Healthy homemade pancake recipe

The word “homemade” often scares people away from a recipe. Just because something is homemade doesn’t mean it’s difficult! In fact, these delicious homemade pancakes come together just as quickly as buying a box of pancake mix and stirring in the extra ingredients, but you get the satisfaction of calling them homemade.

So go ahead--whip up a batch of these cakes, toss some flour on your face and act like it took a lot of effort to make them as you wow your friends and family with your awesome cooking skills. Your secret is safe with me.

Ingredients:

  • 1 ¼ c flour
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • 1 ½ tsp applesauce
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ½ c soy milk
  • ¾ c water
  • sprinkle of cinnamon to taste

Directions:

Mix all ingredients together in a medium-sized mixing bowl until larger lumps are broken up. Small lumps will remain. Do not over-stir the batter otherwise pancakes could turn out tough and thick.

Let mixture sit for about 3 minutes. Heat well-sprayed non-stick skillet over medium-high heat while mixture sits. Pour batter on hot skillet into desired sized pancakes. Let pancakes cook until the top is covered with bubbles (see slide show for reference). Flip and cook an additional 30 seconds or until golden.

Makes approximately 15 medium-sized pancakes.

Tip: Double the recipe and place leftovers in a zip lock bag to freeze for easy eating later. Pancakes will re-heat in seconds.  Check out the slide show for step-by-step visuals.  Enjoy!

    I'm new to the vegan stuff, Jess. What is in regular sugar that could possibly make it non-vegan?

  • Jessica 4 years ago

    Good question...here's what PETA says about sugar:

    "Bone char, made from the bones of cows, is at times used to whiten sugar. Some sugar companies use it in filters to decolorize their sugar. Other types of filters involve granular carbon or an ion exchange system rather than bone char."

    So the sad thing is...some sugar may be vegan, but unless we know how the company filters it, we don't know for sure. Vegan sugar is available at Whole Foods.
