Usually I am a planner, I think about the minute details and have things ready in a military fashion. Not today. I wasn’t sure what to do, but I wanted breakfast.
I assembled my ingredients and looked figured a why not throw in as many things as I can think of that will make this pancake bento taste amazing.
Here’s my recipe for Gluten Free Vegan pancakes:
1 1/3 cups gluten free flour
1tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 tablespoon of agave!
1/2 tsp of vanilla
2 tbsp of canola oil
3/4 c + 2 tbsp warm water
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp of nutmeg
1 serving of apple sauce (I used Presiden’t Choice cup)
1 tbsp of cocoa
2 tbsp corn starch
You can eliminate the applesauce or increase the corn starch to 4 tbsp. Mine did turn out a bit runny.
Now that I think about it, I could have used some agar agar or vegan gelatin, or xanthan gum, ah well.
I wish it was more obvious the pancake shape was supposed to be a cat. I couldn’t even fathom filling the whole bento box. I was flabbergasted with just one portion of the box.
The rest of the ingredients are pretty simple:
- peach cut in star shape
- macintosh cut in star shape
- carrots cut into sticks
- tiny ball of Tofutti
- romaine lettuce for decoration
There you have it! My very first attempt. Hope you like it.
Domo arigato! （⌒▽⌒）
