    Why would you use vegetable oil where there are so many better and organic options?

      Hi Aleksandr, that’s a really great question!
      Thanks for this.
      I agree! I can read it a number of ways though; maybe the recipe writer used ‘vegetable oil’ because that is realistic or accessible to a lot of people.
      Then again, it could be this term is a placeholder for “plant-based oil of your choice” and not meant to conjure images of damaged mass-market grain oil. I can see that, precisely because there really ARE so many better, organic options, it is almost too many to list.
      However, if you pick only one, some might feel that they can’t make the recipe if they don’t have it!

      Thankfully, because you have brought it up, it’s a great chance to mention that although Flora’s flax oil and Udo’s oil are not suitable for frying pancakes, of course, we do have Sacha Inchi, a more heat-tolerant oil.
      If you have something like sacha inchi, coconut, camelina, or avocado oil, those are options that would be better than cottonseed, soy, corn, or canola oil!
