My lunchbox really is getting cooler by the day.
Yep, that’s right. Blueberry vanilla pancakes covered in fresh blueberries. Vegan + gluten free!
Side note – I’ve never again enjoyed my daily lunches as much as I did when I sported boxes like this, complete with the matching thermos:
I followed Angela’s recipe for blueberry vanilla bean pancakes. I have never been a big reader of her blog, but I’ve been visiting it more and more recently as I try to incorporate more vegan cooking into my diet. So far it’s been great, and I’m developing trust in her opinion!
What I love most about these pancakes is the lack of added sugar – yet they’re still sweet. The only changes I made were adding sweetened coconut (same amount), using gluten-free flour (Bob’s Red Mill), and adding the blueberries to the batter to melt inside the pancakes – turned out to be a great idea!

Normally pancakes are a big no-no for me. I don’t know what it is about them, but they always make me feel so sick. These are vegan and gluten free, and as I said, only mildly sweet.
Tomorrow I shall top with sliced banana and a teeny bit of maple syrup.
