Author Notes

These gluten and dairy free pancakes are savoury but mildly sweet. They're delicate but won't fall apart when you flip them (score) and they're a soft green colour (double score). I used the lentil hummus recipe from Oh She Glows, which you can find here. I prefer it to chickpea hummus in this recipe because it's ultra smooth.
