Fluffy Pancake Ingredients:

  • 1 cup all purpose flour (sub gluten-free all purpose flour)
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon flaxseed meal + 2 1/2 tablespoons water
  • 1 cup non dairy milk
  • 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon coconut oil + 1 teaspoon for skillet
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup savory granola*

Date-Caramel Ingredients:

  • 2 cups Medjool dates, pitted
  • 1/3 cup non dairy milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt


Date-Caramel Instructions:

  1. If your dates aren't soft, fill a small pot with water just enough to cover the dates. Place on the stove on high and bring to a boil, once the water is boiling reduce heat to a simmer for 3-5 minutes. After 5ish minutes, take off the heat, drain the water and toss the dates into a blender or food processor.
  2. Once your dates are soft add all the ingredients to a blender or food processor and blend until smooth.
  3. Put in a bowl and set aside. (Can store - covered - in fridge for up to a week!)

Fluffy Pancake Instructions:

  1. In a small bowl mix together your flaxseed meal and water, then let it set for 5-10 minutes.
  2. Next, mix together your flour, baking powder, baking soda and cinnamon in a medium sized bowl.
  3. When your flaxseed has become gooey, add it to your dry ingredients along with all the other wet ingredients. (AKA. milk, apple cider vinegar, coconut oil, and vanilla extract)
  4. Gently mix together your pancake batter just until smooth (you don't want to over mix).
  5. Heat a skillet over medium heat with 1 teaspoon of coconut oil. Once hot, add 1/4 cup of pancake batter.
  6. Once the batter bubble slightly, sprinkle the uncooked side with 1 tablespoon(ish) of savory granola, and carefully flip the pancake after 3-4 minutes. Cook on the other side for 1-2 more minutes.
  7. Transfer your pancake to a plate, and slather on 1 tablespoon of date-caramel, then layer on more pancakes, and more date-caramel and finally pour on some maple syrup.
  8. TA-DA - EAT UP.
