fold in chocolate chips and banana slices.
Heat a non-stick pan to medium heat and when it's hot use a paper towel to spread a small amount of vegan butter on the bottom surface of the pan. It should sizzle. Then take a 1/4 C of pancake batter and pour it in the centre of the pan. Once the surface starts to bubble a lot then you can flip the pancake over and cook on the other side for 1-2 minutes. Continue until all the pancakes are made.
I like to keep them warm by placing the finished pancakes on a baking sheet in the oven heated to 200F.
We also tried yves veggie breakfast links and fried those in 2 tsp of maple syrup so they tasted restaurant style and... voila. Breakfast is served!
