Easy Vegan Pancakes

Sometimes you just have a hankering for pancakes and these puppies do not disappoint.

Vegan Pancakes

And did I mention they’re easy? To make, that is. Seriously, you will never need another pancake recipe again. AND they’re so delicious and super cost-effective. Oh, and oil-free! I can’t say enough good things about them!

If you’ve stayed the night at my house, I’m sure you’ve had these before. And if you haven’t–I’m sorry! Next time you better hassle me for some of these! 😉


2 cups of whole wheat flour
2 tablespoons of sugar
1.5 tablespoons of baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 cups of a plant-based milk (we use almond milk)
4 tablespoons of apple sauce
A few hearty dashes of cinnamon and nutmeg*
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract*

*The last two ingredients are optional but I like the extra sweetness they add.


Combine all ingredients in a large mixing bowl until smooth. In a non-stick pan over medium-low heat, spoon out one pancake worth of batter at a time (about 4 inches in diameter). The batter may come out a little thick so feel free to spread it out once spooned into the pan to make thinner pancakes. Flip the pancake over when you see bubbles forming on top or the sides have stiffened enough. Continue cooking until golden-brown. Repeat with the rest of the batter.

Serve with pure maple syrup (AKA the best thing ever) and fresh fruit!

Day Twenty ~ Vegan Challenge

Day 20
Eat Drink
Wake Up 8 oz of water
Breakfast Oatmeal with a variety of toppings OR Vegan Pancakes 8 oz of water
Morning 8 oz of water before lunch (I always keep a water bottle handy)
Lunch Leftover Roasted Spaghetti Squash with a side of steamed broccoli 8 oz of water
Afternoon If you're hungry any time throughout the day have some Baked Zucchini Chips OR an apple/celery with 2 Tbsp of nut butter (I like almond or peanut butter) 8 oz of water before dinner
Dinner Kale With Tomato Risotto (it should make enough for two and lunch tomorrow) 8 oz of water
Exercise At least 16 oz of water after exercise to rehydrate

The vegan pancakes are delicious! I had mine with sliced bananas. Next time I’d like to throw some strawberries or blueberries in them. If you don’t have all of the flours you can just use All Purpose (AP). I had AP flour and Spelt but no Flax Meal so I replaced it with Almond Meal. They turned out great! Check out my action shot =)

Yeah, I’m pretty much an advocate for these babies now. Go Vegan Pancakes!

The Kale with Tomato Risotto was delicious as usual! I didn’t take a new photo so here’s the old one. I used white rice instead of Arborio again. Either one works but Arborio will make it creamier!
