Oh the things I was out of when I created this dish: no milk and no eggs, but we wanted pancakes, dangit! I used flax meal to make up for the protein in the egg (a vegan trick) and substituted orange juice for milk. The result was pancakes bursting with citrus flavor. It’s a new favorite in our house! Serve with butter and/or maple syrup.

Recipe Ingredients

  • 2 cups white whole wheat flour
  • 2 tablespoons baking powder
  • 2 tablespoons ground flax meal
  • 17 fluid ounces orange juice
  • 1 teaspoon orange extract

Cooking Directions

  1. 1 Whisk flour, baking powder, and flax meal together in a bowl; stir orange juice and orange extract into flour mixture until batter is well-combined.
  2. 2 Heat a lightly oiled griddle over medium-high heat, or an electric griddle to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Drop batter by large spoonfuls onto the griddle and cook until bubbles form and the edges are dry, 3 to 4 minutes. Flip and cook until browned on the other side, 2 to 3 minutes. Repeat with remaining batter.

  1. It is fine! Although you must be careful because the first time I made them, they were crispy, not like pancakes at all ??
  2. When I saw this I knew I had to give it a go. I had a bunch of OJ just sitting around not getting used up so I when I saw this it was perfect. So easy and so tasty. I am not much of the vegan way to eat things but I do enjoy - Read more ...
  3. 7.29.18 These pancakes had a good rise but there definitely was an aftertaste of baking powder. Pancake texture is somewhat dense not fluffy and light but the orange flavor came through well.
  4. I used a cup of white flour and a cup of whole wheat but otherwise followed the recipe as written. Ate them with butter and syrup and they are quite good.
  5. I made these they were great:D I also LOVE savoury pancakes
  6. This has got to be the weirdest pancake recipe I have ever come across on allrecipes! Having said that I was surprised I did not detect the flaxseed meal at all!!! The orange taste was not overwhelming it was just a very small hint of bright citrusy flavor. I will have to remember this recipe - Read more ...
