Simple Vegan Pancakes

Today I’m sharing my recipe for Simple Vegan Pancakes. These pancakes taste just like non-vegan pancakes and they rise very well into a fluffy pancake. I serve them with my Strawberry Simple Syrup and some orange juice!

Ingredients For My Simple Vegan Pancakes

To make these pancakes, you only need six ingredients: all-purpose flour, almond milk (or your favourite plant-based milk), coconut oil (in its liquid state), baking powder and salt, and some brown sugar. I save some coconut oil for the pan, to grease it before frying the pancakes.

How To Make Vegan Pancakes – Step By Step

The first step is to whisk together the dry ingredients. Add spices at this point if you like! The second step is to add all of the wet ingredients and whisk well. If your coconut oil is solid, you can warm it up in the microwave for a few seconds until it turns into a liquid. It incorporates much easier when it’s liquified. At this point if you want to add some fruits, be my guest! I have made these with vegan chocolate chips and the result was delicious!

To be 100% honest my friends, these pancakes do stick to the pan – even if you have a non-stick pan. Knowing that, I generously grease the pan with coconut oil then drop in the batter about 1/4 cup at a time.

The first time I made these, I was eager to check underneath the pancake to see how it was doing – BIG MISTAKE. It completely fell apart! If you have your burner on medium heat, I’d say let it be for a good 3-5 minutes. When you see lots of bubbles forming on the top of the pancake, you can take a peak underneath – as long as it’s been cooking a minimum of 3 minutes, otherwise, well, you’ll see – it’ll just break all into bits. Before flipping the pancake, make sure to re-grease your pan with more coconut oil. You have to do this every time or the pancake will stick! PS: It’s worth the effort! Once flipped, I leave the pancake cooking for another 3 minutes or until the bottom side is nice and golden/dark brown.

Bon appetite!
