Vegan Pancake Recipes
If you're vegan, plant-based, dairy-free or egg-free, you may think that pancakes are off the menu. Or that there will be a texture and taste compromise. WRONG!
Pancakes are usually just flour, milk and eggs. So how do you make them vegan? It's easy!
All you need is something to give them a little 'lift'. In most of these recipes, that comes from adding lemon juice or vinegar to the vegan milk, then letting it react with the baking powder. Boom - fluffy vegan pancakes!
You can enjoy them with all sorts of flavors, from vegan chocolate chip pancakes to blueberry, gingerbread to the most perfect plain vegan pancakes.
So, read on and get ready to make a stack of the best breakfast food ever - pancakes!

Tips for the BEST vegan pancakes
- Make a well in the dry ingredients, then pour in the wet ingredients before mixing.
- It's fine for the batter to be lumpy - in fact it probably will be. You don't want streaks of flour in the bowl, but you don't need to beat out the lump.
- Let me repeat: don't overmix it.
- If the recipe calls for letting the vegan pancake batter rest, don't skip it. Those few minutes will make all the difference to getting the vegan pancakes nice and fluffy.
- Grease a nonstick skillet or griddle with oil, coconut oil or dairy free butter.
- For evenly-sized pancakes, use a cookie scoop, pancake dispenser or cup measure to pour the batter onto the skillet.
- When to flip? When the middle gets bubbles and they start to pop.
