KEY TRICKS TO THE PERFECT VEGAN PANCAKES.

LOW + SLOW IS BEST.

When it comes to cooking your pancakes, keeping the heat on low is the key. This ensures that your pancakes are fully cooked through without making the outsides dark before their time.

DOUBLE CHECK THAT YOUR LEAVENERS AREN’T EXPIRED.

Ensuring that the leaveners that are used (baking powder, baking soda, etc) aren’t expired and are completely fresh. This ensures that your pancakes rise at their best and are super fluffy as intended.

NO OVER-MIXING, PLEASE!

Once all ingredients are well combined after stirring with a spatula, no need to keep mixing. Remember, you want airy, fluffy pancakes—not chewy pancakes due to the gluten formulating from over-mixing.

USE THE CORRECT PAN!

I find that using a flat cast-iron griddle works the best when making pancakes. Unfortunately, a regular sauté pan isn’t flat enough (slopped sides?) aren’t friendly in making the perfect stack.

OIL THE BASE, NOT BUTTER IT!

I know. I’m one who loves using butter (Vegan butter for vegan recipes), but when making pancakes it’s best to use some sort of oil (coconut, grapeseed, vegetable oil, etc) and whipping it lightly so that it isn’t drenched. Wallah! No easy burns or anything.

DON’T FLIP THOSE PANCAKES JUST YET!

I’ve been guilty of this in the past. No flipping those pancakes the moment a little crust forms on the bottom. Nope. Only flip to the opposite side once the bubbles have ‘popped’ and opened into holes, which means that all of the bottom is formed and OK to flip. Got it?

That’s that. Follow these simple tricks and those pancakes on your table are sure to be perfect for everyone!

Whelp, let’s dig right into these pancakes, shall we?

Start by whisking together the organic all-purpose flour, baking powder, and sea salt in a large bowl and set aside.

In a separate bowl, add the Almond milk and apple cider vinegar and whisk together until well combined. Set aside for 5-10 minutes.

Add vanilla, maple syrup, and oil to the ACV-Milk mixture, whisking until everything is well combined.

Now, add the wet ingredients in with the dry ingredients and stir together with a rubber spatula until well combined. NOTE: Batter shouldn’t be too runny or too thick. Try to find it somewhere in the middle. **Try not to Over-mix.**

Fold in rainbow sprinkles until well incorporated.

Add a bit of butter to a heated medium skillet (letting it fully melt)) and pour 1/3 cup of batter unto the surface of the skillet.

Cook for about 1-2 minutes (until batter begins to bubble) and gently flip pancake to it’s opposite side, cooking another 1-2 minutes. Be sure to gently press down on pancake to ensure that center cooks through.

Once cooked and lightly brown, remove pancake from heat and repeat steps until all batter is used.

To serve, stack pancakes onto one another and top with dairy-free yogurt or CocoWhip! (optional), and lightly drizzle with maple syrup, if desired.

Bon Appetit!

Tips & Tricks

GLUTEN-FREE VERSION: To make these pancakes GF, I recommend using a GF Flour Blend (Bob’s Red Mills has a great version!). **NOTE: If the batter is too ‘thin + runny’, simply add additional GF flour, 1/4 cup at a time.**
MAPLE SYRUP: I recommend using my go-to brand of maple syrup, Coombs Family Farms
SWEETENER: If you choose to opt out of Agave, you can always substitute with pure maple syrup or pure cane sugar as well.
OIL: Instead of using coconut oil, you can always use vegetable oil or melted vegan butter.
