Healthy Vegan Pancakes


Happy Monday guys!! I am super excited about today’s post because breakfast is my favorite meal of the day. I love the combination of sweet & salty options. On weekdays, I usually throw something quick together, but on weekends I like to take the time to experiment with healthy brunch recipes! You can probably guess where I got this idea – Pinterest. The pancakes are so easy to make & taste like banana bread! I added the vegan sausage & raspberries on the side, but feel free to add whatever else you want.

Ingredients: 1 Banana

1 cup instant oats

3 cups Almond milk ( or any non-dairy milk of your choice)

Prep time: 20 minutes

Serves: 6

For the pancakes, put 1 cup of instant oats in the blender & grind them. Next, add a chopped up banana and 3 cups of milk. Blend together until smooth.

Place some batter on a heated skillet with some oil or vegan butter. Cook for about 2 minutes on each side, or until somewhat brown.

Balsamic Strawberries & Cream Croissantwiches

This sweet recipe is perfect for brunch or an after dinner treat. I found this recipe while scrolling through Pinterest & decided to give it a try. It was super easy to make & turned out just like the picture I pinned, so that’s a good sign.

Ingredients: 6 croissants

1 cup sliced strawberries

1/2 cup cream cheese

1 tbsp sugar (or more if you like really sweet stuff)

1/2 tbsp balsamic vinegar

chocolate syrup or hot fudge

1 tsp butter

Prep time: 20 minutes

Serves: 6

Start by toasting your croissants. While they’re toasting, melt the butter on medium heat. Add the strawberries, vinegar, & sugar & stir for approximately 5 minutes or until the strawberries look dark red. Remove the strawberry mixture from the heat & let cool. Spread cream cheese on one side of the toasted croissant & then add the cooled strawberries & sauce. Add the other side of the croissant on top & drizzle your choice of chocolate. Refrigerate until ready to eat or chow down immediately!

P.S. I didn’t have balsamic vinegar so I used a substitute of 1/2 tsp of honey & 1 tbsp of apple cider vinegar & it was fine. Also, if you want to serve a larger crowd, slice the croissant in half & serve 10-12.
