If you’ve been reading my blogs you know how much I rave about Superfoods. Moringa and Spirulina powders being my favorite. As a fanatic I love to find interesting ways to enjoy these superfoods. I feel like Moringa is highly underrated but it’s nutrient profile is unmatched.
What is Moringa?
Sometimes mistaken with Matcha for their same taste and green color, Moringa is a nutrient-packed plant is also known as the “miracle tree” with more vitamin C than oranges, more vitamin A than carrots, more potassium than bananas, and more iron than spinach and kale (Sukuma wiki).
Nurture and Reset is a Kenyan Moringa provider and they source their Moringa from local small scale farmers. They have combined foxtail millet, rice flour and moringa powder to bring us some delicious Moringa Porridge at a very affordable price of Kshs. 300. The porridge can be enjoyed in itself by adding water or milk and cooking it for 15 minutes or can be used to make these pancakes as well. The moringa porridge is high in fiber, very rich in calcium and the kids will be delighted to try it too.
What You’ll Need To Make These Moringa Porridge Vegan Pancakes
- Moringa Porridge(Nurture & Reset) – The ingredients are simple and vegan; moringa powder, foxtail millet and rice flour.
- Gluten-free white flour – This will help the pancakes hold better. If you’re not gluten sensitive substitute with all-purpose flour.
- Non-dairy milk– I love to use almond milk as it’s sweeter. Feel free to use any milk of choice from oat milk, soya milk or whole milk.
- Sugar– To sweeten. Substitute with honey or maple syrup if vegan.
- Baking powder– This acts as a leavener and creates bubbles in the batter and when cooked results in a light and fluffy pancakes.
How To Make Moringa Porridge Pancakes

If you’re looking for healthier and wholesome way to elevate your pancakes as well as adding nutrients into them, I hope you try out these moringa porridge vegan pancakes. If you still want to enjoy the porridge on its own cook the Moringa porridge with some water or milk and enjoy.
