Some holiday’s seem to be begging for some fun food recipes. In feel like St. Patrick’s day is one of them so I decided to create a fun recipe of my own. In our usual style, the requirements were that it has to be healthy, delicious and obviously vegan. I am happy to say that the recipe turned out to be a complete success! Make this one as a surprise for your loved one(s) on St. Patrick’s for a fun little guilt-free breakfast. I’m actually starting to like oven cakes better than pancakes because they take less time and there is less clean up!
1 ½ Cups Whole Wheat Flour
3 Teaspoons Baking Powder
2 Teaspoons Spirulina
1 1/3 Cups unsweetened Almond Milk
1 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract
1 Mashed up Banana
1 Tablespoon Avocado oil (olive oil should work fine too)
1/3 Cup Chocolate Chips
Preheat the oven to 375⁰F. Mix together the dry ingredients (the whole wheat flour, baking powder and spirulina). Pour in the almond milk, vanilla extract, avocado oil and a mashed up banana and mix everything together. Without mixing too much, add in the chocolate chips and stir it in just a little bit. Put a small amount of oil into a large cast iron pan to make sure nothing sticks. Pour the entire mixture into the cast iron pan and put it into the oven for 15-17 minutes. Test with a fork to make sure the center is cooked and take it out of the oven. Serve with some maple syrup and Earth Balance vegan butter for extra deliciousness. Have a happy St. Patrick’s Day!
