not out of the box

here is a lovely little vegan pancake recipe that i had to share with you.  my husband and i love these and it has become a little sunday morning tradition.   mmmmmmmmm, so good!!!!

i originally found this recipe in one of my favorite books, the rave diet and lifestyle.  this is the book that started it all for me 6 years ago.  along with fabulous information it is also filled with tasty vegan dishes.  

don't be scared they really are super easy so good for you and so worth the few extra minutes they take to prepare over boxed pancake mixes.  

old fashioned pancakes

1 ripe banana, mashed (you can also use pumpkin)
1 cup non dairy milk (i use almond)
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 cup wheat germ
2 tbsp pure maple syrup
1 tbsp vinegar
1/2 tsp sodium free baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda

mix flour, wheat germ, baking powder, baking soda.  in a large bowl, combine banana, syrup, vinegar and milk.  add flour mixture, stirring just enough to remove any lumps and make a batter.  add more milk if batter seems to thick.  on a non stick skillet or griddle, our small amounts of batter onto the heated surface and cook until tops bubble.  turn carefully with a spatula and cook the second sides until browned.  

i top with fresh sliced banana and raspberries!!!!!  YUMMMMMMMMMMM!!!!!
