To a large mixing bowl, add flaxseed and water and let set for a minute or two. Then add oil, maple syrup, baking soda, baking powder, and salt and whisk to combine. Add almond milk and whisk again until well combined.
Lightly grease your griddle with oil of choice and pour 1/4 cup measurements of the batter onto the griddle. There should be 6 pancakes (as original recipe is written // adjust if altering batch size). (If your batter looks too thick, thin it with a little more almond milk.) Flip when bubbles appear in the middle and the edges turn slightly dry, being careful not to burn.
*If you don’t have spelt flour, I would recommend using this combination instead of the amounts I recommend: 3/4 cup whole wheat flour + 1/4 cup oat flour (amounts as original recipe is written // adjust if altering batch size).
*TIP: To make sure you have your sweetness/ flavor right, do a mini test pancake before the big batch. Just cook 1 Tablespoon-sized pancake, sample, and then adjust as needed!
