Why Vegan Pancakes Are Better than OG Pancakes

Image via GIPHY

I know. Triggering title. Bold statement. You might have even clicked just to see what nonsense vegan people have gotten into now.

But before you threaten to tar and feather me because I added the word “vegan” before your childhood favorite, first let me explain something: I am not vegan. I actually rarely eat vegan. But I'll tell you what: when I do, I like it. A lot. And my body feels pretty dang good too.

Ever since becoming a father, I have been even more HYPER aware of what I put into my body. Because my son will do as he sees, not as I say. So if I want him to be conscious about what he puts in his body, I need to be.

And you know what? People go vegan for a myriad of valid reasons.

But I'm not here to preach about that. No, sir. That is NOT my fight.

No, I'm just dipping my toes into the vegan pool with a recipe I believe will turn any skeptic into a vegan pancake fiend. Seriously. They are that good.

But WHY Vegan?

First of all, eating vegan isn't always a choice. Roughly 2% of world's population has an egg allergy that doesn't allow them to enjoy the incredibly versatile food housed in a glorious white shell.

“2%?!? That's a small number!” Well, is 150 MILLION PEOPLE a small number? Because that's 2% of the world population, amigo. And sure, the vast majority of those people are children, and studies show that 70% of them will outgrow this allergy by the age of 16… but that doesn't change the fact that the allergy exists, and it ranges from mild to severe, and can even be life-threatening.

That Sucks and All… But PANCAKES?!

Image via GIPHY

Listen, I know. Pancakes are gloriously fluffy and moist and stack beautifully… and maybe your parents even turned them into Mickey Mouse or a gray, fat-headed alien just to make eating them all that much more fun.

Who doesn't have a deeply personal and joyful memory attached to pancakes? Seriously, think about it. EVERYONE DOES.

So am I here to stomp on those memories and kill nostalgia for the fun of it?

No, I'm here to tell you a secret: Vegan Pancakes Taste Like Real Pancakes. Some might argue that they're better. And I believe that, as long as you do them right... they absolutely do.

You're Gonna Have to Prove It

I know, that's why I'm writing this article! Keep up, we have a lot to talk about.

First, let's look at the ingredients of REGULAR Pancakes:

  • Flour
  • Baking Soda
  • Salt
  • Egg
  • Milk
  • Butter
  • Sugar

Flour, baking soda, and salt aren't going anywhere. And you don't have to say bye-bye to sugar (but I will recommend alternatives you'll find hard to argue with).

Eggs, milk, and butter are obviously not vegan. So these need modifications.

Don't Touch My Butter

You don't have to convince me that butter is nectar of the gods. Hell, my mother and I used to dip sticks of butter in sugar and eat them. We called them “Shame Sticks”. I'm not even kidding. I'm from the Deep South, there are weirder things on sticks or deep fried.

So, what's a butter connoisseur like myself supposed to use instead?

Well, there isn't one way to butter this proverbial cat. Depending on whether you're baking, cooking, or spreading, butter alternatives will vary.

But since we're talking about cooking some pancakes and then slathering some yummy butter all over them, lets talk about options:

For the Batter:

  • Margarine – a bit dated and not the healthiest option, but a 1-to-1 ratio will work
  • Shortening – same as above, except even greasier
  • Extra Virgin Olive Oil – a bit wetter, and with an earthier taste
  • Grapeseed Oil – similar to EVOO, but a more neutral taste

For the Slather:

  • Coconut Butter – seriously, this is an EXCELLENT replacement
  • Vegan Butter – Miyoko's Vegan Butter is legit the greatest butter replacement I've ever tasted
  • Homemade Honey Vegan Butter

(Sidenote: You can use any of the slather butters in the batter as well. Personally, I use homemade Vegan Honey Butter in the batter, and Miyoko's to spread on the flapjacks.)

And before you jump to any “but they can't taste as good as butter” conclusions, give them a taste. I guarantee you will be shocked.

And now that you're starting to see the light, let's move on to…

To Milk, or Not to Milk?

This one takes less convincing. Because people have been putting milk substitutes into their coffees for years. I remember when soy was the only option at Starbucks, in the dark years before almond milk. Now, there are so many it can be a bit dizzying.

And now it's common to skip the dairy and use cashew milk on your cereal, or some macadamia nut milk in your smoothie.

So the idea of swapping regular milk out for, say, almond, in a recipe... isn't the most egregious offense you'll make all day.

But Why Replace Milk?

Well, even though milk is PACKED with nutrients, it can be hard to digest, and lactose intolerances are on the rise.

So, if you just want to avoid stomach issues, or need to avoid dairy, make sure your replacement has plenty of vitamin d, calcium, and protein.

But I'm Sick of Soy Milk!

Same, my friend. SAME. But there are so many alternatives to choose from now!

Almond milk is my personal standby, but you can do soy, cashew, macadamia, walnut, and even oat milk (which is VERY popular in the UK, and for good reason).

So, give any of these a shot, and you'll know in one sip that you're not on the wrong path. And neither will your vegan pancakes!

Take Anything But My Eggs!

Look, I eat eggs like it's my day job. Over-easy with toast, scrambled with potatoes, hard-boiled with a sprinkle of salt… I love me some eggs.
But it's not like I take a bite into a pancake and say, “oh man, that egg flavor really ties the whole experience together. Without it, pancakes are trash!”

Eggs, in the case of most baking and cooking, are used for binding dry ingredients and supporting the cook (by providing structure, leavening, and a rich flavor). And guess what? Lots of other things do that too!

But Egg Replacers Are WEIRD

And I totally agree.

Ener-G Egg Replacer Guide

Ener-G Egg Replacer has been around for ages. And I swear I saw that box in my grandparents' pantry behind the Grape Nuts and Dried Prunes. Well, our grandparents may have been onto something. Because Ener-G has been around long enough for people to know that It works. Still though, it's not the most appetizing replacement.

Same goes for silken tofu, or a combo of baking soda and vinegar – which could outright massacre the delicious flavor of your vegan pancakes. But, if done in the right quantities, baking soda and apple cider vinegar can make for an excellent egg replacement.

Which One Wouldn't Make Me Want to Hurl?

Weird flex, but I get where you're coming from.

In concept, these next two don't sound appetizing, but the work beautifully.

Flegg is ground flaxseed and water. Despite the name, this mimics the attributes of an egg very well. Same with Chia Seeds in hot water. Once the seeds puff up and create an egg-like goo, you'll know you're on the right path. Both do a bang-up job of providing structure, leavening, and a rich moistness to the pancakes.

But What Do YOU Use?

Me? Well, I prefer to use two of the most universally loved foods in all of existence: Applesauce and Bananas.

That's right. They do the trick AND add a subtle flavor that works perfectly with pancakes. Just think about Apple Cinnamon pancakes, or sliced bananas on top of your flapjack stack. Great, right? Well, add those flavors INSIDE the pancake, why don't ya?

Have I gotten your attention yet? Are you starting to see that replacing eggs could actually ENHANCE the flavor of your pancakes? Because mashing up a banana or tossing in some yummy applesauce will lift regular pancakes to new heights.

Now That I Have Your Attention

Are you starting to thinkthat making pancakes vegan ISN'T blasphemous? And could actually make for more a delicious result?
Then you're not an insane person, congrats!

So, let's talk about the benefits:

Kid-Friendly Isn't a 4-Letter Word

Your child will not only love vegan pancakes, but also you can have a conversation about health, cooking, and how the world is full of magical things like flegg which, though it sounds like you're clearing your throat when you say it, represents the sheer versatility in both in the natural world and in the kitchen.

Who Doesn't Like Moist Pancakes?

Ever had a pancake that was so flavorless and dry that you wished you'd ordered literally anything else on the menu?

So have I, and so has everyone else. BUT, if you're using applesauce or mashed bananas, you'll NEVER run into that problem.

And I'm even a stickler for slightly crispy edges on my pancakes. You can achieve that crisp AND have a nice gooey center with a vegan replacement for eggs.

No Rumblin' in the Tumblin'

Who hasn't said the phrase, “I think I had too much dairy”, while holding their stomach like the actors in a Pepto-Bismol commercial? Stop lying, Frank – yes you have.

Removing dairy from pancakes will remove your hand from your stomach, or it will keep it there and move in a circular path as you murmur “Yummmm” to everyone around you. Soon, you will all be “Yum”-ing together like a group of yogis Om-ing their way to bliss.

But now, before we talk about the recipe... let's talk about sugars:

The Sweetner, the Bettner?

strawberries and a spoonful of sugar on a wooden table

Like I said earlier, you CAN continue using traditional white sugar. Or even replace it with brown sugar. But if you're anything like me, too much sugar can make you crash at random points of the day.

For the most part, I try to avoid sugar throughout the day. I fail regularly, but at least I try. But for me, avoiding refined sugars or sugars high in glucose is important.

And I suspect if you or a loved one is diabetic or has a high blood glucose level, you're probably not eating pancakes that often, anyway.

Well, buckle up, buddy, because you can get on this vegan pancake train with no fuss!

The Battle of the Sweeteners

By all means, use refined white sugars or brown sugar in your vegan pancakes. But first you should know this:

Sugar is a carbohydrate. And like all foods, the higher the carb count, the sooner you'll feel hungry for more. It's deceptive like that. Your body craves carbs, but if you turbo-load with empty sugar, your body will be asking for more of that sweet stuff VERY SOON.

And unless you want to have pancakes for every meal (more power to ya!), there are ways to watch your intake while maintaining a natural, delicious, sweetness to your vegan pancakes.

But You're No Scientist!

No, but scientists DID create the Glycemic Index (GI) which measures how much carb-rich food raises your blood glucose level. This is VERY important for people with blood glucose issues, but it's also important for anyone to know if they care about what they are putting into their body.

For example, refined white sugar has a GI of 60. And the GI goes from 0-100 – the higher the number, the more it affects your blood glucose level. So 60 is up there with the worst offenders.

So Use Honey Then, Ya Dummy

I would be glad to, except that honey is a 58 on the GI.

So, sure, it's better. But not that much better.


Image via GIPHY

Calm down, you're scaring me.

There's a silver lining to it all. And the magical replacement I'd recommend to everyone is... Agave Nectar.

Nectar of the Gods?

pouring syrup on the bowl

Agave Nectar is like syrup, and tastes just as sweet, IF NOT SWEETER. But it has a GI of 19. The sugar is more complex, and the glucose levels are crazy low.

Are You Talking About "Healthy" Sugar?

Let's not go that far.

Agave nectar's sugar components are 70-90% fructose, in comparison to honey's 40%. And while that's better for your blood glucose levels, it's not great for ailments that can come with high-fructose sugars, like obesity, fatty liver, and memory loss.

That may sound dramatic, but the moral of the story? Use sugars sparingly no matter what. No one sugar is ASTRONOMICALLY better than another, health-wise. BUT, the differences between them are important. And for me, I don't intake much high-fructose sugar, so Agave Nectar in my Vegan Pancakes makes for the flavor I want, and doesn't push my sugar intake over the edge.

Do your own research based on your body. But for me, Agave Nectar is unbeatable.

But Enough of the Science!

Yes! Let's get on to the cooking and the eating. I mean, that's why you're here, isn't it?

Now that we've talked about WHY vegan pancakes rule, why certain replacements are better/more flavorful than others... Let's talk about recipes!

There are dozens of great vegan pancake recipes online. Personally, I make a modified version this recipe:

My take on it is this:

  • 1 cup almond milk (Califia Farms Almondmilk)
  • 1 tsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1.5 tbsp Agave Nectar
  • pinch of salt
  • 2 tbsp mashed bananas
  • 1 tbsp vegan butter (Miyoko's Vegan Butter or Homemade Honey Vegan Butter)
  • 1 tbsp of coconut oil
  • cinnamon to taste

First, Make the “Buttermilk”

First things first, you gotta mix the “milk” with the “butter” and the “egg”.

So, mix the almond milk and the Apple cider vinegar, stir it well, and let it sit.

Sounds weird, but trust me. This will work like a charm.

Mix It Up

In a big ol' mixing bowl, mix the dry stuff: flour, baking powder, and salt. Whisk it together for a more seemless combination. It will make for less clumping when you cook. Make those 'cakes even, you heathen!

Dry No More

Add the wet ingredients to the dry. The agave nectar, bananas, butter, and "buttermilk". But not the coconut oil. Save that for the pan!

Once you've combined everything, mix it all up. But this mixture can, and should, be clumpy. Over-mixing this part can make for some weird structural issues with your vegan pancakes. So let it look weird. Let weird be cool again.

measuring cups

Once you're done, put the mixture in a pourable container. This will make life SO MUCH easier when you're trying to make identical pancakes on the frying pan. Even if you're not into precision like me, it'll just make for less mess, less clean up, and easier transfer to the pan.

Bring It to the Skillet!

Put a dollop of coconut oil on a pan, melt it on medium heat. Coconut oil is a high heat oil, so it's great for this. And even better, the delicious flavor will only make the product that much better. I mean, a coconut and banana flavor combo in itself is unbeatable.

Pour the mixture from your measuring cup onto the hot skillet. I recommend only doing two at a time as you can make space for spreading. At this point, BE PATIENT. Cook until you start seeing bubbles rise up and pop at the top, creating little craters along the surface. Now, sprinkle cinnamon on the top and wait for the edges to look a little cooked.

Take a peek on the underside. If it's golden brown, flip those bad boys over. This side takes significantly less time to cook. About 30-60 seconds.

Stack Like Your Life Depends On It

Image via GIPHY

Now you have a lovely batch of vegan pancakes packed with flavor but without all the baggage of dairy.

And they're gonna look just like the real thing. So what I need you to do next is act just like they are real.

That's right: Don't be shy with the vegan butter, the syrup (or nectar, or honey), and load it up with fresh fruit and chocolate chips if you're feeling particularly into yourself that day. Because foods like pancakes are about celebrating flavor and having fun with your meal.

And that's the other big secret: vegans care about flavor too. And these recipes, for my dollar, have more flavor, are more filling, and don't feel like fifteen pounds of flour in my stomach. No, these vegan pancakes are the real deal. And though I am no scientist, I am a dad.

And I wouldn't feed my kid anything less than the best.

That's exactly what these are. To me at least.

Now stop being afraid of the idea of eating vegan, and live a little!

easy pancake recipe

In a hurry? If you are looking for a good, filling breakfast there is none easier and faster than pancakes. A few minutes on the griddle and they are ready to go. What about the mix though? You don’t have time to run to the store when you wake up craving some pancakes. What can you do?

If you planned ahead, you could have made your own pancake mix. There are simple recipes for dry mix and batter mix pancakes ready to go whenever you are, and we have them for you here. We will give you the recipes, and you can make the batter whenever you want.

Dry mix, batter mix, whatever your fancy. With a shelf (or refrigerator life) that extends past all the store bought boxes and without all the extra chemicals!

Read on to find your favorite!

Why Make Pancake Mix?

pancake mix

Homemade pancake mix isn’t a very common thing for most on-the-go Americans. We find it easier just to grab a box of the “ just add water” mixes in the store and call it a day.

There are healthier options though, and making your own pancake mix is not that difficult.

Health is the main reason for making your own mix. You will have the benefit of knowing exactly what is in your mix, and how much. You can add other ingredients to spice things up a bit, or prepare them as-is to create a delicious and easy breakfast meal for the family.

Having the mix made ahead of time saves you the hassle when you need to wake up and get ready to go to work or school. A little preparation now will go a long way towards having a filling and complete breakfast down the road.

Another reason to make your own pancake mix is that you have an easy pancake recipe sitting in your fridge or in the cupboard. This mix will be as large as you want to make it, which means you aren’t limited to the amount that comes in a box or in a bag from the store shelf.

You also know how fresh the ingredients are and how old the mix is. You don’t have to rely on some minimum wage clerk properly rotating the stock or pulling outdated items before you get to them.

You will have a fresh batch of pancake mix to use over and over again. At least until it is time to make more.

How to Make Pancake Mix

making pancake

The pancake mix comes in two steps. The first step is the dry mix recipe. You will mix all of the dry ingredients and store in an airtight container. The dry mix will have a shelf life of four to six months.

When you are ready to make the pancakes, you will move to step two. The wet ingredients will be added to the mix to make the batter. Once the batter is mixed, you will be ready to cook your pancakes in a pan, on a flat iron or a griddle.

The batters are also useful to create waffles. If you have a waffle iron, you can use the batter to make crispy on the outside waffles that are airy and fluffy on the inside. The choice is yours, pancakes or waffles, or both if you prefer.

Making More Mix

pouring pancake mix

Each recipe below will make approximately six pancakes. If you want the ability to make more, you will need to make more mix. As long as you keep the ingredients multiplied by the same conversion number, you won’t have any problems.

For example, if you want to be able to make 18 pancakes, you will multiply all of the dry ingredients by three. When you go to make the pancakes, you will use 1/3rd of the dry mix with the wet ingredients.

If you want to make them all, multiply the wet ingredients by three as well.

Top 4 Easy Pancake Recipes

The top 4 easy pancake recipes are here! Each recipe will be broken down into the two steps (one for dry mix the other for batter made with the wet ingredients). 

It is important that when storing your dry mix that you use an airtight container. You should also label the container with the type of mix created and the date it was made on. Each mix will have a shelf life of four months. If undisturbed and kept away from heat and moisture you can extend the storage to six months.

Perfect Pancake Maker Customer Review

perfect-pancake-maker-tvPancake making is an art that everyone in my family seems to have mastered but me, so I’ll willingly take all the help I can get. I was naturally a little wary about buying a pancake device (it feels so much like cheating!), but I’m glad I did. Originally, it took a moment to get the hang of how the perfect pancake pan works, but once you master it, you’ll be happy you did.

The Perfect Pancake Pan has four indentations for you to dispense pancake batter into, which is so convenient because I don’t have to worry about batter slipping around during the flipping process. The indentations are pretty small though, so you’re not getting a huge pancake – a downside easily averted by how quickly you’ll make a large quantity of pancakes. It’s really light and easy to flip over with one hand, so you won’t accidentally burn yourself hoisting it over if you forget to wear an oven mitt.

perfect-pancake-maker-reviewsAlthough it’s straightforward and easy to use, you still have to carefully calculate pancake cooking time—if you flip it over too soon and too slow, the batter might leak out the sides. If you do it too late… well, I hope you like burnt pancakes. The ideal cooking time is about 45 seconds on the indented side, and about 50 seconds to one minute on the flat side. It’s important to allow a few extra seconds to compensate for the coolness of the unheated side, but be mindful not to burn your pancakes!

Realistically, it’s not all that easy to burn pancakes in the perfect pancake pan—it evenly distributes heat without it getting extremely hot, so if you’re paying attention, the burn risk is low. The surface is non-stick, too, so pancakes easily slip out when they’re done. The unit also works excellently for making mini crepes and cooking eggs. The nonstick surface ensures it washes clean like a dream, so you can say goodbye to scrubbing pancake batter from the sides of your pans.

The perfect pancake pan lives up to its name in delivering perfectly fluffy, evenly cooked pancakes every time. It’s available for only $19.95 with an additional $7.95 for shipping and handling to most locations. If you’re dysfunctional at making pancakes, this is a purchase you won’t regret, but if you do, there’s a 30 day money back guarantee to protect you.

3 Pancake Ideas for Dinner

Pancakes are a perennial favorite at breakfast and a fun way to mix it up at the dinner table. Even when served as a treat at dinner, traditional pancakes can quickly lose their luster when they are always served the same way. Here are three fun ways to incorporate pancakes into dinner in unexpected ways with unique flavors.

jalapeno-pepperA Little Spice Tastes So Nice: Cornbread Jalapeno Pancakes

If you like your cornbread as much as you enjoy your pancakes, try cornbread jalapeno pancakes. Try them with butter and syrup like traditional pancakes for a sweet treat, or smother them with your favorite chili for a hearty and savory meal. Many recipes for cornbread pancakes are available online, but a rule of thumb is to replace half of the flour with cornmeal and reduce the sugar to a tablespoon or two. One cornbread pancake recipe you can add jalapenos to can be found here.

pancake-slidersThey Don’t Have to be Flat: Pancake Sliders

Love the pancake flavor, but want that fun bite-sized feel? Try pancake sliders. Pour traditional pancake mix into a muffin tin and bake until cooked throughout – about 15 minutes. Slice in half like a biscuit; add eggs, bacon and your favorite toppings, such as jam or syrup. Your breakfast-inspired sliders will be a hit with the kids or those on the go.

For the Kid in All of Us: Pancake Roll-Ups

Whether you prefer sweet or savory pancakes, another fun way to serve them is in roll-up form. Prepare your choice of sweet or savory pancake recipe and cook normally. For a sweet version, roll the pancakes around your favorite breakfast sausage or your preference of bacon or other meat.

Include eggs, syrup or jam to complete the flavors. For a savory pancake roll-up, prepare wheat or other less sweet pancakes and roll around your choice of sausage. Experiment with your choice of condiments, from mustard to hot jams. For vegetarians, roll up a wheat pancake coated in your favorite savory hummus with capers, roasted red peppers and crunchy romaine lettuce.

Pancakes are a fun and versatile food. With a little creativity and willingness to experiment, pancakes can be the foundation for many meals. There is no reason they should be relegated to just breakfast anymore. Remember that you can take your meal from sweet to savory by experimenting with different grains other than refined flour.

5 Tasty Pancake Fillings

Pancakes are perfect for breakfasts or suppers, meals or snacks. They can be sweet and decadent or healthy and filling depending on the ingredients that are used. Plain pancakes can become boring over time. However, various shapes, and various fillings, such as the five below, can give them new life.

chocolate-chipsSome fillings can be mixed into the pancake batter before it is fried on a griddle. One filling that is a favorite of children in particular is chocolate chips. For the sweetest taste, the cook should choose milk chocolate chips. While regular-sized chips may be used, mini morsels are more pleasing to the eye, are a better size for thin pancakes and do not make as much of a mess on a hot griddle.

Another filling meant to be mixed in before the pancake is fried is fresh or frozen fruit. Most people opt for berries because they are so colorful. Often, fresh fruit is used during the summer months when it is on hand and naturally sweet; frozen fruit is the easiest choice during the winter. Blueberries are a quintessential favorite as seen here.

apple-nut-fillingA spin-off of a berry filling is an apple and nut filling, which is particularly tasty during the autumn months. Although any type of apple can be used, most prefer to choose a naturally sweet or tart apple such as a Braeburn, Fuji or Granny Smith. These should be finely chopped and folded into the batter along with chopped walnuts or pecans. This will create a sweet and hearty meal.

Other fillings can be added to the pancake after it has been fried. These pancakes are often rolled around the filling. The easiest and most child-friendly option is to spread jam or fruit preserves on the pancake and finish by rolling it. For a dessert-like look, it can be topped with a dollop of whipped cream.

bananasFor a more grown-up approach, the cook could roll thin crepe-like pancakes around a banana that has been cut in half vertically. She could sprinkle brown sugar on top of the banana or make a rich spiced sauce with cream, cinnamon nutmeg and butter. An example of this is shown in this recipe.

3 Ways to Spruce Up Your Pancakes

You followed the recipe perfectly, but something is wrong. You’ve tried all of your grandmother’s tricks to get the perfect light, fluffy pancake and still they seem tough and chewy. Don’t worry, it happens even to the best of us. Here are few tips that can help to make any pancake a hit at the breakfast table.

pancakes-spruce-upThe first tip is something that most people may never think about. That is, to beat your egg-whites. Before mixing your wet ingredients together, separate the egg-yolks from the egg-whites. Mix the yolks in with the other wet ingredients, but save the egg-whites in a separate bowl. Beat the egg-whites until stiff peaks form.

After you have combined the other wet and dry ingredients, gently fold the egg-whites into the batter. Start cooking right away to get the fluffiest pancakes possible. If you do not have an egg-beater, you could also try replacing some of the liquid in your recipe with a carbonated beverage. Carbonated water, beer, or ginger ale are all good options, and the carbonation will add fluffiness.

Another trick is to exercise patience. After flipping your pancakes and smelling that wonderful aroma, you may be sorely tempted to press them down to force them to cook faster. DO NOT press down your pancakes while they cook. It will not help them cook any faster than usual. In fact, this will counteract any measures you have taken to make them fluffy and you will end up with rubbery flapjacks.

pancake-deliciousNow that you have light and fluffy pancakes, the only problem is keeping them warm until you can eat them. No one likes a cold hotcake. If you cannot serve them in small portions as they finish cooking, you can keep them warm by placing them in the oven. Place them in a single layer on a baking sheet, making sure the oven is warm but not too hot. Never cover or stack them, as the steam will make them soggy.

If you follow these guidelines you should have no problem creating the perfect pancake every time. To improve your cakes even more, you could try getting a little creative. For starters, why not oil some metal cookie cutters and pour the batter into these to make shaped pancakes? Or maybe you could experiment with adding chocolate chips, or fruits to your batter. The possibilities are limitless, so don’t be afraid to experiment.
