Vegan Pancakes

Hellooo foodie lovers! 

Anyone else enjoying this rain today? All I want to do is cuddle up with a good book and some PANCAKES! 

The other day a friend of mine asked me if I knew a good vegan pancake recipe so I tried out a few recipes, made lots of substitutions and tweaked a few ingredients til I fell in love. These babies are PERFECT. Trust me when I tell you.  

Theyre super fluffy and tasty. Try for yourself!

1/2 Cup+2 Tbsp Gluten Free Flour (or any flour of your liking) 

1 Tbsp Coconut Sugar or 1/2 Tbsp Agave/Honey (optional) 

1/2 Tbsp Baking Powder

1/4 Tsp Salt

1/2 Cup Almond Milk (or any non-dairy liquid)

1/2 Tsp Vanilla Extract

DIRECTIONS

1. In a medium bowl, mix together flour, sweetener, baking powder and salt. In a separate bowl, mix together almond milk and vanilla extract.  

2. Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients and mix just until combined. Careful not to over mix! 

3. Heat a griddle or pan on the stove at a low-medium heat and spray with a non-stick cooking spray. Pour batter to whatever size pancakes you prefer. Cook until the edges look dry and when it begins to bubble, flip. Cook for another minute or two.  

ENJOY!

Chia Seed Pudding 3 Ways

Happy Monday pretty people!! 

I've been fortunate enough to have met the incredibly beautiful Sophie Jaffe from thephilosophie.com  who gave me some organic goodies from her company that I am IN LOVE WITH. 

I tried both the Berry Bliss and the Coconut Magic and it's safe to say I'm hooked! Her products are organic and crazy good for you. Go to the site and grab some for yourself!

So lately I've been on a Chia Seed kick- Mamma Chia has the best Chia products I've tried in a while so I put all of the yummy-ness together in this Chia Seed Pudding (3 different ways.) The bottom layer is a Berry Bliss Chia Pudding, the middle layer is an Acai Chia Pudding and the top layer is a plain Vanilla Chia Pudding.  

It's so easy to make and is good for you. Try it out! 

 

p.s. Go follow Sophie on Instagram to see how cute her kids are. Their family melts my heart!!

INGREDIENTS

For the plain Chia Seed Pudding Base: 

3 Tablespoons Chia Seeds (I used Mamma Chia brand) 

3/4 Cup Vanilla Unsweetened Almond Milk (or any liquid of your choice) 

1/4 Cup Water

1 Packet Of Stevia OR 1 Tbsp Raw Honey  

 You Will Also Need:

1 Tablespoon Berry Bliss (purchase on thephilosophie.com) 

1 Tablespoon Acai Powder (I used Navita brand) 

 

DIRECTIONS

1. In a small mixing bowl, combine chia seeds, liquids and sweetener and mix until there are no big lumps. You will need to keep mixing every 30 seconds or so just until the chia seeds begin to absorb the liquids. Otherwise they'll stick together in a huge clump. 

2. Grab 2 more small bowls and split the chia seed mixture evenly between the bowls. You will have 3 in total. Mix 1 Tablespoon of Berry Bliss into one of the bowls and the Acai Powder into another. You will have 3 different colored puddings.

3. Cover the bowls with plastic wrap. Place all 3 bowls in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes or overnight. 

4. Add on any toppings- enjoy!!  I topped mine with Raspberries and Gogi Berries. 

 

NOTE: you can use ANY mix-ins of your choice such as cacao nibs, cocoa powder, blueberries, or any other yummy products from the links listed above.
