Nothing says a yummy weekend breakfast than a big batch of good ol’ pancakes. Am I right?

Traditional pancakes usually have next to no nutritional value and are delicious, but not filling whatsoever. That’s why these Vegan Blender Pancakes are perfect for your whole family. Not only can you feel confident in feeding your loved ones a nutritious breakfast, but you won’t need to feed everyone again in an hour.

How do I make vegan pancakes?

Okay, so how do you make vegan pancakes? It’s way simpler than you think. Almost as easy as normal pancakes, just involves a few more ingredients. 

Step One: Add all the ingredients

Add all your ingredients with the exception of the chocolate chips and coconut oil to your blender.

Step Two: Blend away

Blend up those ingredients in your blender until there are no clumps. No one wants clumpy pancakes!

Step Three: Time to cook 

In your cast-iron skillet, add the coconut oil and heat it up on medium-high heat before pouring your batter in to make your pancakes. Each pancake will need about 3 minutes per side to cook. 

Step Four: Serving

Serve these bad boys however you’d like. Here are some ideas: 

  • Top with fresh fruit 
  • Top with your favourite nuts 
  • Serve with fresh yogurt 
  • Make them for dessert and serve with whipped cream & ice cream
  • The traditional way with syrup

What is the best vegan protein powder to use?

This one is simple. I love to use Vegava Vanilla Protein for these Vegan Blender Pancakes. This is a new vegan protein powder on the market but I love it because it’s:

  • 100% vegan
  • Made with 100% natural ingredients
  • Comes in compostable packaging
  • Tastes amazing
  • Comes in a ton of different flavours like Maple Brown Sugar + Peaches & Cream

I picked a simple vanilla flavour protein for these pancakes because I like to keep things classic. However, feel free to get creative with your favourite protein powder flavour. 

What is Vegava Protein Powder made from?

I said 100% natural ingredients, so what does that mean? Well here is what this great vegan protein is made from: 

  • Pea protein isolate
  • Brown rice protein isolate
  • Hemp protein isolate

… yep, all things you can pronounce and are good for you!

I promise when you whip these pancakes up you will not be disappointed. Let me know your favourite way to eat pancakes in the below comments!
