- ⅓ cup (80 ml) almond milk, or whole milk
- 1¼ (250 g) medium zucchini, peeled, halved
- 2 large eggs, or 2 Tablespoon flax egg
- ¼ teaspoon salt, optional
- 3 Tablespoons (60 g) date syrup, or honey, or taste
- 1 Tablespoon ground cinnamon
- ¼ teaspoon ground allspice
- 1½ cup (180 g) whole wheat flour
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- Place all ingredients except for flour and baking powder into the Vitamix container in the order listed and secure the lid.
- Start the blender on its lowest speed, then increase to Variable 4. Blend for 5 seconds until ingredients are combined.
- Add the flour and baking powder to the Vitamix container with the wet ingredients, and secure the lid. Pulse 10-12 times on Variable 5 until ingredients are well incorporated.
- Pour batter onto a preheated and lightly greased skillet or griddle and cook until bubbles appear in center of pancakes, then flip and cook for another 2 minutes.
To make a flax "egg," simply combine your flax meal with water in a small container and stir to combine, and allow it to sit for 5 minutes before using.
