I’ve met pancakes for the first time during a study holiday in England, many years ago ☺ Since then they have become a very special way to start a day.

Pancakes represent in our family a really “Special” breakfast. Generally, I prepare them with my children, on Sunday mornings, when there’s no school and the awakening is more gradual …. This is a vegan version, accompanied by the first strawberries of the season and some mint leaves. I will certainly publish many other variations … Meanwhile try this and tell me if you like 😉

Ingredients (for 8 pancakes):

  • flour 2,9 oz
  • ½ tblsp brown sugar
  • 1 tblsp bakin powder
  • 1 pinch of salt
  • oat drink 3,5 oz
  • strawberries 7 oz
  • mint leaves
  • concentrate apple juice (or maple syrup)
  • extra virgin olive oil


  1. Mix together flour, sugar, baking powder and salt.
  2. Add oat drink and mix the ingredients.
  3. Wash and cut strawberries and keep them aside.
  4. Heat 1 tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil in a non-stick pan.
  5. Pour 4 tablespoons of mixture and wait for bubbles on the surface; turn pancakes and cook them on the other side.
  6. Serve them with strawberries, mint leaves and apple juice.
