Think of these pea-infused savoury pancakes as a blank canvas ready to welcome all sorts of toppings such as smoked fish, a slick of hummus, or even just melted butter. And don’t forget to sprinkle on some additional pea shoots.
Made by grinding up dried chickpeas into a fine powder, garbanzo bean flour contains higher amounts of protein and dietary fibre than typical types of flour such as whole wheat. You can also use it in pizza crusts, flatbreads, crackers, crepes, and muffins.
In food processor or blender, blend together eggs, cottage cheese, oil, flour, garlic, lemon zest, and salt. Pulse in pea shoots and chives.
Heat lightly greased skillet over medium heat. Working in batches, add batter 1/4 cup (60 mL) at a time to pan and cook pancakes until bubbles form on top, about 2 to 3 minutes. Flip and cook until pancakes are browned on bottom and centres are just cooked through, about 1 minute longer. Let pancakes cool on metal rack while you prepare remaining batter. You should get at least 10 pancakes.

This cozy winter drink is perfect for sipping by the fireside. Serve it up with our Maple Pecans. It’s soothingly delicious and creamy served hot or cold. Plant milks We’ve suggested oat milk for an ultimate creamy beverage in our recipe. But any plant milk will be equally delicious. Other possibilities include unsweetened soy, almond, rice, and regular dairy milk products. Iced maple milk affogato A true Italian affogato is vanilla gelato or ice cream doused in espresso. In our version we place 2 scoops of vanilla ice cream in a glass and douse it with our hot Dreamy Maple Sipper. Shave some dark chocolate on top and gratings of nutmeg. Serve with a tall spoon. Delicious!
Here’s the perfect recipe for a fireside snack attack. It’s so easy and can be made ahead and stored in a tightly covered container in the fridge or freezer without losing crispness. Delicious served with a hot toddy. Crunchy munchies Switch out pecans for Brazil nuts or walnuts, or even mixed nuts. The trick is to use raw nuts, as opposed to roasted, as these would become too toasted. Try playing with different spices such as cinnamon or curry powder. These are delicious served on crostini that’s been spread with our Creamy Feta Dip.
