Pancakes are one of the most universally beloved foods in the world. They can be enjoyed with savory or sweet fillings and are easy to make quickly for lots of people. Here is a recipe for vegan pancakes that will still pack a punch.


  • 1 cup of all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup of almond milk (or any plant-based milk)
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil (plus extra for cooking)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract (optional)


  1. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt until well combined. In a separate bowl, mix together the almond milk, vegetable oil, and vanilla extract (if using).
  2. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and stir until just combined. Be careful not to overmix; a few lumps in the batter are okay. Heat a non-stick skillet or griddle over medium heat and lightly grease it with vegetable oil.
  3. Pour about 1/4 cup of batter onto the skillet for each pancake, spreading it slightly with the back of a spoon. Cook the pancakes for 2-3 minutes, or until bubbles form on the surface and the edges start to look set.
  4. Carefully flip the pancakes with a spatula and cook for another 1-2 minutes on the other side, until golden brown and cooked through. Repeat with the remaining batter, adding more oil to the skillet as needed.
  5. Serve your delicious vegan pancakes warm, topped with your favorite toppings such as maple syrup, fresh fruit, or vegan whipped cream.
