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.
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.
Once all ingredients are well combined after stirring with a spatula, stop mixing. Remember, you want airy, fluffy pancakes—not chewy pancakes due to the gluten formulating from over-mixing.
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.
I’ve been guilty of this in the past. Be patient and don't flip the pancakes until the bubbles have ‘popped’ and opened into holes. This means that all of the bottom is formed and OK to flip. Otherwise, your pancake might fall apart when you try to flip it.
That’s that. Follow these simple tricks and those pancakes on your table are sure to be perfect for everyone!
Maple syrup: Drizzle with pure maple syrup for classic sweetness.
Chopped nuts: Add a delightful crunch with chopped walnuts or pecans.
Dairy-Free Yogurt or CocoWhip: Creamy and tangy, perfect for a luxurious touch.
Chocolate chips: Indulge in sweetness with a sprinkling of chocolate chips.
Fresh berries: Add a burst of freshness with strawberries, blueberries, or raspberries.
More Vegan Rainbow Sprinkles: Because why not!

Yes, you can use any dairy-free milk you like to make these delicious dairy-free vegan pancakes. Here are some easy recipes to make your own milk that’s cheaper and so easy!
Baking is such a science, but more importantly because certain ingredients like your leaveners (aka baking powder + baking soda) are completely fresh so that your banana cake (and other baked goods) fully rise and bake through nicely.
Incase you weren't aware, there's an easy to double check both the baking powder and baking soda. Here's what you need:
-Add 1 teaspoon baking soda with ¼ cup vinegar or lemon juice in a bowl and if it's fresh, the mixture should "bubble/fizz". If no bubble/fizz is present, then your baking soda needs to be replaced.
-Add 1 teaspoon baking powder with ¼ cup Hot tap water in a bowl and if it's fresh, the mixture should "bubble/fizz". If no bubble/fizz is present, then your baking powder needs to be replaced.
Yes! You can make this recipe gluten-free with a simple swap. Simply replace the flour with a gluten-free flour blend (I recommend Bob's Red Mill brand). If the batter is thinner than you'd like, add more flour, ¼ cup at a time until it is thick but pourable.
Of course! If you want a healthier twist, you can use natural food coloring or add chopped fresh fruits like berries or kiwi to add color and natural sweetness.
Yes, you can! Prepare the batter the night before and store it in the refrigerator. In the morning, give it a quick stir before cooking the pancakes.
Instead of melted vegan butter, you can use vegetable oil or coconut oil, if preferred.
Absolutely! If you have any leftovers, you can store them for later enjoyment. Let the pancakes cool completely, then place them in an airtight container or a resealable plastic bag. They can be kept in the refrigerator for up to 2-3 days.
If you’d like to make these dairy-free pancakes, you can freeze them for up to six months. Simply cool the pancakes to room temperature, then arrange them in a single layer on a baking sheet. Freeze for an hour, then place in a zip-top bag and keep in the freezer. You’ll have a healthy vegan breakfast to grab anytime.
