Vegan Pancakes 10 ways
With a few tweaks to my mom’s traditional pancake recipe, trading eggs for bananas, I am able to enjoy Sunday brunch again. Keep reading to find out how you can make your pancakes vegan friendly for your next Sunday brunch.
2 cups of all purpose flour
2/3 cup of granulated sugar
1 tablespoon baking powder
2 bananas (replaces two eggs)
1 cup of almond milk
My mom didn’t enjoy the store bought pancake mix but you can also use vegan Bisquick original. Use bananas and almond milk to complete the recipe on the back of the box. Check Bisquick's website for updated information as this information is subject to change.
This recipe makes about 6-8 evenly sized pancakes. Half the recipe makes 3-4
Combine the dry ingredients for the batter in a mixing bowl and slowly add the wet ingredients of applesauce and almond milk.
Scoop the batter into a lightly greased pan. Recipe yields 6-8 pancakes.
Eat & Enjoy!
Eat it plain or put your own twist on the recipe by stirring in your favorite:
1. Peanut Butter (or other nut butter)
Add 1/4 cup of peanut butter or other nut butters. There is no lack of options for nut butters. Choices include sunflower butter, hazelnut butter, walnut butter, cashew butter, almond butter and even pistachio butter. Any type of nut butter can be a part of a healthy diet but peanut butter, almond butter, cashew butter and pistachio butter pack the most heart healthy ingredients. Keep it simple or try a variety.
2. Go Nutty
Add a handful of nuts like pecans and walnuts. Nuts are a great source of healthy fats and a little goes a long way. Be mindful of this ingredient, as a little handful packs a lot of calories.
3. Chocolate Chips
You can't go wrong with chocolate chips. Chocolate chips will have you feeling like a kid again as the chocolate chips melt in your mouth. I used Enjoy brand mini chocolate chips but there are plenty of vegan chocolate options.
4. Berry Good
Add your favorite fruits and berries from blackberries to strawberries. Berries are lower in sugar and higher in fiber than other fruits and are higher in antioxidants. From your more traditional berries like blackberries, strawberries and blueberries to your more exotic berries like goji berries, acai berries and bilberries, these berries are apart of a healthy diet and can be an ingredient in your pancakes. Do not forget about raspberries or cranberries.
Add 1/2 cup of oats to make it hearty and healthy. Oatmeal is loaded with vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. Oatmeal is also bursting with fiber than can help keep you feeling full longer, curving those hunger cravings. Oatmeal has been shown to help reduce cholesterol and is a part of a heart healthy diet.
6. Spice it up
Add some spice with 1 tsp ground cinnamon and a hint of vanilla extract. Try other flavors like pumpkin spice or almond extract for more fun flavors.
7. Add some color
Add some sprinkles for color and fun for the kids or the kid at heart. Use a rainbow of colors or narrow it down to just one color. Who says food can't be fun?
8. Sneak in some vegetables
Add veggies like shredded carrots or pureed pumpkin
9. Protein Pancakes
Add a scoop or two of protein by using Arbonne's vegan chocolate protein powder * or vegan vanilla protein powder * One scoop is 10 grams of protein and two scoops is 20 grams of protein. You can also purchase a sample pack of containing 10 vegan chocolate protein packs * or 10 vegan vanilla protein packs * Click the links to see how you can receive 20-40% off your order and future orders for an entire year.
10. Switch the base
As the seasons change so do the flavors. Switch your base from banana to applesauce for another fun flavor. Add 1/2 cup of applesauce instead of a banana to replace the two eggs.
