I’m sorry for the lack of posts, school has me pretty busy when I’m not in work. I have more posts coming for you and will be working on that this week! Until then, here are some of my favorite vegan suggestions for Easter weekend!
Carrot Cake Pancakes!
This is how I plan on starting our Easter:
1 cup unbleached white flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp baking powder
1 tbsp raw sugar
1 tbsp coconut oil
1 cup vanilla almond milk
2 tsp lemon juice
1/2 tsp vanilla
1 ½ tsp cinnamon
dash of powdered ginger
¼ tsp nutmeg
1 cup finely shredded carrots
Optional garnish: chopped walnuts
A pre-heated non-stick pan is great here, but if you don’t have one, just lightly oil a skillet and preheat.
Combine dry ingredients and mix well until there are no clumps.
Add wet ingredients and mix until just combined.
Fold in shredded carrots.
Pour about 1/4 cup batter per pancake and cover. Let cook several minutes, just past when it bubbles. The pancake will look slightly cooked on top. Flip, cover, and allow to cook for a couple more minutes until lightly browned. Repeat until batter is used up. Makes about 6 pancakes.
I recommend topping with some toasted chopped walnuts, earth balance buttery spread, and pure maple syrup! Enjoy!
Now those pancakes are going to do a little sweet tooth satisfying, but I think a bit more sugar is expected during these festivities! Chocolate Covered Katie has a fantastic list of recipes to cover you on that:

I will be making this magical PPK recipe:

1/2 cup cashews, soaked in water for at least 2 hours
3/4 cup vegetable broth
1/2 teaspoon turmeric
3/4 teaspoon fine pink Himalayan salt
2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
A big pinch black pepper

Given the chance, there will be a bit more playing in the kitchen this week. Hopefully I’ll have more new recipes for you soon!
