Vegan Jiffy Johnny Cakes

Johnny cakes are one of my favorite griddled foods! I found a box of Jiffy mix in my pantry, and had some scallions that had seen better days. I got inspired, so BOOM – scallion johnny cakes . I enjoyed them with a sauce of 2 parts maple + 1 part soy + 1 too hot to handle chili (courtesy of my friend Julie’s mom 🥵 ). I subbed flax seeds for eggs, olive oil for butter, and water for milk. #whoyoucallinahoecake
