Perfect Light and Fluffy Vegan Pancake Recipe

One of my family's favorite traditions is Saturday Pancakes.  I get up early and make more than enough pancakes with all the fixins'.  We sit around the table and talk about our week, what our plans for the weekend are, and just spend some quality time together.  I genuinely look forward to it every Saturday.  So when we went plant-based I knew I had a challenge on my hands to come up with the PERFECT Light and Fluffy Vegan Pancake Recipe.  


Often times when you start swapping ingredients for vegan ones textures change and things get a little wonky (yes, that is a professional term.) I knew I didn't want that and I am pleased to announce that I have come up with the PERFECT and I do mean PERFECT vegan pancake recipe.  These easy vegan pancakes are seriously the fluffiest vegan pancakes around! They are just begging to be stacked and drizzled with maple syrup! I can't wait to share them with you so...


Let's Get Started!


For these Perfect Light and Fluffy Vegan Pancakes you will need a few simple ingredients:



  • 2 cups All Purpose Flour
  • 2 Tbsp Baking Powder
  • 2 cups Plant Milk 
  • 1/4 cup Plant-Based Butter (melted) or Oil
  • 1/4 cup Maple Syrup
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 1/2 tsp Salt
HOW TO MAKE THE LIGHT AND FLUFFY VEGAN PANCAKES:

In a mixing bowl combine the all purpose flour, baking powder, and salt.  

Whisk it together. 


Next add the melted butter (or oil), maple syrup, vanilla extract, and plant milk.



Whisk everything together until smooth.  



Next you will need to place a pan over MEDIUM/HIGH heat and allow it to get hot.  

Spray the pan with a little oil to keep it from sticking. 

Use a 1/4 cup measuring cup and scoop the vegan pancake batter onto the pan. 

This recipe should yield about 12 pancakes.


You will let the vegan pancakes cook until you see a cake-like consistency forming up the side and bubbles forming on the top.  This will take about 2-3 minutes. 

When this happens go ahead and flip your pancakes and cook for 2-3 minutes on the other side until the light and fluffy vegan pancakes are cook through. 



 And there you have it the most delectable, perfect, light and fluffy vegan pancakes around!  I know your family is going to love them as much as mine and I PROMISE you will not miss the egg and dairy.  



WHAT CAN I ADD TO THESE PANCAKES?

  • Blueberries
  • Strawberries
  • Bananas
  • Nuts
  • Chocolate Chips
You can LITERALLY add anything to these light and fluffy vegan pancakes that you would to any other pancake recipe.


CAN I MAKE THESE PROTEIN PANCAKES?

Seeing as I have a 6 year old son I am ALWAYS looking for ways to get protein into his diet.  So YES!  You can 100% add your favorite protein powder to this recipe.  We really enjoy the Vega Protein and greens powder.  




I really like how it has added greens in it as well because I think we can ALL use a little more green in our diet.  The only thing you will have to change to the recipe is add a little more plant milk to make sure you get the right texture in your batter.

DO I HAVE TO USE THE BUTTER AND SYRUP?

Where I have successfully omitted the syrup from this recipe, you CANNOT omit the fat.  There is something about the fat that gives these light and fluffy vegan pancakes their perfect texture.  Whenever I have tried to omit it they just turn out rubbery.  


DO THESE LIGHT AND FLUFFY VEGAN PANCAKES FREEZE WELL?

The answer to that is a hard YES!  I simply place a little wax paper in between each pancake and put them in a resealable freezer bag.  When you are ready to eat them you can simple reheat in a toaster or microwave.  

Basically you cannot go wrong with this recipe so get in the kitchen and give it a try tonight!

And as always...
