Useful tips for Oatmeal Pancakes

Aquafaba, also known as chickpea water, is what we used in place of egg whites (an ingredient in the original). Our vegan french toast uses it similarly.

Where do you get aquafaba? Just make hummus (beet or roasted red pepper or edamame or sun-dried tomato basil or black olive)! And then save the water that comes in the chickpea can.

You can add some flaxseed for a little extra fiber and healthy fats.

If you’re low on oats, you can sub out for granola.

The recipe assumes you’re using store-bought almond-milk. If you’re using homemade, dilute with a bit of water.

Top it how you like! Pictured is strawberry compote (frozen or fresh strawberries heated in a saucepan)and coconut flakes. Peanut butter or blueberries are also great on these pancakes.
