The Perfect Vegan Ginger Bread Pancakes

Ginger Bread Vegan Pancakes - 2

These pancakes are quite honestly the best I’ve ever had, and guess what? No milk, no egg, no butter – true story.

No, I’m technically not a vegan, but I do try to make as many plant-based meals as possible, experiment with new cooking techniques, and I’m not afraid to ditch the diary when it’s just not necessary!

When I’m not in the holiday spirit, I make these pancakes without the added spices and molasses. But when it’s December, and your daughter has just discovered a love for ginger bread men…you make ginger bread man-inspired pancakes!

How to Make the Perfect Vegan Ginger Bread Pancakes

The key to these pancakes, and any pancakes for that matter, is to not over-mix them! A couple of slow whisks until the batter just combines is all the whiskin’ you need to do!

Printable recipe at the bottom of page. 

Ingredients

Makes 6 medium-sized fluffy pancakes.

First, prepare your “flax egg.” Combine 1 tbsp of ground flax seeds (whole flax seeds pulverized in a blender) with 2.5 tbsp of water and stir. The water and flax will gel-up and resemble the consistency of an egg, hence, “flax-egg.” Set the flax-egg aside.

Combine your dry ingredients – flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt and spices. Set aside.

In a small bowl or measuring cup, combine the wet ingredients – almond milk, molasses, coconut oil and vanilla – with the flax egg, and beat until well combined.

Make a crater in the dry ingredients and pour the wet ingredients in the center. Fold the ingredients together and lightly whisk, making sure to NOT over whisk. A couple lumps are okay.

Melt a tablespoon of coconut oil in a pan and cook, on medium heat, 1/3 cup of batter at a time. Flip when little bubbles appear on top of the pancake.

Top with real maple syrup and enjoy!
