Eggnog Aquafaba Pancakes

Another Sunday, another pancake recipe. I’ve been on a banana pancake kick for the last few weeks but we were out of bananas by the time the weekend rolled around. Instead I had some Aquafaba kicking around from making chickpeas. Aquafaba is the water left over from cooking the chickpeas. It’s got a viscose consistency that acts as a binder (egg replacement). The chickpea flour and eggnog create a bit of a dense and moist consistency to the Pancakes.
