Pancakes are an easy breakfast treat. These are enchanted with the nutritional power of beans and full of whole-grain goodness! Try them with the chai-spiced peach compote for an over-the-top experience.


Dry Ingredients

  • 1 cup (120g) whole wheat pastry flour/plain flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt

Wet Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups (269g) cooked white beans or 1 can (425g), rinsed and drained
  • 1 1/2 cups (355 ml) unsweetened non-dairy milk (vanilla, if possible)
  • 1/2 cup (40g) rolled oats
  • 2 tbsp (28ml) olive oil
  • 2 tbsp (26g) sugar or (40g) agave nectar
  • 1 tbsp (14g) ground flaxseed mixed with 2 tbsp (28ml) warm water (this is optional: you can use three tbsp of whisked aquafaba instead)
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

Peach compote ingredients

  • 5 peaches
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • ¾ tsp cardamom
  • ¼ tsp allspice
  • ¼ tsp nutmeg
  • Sweetener of your choice, to taste


  1. To prepare the dry ingredients, mix all the ingredients in a large bowl.
  2. To prepare the wet ingredients, add all the ingredients to a food processor and purée. Add the purée to the dry ingredients. Mix with a wooden spoon until thoroughly combined.
  3. Heat a non-stick pan 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 peach compote: Cut the peaches in half, remove the stone, and remove the peel. Cut into small pieces. Add all of the compote 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.
