Our Favorite Plant-Based Pancakes

Many breakfast combinations center on pancakes. In addition, America even hosts restaurants named for these delicious quick-bread versions. In fact, most restaurants that offer breakfast include some varieties of pancakes. They just speak breakfast to us. Traditionally, they include dairy milk and eggs. But our Favorite Plant-Based Pancakes provide great taste without the dairy and eggs. And honestly, I doubt anyone misses those ingredients. Moreover, these easy vegan chocolate pancakes offer chocolaty goodness. But the Vegan Sourdough Blueberry pancakes might take ordinary Homestyle Vegan Pancakes to the next level. Still, any of these plant-based pancakes

We bring together 3 of our all-time favorites to offer you choices to start with plant-based pancakes.

  • Homestyle Vegan Pancakes
  • Next is, the Double Chocolate Pancakes
  • Finally, Vegan Sourdough Blueberry Pancakes

Breakfast for Dinner? Plant-Based Pancakes Anytime!


Yes, of my favorite times to enjoy pancakes is for dinner. I’m not sure why. Maybe it’s memories from childhood. Also, Mom served breakfast for dinner on occasion. It gave her a meal that she created quickly after a day helping with the farm and my Dad’s automotive repair business. Moreover,  I think it became even more special when I had kids of my own. In addition, they loved breakfast for dinner! So we set aside special times to prepare this favored meal together.

Whatever the reason, our family shares the love of breakfast for dinner with others. When dining at family restaurants, I often see families with breakfast plates in front of them at dinnertime. Why not try these plant-based pancakes for dinner soon!

  • 2 cups whole wheat pastry flour or use white wheat flour or other whole grain
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • ½ ts[ salt
  • 2 cups oat milk or other plant-based milk
  • 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 2 tbsp flaxseed meal stir into 6 tbsp warm water and let set for 2-3 minutes to create flax eggs
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup or other sweetener

  • Add the flaxseed, maple syrup, and vanilla. Mix well.
  • Pour the milk mixture into the flour mixture. Mix lightly just until the mixture is combined. Do not overmix. Your batter should be lumpy but combined to avoid wet and dry spots. This helps the pancakes cook up light and tender.
  • Heat your griddle and coat lightly with oil or cooking spray.
  • Use a ⅓ measuring cup to pour each pancake onto the griddle. Cook until the top has bubbles and the edges look dry.
  • Flip each pancake over and cook until lightly browned.
  • Serve them hot. Add your favorite toppings. We like them topped with either berry puree or maple syrup and fruit.

Vegan Chocolate Pancakes

It seems every family needs at least one chocolate pancake fan. In fact, probably several reside within most families. In addition, while we like vegan chocolate pancakes as much as we enjoy the homestyle vegan pancakes, our Double Chocolate Pancakes take that chocolaty flavor even deeper. Want a little extra fancy flavor? Try adding bits of cherries. Indeed, chocolate and cherries bring this vegan chocolate pancakes recipe to an almost dessert-like niche!

After trying the Homestyle vegan pancakes and our double chocolate pancakes (see the vegan chocolate recipe above) you wonder if anything comes close to the perfection of those easy vegan recipes. And, in fact, you should keep an open mind and try these vegan sourdough pancakes.

Moreover, our recipe calls for blueberries. However, try your favorite fruit to find your personal version.

Some consider sourdough to be a flavor. Actually, it involves a reaction that causes the batter to rise when cooked. Though difficult to describe, we think you will find it simply delicious.
