If you’ve been a long-time follower, it’s no mystery that my Almond Flour Pancakes have been one of my most popular recipes of all time. 

Because many of you have an egg allergy or follow a vegan lifestyle, I thought it only appropriate to re-make my classic almond flour pancakes into a vegan version. 

The swap for eggs couldn’t be any easier – I simply whip up two “flax eggs” using ground flax seed and water as a replacement.

Serve these beauties up with a dollop of vegan “butter” spread and pure maple syrup (or regular butter if you can do dairy), and dive into the fluffiest, moistest egg-free pancakes that ever did exist!

How To Make Paleo Vegan Pancakes:

Begin by preparing the flax “eggs.” To do so, stir together 2 tablespoons ground flax seed with 6 tablespoons of water in a bowl. Allow this mixture to sit for 10 to 15 minutes, or until it thickens to the consistency of a beaten egg. Note: I like to stir the flax mixture every few minutes to make sure it has a uniform consistency and doesn’t clump up.

Add in the almond milk and vanilla extract and whisk until well-combined. Add in the remaining (dry) ingredients and stir well until a thick pancake batter forms.

How to make grain-free vegan pancakes

vegan pancake batter

Heat a non-stick skillet or griddle to medium-low heat and add just enough coconut oil or avocado oil to coat the surface. 

Measure out ¼ cup of pancake batter and pour it onto the hot surface. Note: the batter will be very thick, so use your finger to form a circular pancake shape in the batter, as it will not spread on its own.

Cook for 2 to 3 minutes, or until the sides of the pancake firm up and the center appears to be set up as well. Carefully flip and cook an additional 2 to 3 minutes, or until the pancake is cooked through in the center. 

Serve pancakes with choice of toppings, and enjoy!

Cooking Notes:

These pancakes are slightly more difficult to flip than regular pancakes, and they do take a big longer to cook. 

Go into making the recipe with the expectation that you will need to exercise some patience throughout the cooking process. There will be no air bubbles rising to the top the way you get with regular pancakes. 

You’ll know it’s time to flip them when the sides begin to firm up and the center of the pancakes are a little firmer as well. When you flip, do so slowly and carefully, or else the pancakes will break apart.

Do not omit the tapioca flour – it is crucial in holding the pancakes together. You can replace it with arrowroot flour, but either one is a key ingredient to the recipe. The pancakes will not turn out well without tapioca or arrowroot.

Are Vegan Pancakes Fluffy?

YES! These pancakes turn out delightfully fluffy. They also turn out super moist and buttery in flavor – you’d never know they are gluten-free and egg-free!

How to Store Leftover Pancakes:

Store any leftovers in a zip lock bag or a tupperware container in the refrigerator or freezer.

Recipe Adaptations:

  • Replace almond milk with any type of milk. Full-fat canned coconut milk is crazy tasty!
  • Substitute hazelnut flour for the almond flour.
  • Use arrowroot flour instead of tapioca flour. Remember: do not omit the tapioca flour (or arrowroot) or the pancakes will not hold together.

      Hi Hannah,

      My apologies! That was a typo, as I don’t typically add pure maple syrup to my pancake batters, although it wouldn’t be a bad idea!..I fixed the recipe 😀 xo

      My apologies, Patricia! That was a typo – there’s no pure maple syrup in the pancake batter. Unless of course you want to add a teaspoon or two. 😀
