Vegan Pancakes

Today I made vegan pancakes!

I followed the recipe in the back of the pancake mix…but I added a twist!

You’ll need:

1c of Pancake mix

1 tbs of flaxseed meal (It’ll be your egg replacement)

3/4c of coconut milk

1tbs of coconut oil

3 tbs of water

This will yield about 3-4 thin pancakes or 2 real thick ones

Start by mixing the flaxseed meal and the water – Let it sit for 2 minutes

While that’s sitting, mix everything else and then add the flaxseed

Beat it manually with a fork until it’s the right consistency

Put it on a pan at medium heat and let it cook, flipping it in order to cook both sides

Add syrup and enjoy!

Disclaimer: This is not going to taste like IHOP’s pancakes, be realistic! They will taste delicious though and how long has it been since you had chocolate chip pancakes anyway?

Vegan Sausage

I tried LightLife Gimmy Lean Ground Beef Style Sausage and I must say I am impressed. I haven’t tasted animal sausage in about six years but this really reminds me of the taste. It comes mushed together so you have to build the size of the patty but it’s very easy. Then you pan fry it for a few minutes with some olive oil, and voila! You’ve got sausages!

I have to say it’s very yummy!



Ezekiel Sprouted Grain Bread

That means it has no wheat and it’s all protein!

I love these products! You can find them in the freezer isle with the breakfast foods.

I keep the bag in the fridge and toast the loaf of bread I want to eat it. I put vegan butter, peanut butter and jelly, or almond butter on it like a regular piece of bread.

I also enjoy their golden flax cereal. I eat it with some bananas and blueberries in vanilla coconut milk. I really enjoy that!
