Chai Spelt Pancakes




  • 1/2 cup boiling water
  • 4 chai tea bags
  • 1/2 to 2/3 cup soymilk or almond milk
  • 1/2 cup light spelt flour
  • 1/2 cup whole spelt flour
  • 1 tablespoon granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon oil, light or flavorless
  • Canola oil, for cooking (I used coconut oil spray)
  • Preparation:
    1. Combine the hot water and tea bags in a heat proof measuring cup. Let steep 10-15 minutes. Squeeze out extra water from tea bags and discard. Add milk so you wind up with 1 cup of liquid. In medium bowl, combine the flours, sugar, baking powder, and cinnamon. Add liquid ingredients and oil, stirring just until combined. Do not over mix.
    2. Heat a skillet or griddle over medium heat and grease lightly with oil. Scoop batter with a 1/4 measuring cup onto hot skillet, spreading out to about 4 inches if needed. Cook until bubbles appear on surface, bottom is golden and edges look firm, about 2 minutes. Flip pancakes and cook until golden. Repeat with remaining batter, adding more oil to skillet as needed. Serve right away.
