They are EVERYTHING you could possibly want in a pancake.


Golden brown 

Subtly sweet 


I added blueberries to mine but you can add whatever makes your tummy happy. Fresh strawberries would be great, sliced bananas, a few vegan chocolate chips or just plain! They are DELISH just on their own…dipped in a little pure maple syrup.

Are you drooling yet?!

Healthy Vegan Pancakes

Could these be any more irresistable?

Lately, I have been looking for the perfect vegan gluten-free pancake recipe for a while and I think this is truly the one! I adapted this recipe from the Momables blog.

Over the years of being vegan, I have tried different recipes like the one with bananas and only 3 ingredients which I find stay wet in the center and don’t get very fluffy.

Listen, I promise you won’t be disappointed when you make these!

I have now made this recipe for a couple people and it has been a hit every time! No one can get enough of these healthy vegan pancakes.

Honestly, I am not a huge breakfast person and I typically have a smoothie 99% of the time but I wanted to switch things up and have some delicious pancakes in addition to my morning smoothie. It was definitely the right decision.

Additionally, you could probably turn this batter into a waffle as well! If you try it, tell me in the comments if it worked!

You can easily just eat these healthy vegan pancakes plain they are just that good. Also, I had to stop myself from eating them as a I made each one.

This is some seriously stack goals, wouldn’t you agree?!

prep time 10 minutes

total time 25 minutes

the ingredients

  • 3/4 cup gluten-free all purpose flour I used the one from Trader Joe's
  • 1/4 cup almond flour
  • 1 tbsp ground flax seed
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 2.5 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 3/4 cup almond milk Start with 3/4 and see if you need more (max 1 cup milk)
  • pinch of salt


  • Use a non-stick pan to avoid using oil and put it on medium heat 
  • In a mixing bowl, combine the flour, flax, baking powder, cinnamon and pinch of salt.
  • In a separate bowl combine the wet ingredients - maple syrup, applesauce, almond milk and vanilla. Stir to completely combine. 
  • Add the wet ingredients to your dry ingredients and stir until there are no lumps in your batter. If the batter is too thick add 1/4 cup more almond milk. 
  • Start making your pancakes! Measure 1/4 cup for each pancake. Cook them 1-2 minutes on each side or until bubbles have formed and the side being cooked is golden brown. 
  • Enjoy!

    Hi, I’m not able to use all purpose flour of any kind. Is there another type that may work such as almond, coconut or maybe oat flour? Thank you!

      It’s gluten-free all purpose flour. I don’t know if you saw that. I haven’t tried other flours but feel free to experiment and report back!
