Vegan pancakes - Who said vegan can’t enjoy pancakes?

There is a big misconception that just because eggs and dairy milk are left out from a pancake recipe, the final result will turn into a disaster.

I have to be honest; at first, I thought that too. I couldn’t have been more wrong.

Vegan pancakes are just as delicious. In fact, by removing the eggs and swapping cow’s milk with dairy-free milk, I personally find them to be much easier to digest.

Furthermore, when you add just a teaspoon of baobab powder in the mix, you turn it into a super nutritious meal for the whole family.

You can enjoy them as a vegan breakfast at any time of the year or as a carb-loading meal if you are training for a marathon for example.

Most importantly, you will finally be able to celebrate Shrove Tuesday while putting a smile on your vegan loved ones’ faces.

Here is the recipe:


· 1 tsp SACO baobab powder
