Dairy-Free “Buttermilk” Spelt Pancakes

Thick, fluffy vegan pancakes that you would never know are missing an egg!

Wholemeal spelt flour provides a little extra fibre, ensuring that this is a breakfast that keeps hunger at bay for a little bit longer.  That said, they totally work with normal white spelt flour or a mixture of both.  So, just use up whatever you have at hand.

Servings: 2 (7-8 pancakes)
Preparation Time - 5 minutes
Cooking Time - 10 minutes


150g (1 ¼ cup) wholemeal spelt flour
2 tsp baking powder
1 heaped tbsp Just Natural Organic milled flaxseed
Pinch of salt
1 tbsp Just Natural Organic coconut sugar (or soft brown sugar)
180ml (¾ cup) Organic Kitchen oat drink (or non-dairy milk of choice)
2 tsp Organic Kitchen organic raw apple cider vinegar with the mother (or lemon juice)
1 tbsp Organic Kitchen extra virgin olive oil (or avocado oil or 1 tbsp melted Organic Kitchen extra virgin coconut oil), + more for cooking

How to Make it

  1. Add all dry ingredients to a bowl.
  2. Separately, whisk together the milk, apple cider vinegar (or lemon juice), and oil of choice in a jug.  Set to one side for 2 minutes.
  3. Add the wet ingredients to the dry and whisk to combine to a smooth batter.
  4. Heat a large pan over medium heat.  Grease with oil of choice.
  5. Use 2 or 2.5 tbsp of batter for each pancake.  Flip once bubbles start to form and cook for 1-2 minutes on the opposite side.
  6. Serve stacked with nut butter, maple syrup, or brown rice syrup (and whatever else your heart desires!).
