Pistachios make for a great pancake, I have discovered. Today’s recipe is a vegan chocolate chip pancake with pistachios.
I know how ironic this sounds. Presenting a breakfast recipe by a person who never eats breakfast.
I am more of a “brinner” type of person. I like my breakfast foods during dinner time.
You better not be judging me right now!
Ok, go ahead and judge. It is so much more satisfying to have my pancakes for dinner
This vegan chocolate chip pancake will make for a great brunch item this Sunday.
This recipe is a vegan version of pancakes. Trust me, it is not bad at all. The almond milk and flax seed flour is a great substitute for eggs. I promise you that you will not miss the
cholesterol eggs in this recipe.
Also, what is a pancake without buttermilk, right? So, I found a recipe for making vegan buttermilk. It is so simple to make and you won’t know the difference. For my recipe, I used almond milk to make the buttermilk. However, you can use Soy milk also to make it but don’t use rice milk.
Since this pancake was a little out of the ordinary, I wanted to add something that would make it a little more like traditional. Enter chocolate chips! They melt into the pancake and into your mouth.
To emphasize the green color, I added some (affiliate link) vegan green food coloring. Or, you can make your own food coloring using spinach.
Now that you know how easy it is to make buttermilk, will you make your own?
Do you like waffles? I made these Kale waffles and they turned out really delicious.
