The best mornings are those with a high stack of pancakes! I wish every day could be a pancake day. On weekdays this doesn’t come true for me as making pancakes takes some time. But when I do have the time required, it’s truly worth every minute.

Vary the basic vegan pancake recipe according to whatever you happen to have in your pantry to make a different kind of delicious pancakes. Chocolate pancakes are my kids’ favorites; they taste especially nice with bananas and peanut butter.

  1. These pancakes look so AMAZING! And what a great idea to use sparkling water! So many GF pancakes are heavy, but these look light and fluffy!

    1. Thank you so much Laurel!
      Sparkling water gives the baking powder some extra boost and makes the pancakes super fluffy.
