    Unsweetened Flaxmilk + Protein Buy It
  • ¼ Cup applesauce

  • ¼ Cup molasses

  • 1 Tablespoon olive or canola oil (may omit for oil-free)

  • Cooking spray

  • Toppings of choice, to serve


For Pancakes

  1. In a mixing bowl, whisk flour, sugar if using, spices and salt. Make a well in the center and add Good Karma Flaxmilk, applesauce, molasses, and oil. Lightly mix with a spoon, then stir into dry ingredients to form a batter. Let sit a few minutes while warming up a large pan or griddle coated with cooking spray over medium heat

  2. When the pan is warmed, scoop approximately ¼ -⅓cup  onto the pan. Cook until bubbles begin to form, then flip and cook until golden brown, about 1-2 minutes per side. Thin out batter as needed with additional plant milk. Repeat with remaining batter, re-coating the pan with cooking spray as you go. Keep warm on a cookie sheet in a 200 F oven if desired, and serve with desired toppings. Enjoy!

For Waffles

  1. Use the batter as shown above, or, for a more traditional outer-crispness, increase baking powder to 1 Tablespoon, decrease Flaxmilk to 1 ¼ cups, and include 1-2 Tablespoons sugar and 2 Tablespoons oil.

  2. Preheat the waffle maker according to the manufacturer’s directions. When heated, scoop ⅓ to ½ cup of batter depending on the size of your waffle maker onto the iron. Cover and cook according to appliance directions. Gently remove when ready with a fork.
