The best vegan pancakes – simple recipe 

Vegan pancakes… it has taken me a long time to finally find a recipe which is easy to make, doesn’t require a bunch of expensive and different ingredients which i never have at home. But also pancakes that are quick, easy, delicious and actually look like pancakes. I don’t know how many times i have made pancakes that have looked and tasted more like cement than pancakes, or pancakes that just turn into a scramble or pancakes that have so much flax seed or chia seeds that it turns your stomach into a knot after eating them, hahah.


But finally a recipe which i love and is easy to make. I haven’t tried making the pancakes with another flour form such as oat flour, gluten free flour etc but you can try if you want and let me know! Also, substituting white flour for almond flour or coconut flour most likely won’t work as they have different qualities and you would need to add more liquid or less liquid depending on the flour type you use 🙂 So just a heads up, if you don’t want to use white flour or whole grain flour, then it’s best to look for another recipe!


3 dl flour.

6dl water or vegan milk (or 3dl oat milk and 3dl water)

All of the aquafaba from 1 package of chickpeas. Or c.a 0,5-1dl.

Salt and sugar/sweetner.

1 tbs melted vegan butter.

Mix it all together, add more liquid if necessary. Add cinnamon or vanilla powder if you like and then fry using oil/vegan margarine or without anything if you use a non stick frying pan 🙂

This is by far my favourite pancake recipe as i almost always have these ingredients at home and its easy and delicious 🙂

This recipe makes about 6-7 full pancakes so perfect for two people 🙂 Or pancakes for two different meals!

  1. Going to try this recipe using gluten free flour – so will let you know how it turns out. All the recipes I have followed so far makes really “heavy” pancakes so I`ll be interested in seeing (and tasting!) the result of this one.
    Just one thing though – whats a “dl” ?


    1. Let me know if it works with the gluten free flour 🙂 a dl is 100ml 🙂

    Gonna have to try this recipe out!! Haven’t yet tried a pancake recipe that looks good but this is promising! x


    1. It is a super delicious pancake recipe, easy to make as well 🙂


  3. Hi Izzy – I made these last night for supper for me and my partner, and they were delicious!
    I used white gluten free flour and had to add a little more liquid – I used cold water – because gluten free flour tends to be more absorbent than standard milled flour. For the milk I used hazelnut milk and also used egg replacer powder.
    I was really pleased with the results and will definitely be making these again very soon – they turned out really light, unlike my past attempts at pancakes which tended to be “heavy” if you get what I mean. My partner had his with the normal lemon juice and sugar whilst I went for golden syrup – my favourite!
    I`m thinking of using this recipe for savoury pancakes next time I have them – have you ever tried savoury pancakes? You just fill and roll them with a savoury filling instead of sweet – makes a nice change for tea of an evening.
    I hope you are feeling better now and thanks for sharing this recipe!
