Scott Jurek's Vegan Strawberry Pancakes

These are SO good - please try them!  You really don't need syrup, they're already pretty sweet because of the strawberries.  Plus, warm & filling - need I say more?!?

First, I mixed a double batch in a container.  Isn't it beautiful?  Recipe below is for 1 batch (6-10 pancakes if they're small)

1/4 cup spelt flour
1/4 cup buckwheat flour
1/4 cup whole wheat flour
1/4 cup oat flour (grind 1/4 cup old fashioned oats in food processor)
1/4 cup millet flour
1/4 cup rye flour
1/4 cup barley flour (I couldn't find, so used another 1/4 cup whole wheat flour)
1/4 cup corn meal
1/4 cup ground flax seed or chia seed
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 cups almond milk
3 tablespoons olive oil (I only put in 2 for an entire double batch - obviously, this adds calories fast - yes, good calories, but you may be able to omit more)
5 packets Truvia (or 2 Tbsp agave nectar or maple syrup)
1 tsp vanilla extract
1.5 cups fresh strawberries, cut small (probably could do blueberries, bananas, ?)
oil for pan
Maple syrup for topping

It might seem like a lot of different flours to round up, but it's worth it if you can make up a bigger batch & just have on hand.

Mix together and cook like a normal pancake.  Enjoy while hot off the pan.  You can taste the different flour textures.  SOOOO good! 

Nate added more fresh strawberries to the top of his, but I was content without.

I can tell, you're already looking forward to your next long run/ski/bike so you can have these!!

Calories: 670 per half batch above (made with just 1 Tbsp of oil).  So make sure to find someone special (or 3!) to share it with :)  5:1 carb/protein ratio.  Flax seed and oil provide good fat calories as well - so this is darn near a perfect food choice!

  1. These look amazing. I think I need to stop by the co-op for supplies and give these a try.
