What are vegan pancakes made of?

The main essential ingredients you need to make pancakes are flour, milk, and a binding ingredient.

Typically, pancakes are made using both dairy milk and eggs, but creating a vegan version couldn’t be simpler.

Nowadays there are plenty of nutritious plant-based milks available so you can easily swap dairy milk for a dairy-free alternative.

Along with flour, a little sugar for sweetness if you like, all you need to do next is find a vegan egg replacement to bind them together.

What is a vegan substitute for eggs in pancakes?

We’re lucky to have lots of choice when it comes to vegan egg substitutes to help you make fluffy plant-based pancakes.

To bind your vegan pancakes, you can choose from a variety of natural binding agents such as flaxseed, chia, banana and even applesauce. Silken to fu also makes a great plant-based egg alternative and ensures your pancakes are packed with protein to keep you full until lunch.

There are also plenty of pre-made egg replacements available in supermarkets such as Crack’d and Oggs.

It really has never been easier to create a sumptuous stack of plant-based pancakes, and the following vegan pancake recipes all bring something unique to the table.
