Make classic light and fluffy pancakes vegan with this easy recipe. Try them topped with your favourite nut butter, maple syrup and fresh berries for a satisfying breakfast.


  • 1 ½ cups white whole-wheat flour (see Tip)
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1 ½ cups unsweetened almond milk or other unsweetened nondairy milk
  • ¼ cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil, melted
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  • Step 1 Whisk flour, baking powder and salt in a large bowl. Whisk milk, applesauce, oil, sugar and vanilla in a medium bowl. Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients, add the wet ingredients and whisk just until combined. Resist overmixing–it will make the pancakes tough.
  • Step 2 Let the batter sit, without stirring, for 10 to 15 minutes. (As the batter rests, the baking powder forms bubbles that create fluffy pancakes.)
  • Step 3 Coat a large nonstick skillet or griddle with cooking spray; heat over medium heat. Without stirring the batter, measure out pancakes using about 1/4 cup batter per pancake and pour into the pan (or onto the griddle). Cook until the edges are dry and you see bubbles on the surface, 2 to 4 minutes. Flip and cook until golden brown on the other side, 2 to 4 minutes more. Repeat with the remaining batter, coating the pan with cooking spray and reducing the heat as needed.


Make-Ahead Tip: The mixture of dry ingredients can be stored airtight for up to 1 month; the batter can be refrigerated for up to 1 day; cooked pancakes can be frozen airtight, in a single layer, for up to 3 months. Reheat in the microwave or oven.

Tip: White whole-wheat flour, made from a special variety of white wheat, is light in color and flavor but has the same nutritional properties as regular whole-wheat flour.
