Vegan Lemon Verbena and Blueberry Pancakes

Yield: 8 pancakes

Just in time for your weekend breakfast is my latest pancake iteration…

I really did eat something besides pancakes last weekend. In fact, I have a delicious black bean salad to post soon and I would post my Vegan Lemon Verbena Meltaway cookies, only I forgot to photograph them before they were all eaten (we had a party Sunday night). I’ll make them again soon, though, as they were so perfect for summer and there is a lot of lemon verbena growing in our garden.

You could certainly substitute some lemon zest, but I wouldn’t know how much; just to taste I suppose. But lemon verbena imparts a little different taste. I think it’s a little earthier somehow and not as astringent (though there’s nothing wrong with a little astringency!).

So, if you can get hold of a lemon verbena plant, I would highly recommend it, as it has many tasty uses. This weekend alone, I made both hot and iced tea with it in addition to the cookies and these pancakes. Plus, I have all kinds of other things in mind, including salad dressings and savory dishes.

For now, though, back to the Vegan Lemon Verbena and Blueberry Pancakes:

  1. i don't even like pancakes but these look divine 🙂

  2. Keri - I Eat Trees

    Wow- I want to come over to your house for pancakes! You always post the most beautiful pancake creations! 🙂

  3. I want it to be lunch time. I need to get off the food blogs right now!

  4. Funny, Shelly. I used to not either. They seemed like a lot of carbs disguised as sort of fluffy nothingness. However, once I learned that I could make them fairly nutritious and a little more toothsome (I think the fluffy ones are over-rated), I've become all about them. So glad they appealed.

    Keri, I wish you could!

    And, Kris, you are stronger willed then me if you are looking at food blogs before lunch!

    Thanks, all!
