Vegan Breakfast: Pancakes

The way that I make pancakes, they are super healthy but still easy enough for breakfast.  If I know that I am going to be in a hurry, I will make up the batter the night before and just throw it on the griddle when I wake up.  Here is my catch-all pancake recipe:

Vegan Breakfast: Pancakes

  • Author: Diane Vukovic
  • Total Time: 10 minutes
  • Yield: 1 serving 1x
  • Diet: Vegan


  • ½ cup whole grain flour
  • ½ cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • A handful of flax seeds
  • 1 tablespoon wheat germ
  • 1 mashed banana (or other fruits, like blueberries)
  • 1 ¼ cup of soy milk (I find rice milk is too thin but almond milk works well)


  • Mix the dry ingredients first. 
  • Then make a well in the middle and pour in the milk.  Start with 1 cup and then add the remaining if needed (the amount may vary depending on what fruits you use). 
  • Mix it just a bit and then add the mashed banana or fruit. 
  • Try to mix the batter as little as possible.  Mixing causes gluten to form and you will end up with really dense pancakes.


To get your protein in, top these pancakes with nut butter.  You can also top them with molasses (great for getting in your iron!), fresh fruit, or natural jams.
