Method
Pancakes
In a bowl, combine dry ingredients. Combine eggs and NAPSI-certified maple water in blender, add dry ingredients and blend. Pour olive oil into batter, continuing to blend several seconds longer. In a large non-stick skillet brushed lightly with oil and set over medium heat, pour two 60-ml (1/4-cup) ladlefuls of batter and spread into two circles about 12.5 cm (5 in.) in diameter. Cook until golden, about 1 1/2 minutes each side. Keep warm on a plate as you cook the rest.
 
Topping
Heat olive oil in a large skillet. Add onion and peppers and brown for several minutes over medium heat. Add garlic and maple syrup and allow to caramelize, stirring a few times. Season with hot pepper flakes. Set aside.
 
Plating
Serve two pancakes per person. Top with caramelized peppers and goat cheese. Garnish with fine herbs.
