Start by grounding 1 1/2 cups oats, then transfer to a large bowl. Add 2 cups flour, 1 TSP. baking soda, and 1 TSP. salt.

In a blender, beat 1/4 cup vegan butter (I used SmartBalance) with 1/4 cup coconut oil, 1/2 cup canola oil, 1 cup raw sugar, 1/3 cup agave, 2 TBSP. ground flaxseed mixed with 6 TBSP. water (as egg substitute), 1/2 mashed banana, and 2 TSP. vanilla extract until smooth.

Corn Cakes

corn cakes

Ingredients: ground rolled oats, ground yellow cornmeal, baking powder, salt, banana, coconut oil, organic milled flaxseed, water, almond milk, agave nectar, and vanilla extract.

In a large bowl, whisk together 1 1/4 cups fine ground rolled oats, 2 cups fine ground yellow corn meal, 3 TSP baking powder, and 1/2 TSP salt. Set aside. In a small bowl, combine 1 TBSP organic milled flaxseed with 3 TBSP water. This is used as an egg substitute. Blend together with 1/2 a ripe banana, 1/3 cup coconut oil, 2 cups almond milk, 3 TBSP agave nectar, and 1 TSP vanilla. Combine the wet mixture with the dries and let it sit for at least 5 minutes before giving a final stir.  Grill by 1/3 cupfuls and enjoy!

Experiment:  Perhaps you could use something other than ground oats, like brown rice or coconut flour.  Substitute almond milk for another dairy or non dairy option.  Add a few tablespoons of fresh corn to the mix for texture.  Try making a savory version by omitting the agave and adding scallions, chives, cayenne pepper, garlic, and onion powder, or other herbs and spices of your choice!
