Make fluffy vegan pancakes that taste just as good as regular ones! – we’ve used oat or soya milk, baking powder for extra lift and a little coconut oil for richness.

Make your own oat milk with our recipe here. An easy, creamy milk alternative for vegans – simply use rolled oats and water, blend together and strain through a muslin. To keep it vegan, use maple syrup as a sweetener.



  • plain flour 150g
  • baking powder 1 tbsp
  • oat or soya milk 150ml
  • maple syrup 2 tbsp
  • vanilla extract ½ tsp
  • coconut oil ½ tbsp melted and cooled, plus another 2 tbsp for frying
  • maple syrup to serve


  • Step 1

    To make the pancakes put the flour and baking powder in a bowl and stir together. Mix together the milk, maple syrup, vanilla and coconut oil.

  • Step 2

    Gradually stir the wet ingredients into the dry until you have a batter. Leave to sit for 3 minutes.

  • Step 3

    Stir the batter again and pour into a jug.

  • Step 4

    Heat a non-stick frying pan with a little more coconut oil. Cooking 2 or 3 pancakes at a time, pour in enough batter to make small, 10cm American-style pancakes. Leave to cook until you see bubbles forming on top of the pancakes, then flip and cook for another 2-3 minutes.

  • Step 5

    Keep warm in a low oven while you make the rest. Serve stacked and drizzled with maple syrup.
