Recipe: Orange Chia Seed Pancakes

I love pancakes for a few reasons the top one being they are super easy to make.  I love to make a large batch and put the extra in the freezer for the rest of the week.  They are also easy to make your own.  Changing flavors is fun like throwing in blueberries, chocolate chips, or strawberries.  For me I have been working on trying to make a yummy vegan gluten-free pancake and found a great resource at  I’ve adapted her recipe a bit to make these pancakes and I warn you they are very yummy so sticking with only two, three okay four of them is tough.
