Oh the things I was out of when I created this dish: no milk and no eggs, but we wanted pancakes, dangit! I used flax meal to make up for the protein in the egg (a vegan trick) and substituted orange juice for milk. The result was pancakes bursting with citrus flavor. It's a new favorite in our house! Serve with butter and/or maple syrup.

  • Heat a lightly oiled griddle over medium-high heat, or an electric griddle to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Drop batter by large spoonfuls onto the griddle and cook until bubbles form and the edges are dry, 3 to 4 minutes. Flip and cook until browned on the other side, 2 to 3 minutes. Repeat with remaining batter.

This has got to be the weirdest pancake recipe I have ever come across on allrecipes! Having said that I was surprised I did not detect the flaxseed meal at all!!! The orange taste was not overwhelming it was just a very small hint of bright citrusy flavor. I will have to remember this recipe if I'm ever out of eggs! Read More

I used a cup of white flour and a cup of whole wheat but otherwise followed the recipe as written. Ate them with butter and syrup and they are quite good. Read More

7.29.18 These pancakes had a good rise but there definitely was an aftertaste of baking powder. Pancake texture is somewhat dense not fluffy and light but the orange flavor came through well. Read More

When I saw this I knew I had to give it a go. I had a bunch of OJ just sitting around not getting used up so I when I saw this it was perfect. So easy and so tasty. I am not much of the vegan way to eat things but I do enjoy flax seed and all the combination was very good with pure maple syrup. The orange taste is very light but gives it a nice touch. Will definitely make again if I fall into the OJ surplus again. Thanks Read More

It is fine! Although you must be careful because the first time I made them, they were crispy, not like pancakes at all ?? Read More
