How to Make Botanical Vegan Pancakes Inspired by the Colors of Nature

Today I am sharing a recipe for botanical vegan pancakes made with rice milk, buckwheat flour, and egg substitute. I mixed the pancake batter with different powders to give a variety of colors to the pancakes.

The powders I used are:

  • Barley grass
  • Aronia berry
  • Maca
  • Beetroot
  • Rosehip
  • Cacao

For the dark green I used spinach and for the purple colors, I used blueberries.

On top of the pancakes, you find all edible flowers like Indian cherry leaves, cornflowers, calendula, and pansy.  

I decided to create pancakes inspired by the colors of nature. This is how I often start my kitchen creations. Intuitively, I choose from my collection of natural ingredients. I like to create from feeling and I rarely follow recipes. To give you an impression of how to make the pancakes, I have written down the recipe for you. 

Colors are very important in my work. I like to use natural products to achieve abundant colors without compromising on health.

½ tablespoon of the powders for each pancake 

  • Heat a frying pan on a low heat. 
  • Mix the ingredients in a large bowl. 
  • Divide the batter into a few parts and add a little of the powders. Use as much as you would like until you like the color. 
  • Put a bit of vegan butter and 1/8 of the batter onto the pan. Cook for 2 minutes before carefully flipping onto the other side. Cook for another 2 minutes. 
  • Repeat with the rest of the batter.
