Vegan Pancakes are an excellent breakfast alternative for vegetarians and vegans. It is egg and butter free yet easy and healthy. I have tried making vegan pancakes in the past with very little success, but now I can make them easily.
In the past, the pancakes would burn or cook on the outside but remain uncooked in the inside. However, now they cook well, and my family enjoys them. I hope you will find them delicious too.
These vegan pancakes are hearty and are excellent to eat occasionally with your breakfast. I do not recommend eating them daily as they can add extra pounds to your waistline unless you leave out the sugar during their preparation.
I did not use any vegan butter, flax meal and baking soda in this recipe but they still turned out great. However, feel free to substitute or put any other add ons if you like.
These pancakes taste amazing; they are soft, fluffy and satisfying. They are great for the family breakfast. You can have them with a delicious smoothie, hot coffee or tea.
What to substitute for eggs, flax meal butter, and dairy milk
Probably you are wondering if you can make fluffy vegan pancakes without eggs and dairy. Yes, you can, it is very possible. I was skeptical at the beginning but with time I have learned to make them without eggs. You do not really need eggs to make your pancakes.
You need baking powder, some vegetable oil (I used grapeseed oil) and plant-based milk. When you use the right measurements, the ingredients will bind and combine well.

What to use instead of brown sugar to make vegan pancakes
You can still make delicious vegan pancakes without adding refined sugars. Sugar substitutes including honey, maple syrup, stevia, apple sauce, blackstrap molasses or coconut sugar can be an excellent alternative.
