DIRECTIONS

Add the flour, oats and lemon zest to a blender canister. Cover and blend on medium speed for 10-15 seconds, or until the oat break down and everything has a consistent texture. Pour into a large mixing bowl. Mix in the baking powder and salt.

In a second bowl, mix the coconut milk eggs, honey, oil, lemon juice, and extract until smooth. Pour into the dry ingredients and mix gently until everything in incorporated. Stir in the poppy seeds.

Let the batter rest for 10 minutes. It will be very thin and foamy.

Heat a nonstick griddle or frying pan over medium heat. Add a pat of butter and let melt. When the butter is melted, add 1/4 cup of pancake batter. Cook for 2-3 minutes, or until the top of the pancakes starts to look dry. Flip and cook another 1-2 minutes, until golden brown. Repeat with remaining batter, adding more butter to the pan as needed.

Serve with butter and honey.
