  • Soak red lentils in water for at least 1 hour. 
  • When ready, puree them together with the dairy-free milk in your blender or food processor until smooth. 
  • In a large bowl mix all dry ingredients (oat flour, coconut sugar, baking powder) together with a whisk. 
  • Add apple cider vinegar and the pureed red lentil-milk batter and mix thoroughly. Now you're ready to make some pancakes. 
  • Heat a non-stick skillet over medium heat. To be on the safe side you can coat it with some oil. 
  • Spoon ¼ - ⅓ cup of the batter onto skillet and flip when bubbles appear and edges harden. Use low-medium heat to make sure that the pancakes and the red lentils in them cooked thoroughly. 
  • Cover the cooked pancakes until you're ready to eat them as pancakes are always better when warm. 
  • When served, use your favorite toppings. In this case I topped them with blueberries and agave syrup.
