With pancake day looming and having recently opted to try a plant based diet, I realised that I needed a great vegan pancake recipe pronto! There is categorically NO WAY I’m going to celebrate pancake day without pancakes. Who even does that?!

Don’t need a vegan pancake recipe? You can use regular cows milk in place of the oat milk or you can check out these epic millionaire’s shortbread pancakes as an alternative. Maybe even this delightful English pancake recipe which is more of a crepe style pancake but just as delicious! I’ve also always been a HUGE fan of this strawberry Nutella french toast too, but hey – I’m all about breakfast baby!

I tried a few different recipes and ingredients with varying levels of success, until I finally tweaked and settled on this. The most marvellous vegan pancake recipe of all!

Can this vegan pancake recipe be used for all diets?

Even if you’re not vegan, you can absolutely enjoy these vegan pancakes! If you don’t require it to be vegan or dairy free, you can just use regular milk in place of the oat milk. You can use any other milk for that matter. Soy milk, rice milk, almond milk… any will work just fine. Please note that this is not a gluten free recipe though, so it’s not suitable for coeliac sufferers.

Are vegan pancakes easy on the purse strings?

Like almost all pancake recipes, of course it’s cheap to make! Despite being a vegan recipe (where you may think you need expensive specialist ingredients) it still uses store cupboard/cheap ingredients so you can go ahead and splash out on the toppings instead…

Vegan pancake recipe top tips

New to vegan pancakes? Fear not! Here’s some super duper tips to help you out.

  • A lumpy batter is a good batter. It’s tempting to mix until smooth but don’t! You’re pancakes will be thicker.
  • Don’t walk away when you’re cooking pancakes! They cook so quickly that it’s best to stay by the pan and keep a close eye on them.
  • No need to oil/grease the pan – they won’t stick.
  • The best time to flip is when the top is really bubbly and the edges are just starting to cook/look a little dull.
  • Are your pancakes browning too much? Turn the heat down a fraction.
  • Keep your pancakes warm on a plate covered with tin foil while you finish making the rest.
  • Prepare your toppings before you start making the pancakes. That way you can dive straight in when you’re done!

In a jug, measure out the oat milk (240ml | 1 Cup), white wine vinegar (1 tbsp) and vanilla extract (1 tsp). Mix it together then leave to one side to thicken slightly.

Meanwhile, in a large bowl, weigh out the plain flour (125g | 1 Cup), golden caster sugar (2 tbsp), baking powder (1 tbsp) and a good pinch of salt. Make a well in the centre and add in the milk mixture.

Let’s give it a good stir until ‘mostly’ blended but still a little lumpy. (Don’t be tempted to mix until completely smooth or your pancakes will be thinner than you want them.)

Let’s pour that beautiful vegan pancake batter into a jug (I used the same one the milk was mixed in because I hate washing pots!) and leave to rest for 5 minutes.

While the batter is resting – heat the pan over a medium heat and prepare your toppings. I love strawberries and maple syrup! So if you haven’t already, hull and quarter the strawberries (x 6-8) and place them in a bowl. Scatter over 1/2 tsp of golden caster sugar and mix through.

Leave them to one side while you cook your pancakes and, when you come back to them – they’ll have released lots of beautiful strawberry juices! (This is called macerating strawberries.)

How to cook vegan pancakes

Once your vegan pancake batter has rested and the pan is hot – it’s time to cook them! Pour enough batter into the hot pan so that it spreads to roughly a 10 cm circle. It will start to bubble up and thicken quite quickly…

When it gets really bubbly on top and the edges look like they’re starting to cook (lose their shine), it’s time to flip it over with a rubber spatula.

Tadah! Then continue to cook for 30 secs to a minute or so until the other side is cooked/golden. It won’t take as long as the first side. Then scoop it out the pan, place onto a plate, cover with tin foil and repeat until all the batter is used up.
