  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp. salt

Wet Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups cooked white beans (or 1 15 oz. can), rinsed and drained
  • 1 1/2 cups non-dairy milk, vanilla if possible
  • 1/2 cups rolled oats
  • 2 Tbsp. olive oil or water
  • 2 Tbsp. agave nectar
  • 1 Tbsp. ground flaxseed mixed with 2 tbsp. warm water
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract

For the Compote

  • 5 peaches
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • 3/4 tsp. cardamom
  • 1/4 tsp. allspice
  • 1/4 tsp. nutmeg
  • Sweetener of your choice, to taste


To prepare the dry ingredients

  1. Mix all the ingredients in a large bowl.

To prepare the wet ingredients

  1. Add all the ingredients to a food processor and puree. Add the puree to the dry ingredients. Mix with a wooden spoon until thoroughly combined.
  2. Heat a nonstick skillet over medium heat. you can cook a few at a time, but make sure not to crowd them in the pan. Cook until you can see a few bubbles on the top and the edges are dry, then flip and cook a few minutes more until the pancake is cooked through.

To prepare the compote

  1. Cut the peaches in half, remove the stone, and remove the peel. If the peaches are ripe enough, the skins will peel off easily. Cut into small pieces.
  2. Add all of the ingredients to a saucepan and bring to a simmer over medium-high heat. Decrease the heat to low, cover, and cook for 15 to 20 minutes until the fruit is cooked through.
