Vegan Pancakes // Recipe // Healthy Spring Eating

Hello!! *Waves erratically*

How is everyone doing? Have we all been having a great Spring? I absolutely love Spring, it absolutely definitely has to be my favourite season (I'm sure if I lived anywhere other than Scotland, my favourite would be summer, but I don't so it isn't lol). One thing I always seem to have more energy for in Spring is baking, I love shutting myself in the kitchen, blasting my music and just getting my bake on.

One day a week or two ago I had a huge craving for pancakes,but not just any pancakes, vegan pancakes! Now I am not a vegan, if I was I would absolutely starve to death- no joke- but I do love making things that everybody can eat. By making vegan products no-one is excluded because they DON'T TASTE ANY DIFFERENT TO NON-VEGAN ONES!! I'm sorry I shouted but my friends always turn their noses up when I tell them something is vegan, and there is no need.

Anyway enough rambling! I made Vegan pancakes, and here's what you need to know to make your own.

1 cup (150g) of plain flour
1 tbsp of sugar
2 tbsp baking powder
1/8 tsp salt
1 cup (240ml) of soya milk (or other vegan equivalent)
2 tbsp of vegetable oil

And no that is not a typo I did write 2 tablespoons of baking powder, I don't know why you need so much but trust me you do.

It really is such a simple recipe, alll you have to do is...

  1. Pop the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt together in your chosen bowl and mix until well combined. Just use a wooden spoon for this because and electric mixer will just send everything flying all over you.
  2. Once all your dry ingredients are mixed together, mix in the soya milk and oil and beat together until smooth. You can use your electrix mixer for this part if you wish but I stuck with my spoon and they turned out grand. N.B. The finished mixtue will appear at lot thicker than your average pancake batter, this is OK! 
  3. You all know how to cook pancakes right?? No? Okay...
  4. Add just under a tsp of oil to a frying pan on a medium heat and shoogle it around until the whole pan base is oiled. Then drop a large spoonful of batter into pan. Once the pancake starts to bubble all over (approx 2/3 minutes) flip  it over and cook for a further 2 voila!! 

Perfect Vegan Pancakes!! All you have to do it add a topping and enjoy! My favourite topping for warm pancakes is my Pure Soya Vegan Spread (just like margarine but so much better for you).

What do you like on your pancakes? Jam, chocolate spread, butter, or traditional lemon and sugar, or have you got any suggestions for the ultimate pancake topping?? Let me know in the comments. Oh and if you try this recipe be sure to let me know what you think.

Much Love


  1. These look gorgeous, gonna have to make them soon and add a scoop of my banana nicecream on top 😍

    1. They are really yummy! Let me know how you get on with them! I will say maybe add a little bit more sugar if you prefer your pancakes quite non-vegan friends said they weren't sweet enough :-(. Xx
