Orange Spelt Pancakes

Healthy vegan pancakes made with whole grain spelt flour and no weird additives. These are flavoured and topped with blood oranges to take advantage of their short season, but would be just as good with lemon and berries in the summer months.

Servings 12 pancakes


  • 150 grams / 1 cup whole spelt flour
  • 1 tablespoon coconut sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • 180 ml / 3/4 cup oat or another nondairy milk
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil melted
  • Juice of an orange ~3 tablespoons
  • Zest of an orange


  1. Heat a large pan over medium heat. Melt the coconut oil* in the pan.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, coconut sugar, baking powder, baking soda, vanilla, and salt. In another bowl, mix the milk, coconut oil, orange juice, and zest. Add this to the flour mixture and whisk until just mixed.
  3. Lightly oil the pan if needed. Place about 3 tablespoons of batter (I use a gravy ladle) onto the preheated pan and cook until bubbles start to appear, then flip and cook for another minute or so, until golden. Adjust the heat if required and continue until all of the batter has been used, adding a small amount of coconut oil to the pan each time.
  4. Serve hot with extra oranges, coconut, and maple syrup.


• Cook the first side just until the pancakes can be flipped - if you wait too long they won't rise as nicely. Bubbles should be appearing but the edges won't be darker.
* Melting the oil in the pan you're using for the pancakes is just for convenience.
