Simple Vegan Pancakes

A staple. A must have. A can not live without. A good pancake recipe.

Serves: 4

Prep: 5 minutes

Cooking: 10 minutes

Total: 15 minutes


For the pancakes

  • 1 teaspoon baking powder

  • 1 teaspoon chia seeds

  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup

  • 400ml almond milk

  • 300g plain flour (I use gluten free), you can also use a self-raising flour to make them extra fluffy

  • 50g our Bircher Muesli (or porridge oats)

  • 30g coconut oil, plus more for frying

  • Pinch sea salt flakes

To serve

  • Coconut yogurt (or any plain yogurt you like)

  • Handful of pecans, roughly chopped, about 40g

  • Handful of coconut chips, about 30g


  1. Mix all of the pancake ingredients together to form a smooth batter.

  2. Now make the pancakes. Warm a tablespoon of coconut oil in a pan over a medium heat, once the pan is hot and the oil has melted, spoon in a large tablespoon of pancake batter, using a wooden spoon to spread out the mix.

  3. Cook on one side for 4 minutes before turning and cooking the other side for 2-3 minutes until cooked through. Remove and repeat until all of the batter is finished.

  4. Serve the pancakes warm with a dollop of coconut yogurt and a sprinkle of chopped pecans and coconut chips.
