It’s a Pancakes and Beyonce Kinda Day.

I love breakfast and being vegan makes breakfast outside of the house a little tricky unless you want oatmeal and toast.


So, to celebrate the new Beyonce album I made myself my favorite breakfast. Banana Pancakes! really like the Post Punk Kitchen recipe. I just add doubled (sometimes double and a half)  the vanilla and two very ripe mashed bananas.


Here is the recipe from the Post Punk Kitchen site.

1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
3 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
2 tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon salt

1 cup almond milk (or soy milk)
2 teaspoons apple cider vinegar
1 tablespoon ground flax seeds
1/2 cup water
3 tablespoons canola oil
1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

In a large mixing bowl, sift together flour, baking powder, salt and sugar. Make a well in the center.

Measure the milk into a measuring cup. Add vinegar and ground flax seeds, and use a fork to vigorously mix the ingredients until foamy. This will take a minute or so.

Pour the milk mixture into the center of the dry ingredients. Add the water, canola oil and vanilla  and mashed bananas and use a fork to mix until a thick, lumpy batter forms. That should take about a minute. It doesn’t need to be smooth, just make sure you get all the ingredients incorporated.

Preheat the pan over medium-low heat and let the batter rest for 10 minutes.

Lightly coat the pan in oil. Add 1/3 cup of batter for each pancake, and cook for about 4 minutes, until puffy. Flip the pancakes, adding a new coat of oil to the pan, and cook for another 3 minutes or so. Pancake should be about an inch thick, and golden brown.

For the Berries I just washed a couple handfuls of berries and threw them on a pot. I occasionally added a little water and kept stirring it. After the berries had released some juice I added maybe 1.5 – 2 tablespoons of sugar and just kept stirring until it looked ok.
