Cut the Crepe: Vegan Pancake Recipe

Last week, that lovely Nutella ad-you know the one that features a dozen children all huddled together to make some yummy pancakes, which they later go on to slather loads of delicious Nutella on, quickly made me realise that I need a vegan alternative for pancake day. Life is crepe enough without pancakes 😉

So, I have been trying out a few alternatives and here is what I have come up with:

Vegan Pancake Recipe


  • 1 1/2 cups of flour
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • 2 tbsp baking powder
  • 2 tbsp flaxseed
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tbsp oil
  • 1 1/4 cups of water
  • 1/4 cup of almond milk, soya milk or rice milk-whatever your preference
  • Dairy free chocolate chips-optional


  1. Sift the flour, sugar, baking powder, flaxseed and salt into a large bowl. Add your faux choc chips if desired. Make a well in the centre of the dry ingredients
  2. Whisk your water and milk alternative together and pour into the well in the middle of the dry ingredients
  3. Blend all ingredients together
  4. Place large spoons of your batter onto a pre-oiled pan on a medium heat and flip when bubbles start to form. Brown on both sides
  5. Serve how you like them. I’ll be having mine with a vegan Nutella alternative. There is a great recipe in Rosanna Davison’s book Eat Yourself Beautiful and some health shops even stock premade vegan chocolate spread. Or I might serve them with some strawberries and some coconut cream or some Soyatoo whipped cream depending on my mood.

I hope this post is helpful for those of you looking for vegan pancake alternatives. Have you guys any other great recipes? Let me know in the comments.

    1. They were really good. Made a batch with eggs and milk and a batch without and the hubby couldn’t tell the difference. Deffo give them a try and see what you think 🙂
