When you think of pancakes, the first thing that comes to mind is likely a towering stack of fluffy pancakes
drowning in butter and maple syrup. Nothing wrong with that if you’re looking to indulge at breakfast.
If you don’t want to indulge, you go for something more like these hearty vegan pancakes filled with coconut and oats. They’re tasty, filling, and nutritious thanks to bananas and flax.
The oats come in the form of oat flour, which I make by grinding in my coffee grinder because who wants to pay five times the price for essentially the same thing?
Serve these with maple syrup if you want, but they’re just as delicious without.
