Vegan blueberry pancakes
As a kid I always wondered about those big stacks of American pancakes I saw on cartoons. In the Netherlands we only have those thin crêpe-like pancakes. Also the fact that Americans eat pancakes for breakfast was an epiphany for 5-year-old Jalisha. To me, pancakes were always a treat because us Dutchies have all different sorts of toppings like Nutella, bacon or apples. Most of which aren’t even vegan. I always wanted to make my own vegan pancakes, and then came my vegan blueberry pancakes!
A lot of people have messaged me telling me my pancakes looked mouldy and why they were green/blue. It’s simply the colour the blueberries give off, so there’s no mould involved. Obviously. Actually, I think it looks more fun, playful and colourful this way!
I’ve never really liked sweet foods, and I would never in a million years voluntarily choose a sweet breakfast! But the curiosity was killing me. Maple syrup is another thing I was not familiar with as a Dutch person, until I became vegan. But I found that maple syrup is the best topping for pancakes and I don’t want it any different anymore.
Frozen or fresh
I personally really love frozen fruit. It gives me the option to add seasonal fruit to my smoothies and smoothie bowls in winter time. But if you only want fresh fruit, that is of course your choice. But remember that you can only eat certain fruits during a specific time each year. I haven’t used any other fruit than blueberries but I feel like any fruit would work. Another thing that’s in favour of frozen fruit is the cost! Have you ever looked at those €8 tubs of blueberries? I don’t know anyone who has the money to frequently buy those tubs. But the frozen option? Only €2!
Combine the dry ingredients in a large bowl.
Add the blueberries to the batter if you want to add those.
Heat a pan over high heat and add in some oil.
Serve with maple syrup or your toppings of choice! :)
