Traditional pancakes are made with eggs, milk, and butter, which makes them unsuitable for a plant-based diet. Luckily, though, pancakes are a pretty easy food to adapt to a plant-based format. Here are two recipes for plant-based pancakes to try making at home.

Almond and Oat Pancakes

These pancakes are really hearty and filling. They'd be a good choice for a weekend brunch. You'll need:

  • 1/2 cup almond flour
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup quick oats
  • 1 teaspoon ground flaxseed
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • a pinch of salt
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 cup almond milk

Combine the flaxseed and water. Let sit for 5 minutes. This should form a gummy, jelly substance that works well as an egg replacement.

In a separate bowl, combine the almond flour, all-purpose flour, oats, salt, baking powder, and sugar. Mix well. Pour the vegetable oil, almond milk, and flax mixture into the center of the ingredients and stir until combined. Let sit for 5 minutes, and then stir again, gently.

Pour this mixture by the 1/4 cup into a hot skillet that has been greased with a little vegetable oil. Cook until pancakes form bubbles around the edges. Then, flip the pancakes and let them cook for another 1–2 minutes or until golden brown on both sides.

Honey Whole Wheat Pancakes

Made with honey and whole wheat flour, these pancakes have a really sweet, nutty taste. You'll need:

  • 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground flaxseed
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 3/4 cup plant milk, such as oat milk or almond milk

Combine the flaxseed and water, and set aside to rest for 5 minutes.

In a separate bowl, whisk together the flours, baking powder, and salt. Then, add in the flax mixture, plant milk, vegetable oil, and honey. Stir just until combined.

Pour the mixture by 1/4 cup into a skillet that's been greased with vegetable oil. Cook until bubbly, flip, and then continue cooking until golden brown on both sides.

Both of these pancake recipes are delicious when topped with maple syrup. Of course, you can stir blueberries or chocolate chips into either recipe too, if you prefer. Play around with the recipes and make them your own. After all, plant-based pancakes can be as unique as you want them to be.
