Chai-spiced spelt pancakes
1 1/2 cups wholemeal spelt flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 cup cooled chai black tea ( I used a chai tea bag and steeped it in 1/2 cup boiling water)
1/2 cup milk
3/4 cup low-fat Greek yoghurt
2 tablespoons agave syrup (you could also use rice malt syrup, maple syrup or honey)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Cooking oil spray
Blueberries and extra agave syrup to serve
Sift the flour, baking powder, cinnamon, ginger and baking soda into a medium bowl. In a separate bowl, whisk together the tea, milk, yoghurt, egg, agave syrup and vanilla. Add to the dry ingredients and whisk until just combined. Lightly spray a large frying pan with cooking oil. Heat over medium/low heat. Cook 1/4 cupfuls of the batter, in batches, for 2-3 minutes each side or until golden and cooked through. Top with blueberries and drizzle with extra agave syrup to serve.
