In recent years, the culinary world has seen a surge in the popularity of plant-based diets. Veganism, once considered a niche lifestyle choice, is now embraced by a wide audience, including those with a penchant for a hearty breakfast. Pancakes, an all-time breakfast favorite, are no exception to this trend. In this article, we’ll explore the art of crafting Fluffy Vegan Pancakes that rival their traditional counterparts in both taste and texture.

Historical Context: Pancakes have a rich and diverse history that spans centuries and cultures. From the ancient Greeks’ Laganon to the French crêpes and American buttermilk pancakes, these griddled delights have evolved and adapted across the globe. The advent of veganism brought about a new wave of creativity in the pancake world, with cooks seeking to replicate the airy fluffiness and golden-brown perfection without using any animal products.


  1. Dry Ingredients:
  1. In a mixing bowl, combine the all-purpose flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Whisk them together to ensure even distribution of ingredients.
  1. Wet Ingredients:
  1. In another bowl, whisk together the almond milk, vegetable oil, and vanilla extract until well combined.
  1. Combine and Mix:
  1. Gradually pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients while stirring gently. Mix until just combined, being cautious not to overmix. A few lumps are perfectly fine and will result in fluffier pancakes.
  1. Preheat the Skillet:
  1. Place a skillet or griddle over medium heat and allow it to preheat. You can test if it’s ready by sprinkling a few drops of water on the surface; they should sizzle and evaporate.
  1. Grease the Skillet:
  1. Lightly grease the skillet with a small amount of oil or cooking spray to prevent sticking.
  1. Pour and Cook:
  1. Using a ladle or measuring cup, pour about 1/4 cup of the pancake batter onto the hot skillet for each pancake. Leave some space between each one to allow for spreading.
  1. Cook Until Bubbles Form:
  1. Let the pancakes cook until you see bubbles forming on the surface and the edges begin to look set. This should take about 2-3 minutes.
  1. Flip and Cook the Other Side:
  1. Carefully flip each pancake using a spatula and cook for an additional 1-2 minutes, or until both sides are golden brown and the pancakes are cooked through.
  1. Keep Warm and Serve:
  1. As you finish cooking each pancake, you can keep them warm in a low oven (around 200°F or 93°C) until you’re ready to serve.
  1. Serve and Enjoy:
  1. Serve your Fluffy Vegan Pancakes with your favorite toppings, such as maple syrup, fresh fruit, or vegan whipped cream.
