Vegan Blueberry Pancakes with Chia

Hello dear friends & family, it has been a while, hasn’t it?

My new job is going crazy on me. I am losing myself in this work – it is just so much fun. My first week ended yesterday and I already stayed about 3 hours longer and got handed over the management for one project. But this is something I will fill you in on another post. Now I want to share with you how we started our weekend:

Vegan Blueberry Pancakes with Chia

Yes. Simple, good, and quick. And if you have the right pan then there is almost no way you could mess them up. Here we go:

You need:

1 cup of flower – ehhh flour (~120g)
2 tbsp (~30g) baking powder
1 tbsp chia seeds
pinch of salt

optional: 2 tsp cacao powder

1 cup soy / almond / rice milk (pick whatever you have in the fridge)
2 tbsp vegetable oil (no olive oil – obviously!)
1 tbsp agave syrup (or honey if you are not 100% vegan)

oil for the pan

You make:

Sieve the flour (I know, its annoying but it helps) and mix the dry ingredients from the first paragraph. I for my part grind the chia seeds before because I don’t like having the big seeds stuck between my teeth – but this is optional.

Then combine the wet ingrediends (second paragraph) in another bowl.

Ingredients for the vegan blueberry pancakes

Gently fold in the liquids & dry ingredients. Don’t push it though. I learned, that the little tiny chunks of flour, that stay in the dough are what make the pancakes fluffy afterwards, so don’t stirr it to death.

Now be quick, because the baking powder starts to work right away. If you want, you can let the mix sit in the fridge for a few minutes but that will also make the chia seeds soak with liquids.

Now pour some vegetable oil in the pan and spread it evenly with a paper towel. You can use the towel alter to re-oil the pan a few times but you will have to pour some more at some point.

Splash the dough in the preheated pan and sprinkle blueberries on top. The pancakes you see here are a little brownish because I added a teaspoon of cacao powder to the dough – totally optional. Flip the pancakes when you see a lot of bubbles bursting on the top and they slide around freely in the pan.



Of course we enjoyed the nice growing warm stack of pancakes with fresh fruits, maple syrup and chocolate spread:
