Blueberry Flax Pancakes

MMMM Raw Vegan Pancake Love on a Saturday Morning!! MY goodness, this was perfect! They were so super good and pretty simple to make. I woke up early, so these were almost ready by the time Michael woke up, perfect timing!! I love that so many foods can be easily made raw! These were so satisfying and fun to make & eat!

Blueberry Flax Pancakes recipe from Rawmazing

1/2 C flax seeds (ground)
1 C flax seeds (not ground)
3 T coconut oil melted
1/2 C agave
1/2 C water
1 C blueberries
1/4 C coconut

Mix all ingredients. Dehydrate at 145 for one hour, flip and then dehydrate for 30 minutes at 114.

Marisa’s Tips: I would suggest using a coffee/spice grinder for the flax seeds. It grinds them in seconds!! Plus it makes so much less of a mess than pulling out the Vita-mix or a food processor!

Also for the coconut I used dried coconut (ground in the coffee grinder as well) and found the batter a little runny, so I doubled the amount.

Totally drizzle with maples syrup! This made them even more wonderful!!

    It would be helpful to newbies to have a link to what you mean by “dehydrate at 145 for one hour.” Some of us, especially in summer, like to eat more raw food but I have never used anything that dehydrates. Help!

      Hi Tess,

      I can totally appreciate that! I use a dehydrator to mix things things up in my raw eating. If you wanted to you can either use an oven at its lowest temp., keep the door open if you want or turn on and off to make sure it does not get too hot. But if you are looking to eat more raw food, I would say fresh is best. Dehydrated food is yummy and a fun treat but is def. not the majority of my diet. I would say have as many hydrating foods as possible; like salads, zucchini pasta, raw soups, juices, blended smoothies, etc. I only bought a dehydrator when I was more committed to this life style and I thought it would be fun to have. It is great to be able to make things like your own dried fruit, cookies, fruit roll up and kale chips, but not necessary at all. I hope that helps. Of course if you have any more questions or comments I would love to help out.

      All the best,
      Marisa

    I have been vegan almost 4 years but just venturing into Raw foods. I am going to attempt these tomorrow, using my oven as you suggested (since I don’t have a dehydrator). Will it still take an hour? How can I tell when they’re done?
    BTW, is the coconut in the recipe already doubled, or do you recommend doubling it to 1/2 cup.
    Thanks,
    William

      Hi William,

      Awesome to it all! I think you will enjoy Raw foods as it is so much fun and adds so much more to our vegan diets!

      This recipe was super yummy!
      I doubled the coconut so that it was 1/2 cup dried coconut. I have never made these in the oven so I am not 100% sure – but does your oven temp go down that low? If not maybe crack the door open every now and then just to keep the temp down. In the oven I doubt they will take the full hour. You need to check and see if they are becoming solidified. They started off like a batter and then became a pancake…. But you still have to flip them to dry out the other side as well.

      I hope that helps!! Let me know what you think!
      Happy Eating 🙂
      Marisa

        Hi, again. Thanks for clarifying on the coconut. I didn’t get to make them yet, but i’m really looking forward, and will report back. My oven temp goes down to 95. Any correlation between that and dehydrator setting?

    WOW!!! SO cool William! Most ovens don’t dip below 200! You dont need a dehydrator ever now 🙂 It should be the same, just use my recipe as I have it, but in your oven! Let me know how that comes out!! So cool!!

    Thank you! I never even knew my oven had such a low temperature or that I would ever use it. That is cool! I will definitely let you know how the pancakes turn out.

    Hi, Marisa. We made these for breakfast this am. I “cooked” them for 1.5 hours at 115F, flipping after 1 hour. I’m not sure if they were as done as they’re supposed to be (how do you know?), but they were still super-good! I must also admit we cut the agave down to 1/4 cup and may cut out even more next time, since they probably are decadent enough just using maple syrup on top.

    Awesome William!! They will never have the texture of a regular pancakes, so its hard to tell when they are down….just great to have them be solidified. But so happy you liked them! Great idea about cutting down on the agave! I’m sure you are right, with the maple syrup you have enough sweetener!
