    How about gluten free alternatives?

    I replaced the eggs with Aquafaba, added dairy free coconut yogurt, flax powder, 2 dates and vegan protein powder. The resulting pancakes were cooked on the outside and raw in the center.

    Perhaps the grill was too hot, or the dates added too much sugar. I am not quite sure how to better the process.
