What are vegan pancakes made of?
The main essential ingredients you need to make vegan 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 the best substitute for eggs in vegan pancakes?
We’re lucky to have lots of choices when it comes to vegan egg substitutes to help you make vegan pancake recipes.
To bind your vegan pancakes, you can choose from a variety of natural binding agents such as flaxseed, chia, banana and even applesauce. Silken tofu 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.
