Vegan Pancakes

These vegan pancakes are the perfect healthy, plant based recipe to start the day! Light and perfectly crispy on the outside. These are vegan, egg-less, paleo, and gluten free. They’re perfect topped with a little powdered sugar and maple syrup. Or some fresh seasonal fruit now that it’s summertime! Chocolate chips would also taste pretty good melted on top. Basically- you can’t go wrong when it comes to these cakes!

I love pancakes ( check out my fluffy banana pancakes and my sweet potato pancakes) and had yet to nail down a good vegan one. The problem was, I just don’t like flax egg pancakes. I don’t mind them in other recipes but in pancakes they just weren’t my thing. But these vegan pancakes don’t involve flax eggs!

Substitution Options:

I haven’t tested a sub for every ingredient but I’ll list some of the easy ones that I have.

For the tapioca flour, you can sub corn starch. Corn starch isn’t paleo though.

For maple syrup, you can sub honey or a sugar free maple syrup.

For the applesauce, you can sub more coconut oil or butter.

For the coconut oil, you can sub ghee or butter.
