Vegan Oatmeal Banana Pancakes: Semi-original

This really is my M.O, isn’t it? Stealing recipes and making them vegan….but you know what? All for a good cause, right?

This one is adapted from the “Moosewood Restaurant New Classics” cookbook. (it’s a great one, by the way — written by the owners of the Moosewood Restaurant in New York — definitely worth checking out!) The pancakes are already vegetarian, but I made some modifications to make them vegan. Enjoy!

Dry Ingredients:
1 cup wheat flour (use other for gluten-free option)
1/2 tsp salt
2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 cup rolled oats, ground fine (or can use instant oats)

Mix together all dry ingredients; set aside.

In a separate bowl, combine the following:

1 Tbsp ground flax (soaked in 3 Tbsp hot water for 2-3 minutes)
1 cup vanilla almond milk
1 Tbsp vegetable or coconut oil
2 Tbsp maple syrup
1 cup sliced banana

Add these to the dry ingredients and stir until just combined. Cook on a lightly oiled skillet, 1-2 minutes each side.

There are myriad ways to serve this, but I had a ton of figs that I picked from my best friend’s tree yesterday so I thought they would be lovely with it. They were, along with some fresh strawberries and a dollop of organic peanut butter (aka the food of the Gods, am I right??)
