From the Jewish Food Hero Kitchen: Apple and Honey Pancakes

I have never been a pancake fan. In the last year, my daughter started asking for pancakes so I was forced to engage with the world of pancakes. I made a plant based vegan pancake recipe specifically with the high holidays in mind.

These vegan pancakes are fluffy, thick and delicious. They are as tasty as normal egg and oil pancakes but feel much lighter in the body.

What I particularly love about this recipe:

  • Including apple cider vinegar adds a subtle and necessary sour taste to the pancakes
  • Combining oat flour and white whole wheat flour – it feels like if the recipe called for just one or the other, it would be too gummy or too heavy
  • 1 Tbsp of honey adds just the perfect level of sweetness
  • Enjoy the pancakes with apple compote, traditional maple syrup, or raw honey.

These pancakes would be a perfect breakfast or brunch during the days of awe between Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur. After you eat them once, they will become a family favorite.
