I had been on a mission for the better part of the first few months of this year to perfect a vegan pancake or waffle recipe. I had quite a few duds and I wasn’t sure what I was going to figure it out until I finally did.
Since I don’t eat vegan all the time one morning I was searching for a regular pancake recipe to make because since the vegan versions weren’t turning out I still had a craving for them. I found this Martha Stewart recipe on Pinterest and as soon as I saw it I knew I could easily adapt it to a vegan version.
So that’s exactly what I did and it worked like a charm! I love recipes like that that are just so easy and simple that you can easily adapt them however you need. Although I did try these with a gluten-free flour blend and they did not work. At all. They were thin and for some reason really greasy? It was a bit odd.
I actually shot this recipe months ago and I’m only just now posting it but I have been living off these pancakes for the past couple months. I make them so often and since it’s just me I end up with one batch that will last me for breakfast for at least 3-4 days. I love regular pancakes but I well and truly don’t really think you can tell the difference with these.
If you do try this recipe, let me know! Leave a comment and don’t forget to take a picture and tag it #modernlittlevictories on Instagram! I’d love to hear what you think and what you create in your kitchen.
