Vegan Pancake Recipe | Light + Fluffy

It’s kind of hard to believe that you can actually make a light and fluffy pancake without using any eggs, milk or butter BUT you can, and you will definitely be excited about how delicious they are.

The secret to a light and fluffy vegan pancake is baking powder.

You’ll be using an entire tablespoon for this recipe, which may seem like a lot, but it’s the key to making these pancakes super fluffy.

Just be sure to let the batter sit for a few minutes before cooking to ensure the baking powder has a chance to activate.

Oh! And of course feel free to add your favorite stir-ins to these pancakes.  Bananas, chocolate chips, + chopped up strawberries are some of the favorites in our house.
