  • 1 cup unflavored soy or almond milk
  • 1 tbsp. ground flax seeds
  • 1 tbsp. vegetable oil, plus extra for grilling
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • ½ cup buckwheat flour
  • ½ cup spelt flour, or more buckwheat flour, or all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • ½ tsp. ground cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp. salt
  1. Stir milk, flax seeds, oil and vanilla together in a small bowl. Allow to sit for 5 minutes. While wet mixture sits, stir flours, baking powder, cinnamon and salt together in a medium bowl. Add wet ingredients and stir together until fully blended.
  2. Lightly oil the bottom of a nonstick skillet and place over medium heat. When oil is hot, pour ¼ cup of batter into skillet. Cook until small bubbles form in the middle, about 3-4 minutes. Flip and cook about 2 minutes more on opposite side. Repeat until all batter is used, adding oil to skillet as needed between cakes.
  3. Serve with vegan butter, maple syrup, and optionally a sprinkle of cinnamon.
Recipe Notes

I haven't been adding any sweetener to my pancakes lately. I don't really think it's necessary, especially given the fact that they get drenched in maple syrup, but if you prefer a sweeter cake feel free to add 1-2 tablespoons of your favorite granulated sugar.
