I eat vegan chocolate chip pancakes for breakfast almost every Sunday. And sometimes more often than that. Problem is, I always lose my recipe (I don't have a great storage system -- I pretty much scrawl recipes on whatever piece of paper is closest to me at the time). And I have a terrible memory, even though this particular mix is pretty basic.
So, every Sunday, I find myself searching through cupboards and drawers for that yellow piece of paper I've written it on. This weekend, I decided to change all that. I decided to plan ahead for a more delicious tomorrow.
To make your own vegan pancake mix is easy. Just find an airtight container, mix together the ingredients, and store. You will also want to place a sticker somewhere on your container with instructions (mostly how to add the wet ingredients). I suggest a sticker because it's one less piece of paper to have flying around your kitchen. But if you're better at remembering things than I am -- do what works best for you.
Otherwise, you'll defeat the purpose entirely.
What you'll need . . .
- 32 ounce (or larger) container
- 2 cups wheat pastry flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 tablespoon sugar (I used Sugar in the Raw)
Method . . .
- In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, baking powder, and sugar. Make sure it's well incorporated.
- Pour it into the container and cover. Best to use an air-tight variety to ensure freshness.
- Then make a sticker that says something like: To make a single serving, mix together 1/2 cup mix plus 1/2 cup soy milk and 2 teaspoons canola oil. Add vegan chocolate chips, if desired (yes, please!). Heat a pan over medium heat and add a splash of oil. Pour mix in 1/4 cupfuls and cook until browned on both sides.
