  • In a bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
  • In another bowl, add the nondairy milk and apple cider vinegar. Let it stand for a couple of minutes, then add the flaxmeal and water and whisk well. Add the maple syrup and vanilla extract and mix.
  • Add the wet ingredients to the dry and mix with a spatula or the whisk until everything just comes together. The batter should still be lumpy but you shouldn't have any obvious patches of dry flour.
  • Heat a nonstick or cast-iron griddle. Spray with cooking spray or coat lightly with oil. Using a 1/3rd cup measure, scoop up the batter and pour on the hot griddle. Cook until bubbles appear at the top of the pancake and the underside is golden-brown. Flip over and cook the other side until it is lightly browned as well.
  • Serve hot with fruit and maple syrup.
