Wheat Free Vegan Pancakes

These are an original recipe from Barbara Mindell of Amped on Nutrition on Quadra Island
and her latest cookbook "Cooking Your Bummers Out"
If you haven't gotten a look at this cookbook I highly recommend it
Her best recipes that she kept secret for years are printed through its pages
So many of these recipes make it to my favourites list
Her Bean cakes
Peanut Sauce
Zoo Zoo Balls
AND these Vegan Waffles
transformed into pancakes since I am too lazy to pull out the waffle maker
These Freeze beautifully pop into the toaster for healthy food on demand

Wheat Free Vegan Waffles

- 1 Cup of Dry Lima Beans (soak overnight in 3 Cups of Cold water)
- 3 1/2 Cups Rolled Oats 
- 6 TBSP Agave Syrup (optional)
- 1 1/2 TBSP Flax Meal
- 2 TBSP Baking Powder
- 3 1/2 tsp Vanilla Extract
- 2 tsp Salt
4 1/2 Cups Fresh Water

Soak your Lima beans overnight in 4 cups of fresh cold water.
In the morning discard water and rinse with fresh water
Next place your lima beans in a saucepan with 2-3 Cups of Water
Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer for 1/2 hour.
Your Lima Bean goodness is ready to use!

Add all ingredients to the blender, blend until smooth and light and foamy.

Pre heat griddle or Pan on medium heat scoop batter with 1/4 cup measure to make pretty Pancakes!

Tahini Maple sauce

- 1/2 Cup Tahini
- 1/4 Cup Maple Syrup

Choose your most favourite pretty small bowl
combine your Tahini and maple goodness
Next try not to spoon this onto everything in one sitting
Tahini is Sesame butter…Sesame seeds are LOADED with Calcium 

My advice to you..
Make a big ol batch of these Pinners freeze em up
Smugly toast them up whenever you make tea
Spread Tahini
Use the energy it brings you to preform a Random Act Of Kindness
YOu may just make someones day
