Easy delicious vegan pancakes are perfect for special mornings or lazy weekends. I first made these to celebrate the 2021 Presidential Inauguration, but this week while watching the Tokyo Olympics and seeing our U.S. athletes wave the American flag, I was reminded of them.
This is a good basic pancake recipe you can keep on hand and make often. Add special ingredients, like bits of fruit or chocolate chips, to the batter to jazz up the pancakes. You can serve classic pancakes with vegan butter and maple syrup or top the pancakes with your favorite fruit sauce. Have a look at my Blueberry Syrup – it’s so easy to make and adds so much to pancakes! The whole family will love these.
I use a 1/4 cup measuring cup to pour the batter onto the griddle or skillet. This makes a nice 4-inch pancake and guarantees the pancakes are cooked through when browned. This recipe makes nine 4-inch pancakes. You should be able to substitute your favorite gluten free flour in an equal amount for gluten free pancakes. Double or triple the recipe for a crowd!
Applesauce replaces eggs in this recipe and the baking powder gives the pancakes nice fluffiness and height.
