“Oatcake” For One

Entrees
After years of pancakes followed by stomach aches,

I’ve finally found a solution!

oatcake

These oatcakes, are vegan, clean, and just the right amount of sweet. 

& the funny thing is…

I kind of just made it up as I threw ingredients into a bowl, so they’re super easy to make. If I can do it, you can definitely do it.

 ***I did not know oatcakes existed until I thought I had an epiphany and called it an oatcake. Only to find, in my research, that oatcakes are a Scottish thing and they usually include butter, so here is my clean, vegan version.

Vegan Oatcake for One

Ingredients:

• Handful of oats

• 1-2 Large spoon-fulls of apple sauce

• Couple shakes of cinnamon (adjust to taste)

• Swig of vanilla

• 1 Mashed banana

Directions:

1. Mash the banana with a fork

2. Add the apple sauce + oats

3. Add the cinnamon + vanilla

4. Cook in skillet over medium heat for a couple minutes

5. Top it off with some honey

*adjust amounts of ingredients to however mushy/dense you like your pancakes – I just added enough oats to where it seemed chunky enough to cook in a skillet.

**blending the oats first into an oat flour would be SO ideal if you want more of a homogenous PANcake rather than a chewy OATcake

Super sweet oatcake for one!

Nourishing Vegan Banana Pancakes 

Breakfast

These vegan banana pancakes are hearty, nourishing and packed with omegas!

I’m always amazed at what vegans use as an egg substitute. 

For example, this recipe uses a flax egg 

(1 TBS of freshly ground flax seeds or flax seed meal + 3 TBS of water and let the mixture sit for 15 minutes)

flax egg

Flax eggs = most successful egg substitute

Also, they are high in omega 3 fatty acids (good fat), dietary fiber, and lignans.
