This is a delicious creamy vegan pancake recipe that is so easy to make and tastes amazing. The nut butter caramel dressing is super simple and makes an ideal sauce for pouring over fruit and waffles too. I use a combination of dairy free milk and aquafaba for the liquid which together with the addition of nut butter creates a lovely creamy and fluffy pancake. Scrummy with dairy free yogurt and fresh berries.

What’s good about it?

Adding nut butter to the pancake mixture is a great way to increase the protein and healthy fats in the mixture. Any nut butter could be used. Tahini is also another great option and high in calcium to support bone health

  1. In a food processor combine the dry ingredients
  2. Add the remaining ingredients and blend until smooth. You should have a thick but pourable batter,
  3. Grease and heat a non-stick frying pan
  4. Place spoonfuls of the batter into the pan to form blinis
  5. Cook on each side until golden. Repeat with the remaining batter
  6. Meanwhile in a small pan heat the maple syrup, milk and nut butter. Stir and simmer for a couple of minutes to form a creamy sauce. Season with a little salt.
  7. Serve the pancakes with berries if wished and the sauce drizzled over
