  1. Preheat a griddle to 350 degrees F.
  2. In a large blender, combine all the ingredients. Blend on high for 30-60 seconds, until well combined. Let the batter sit for 3-4 minutes.
  3. Using a ¼-cup measuring cup, portion batter onto the griddle. Let cook for 1-2 minutes, or until bubbles start forming on the pancake, then flip. Cook for an additional 1-2 minutes, until cooked through.
  4. Remove the pancakes with a spatula and place on a plate. Repeat the last step until all batter is used up and pancakes are done.
  5. Enjoy with pure maple syrup and sliced strawberries (or whatever toppings you enjoy).

Recipe Tips

  • These pancakes will be a bit thinner and denser than traditional flour-based pancakes; that is normal for this recipe. 
  • If you do not have a griddle, you can also make these in a greased skillet over medium-low heat. 
  • One serving of this recipe may be 2 to 4 pancakes, depending on your body’s needs and your hunger level.
