There is not a day that goes by where I do not want to eat pancakes.

Whether it’s a stack of fluffy cottage cheese pancakes, oatmeal protein pancakes, healthy gluten free buckwheat pancakes or gluten free paleo sweet potato pancakes, I do not discriminate. Give a stack to me and I will douse it with sugar (not maple syrup because I’m weird like that and don’t like soggy pancakes) and GO TO TOWN.

But these pancakes?

Honestly, these are the best vegan pancakes you will ever eat. They are loosely based on the whole wheat healthy pumpkin pancakes which are equally delish if you’re feeling pumpkin.

Mr. FFF and I both tasted them and our eyes LIT UP because holy WHOA. They are soft, SO FLUFFY and SO flavorful yet somehow, they have no eggs and are filled with magical, healthy whole-grain goodness!

re pancakes vegan?

Typically, pancakes are NOT vegan because they use eggs to bind them together and make them fluffy and light, as well as milk for the liquid. But THESE healthy vegan pancakes are vegan because they are totally egg free and use nondairy milk instead of cow’s milk!

How to Make a Vegan Egg

Just like in the eggless chocolate chip cookies, we’re using a mix of water, neutral flavored oil and baking powder to make the egg. This works well because it provides the fat that egg typically provides, the lift that egg provides, and the oil also gives some really amazing flavor to these easy healthy pancakes vegan. 

Ingredients Needed

Like most pancakes, you need a few basic ingredients to make these happen in your life:

White whole wheat flourSugarSaltWaterAvocado OilBaking powderVanillaAlmond Milk (or check out how to make oat milk and use that instead!)

How to Make Healthy Vegan Pancakes

Making these pancakes is SUPER simple and quick. Perfect for weekend breakfasts or even meal prepping and freezing ahead!


Mix the dry ingredients – the flour, sugar and salt- together in a small bowl.


Whisk together the water, oil and baking powder to make the “egg.” Then whisk in the vanilla and almond milk


Add the dry ingredients into the wet and stir until JUST combined, but still a little lumpy


Cook on a 300-degree griddle for 3-4 minutes per side!


Douse with maple syrup and go to town!

Top Tips for Fluffy Pancakes

There are 3 main tips to remember when you want to make BIG, fluffy pancakes and they are the key to knocking this healthy vegan pancake recipe OUT OF THE PARK:

Don’t over mix

Just like the whole wheat blueberry muffins, you want to mix your batter until JUST MOISTENED. You should still see very tiny lumps in the mixture. Don’t go to town and whisk until totally smooth.

Don’t let the batter rest too long

Letting the batter rest can kill your baking powder, preventing your pancake from rising!

Don’t press your pancakes down

After your flip your pancakes, you will see that the center puffs up when it starts to cook. DO NOT PRESS IT DOWN or you will press some of the air out, leaving flat, lifeless pancakes!

Get creative!

I made these plain and think they are the BEST healthy vegan pancakes, but you could mix them up! Some great additions would be:

Dairy free chocolate chipsBlueberriesDiced apples (maybe with some cinnamon?)NutsToasted coconut flakes

Really, these pancakes are YOUR canvas and I guarantee you’re going to be making them again and again!
