Easy Chocolate Chip and Blueberry Sheet Pan Pancakes (Vegan, Gluten Free, and Allergy Friendly)

Easy Chocolate Chip and Blueberry Sheet Pan Pancakes (Vegan, Gluten Free, and Allergy Friendly)

This week while perusing social media (aka Facebook), I saw this really interesting set of pancake recipes from Buzzfeed. They had a set of about four recipes including peaches, blueberries, mixed berries, and banana chocolate chip. It looked really easy and good so I thought about how to change it to a vegan, gluten free, and allergy friendly diet. As you can see below, it’s pretty easy.

Though I must admit, I have the hardest time flipping pancakes. As funny as it is, this recipe is absolute perfection for my lack of flipping skills in the kitchen.

Banana and Chocolate Chip Pancakes

Now as I was looking at the ingredients, it seemed pretty easy overall. You have a dry pancake mix, eggs, milk, and toppings. It’s pretty easy overall to substitute the eggs and milk for vegan versions. For me, I used home made hemp milk and flax eggs to replace those two. The pancake mix I used was from Namaste though you can use any pre-made mix or even your own dry mix. Also, since my baking sheet is small, I halved the recipe and it still came out perfect. Below is the half recipe. For the full recipe, you can find it on Buzzfeed here. The directions are pretty much the same as the original recipe. I just used a smaller temperature¬†in the oven.

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups Pancake Dry Mix
  • 1 cup Nondairy Milk
  • 2 Flax Eggs
  • Toppings of choice

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Line your baking sheet with a sheet of parchment paper.
  3. In the meantime, grind a couple tablespoons of flax seeds into a flaxseed meal. Add 5 tablespoons of water to 2 tablespoons of the flaxseed meal in a bowl. Stir and let sit for 5 to 10 minutes to thicken.
  4. In your electric mixer (or bowl), add all ingredients except your toppings. Then mix together.
  5. Pour the batter into the sheet pan and spread to the edges. Add your toppings then place in the oven for about 20 minutes or until cooked.
  6. Once fully cooked, serve immediately and enjoy!

Easy Blueberry Hemp Protein Overnight Oatmeal (Vegan)

Hi everyone! 

I wanted to share with you all an easy (and vegan!) breakfast that is high in protein and healthy.

As you may be aware, a good breakfast is ideal to help balance your day and having plenty of protein can help you stay fuller longer. Plus the benefits of blueberries being one of the best fruits with fiber and other nutrients adds to this ideal breakfast.

This breakfast oatmeal has quite a bit of protein. Not only from the home made hemp milk but also organic hemp protein drink powder. This protein powder I found on Vitacost (vitacost brand) and not too expensive but a heads up, it does have an earthy taste. If you have a different protein powder, you can certainly try it with this recipe. You might just need to adjust the flavoring if you do.


Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup hemp milk
  • 1 tbs hemp protein powder
  • 1/2-1 cup  blueberries (fresh or frozen)
  • 1 tbs brown sugar
  • Dash of cinnamon

Directions:

  1. Add first four ingredients into a mason jar or other container. 
  2. Add brown sugar and cinnamon to taste then mix contents together.
  3. Place lid on container and put in the refrigerator overnight.
  4. Enjoy!
