Super Simple Vegan Pancakes
Soft and fluffy with a taste of vanilla, these delicious vegan pancakes are packed with flavor.
It has been months since I have had the chance to sit down and actually cook for breakfast, so I figured I’d make a classic meal – pancakes topped with berries and a sprinkle of powdered sugar.
Pancakes are one the easiest things to make – milk, flour, baking powder and salt. I mean, c’mon. They take less than 15 minutes to cook from scratch, are naturally delicious and can be taken to new levels depending on your toppings and fillings. It’s no wonder many consider it a breakfast staple.
And because I like to make some of my meals vegan, I made these pancakes vegan by making ONE substitution: using vanilla almond milk instead of dairy milk. It is that simple and will meet the needs of those who are vegan and/or sensitive to dairy.
In addition to that, these vegan pancakes will also satisfy your sweet tooth! I love sweet pancakes but am not a fan of drenching them in syrup, so what is the solution? Making them internally sweet and adding non-liquid toppings. After combining the dry ingredients and milk, I added sugar-free maple syrup and vanilla extract to the mix. This gives the pancakes a mildly sweet taste right off the stove – no extra syrup needed!
And to make this a somewhat clean breakfast, I added a serving of fresh fruit and then powdered sugar (I said somewhat healthy) to tie it all in. Voilà! It’s time to settle in and enjoy these flavorful pancakes!
