Pancakes with added plant power (DF)


One of my family's favorite weekend breakfast foods is pancakes. Well, I do like french toast too, and I have a recipe using the Complete here that you may be interested. But, my every day breakfast is one of two things: 1) a Complete smoothie with added sources of plant protein or 2) pastured local eggs over medium with veggies on the side. 

I hope you enjoy this pancake recipe. Without buttermilk, they're not fluffy but they're still very good and even better with real maple syrup (mmm grade B is my favorite but hard to come by locally so I buy online).

Ingredients:
1 1/3 cup of flour (I prefer this)
2 tbsp sugar (we like coconut sugar)
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
pinch of sea salt
1 cup of almond milk + *2 tsp
1 egg
1/4 tsp vanilla extract
1/3 cup of vanilla Complete plant powder (or your choice)
1/2 to 1 cup of blueberries (or your berry preference); partially thaw if frozen
1-2 tbsp oil (we prefer coconut oil - buy any cold pressed brand)
