To further stave off UC-induced inflammation, wild blueberries offer double the antioxidants compared to conventional. Get the scoop on how we developed our UC Cooking Club recipes!

Directions

Step 1Combine oats and cashew milk in a medium bowl; let stand 10 minutes.

Step 2Meanwhile, combine flour, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt in a large bowl; stir with a whisk. Set aside.

Step 3Add egg, 1 Tbsp. of the maple syrup, oil, and vanilla to oat mixture; stir to combine. Pour oat mixture into flour mixture; stir until just combined. Fold in blueberries.

Step 4Heat a greased nonstick skillet or griddle over medium. While pan heats, combine remaining 3 Tbsp. maple syrup and almond butter in a small bowl. Add 1 Tbsp. hot water and stir with a whisk until smooth. Set aside.

Step 5Serve a scant ¼ cup (scant = a little less than) pancake batter per pancake onto hot griddle. Cook until tops are covered with bubbles and edges look dry and cooked, about 2 to 3 minutes. Flip and cook 1 to 2 minutes on other side. Serve with almond butter sauce and additional blueberries, if desired.
