For the love of Pancakes

By Jen- Head Rebellious Researcher and Badass Foodie @ RR HQ

If like me you would give your right arm for a scrumptious stack of pancakes served to you daily in bed, then you will have been drumming your fingers impatiently against your pancake pan eagerly awaiting our favourite day this year! Unfortunately for all of us with a passion for pancakes, this fabulous day of appreciation has fallen much later this year due to Easter being late on in April. However, the wait is over and its finally here! 

Despite pancake day being a religious tradition, the popularity of these fluffy, super instagramable goodies has been rising exponentially in recent years with vegan and healthier options in particular taking a front seat. They’re not just to be reserved for the weekend or special #pancakeparties either,  you can make them full of nutritious ingredients with stacks of flavour any day of the week and an added bonus (for me anyway) is that you can decorate the hell out your stacks and make them look extra droolworthy! They are also incredibly child friendly as well as being easy and quick to make… if we need anymore reasons to get whisking!

Having enjoyed compiling my little Valentines recipe roundup feast I thought it might be nice to do something similar each month to give you lovely lot a handy hub where you can grab some of the most delicious plant based recipes out there right now. So here goes with a few of my favourites… my top 5 stacks (plus Nikki’s favourite pancake recipe too!) that will have you putting the lemon and sugar firmly back in the cupboard and really get your taste buds a flippin’  (all vegan and gf and some even full of veggies too!)

Don’t forget to let us know if you whip any of these up in your own kitchens – just tag @rebelrecipes and the recipe creator in your pics… Happy Pancake Day xxx

Blueberry Buckwheat Pancakes with Berry Compote By Hazel Wallace @thefoodmedic

Hazel is a practicing doctor (and all round lovely human) who has created the food medic as an educational platform and media group with an aim to bridge the gap between traditional medical advice and the latest thoughts and developments in nutrition and other lifestyle areas. Her blueberry pancakes use buckwheat flour which I love as a gluten free flour alternative as it is rich in fibre and good source of minerals as well as giving the pancakes a really satisfying consistency.

These little beauties use chia seeds and water as an egg replacement and when we tried them we used turmeric and vanilla as flavourings which worked a treat with the sweetness of the bluebs!
