This is the pancake that I feed my toddler every single morning. I make a batch, then freeze. He eats plain cut-up pieces and likes to make “dippers” in his green smoothie. Todd thinks they’re yummy and I agree with him! They are thick and fluffy. He loves eating the whole organic blueberries (thank you, Costco!). These are only banana-sweetened because I try to limit Todd’s sugar intake as much as possible.
(combine in a large bowl)
3/4 C all-purpose flour
1/4 C organic cornmeal/corn flour
1/4 C oat flour
1/4 C quinoa flour
1 T baking powder
1 T ground walnuts
1 T ground flax
1 t cinnamon
1/4 t salt
(mash together on a plate or blend)
1 very ripe banana
2 T olive oil
1 C non-dairy milk
1/2 t vanilla extract (optional)
1 C frozen organic blueberries
Oil for cooking:
- Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients and don’t over-mix.
- Fold in the blueberries.
- Add a little more non-dairy milk or water to thin the batter, if needed.
- Heat an electric griddle or appropriate pan on the stove top (medium heat).
- Use a little coconut oil in the pan prior to each set of pancakes in your pan.
- Cook the ‘cakes!
THIS is my new favorite homemade non-dairy milk!
For years and years I was in the habit of making homemade milks using a combo of some type of raw nut (including Brazil nut, cashew, almond, and hazelnut) and cooked medium grain brown rice. (See posts “Milk a Plant” and “Coco-Hazelnut Rice Milk” for recipes.)
Now that I’m starting to mix various non-dairy milks into Todd’s formula, I thought I’d try a different flavor. One advantage to making this milk is that you don’t have to take that step of cooking the rice first. A second advantage is that it seems to have less sediment (because the fiber in oats is soluble?). And finally, this milk is soooo deliciously creamy. I love it in my coffee. Ahhh…
It’s so simple to make!
CASHEW OAT MILK
4 C water
1/2 C raw organic cashews
1/3 C organic rolled oats
1-2 pitted dates (optional)
1 t vanilla extract
- Soak the nuts, oats and dates in the water for at least an hour, up to overnight.
- Blend the soaked mixture plus the vanilla extract in a Vitamix or similar high-powered blender.
- Refrigerate and use within ~1 week.
- One batch fills up roughly 3 pint wide mouth glass jars.
Enjoy!! (Sorry– no pictures this time!)
