Looking for a quick and tasty plant based breakfast? Wanting something that the whole family will enjoy, vegan or not? These whole wheat vegan pancakes are a perfect option for a weekend morning.
Made with easy to find pantry ingredients, you can have light, fluffy, healthy pancakes in minutes! No oil, eggs, or dairy necessary!
Ingredients needed for these whole wheat vegan pancakes:
This is a list of the ingredients in these pancakes. The measured amounts are in the recipe card below.
- Whole wheat pastry flour – to make these gluten free, a gluten free flour blend can be substituted
- Baking powder
- Ground flax seed – an excellent source of Omega 3 fatty acid.
- Non-dairy milk – I use plain unsweetened soy milk, but feel free to use your favorite non-dairy milk
- Maple syrup
- Apple cider vinegar
These oil free vegan pancakes take only minutes to whip up, so they’re perfect for weekends, or even a weekday morning. Since they’re made with whole wheat flour, they have plenty of fiber to fill you up and keep you satisfied.
HELPFUL TIP: To cook these pancakes without oil, you’ll need a good quality non-stick pan or skillet. My favorite non-stick skillet is this Ozeri Stone Earth pan. I’ve been using this pan frequently for over two and a half years now, and nothing sticks to it!
Variations and serving suggestions:
- Stir some fruit into the batter, such as blueberries, raspberries, chopped banana, or diced strawberries
- Add some chocolate chips to the batter for chocolate chip pancakes
- Top with maple syrup, or with my Easy Vegan Berry Sauce.
- Make this a full meal by serving with my Tofu Scramble and my Vegan Breakfast Sausage Links.
How to store leftover pancakes:
Leftover pancakes can be stored in the refrigerator for a few days. You can also make a double batch of these pancakes and freeze them for easy breakfasts. Just place them in an air tight container or ziploc bag and squeeze out as much air as you can. You can place a piece of parchment between the pancakes to keep them from sticking together.
