Recipe: Vegan Blue Corn and Chia Seed Pancakes

Julie's Kitchen//Blue Corn Pancakes

I’m not a vegan, but I do get a kick out of “veganizing” things if it makes them a wee-bit more nutritious. For example, one tablespoon of chia seeds (packed full of Omega-3s) plus three tablespoons of water work well as an egg replacement in baked goods and bready things, like these blue corn pancakes I made for brunch last weekend.
