How to make Blueberry Smoothie Spelt Pancakes
Firstly, I blended blueberries, almond milk, dates, vanilla extract, hemp seeds and blend it smooth in a blender. Then, I kept it aside.
Secondly, I folded in dry ingredients, soaked flax meal and smoothie all together and whipped it into a batter.
Thereafter, in a warm griddle I scooped about 2 tbsp. batter on it and shaped it into round. Then, I let it cook on one side on a medium flame.
Afterwards, I flipped it into the other side and let it cook again until it was golden brown.
I repeated the same process for the rest of the batter and then I served it immediately along with fresh blueberries and maple syrup.
When to flip spelt pancakes
For the soft and fluffy pancakes, patience is the key. Once you pour the batter on a warm pan let it cook at medium flame until bubbles form at the top of the batter and the sides start to dry up. The more bubbles are formed at the top the softer and fluffier the pancakes would be. Flip and let it cook again from the bottom. You will notice a slight rise at this point. Gently, scoop it out with a flat spatula and place it on the serving plate.
- It is important to blend the smoothie mixture as smooth as possible for the smooth batter.
- While mixing the batter make sure the dry ingredients are well mixed and there are no lumps in it.
These Spelt Pancakes are healthy pancakes with the goodness of whole grains and lots of antioxidant and omega 3 with required protein.
Spelt flour is a whole grain and is healthier because it has more fiber and other minerals as compared to regular flour.
This tastes best when served immediately. However, the leftovers can refrigerated for about a week. Simply warm them up in microwave before consuming.
White spelt flour and whole grain spelt are availbale in the market. However, I personally prefer whole grain to add more health into my diet.
