Who can resist the amazing smell of warm, fluffy pancakes in the morning? Not even the earliest civilizations! That's right! This griddled family favorite can be easily traced back to ancient Greeks and Romans who sweetened with them with honey; the Elizabethans ate them flavored with spices, rosewater, sherry, and apples. The colonial American settlers referred to them as “johnnycakes”, “hot cakes” or “flapjacks” and were made with buckwheat or cornmeal. There are even recipes noted in Amelia Simmons’s American Cookery, published way back in 1796. This book, containing not one but two pancake recipes, is considered by many historians to be the first all-American cookbook!

This recipe will yield 5-6 medium-sized pancakes, so feel free to multiply ingredients as necessary to increase the number of servings!
Here are the ingredients you will need:
• 1 cup whole wheat or All-purpose Flour
• 1 tablespoon baking powder
• ¼ teaspoon salt
• 1 cup oat milk or dairy-free milk of choice*
• 2 tablespoons olive oil**
• 2 tablespoons maple syrup or sugar of choice
• 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
• 1 tsp blk. Drops
• Extra oil to grease your pan/skillet, if needed
• * For other tasty lactose-free milk options, try: Almond Milk, Soy Milk, or Hemp Milk!
• ** Can also use melted Coconut Oil
1.) In a mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder and salt.
2.) In a separate bowl, combine the milk, oil, maple syrup, vanilla extract, and blk. Drops until completely blended. (If using coconut oil, be aware that it may harden upon contact with cold milk. If this happens, simply warm in the microwave, and continue mixing!)
3.) Pour your liquid milk mixture into the dry mixture. Stir until combined, so only a few lumps remain. If you’d like to mix in any add-ins (like chocolate chips or blueberries), gently fold them into your mixture TIP: Don’t over-mix your batter. It’s ok to leave a few lumps! When finished mixing, let your batter rest for 5 minutes so your pancakes will be nice and fluffy!
4.) Meanwhile, begin to heat your pan over Medium-Low heat. To test if your pan is ready - drip a single drop of water on the pan. If the water sizzles on contact, your pan is hot enough and ready to go!
5.) If you have a sticky-pan, we suggest lightly oiling the surface with extra olive oil, coconut oil, or whatever cooking spray you have handy.
6.) Using a ¼-cup measure, scoop the batter onto the warm skillet. Cook for 2 - 3 minutes on the first side, until you see small bubbles forming on the surface of the pancakes. When the outer edge begins to harden, flip. Cook on the opposite side for 1 - 2 minutes, or until golden brown.
7.) Remove finished pancakes to a separate plate, covering with tin foil to keep warm.
8.) Repeat the process with the remaining batter, adding more oil as needed. Serve and enjoy immediately!
9.) For an added health boost, add a few drops of blk. Drops to your maple syrup or other liquid topping!
And Voila! Enjoy! We hope you enjoy this recipe and have an amazing day! -blk.
blk. Fulvic Drops are *black* because it's full of nutrient-rich fulvic minerals, which are naturally dark in color. When added to water they turn the water black, naturally! There are no additional dyes or colors added!
