Breakfast pancakes
Possibly the best breakfast in our opinion!  What a way to kickstart Veganuary!  This recipe is for 4 people and is gluten-free and vegan!
300g gluten-free self raising flour
1 tsp gluten-free baking powder
1 tbsp coconut sugar
1 tbsp vanilla extract
400ml plant-based milk (we use oat milk)
1 tbsp coconut oil, Pinch of salt.
Method:
1. Whisk the flour, baking powder, sugar, vanilla extract and a pinch of salt in a large bowl.
Slowly pour in the milk until you get a smooth, thick batter.
2. Heat a little of the oil in a non-stick frying pan over a medium heat, and add 3 tbsp batter into the pan at a time.  Cook for about 3 mins until the edges are set and bubbles are appearing on the surface.  Flip the pancakes over and cook for another 2-3 mins until golden.  Keep warm in a low heated oven while you cook the rest of the pancakes.
3.  Stack them high with toppings of your choice.  We LOVE ours topped with homemade pecan butter, blueberries and strawberries (pictured) - or go all out and serve with sliced bananas and date caramel!  Amazing!
