Sunday Pancakes

I must say there is something special about cooking pancakes on a Sunday. Making them has become a ritual, a habit to do. It’s the only day during the week where I don’t need to run out of the house stressed on early mornings. I find myself more at ease, relaxed and peaceful while I’m doing it. Cooking teaches patience, presence. To me it’s like meditation, a way to connect off. The reward after waiting patiently for them to be done, is so worth it afterwards (although I struggle to have some pancakes left on my plate as I eat them while I cook). They taste heaven, I love how fluffy and thick they are. Oh and let’s not forget the chocolate chips and blueberries inside which is the best part. It truly is a real treat to yourself at the end of the week.

How to make them, you will need these ingredients:

  • Whole wheat flour
  • Baking powder
  • Apple cider vinegar
  • Oat milk

I guess you understand now how simple they are to make and why it’s so chill to be making pancakes on a lazy Sunday! Maybe you find the inspiration to make these this Sunday. Remember that it is important to reward ourselves of our efforts so that we can keep up and motivate ourselves to push forward. Small joys are significant to bring more happiness into our lives and I hope you will appreciate the joy of making Sunday pancakes.

So as for how to make my Sunday pancakes, I didn’t do measuring of flour and oat milk as I did it in a chilled way and I think that’s part of the beauty too! What I will guide you to do is:

1. First mash one banana in a bowl. Then add the flour and 2 tsp of baking powder.

2. Pour some oat milk to stir with, and remember we don’t want a runny batter.. We want thickness! When you have mixed well, add 1 tbs of apple cider vinegar, this is the secret to why these pancakes gets fluffy and rise.

3. Let the batter rest for 5 minutes so that you let the apple cider vinegar work. Oh and let’s not forget to mix in the dark chocolate chips and blueberries that makes a huge difference!

4. While you let the batter rest, heat a pan on medium heat. Add some coconut oil so that the batter doesn’t stick to the pan. Cook them well for at least 3 minutes each sides and you’ll know when to flip them when you see bubbles on the surface!

Voila, you’ve made yourself Sunday pancakes!

Ps: for toppings, drizzle some maple syrup or honey, some raspberries and bananas and cinnamon! Pure deliciousness
