Sprouted Millet Pancakes

Delicious, fluffy and naturally gluten free pancakes made with sprouted millet flour.

The star ingredient in this recipe is sprouted whole grain millet flour, making them naturally gluten-free, fluffy, and nutritious. Sprouting improves taste and texture, resulting in a sweet, mild, versatile flour. It also aids in digestibility and bioavailability. Sprouted millet pancakes are super quick and simple to make, and they are even toddler approved!

ingredient tips & substitutions

  • Milk – Any kind of milk or milk alternative will work here (oat, soy, almond etc.) 
  • Why add lemon juice or apple cider vinegar to the milk? This creates your own buttermilk which adds tenderness and a rich flavour. You can substitute the milk with store bought buttermilk, but that means picking up an extra ingredient that you only need a small amount of. Making your own buttermilk is extremely simple and it works with any plant-based milk too! Simply add lemon juice or acv to the milk and let it sit for a few minutes. It will thicken and develop lumps, this is normal.
  • Sugar – You can substitute any kind of liquid or granulated sweetener. 
  • Eggs – we haven’t tried making these with a flax or chia egg, but it shouldn’t be a problem. If you try it, let us know!

optional ingredients to add to the batter

Sprouted millet pancakes are delicious on their own, but if you’d like to get creative here are some ideas:

  • Fresh or frozen fruit
  • Chopped nuts
  • Chocolate chips
  • A tbsp of cocoa powder for chocolate pancakes

recipe notes

  • Make sure the pan is fully preheated before adding the batter. Otherwise, you may not have the prettiest first pancake (definitely still delicious though!).
  • These are best enjoyed fresh but will keep in the fridge for a few days. Reheat in a frying pan or toaster.
