Oreo Pancakes | Vegan Oreo Pancake Recipe

Standard

These are far from healthfood, but balance is part of the trick to long-term lifestyle changes, and part of balance is allow oneself to be indulgent without guilt.

I was a little upset because I’ve gained three pounds since my breakup and I’ve been super active, but I discovered the other day that I’ve lost 4 inches of belly (I carry almost all of my body fat on my tummy area and AM over-weight), so clearly I’m putting muscle on like a boss, and am shedding the fat I no longer need to feel safe. 4 inches of fat lost, through eating lots of healthy food, and moving my body because it feels good is certainly positive movement.

Author: Minimalist Baker
Recipe type: Breakfast
Serves: 1-2
Ingredients
  • 1/2 cup non-dairy milk (I used SILK coconut)
  • 1/2 cup flour (I used 1/4 whole wheat, 1/4 all purpose)*
  • 1.5 teaspoons baking powder
  • scant ¼ cup dark chocolate cocoa powder (or regular)*
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 Tablespoon sugar (or other sweetener)
  • 1 Tablespoon oil (I used canola)
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • FROSTING FILLING
  • 1.5 cups unsweetened coconut flake
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2-3 Tablespoons coconut milk (or other non-dairy milk)*
  • 2-3 Tablespoons powdered sugar (optional)
Instructions
  1. FROSTING – Using a food processer, mix the coconut flakes until they form coconut butter. Scrape down the sides as necessary. It may not come to a full paste but it should be near creamy. (Start your pancake batter while it’s mixing)
  2. Once creamy, add vanilla and powdered sugar and mix again.
  3. While the mixture is processing, add in splashes of coconut milk until it resembles a creamy frosting that retains a little thickness.
  4. BATTER – Heat a skillet over medium-low heat.
  5. Mix milk, oil and vanilla in a small bowl and set aside.
  6. Whisk the flour, baking powder, cocoa powder, sugar and salt in a separate bowl until combined.
  7. Add the liquid to the dry and mix with a wooden spoon until just combined. Add a touch more milk if it’s too thick.
  8. Drop small scoops of batter onto the lightly greased skillet. When bubbles start to peak through the surface and you see a bit of light browning/crisping up on the underside, flip the pancakes over carefully, about 2-3 minutes.
  9. Repeat on the other side, remove from the pan.
  10. Top pancakes with as much frosting as desired. I found a small spoonful between each later was plenty.
Notes
* Use gluten-free flour to make this recipe gluten-free.
* Be sure not to put in a whole 1/4 cup cocoa powder or it will make the batter too dry. About 3 rounded Tablespoons should do.
* Coconut milk works best in the filling – I prefer SILK brand.
* This recipe fed me twice, but double it for more than 2 people.

About couleewind

I'm a 41 year old woman from a small city in Alberta Canada. I am whimsical and bitter-sweet and am essentially a marshmallow in a porcupine suit. I collect Pez dispensers and books and I love to talk, although I do tend to be fairly introspective. The sort of content which you will find here will vary depending on the day, my mood and what’s going on in my world or of interest to me. I mainly blog as method of reflecting on my day and on my life at the time of the post. I have a history of struggling with social anxiety and depression, as well as type two diabetes, and through living a plant-based, wholistically centered life I've made great strides in these areas. This blog is meant to reflect where I'm at in my life, and how I'm moving toward creating the life I see myself having in my dreams. I will often discuss, whole foods, meditation, personal growth and my day to day struggles and victories. I am also a highschool drop out who is returning to school at age 42, and a person who lives on a very tight fixed income currently, this will also be reflected in my blog.
