Vegan Chia Seed Pancakes

Vegan Chia Seed PancakesThese Vegan Chia Seed Pancakes are both filling and delicious. The chia seeds give them extra volume, fiber and protein to keep you going all morning.

Chia seeds are a great source of protein, fiber, omega-3 fatty acids and calcium. Numerous studies show that chia seeds help with skin conditions, aging, digestive health, heart health, treatment of diabetes, stronger bones, muscle building, weight loss, cancer prevention and treatment, and dental health. These benefits surely put chia seeds in the super food category.

Because they expand in liquid, chia seeds make you feel fuller and therefore eat less. That’s why they help with weight loss. When prepared in meals like these pancakes, they’re hardly noticeable, but you still get their powerful nutrient punch.

We like to cook our pancakes on an electric griddle. You can cook more of them at once and they cook more evenly than cooking them on the stove.

These Vegan Chia Seed Pancakes are oil free and soy free, but you can probably make them gluten free by swapping out the all-purpose flour with a gluten free variety. If you try that, let us know how it goes in the comments.

Vegan Pancakes

Vegan PancakesThis Vegan Pancakes recipe tastes like it has dairy and eggs, but doesn’t. The pancakes are light and fluffy, and fast and easy to make. This is another recipe that falls into the category of “if you don’t tell them, they won’t know it’s vegan.”

We like to cook our pancakes on an electric griddle so they cook more evenly and we can cook several of them at one time. But you can cook them in a large skillet or square pancake griddle on the stove, too. It just takes longer. That’s how my mom has always done it.

Enjoy topped with organic maple syrup or your favorite fruit preserves. Goes great with Veggie Sausage. Makes about 24 – 3″ diameter pancakes.
