Vegan Poppy Seed Pancakes:
Caramelized Figs:
Prepare the Pancakes:
  1. Add all ingredients for the pancakes to a blender and blend until combined (note: if you don't have a blender, you can also use a hand mixer, or whisk by hand). The batter will be thick - this is normal!

  2. Heat 1 to 2 tablespoons olive oil or coconut oil in a large skillet over medium-high. Measure a scant 1/4 cup of matter and pour onto the hot skillet. Note that the pancake batter won't spread the way regular pancake batter does, so you can use your finger or a spoon to shape it into a disc. Cook 1 to 2 minutes per side, until golden-brown and cooked through in the center. Repeat for remaining batter.

  3. Top Pancakes with caramelized figs, roasted chopped almonds, pure maple syrup, and/or any other toppings you love.

Make the Caramelized Figs
  1. Heat the olive oil in a small skillet over medium-high. Add the chopped figs, pure maple syrup, ground cinnamon, and a pinch of sea salt. Cook, stirring occasionally, until figs are deep in color and caramelize, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat and serve on top of pancakes!
