1 tbsp chia seeds soaked in 1/2 cup water for at least 15 minutes
1 cup spelt flour
1 tsp coconut sugar
1 tsp baking powder
Pinch salt
3/4 cup almond milk
6 dried figs, roughly chopped
Juice and zest of half a medium lemon

Oil, if needed, for cooking

1. When the chia seeds have soaked, combine the spelt flour and baking powder in a large mixing bowl. Add the chia seeds in water and almond milk and stir well to combine. Add in the chopped figs, lemon juice and lemon zest and stir to incorporate.
2. Heat a non-stick pan over medium-high heat and spray with oil if desired. Use a large spoon to drop the mixture into the pan, aiming to pour the mixture off the end of the spoon. Cook in batches of 3 to 4, for approximately 3 minutes on each side until golden brown.
3. Serve with blueberries or other fruit or toppings as desired.
