Preparation

To Make the Pancakes:

  1. In a large mixing bowl, use a hand whisk mix together the flour, baking powder, coconut sugar, salt, and vanilla.
  2. In a separate medium bowl vigorously whisk milk, vinegar, and ground flax seeds until the mixture looks foamy.
  3. Add the wet mixture to the dry ingredients and also add the orange juice and oil. Stir until all the ingredients are well combined and there are no big lumps.
  4. Loosely cover the bowl and let the batter rest for 10 minutes (meanwhile you can prepare the mixed berry compote).
  5. Lightly coat a frying pan with coconut oil, and to test the temperature pour a small drop of batter and check if it browns too quickly, then you should lower the temperature.
  6. Pour 1/3 cup of batter for each pancake and cook for 4 minutes approximately, until air bubbles appear on top. Flip and cook for another 3 minutes or so. Keep an eye on the temperature of the pan because we don't want these pancakes to brown too much.

To Make the Berry Compote:

  1. In a medium saucepan over low-medium heat mix the berries with the orange juice and coconut sugar. Mash the fruit with a fork while they are cooking to help release the juices and get a softer compote.
  2. Bring to a simmer and cook for 10 minutes approximately, or until thickened. Remove from the heat and add the orange essential oil.
  3. Let the compote cool at room temperature, transfer to a clean jar with a lid and store in the fridge.
