The BEST and fluffiest vegan pancakes made with just 6 easy pantry staples you probably have on hand right now! Made in 1 bowl, the recipe can easily doubled, tripled or even quadrupled.

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups all purpose flour *see notes for options
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1 cup soy milk *or use almond, oat or coconut milk
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil *may omit for oil free

Instructions

  • In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, salt and sugar. 
  • Pour the milk, water and oil into the bowl with the dry ingredients, and stir with a large spoon until just combined. A few lumps are okay; do not over mix or your pancakes won't be as fluffy.
  • Heat a large griddle or pan over medium-high heat. Grease the pan with vegan butter or coconut oil, and drop about 1/3 cup of the batter onto it. Cook until bubbles form, then flip and cook until golden brown on the other side, about 1-2 minutes. Repeat with all the remaining batter.
  • Serve with vegan butter, pure maple syrup and perhaps some fresh fruit.

Notes

  1. Flour options: For a whole grain option, use whole wheat pastry flour or spelt flour. To make gluten free pancakes, substitute a quality gluten free flour for the regular flour. I have had good luck with Bob's Red Mill 1:1 Flour.
  2. For oil free pancakes, omit the oil and substitute more non-dairy milk. May also use melted coconut oil, avocado oil, olive oil or melted vegan butter.
  3. Variations: Fold into the batter 1 cup of dairy free chocolate chips for chocolate chip pancakes. Or 1 cup of fresh blueberries for blueberry pancakes. 
  4. Storing pancakes: Leftover pancakes will keep in the refrigerator for up to 5 days or they can be frozen for months. Re-warm wrapped in paper towels in the microwave until warm, or use the toaster oven.
  5. Nutritional information is an estimate only. 1 serving is about 2-3 pancakes, depending on how large you make them.
