One thing that I adore is pancakes. I’ve been a pancake fan since I was a little kid. Vegan pancakes really don’t taste any different than regular pancakes, and these are seriously the fluffiest pancakes I’ve ever made. Even out of non-vegan pancakes, these are probably my favorite! The first time I made them, they got so thick and fluffy, I almost thought I did something wrong. So I am really excited to share this recipe post for my best fluffy vegan pancakes!

I have tried to make all sorts of healthy pancakes, including oatmeal pancakes, oat flour pancakes, sweet potato pancakes, and many others, but these simple whole wheat flour vegan pancakes are simple, and probably my absolute favorite. I would highly recommend if you are looking for a traditional, delicious, simple recipe to try these.

What you’ll love about these fluffy vegan pancakes?

  1. They are SO fluffy. Thickest pancakes I’ve ever made. Even including those made with eggs and butter.
  2. Delicious. They are so light and delicious. My go-to recipe for pancakes.
  3. Vegan. The look and taste may not give it away, but they are vegan. 
  4. Easily customized. Omit the cinnamon for a plain flavor, add chocolate chips to have chocolate chip pancakes. The world is your canvas.

How to make these fluffy vegan pancakes?

  1. Mix the flaxseed and warm water together. Set aside for 5 minutes.
  2. In a mixing bowl, add all the wet ingredients, including the flax egg.
  3. Then add the baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, salt, and flour. This recipe can be made gluten-free with a 1:1 substitution with Bob’s Red Mill Gluten Free All Purpose Baking Flour. Whisk this together and make sure there are no clumps.
  4. Heat a small skillet or griddle over medium heat. 
  5. Pour 1/4 cup of batter into a circle and flatten it down some if it doesn’t spread by itself.
  6. Allow it to cook until it starts to get some bubbles forming in the batter. Then flip it with a spatula. This takes about 2 minutes.
  7. Repeat for the bottom. 
  8. Repeat this for all the batter. It will make about 6 pancakes. They are best served fresh, but can also be stored in the fridge for up to 3 days and reheated (microwave, toaster, or even in a pan on the stove).
  9. Make the peanut butter maple spread if you want to use it to top them. It’s a mixture of creamy peanut butter and maple syrup. New dimension on pancake toppings! Otherwise, other topping ideas include coconut whip with fresh fruit, maple syrup, nuts, melted chocolate, or anything else you may like!
