Easy Apple Cinnamon Pancakes (Vegan)
Happy Sunday morning!
Talk about having a creative cooking weekend! Three recipes in a week! I figured since it’s been awhile since I last made something for breakfast other than overnight oatmeal or ham biscuit sandwiches with a coffee smoothie, why not try pancakes?
So I decided to try making Apple Cinnamon Pancakes! Who doesn’t love pancakes once in awhile? Especially when it’s topped with fresh fruit and drizzled with delicious maple syrup. I decided to use a diced Gala apple as my topping. Of course, it would have tasted better if it was more of a compote but it’s a quiet Sunday morning.
To make this, I mostly followed the directions on Namaste’s Pancake and Waffle mix box but I just replaced the eggs and milk with nondairy/vegan options. You can use any box mix you like really, but just need to adjust the ingredients below to replace any eggs or milk it asks. For the eggs, I replaced it with 1/4 cup of applesauce per egg. You can, however, use any other type of substitution from flax eggs, a chia egg, 1/2 banana per egg, etc. Then for the 1/2 cup of milk, I just used some homemade hemp milk.
This recipe makes about 6 to 8 pancakes overall.
- Namaste Waffle and Pancake mix
- 1/2 cup Nondairy milk
- 1/2 cup applesauce (to replace eggs)
- Dash of cinnamon
- About 1-2 tsp of vanilla extract
- Maple Syrup
- Toppings of choice
- Vegan butter or oil for the frying pan/griddle
- Prepare and measure your ingredients before adding them to a kitchen aid mixer with whisk attachment. (Or can add all the ingredients minus the maple syrup, toppings, and butter, to a regular mixing bowl and just whisk everything together)
- Turn on your mixer to a low setting and mix all the ingredients above with the exception of the last three.
- While your pancake mix is mixing, heat a frying pan or griddle over low heat. Add some butter or spray with oil. Once the pan/griddle is hot enough, take about a 1/4 cup of the now mixed together, pancake mix and add to your pan or griddle. (If there’s enough room, can try making two at a time.) You can add some additional cinnamon to your pancakes in this step too.
- Once your pancakes are starting to bubble, flip your pancake over to brown the other side. Once both sides are brown and cooked through, set on a plate before repeating step 3 and 4. You might have to use additional butter or oil spray to make sure your pancakes do not stick tot he pan/griddle.
- Once your pancakes are all cooked, add your toppings and syrup and enjoy!
