Lemon Poppy Seed Pancakes

When the land gives you lemons, make the most of it. I love lemon poppy seed anything, cake, muffins, pancakes and consider myself very lucky to be able to go outside and pick some lemons in the middle of winter. Magic.

These vegan pancakes are not only super easy and quick to make but also high in protein as they are made of tofu. It’s a perfect plant-based breakfast and a delicious treat, ready in 15 min.
