I have been trying to master the perfect fluffy vegan pancakes - these are by far my favourite pancakes, I dare say even rivalling my mothers traditional pancake recipe!

Vegan Lime Pancakes (serves 3)

2 cups wholemeal SR flour 

2 tbsp baking powder

1 tbsp lime zest 

2 tbsp chia seeds

4 tbsp water

1 tbsp lime juice

1 tbsp rice malt syrup (or other liquid sweetener)

2 cups almond milk (or other plant based milk)


In a large bowl combine the dry ingredients (Flour, baking powder and zest). In a small bowl combine chia seeds and water and then set aside for 5 minutes to allow chia seeds to absorb the water. Then add the chia seed mix, lime juice, rice malt syrup and almond milk to the flour and whisk until smooth. 

Heat a non stick pan, and then cook 1/4 cup mixture for 2 minutes then flip and cook for a further 1 minute. Repeat with the remaining mixture. 

Serving suggestions:

- maple and caramelised banana

- raw chocolate sauce, blueberries and passionfruit!
