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!
