Why You'll Love These Egg-free Pancakes
- You only need 7 simple pantry ingredients to make these egg-free pancakes.
- This recipe is egg-free, but you can easily make vegan pancakes by using vegan milk.
- These pancakes are so soft and fluffy, people won’t believe they don't have eggs!
- They go perfectly with fresh berries, chocolate chips or a big dollop of whipped cream.
- Milk: I’m using oat milk, but feel free to use any plant based milk or regular milk.
- Sunflower Oil: you can swap out sunflower oil for another neutral oil, or you can use apple sauce or melted butter.
- Flour: I’m using all purpose flour in this pancake batter recipe, but if you’re gluten free you can use all purpose gluten free 1-1 baking flour. You can also use white whole wheat flour, whole wheat flour, or oat flour by weight. If you want to use oat flour, you’ll need 2 cups and 2 tablespoons of oat flour.
- Sugar: you can use regular granulated sugar or coconut sugar.
Step by Step Instructions
Note: Full ingredient measurements and instructions can be found in the recipe card at the bottom of this page.
Step 1: Add the oat milk, vanilla extract and oil to a large bowl and whisk until combined.
Step 2: In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, sugar and salt. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and whisk until just combined. It’s fine if there are some small lumps of flour!
Step 3: Heat a large skillet or nonstick griddle to medium low heat. If you’re using a pan, add a bit of butter to grease the pan or spray with cooking oil.
Step 4: Once the pan or griddle is hot (you can test this by dropping a drop of water, if it sizzles then it’s ready), scoop out ¼ cup of pancake batter and pour onto the pan.
Step 5: Once bubbles start to form on the pancake, use a spatula to flip it over and cook for another 1-2 minutes. Remove from heat and serve with your favorite toppings!
FAQs and Expert Tips
They do! I’ve compared them to my oat milk pancake recipe and I can hardly taste the difference, they are just as light and fluffy.
Add a drop of water to the pan or griddle, if it starts sizzling right away then the pan is ready for pancake batter.
I love adding fresh fruit like strawberries or blueberries, especially during the summer when they’re the tastiest! You can also add nut butter like peanut butter or almond butter, or be extra indulgent and add some cookie butter spread or nutella! It’s also delicious with just some maple syrup.
- Measure your flour: It is so important to measure your flour with a kitchen scale, otherwise you might end up with dry pancakes. If you don’t have a kitchen scale, make sure you use the scoop and level method to measure the flour.
- Don’t over mix the batter: stop mixing the pancake batter once it’s combined, even if there are a few small lumps of flour.
- Flipping the pancakes: keep an eye on the pancakes so they don’t burn, but you also don’t want to flip them too early! Once one side has bubbles on it, you can flip the pancake and cook the other side for 1-2 minutes.
Storage and Freezing Instructions
Store any leftover egg-free pancakes in a Ziploc bag or airtight container in the fridge for up to 5 days.
