Pancakes have been a staple weekend treat for my partner and I! I’ve tried so many recipes and man have I failed. This recipe has been the one that has consistently not failed to disappoint. The Mr said so himself and I’m actually a very average cook so that’s saying something.
Making pancakes fresh at home saves you so much money and you have much more control over what is exactly going in your food so you can make it healthier. You avoid the premix packs that come in plastic bottles with certain ingredients such as trans fat that is not particularly good for your cholestrol levels. You can make these pancakes without producing any waste at all! Given that you bulk buy these simple ingredients at refillable supermarkets and make your own homemade milk.
I however make them using ingredients with minimal/ recyclable packing to save some time and sometimes it’s more affordable this way. You gotta do what works for you. So here are the ingredients I use:
• 1 Cup Self-raising flour (ASDA)
• 1 teaspoon Baking powder (ASDA)
• 1 teaspoon Stevia (ASDA)
• 1 Cup Almond breeze milk (ASDA)
• 1 tbsp Apple cider vinegar (ASDA)

Sometimes I add 1 teaspoon of Green Origins cacao, spirulina, acai berry powder or cinnamon for added health benefits and flavour! You can add whatever you have handy and if you have nothing.. these taste great just as they are!
This recipe makes about 6 pancakes
1. Mix flour, baking powder and stevia in a bowl
2. Mix almond milk & ACV. Let it sit for 5-7 mins. The mixture might look concerning and gluggy lol but that’s ok it’s just the vinegar reacting with the milk…I promise you won’t taste any vinegar! This is what brings the fluffiness to the pancakes.
3. Pour wet to dry ingredients and mix until mostly blended. (It should be thick but not too lumpy – don’t overmix or it’ll be too flat).
4. Cook in a pan on medium heat with a little oil. I use olive/ coconut oil or sometimes plant based butter. What ever I feel like on the day.
5. Top up with your favourite toppings. You can never go wrong with:
Seriously the best recipe! Hands down one of the things I look forward to on the weekend! These pancakes are delicious, fluffy and spongey!
