What is Moringa?
Officially known as Moringa Oleifera, Moringa is a plant that is native to Southeast Asia, some parts of Africa, and South America. This plant has been praised for its medicinal value and health benefits. Almost all parts of the tree can be consumed but it’s the leaves that earned the reputation as excellent source of essential vitamins and minerals. In Western countries, the dried leaves are sold in powder form. Moringa can be added to both savory and sweet food preparation. Powdered moringa can be used in soups, smoothies, savory recipes or even in breakfast items such as pancakes.

There is no unhealthy refined sugar in this recipe. We’re using carob syrup as natural sweetener. Aside from being quick and easy to prepare, this pancake recipe is also gluten-free and vegan. Unsweetened applesauce takes the place of eggs as binding agent. Preparation is absolutely a breeze. It is as easy as combining all the ingredients in a bowl to make the batter, allowing the mixture to thicken for a few minutes, and then pouring some onto a non-stick pan to actually make the pancakes. It’s that simple!
