Pancakes Three Ways

Lately I've been making pancakes with three different "fillings" each time I make them. On this particular morning it was fresh organic blueberries from Common Ground Co-op, organic bananas (also from the co-op) and organic pecans (I'm out of walnuts and yes the pecans are from the co-op too), and vegan organic fair-trade chocolate chips (from the co-op). The banana walnut/pecan ones are FABULOUS, my absolute favorite and the kids' favorite too, but they like to have variety. A day or two later we used up the rest of the organic strawberries shown (they were on sale at the co-op and we bought eight pints and the kids gobbled them up au naturel before I could freeze some) sliced in the pancakes with shredded coconut. We've tried kiwi, tangerines, and oranges in pancakes in the past. They always have new ideas for pancakes. Dema's birthday is coming up and he asked if I could make pancakes for his party, but I thought that might not work well. He could eat pancakes every day. I usually double the Vegan Brunch Perfect Pancakes, but make them with white whole wheat flour and just a bit of black strap molasses instead of maple syrup for a hint of sweetness (especially with fruit, they don't need to be sweet). I usually serve them with a green smoothie (this day the smoothie was kale, mango, banana, Brazil nuts, flax seeds, and soy milk).
What is your favorite pancake?

I love blueberry!

I went to a restaurant in LA this weekend called The Waffle and they served organic free range eggs and fakin' bacon. First time I've had my beloved fake bacon in a restaurant.

My kids would have been in heaven.

(And ironically, the verification below is the word "diner."

Blueberry is a close second for me, but banana/walnut or pecan blows me away.

I love going to restaurants and getting special veg treats you don't usually find.

Funny about the verification word. Ironically, I have a diner post started a couple days ago, but I haven't finished it yet.

I make gluten free versions and they are always different. Lemon poppyseed, ginger, whatever i have on hand. I always soap a 1/2 cup of quick oats in orange juice and add them to the batter.

I love pretty much all pancakes, and have been doing a lot of experimenting now that I've had to switch to gluten free and sugar free (& vegan--yikes!). ;) Yours look fabulous--blueberry is always a favorite. And thanks so much for having my blog in your blogroll! Hope you'll hop over to my World O Blogs page and leave a reminder if you're not yet on there, too, so I can return the favor. :)
