Vegan waffles and pancakes don’t need to be complicated with any special flours or kitchen equipment. Did you know Bisquick is vegan? Krusteaz Blueberry Pancake mix too! Both are great options for vegan waffles and pancakes, but since pantry space is at a premium here with all of our restaurant-sized bags of flour floating around for homemade bread, we just mix up our own. You can even do it the night before!
I’ve tried many different recipes with many different flours, fruits, and pieces of kitchen equipment to varying levels of success, and while many were good, none were as good―or toddler approved―as the super simple recipe my husband makes for us on the weekends.
Serving size is so relative, but this makes two batches in our fifteen-year-old six waffle Villaware waffle maker. They also worked great in our Mickey waffle maker before it lost any semblance of nonstick abilities (ignore the owner’s manual; never use spray oil in your waffle maker! Even from Trader Joe’s!) and always make a nice pile of pancakes that all comfortably serve two hungry adults and a toddler with a nice toddler snack left over. They’re a great thing for cooking with toddlers!
Add some scrambled tofu (perhaps leftover from making these vegan breakfast sandwiches,) fruit, and veggie sausages and you could easily get more servings out of it. My husband prefers to measure by weight on our kitchen scale, so I’ll include those measurements too. He swears it’s easier and faster once you get the hang of it, and it’s certainly more accurate.
Adam's Quick & Easy Vegan Waffles and Pancakes
- 300 g bread flour
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 4 tsp baking powder or 1 tbsp + 1 tsp if you like extra dishes
- 1 tsp iodized salt
- 20 oz plant milk we use Kirkland Signature Plain Soy, any will do
- 28 g canola oil or 24 g of shortening or refined coconut oil melted
Mix dry ingredients and wet ingredients respectively, combine, then pour into your hot pan or griddle and serve with your favorite toppings.
I change it up according to my mood. Powdered sugar, peanut butter, homemade plain soygurt with fruit, hemp seeds, apricot syrup, etc., while our toddler prefers them plain and my husband doesn't understand why anyone wouldn't just use maple syrup. Enjoy!
