Although I’ve never really thought of pancakes as unhealthy food, I have never managed to make them without eggs. Until now! Read on for a delicious vegan pancake recipe.
These pancakes are entirely healthy, as they are dairy-free, don’t contain any refined sugar or grains and are free of eggs. I decided to give up eating eggs after reading several studies on the health risks of egg consumption 1, 2. I replaced the eggs with unsweetened apple sauce and the milk with soy milk. I also added a little bit of maple syrup to the batter to make it sweeter. An additional benefit: you will notice that after eating these, you will feel much less stuffed compared to when you eat ‘normal’ pancakes (if you ever do). You can add blueberries, banana, nutritional yeast or vegetarian bacon to the batter, or anything else you like, to make a lot of different pancakes.
How do you vegans make your pancakes? Any other great egg or milk substitutes that work well? Let me know in the comments!
