I have been craving #pancakes for a while and found this super fluffy whole #wheat #eggfree #oilfree #dairyfree recipe with #cinnamon and #vanilla in the batter.  Topped with warm fresh #strawberry #compote. Totally hit the spot. Exactly the hearty, nutty flavor I was going for. These and another half cup of black coffee will help fuel my 2 mile walk.


Fluffy whole wheat pancakes topped with warm apple cinnamon compote

Recipe adapted from Running on Real Food


Ingredients


1 cup whole wheat flour

1 tbsp baking powder

1/2 tsp sea salt

1 cup water

2 tbsp pure maple syrup

1/2 tsp cinnamon (optional)

1 tsp vanilla


Directions


Mix together the dry ingredients in a bowl.


Add the water and maple syrup until "just mixed" (do not over-mix or this may make the pancakes tough).


Let the batter sit for 5-10 minutes.


While you wait, heat your griddle or skillet. Lightly oil the pan.


Use 1/4 cup - 1/2 cup batter for each pancake and drop into hot skillet. Once small bubbles form in the middle and the edges are browned, flip and heat for a few more minutes on the other side.


Serve with warm fruit compote or maple syrup.
