Lemon poppy seed pancakes are a little tart, a little sweet, and a lot of delicious. They’re fluffy and flavourful with lovely texture from the poppy seeds throughout.
These delicious pancakes also happen to be perfect for all eating preferences. They’re vegan, gluten free, oil free, sugar free, and can easily be made nut free by swapping the cashew milk with any plant milk of choice. So get ready to dig in!
How to make lemon poppy seed pancakes
All you need is 8 ingredients (plus any toppings of choice) to make these pancakes.
- oat flour (if you don’t have oat flour, you can grind oats in a high speed blender to make some)
- poppy seeds
- baking powder
- flax eggs
- apple cider vinegar
- plant milk of choice
Combine the dry ingredients in a mixing bowl and the wet in another bowl.
Then add your wet ingredients to the dry, mix everything together and your batter is ready!
Preheat your non stick griddle and when it’s hot, drop scoops of batter down and spread slightly with the back of your ladle to help with even cooking.
When the edges are golden brown, they’re ready to flip and cook the other side.
Then enjoy these pancakes garnished with all of your favourite toppings. I love topping pancakes with fresh berries and pure maple syrup.
But you may also use shredded coconut, powdered sugar, chocolate sauce, butter or whipped cream to make it really indulgent.
How long do they keep?
These pancakes taste best when freshly made. However, you may refrigerate leftovers for 1-2 days and reheat in a pan, toaster, or toaster oven when ready to serve.
You may also freeze leftovers in an airtight container for up to 8 weeks. Make sure the pancakes are cooled down to room temperature prior to freezing.
