Intro: Vegan Spelt Pancakes With Passionfruit Glaze
Yesterday morning, I invented these tasty beauties! I had some ripe passion fruit & a bag of sprouted wholemeal spelt flour lying around that I needed to use up so I created another new pancake recipe too.
These are just fabulous sprouted wholemeal spelt flour pancakes: thick & fluffy & so good for you too! :)
They are ideal for breakfast & brunch too! And very filling too! :)
Step 1: Gather Your Ingredients!
Recipe: For 6 smaller fluffy vegan pancakes!
1 cup + 1/4 cup (131 gr) sprouted whole spelt flour (I used Rude Health)
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 cup (137 gr) apple sauce
1/2 cup unsweetened soy milk
1/2 teaspoon home-made vanilla extract
1 tablespoon agave
3 ripe passionfruit, each cut open, seeds & flesh spooned out
1 tablespoon agave
Step 2: Make the Dough in Your Vitamix.
Place dry ingredients & wet ingredients in this order into your Vitamix container. Place fitted lid & tamper in. Blend on high-speed until fully mixed. This took me about 10 seconds. Remove lid & tamper. Your pancake mix will be thicker, like this, see photo above!
Step 3: Make Your Passionfruit Glaze!
Place ripe passionfruit seeds & flesh into fitted cooking pot & add agave. Stir & heat up. Simmer for about 3-4 minutes until it forms like a gel aka jam like consistency aka glaze. Taste. It is a bit sweet & you really can taste the full passionfruit flavour & that is what you want. Turn heat off & keep warm while you fry your pancakes. it will look like this:
Step 4: Shape & Fry Your Pancakes!
Shape & fry your pancakes. Take a small pancake pan & smear it in with a fruity oil. Heat up on medium-high. Spoon 2 big small spoonfuls of the dough into your pan & flatten it all out with the back of your spoon to form quickly a roundish shape for your pancake. Wait until bubbles appear into the surface of the pancake & carefully flip your pancake over with help of a pancake spatula & fork. With your pancake flipper, push the upside of the pancake down for an equal fry. When done, place onto a plate & repeat the process. I oiled my pan again & again. When all the pancake batter has been used up, serve at once, like photo above & enjoy! 2 pancakes will be enough because they really fill you up & that is what you want!The pancake itself is a bit sweet, thick & fluffy & the passionfruit glaze on top is also a bit sweet & so addictive as well.
