Grilled Whole Wheat Chia Pancakes for a Crowd

Grilled Whole Wheat Chia Pancakes for a Crowd
Adapted by Vickilynn Haycraft

4 cups freshly-ground hard white wheat flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons cinnamon
2 TB baking powder
2 teaspoons baking soda
4 cups homemade almond chia milk (or any milk with 2 TB organic chia seeds)
4 TB virgin olive oil or organic virgin coconut oil
4 eggs, large, beaten
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon almond extract
1/2 cup dried fruit (optional)

Mix dry ingredients in a large bowl. Mix wet ingredients in a blender or another large bowl. Add wet to dry and whisk until smooth. Let sit while grill preheats. Batter will become thick and bubbly.

Preheat cast iron griddle on grill. Grease with organic virgin coconut oil. When hot, turn grill down to medium. Pour batter onto hot griddle about 1/4- 1/2 cup sized pancakes. Lower lid and cook until pancakes are dry on edges. Flip pancakes over and cook until done. Repeat with remaining batter.

* If you do not have a grill or you do not wish to cook outside, simply use a frying pan or griddle on your stovetop.
