Light & Fluffy VEGAN Pancakes

Yep. The title is no lie, these pancakes really are light & fluffy (and vegan of course)! 

Most vegan pancake recipes out there taste good, but kind of dense/wet… Not a big problem, but sometimes (or every time) you just need some fluffy pancakes right?? ;)
Also, no bananas are used in this batter. I find that bananas make pancakes dense and give them a 'banana-ey taste' (I love bananas but regular/traditional pancakes don't taste like bananas heheh).

I hope you can try em out and love it as much as I do! :) 
If you do make it, let me know how you like it (and tag me on instagram if you take a picture :p)


1 c unbleached all purpose flour (you should be able to use your favourite all purpose GF flour mix if you're allergic to gluten) *I don't use oat/buckwheat flour because it won't turn out light/fluffy like regular flour.
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
2 tbsp coconut sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 c vanilla/original soy milk + 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
1 tbsp ground flaxseeds + 2 tbsp water


1. Make the flax 'egg' by mixing the ground flaxseeds & water, and make the 'buttermilk' by mixing together the soy milk & vinegar. Set aside both while you prepare the rest of the batter.

2. Sift and mix together all the dry ingredients.

3. Pour the vanilla, 'soy buttermilk' & 'flax egg' into the dry mix. Mix them together (DO NOT OVERMIX or you'll get gummy/not-so-fluffy pancakes, a few lumps here and there is totally ok).

4. Heat a nonstick pan over medium-high heat, you'll know it's ready when a few drops of water sprinkled on sizzles. Spray/brush your pan with a bit of oil if your pan isn't nonstick or for extra insurance (washing sticky pancake mess off a pan is not fun -> warning haha).

5. Pour ~1/4 c of batter for each pancake. Flip when bubbles form and the edges are set. Let the other side cook for a little while until its fully cooked. Repeat with the rest of the batter.

6. Serve with your favourite toppings! I used nutella sauce, rawnola (low fat & vegan nutella and rawnola recipe will be in my Vegan Desserts Ebook!), a sliced up banana, and some strawberries! There you have it, a delicious stack of pancakes for breakfast, check!


  1. What if I tried to use oat flour?? Will it work? thank you! I absolutely love YOU AND YOUR BLOG <3

    1. Aww thank you so much! <3 Hmm, it might work but it won't be fluffy (oat flour & banana which are common in vegan/healthy pancake recipes makes them dense/different texture than traditional pancakes). You should try an all purpose gf flour mix if you're allergic to wheat! :)

  2. That’s some really gorgeous. Too tempting and mouthwatering. They look fabulous!
