Orange Vanilla Pancakes … and an Announcement!

Vegan Orange Vanilla Pancakes

This recipe was born as I tried to think of accompaniments for my brunch cooking class last month. I thought to myself, who doesn’t love pancakes? And so, I worked to create a fluffy vegan version that would make mouths water. Did I succeed? Ah, heck to the yeah! These pancakes have a lovely texture and are so aromatic (by the orange and vanilla) that you’ll almost be inclined to skip the syrup!

But before I share the recipe with you, I have an announcement to make! I’ve published my first e-book!!!!!!! It’s called Savory Sweet Veg and can be purchased from the following retailers: NookAmazon Kindle, Reader StoreScribdKoboCopiaeSentral and the iBookstore. It contains over 45 super simple veg-centric recipes.


Pick up a copy today! And tell your friends! 😀 Happy Tuesday folks!
