Easy Vegan Pancakes

I love when everyday household items turn out to be 'accidentally' vegan.  Bisquick, a staple in most homes, is one of those products.  I have made pancakes from scratch a million times, but, truth be told, Bisquick makes a damn good pancake.  That includes vegan pancakes, too.

I have been craving pancakes for a while which is sort of weird because I rarely eat them. In fact, I cannot remember the last time I had pancakes. I will make them for the family sometimes on weekend mornings, but I almost never eat them myself.

I recently ran across a recipe for an easy vegan Bisquick pancake and so I decided to give in to that craving and have some pancakes.  They were good-nice and fluffy with a nice vanilla flavor. I fancied mine up a little by sprinkling some brown sugar on the top right before eating.  Yum!

Easy Vegan Pancakes

2 cups Bisquick
2 tsp baking powder
2 tbsp organic, unbleached sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1 1/2 cups non dairy milk (I used So Delicious Unsweetened Coconut Milk Beverage)

To serve:
Maple syrup
Brown sugar for sprinkling (optional)

Mix all ingredients together in a large bowl and whisk until well combined.

Heat a nonstick skillet or griddle over medium heat. Spray with cooking spray.  Ladle pancake mix into the pan according to the size you want the pancakes. Allow to heat for about a minute or two  and then flip the pancake (you will know they are ready to flip when you start to see bubbles that in the pancake leaving behind a small hole).  The pancakes should be golden brown on both sides.

Serve with maple syrup and sprinkle with brown sugar, if desired.


  1. Best pancakes ever.....

  2. Wonderful; thanks for the recipe. I added 2 Tbl of melted margarine and some cinnamon to the batter which resulted in a richer flavor. Incidentaly, throw on some fresh bluberries when the pancakes are almost ready to flip and you have great blueberry pancakes.

    1. Glad you enjoyed! I like your additions.
