I have a confession to make – I have a thing for pancakes. Like all of them! Covered with maple syrup, sprinkled with some crunchy nuts and that slightly melted butter on top…yess!

While I really loved the famous banana-oats pancakes (which is the easiest thing to cook in the whole world—ever!), even back when I wasn’t vegetarian, I kind of got bored with them. Furthermore, after going vegan, I just couldn’t figure out how to get nice fluffy pancakes without using the eggs. So I’ve just written the pancakes off my vegan diet. Oh, how I missed them!

As it turns out, the answer was quite simple –vegan eggs. Of course! I’ve been using them for baking for quite a while, and they work quite wonderfully. However, when it came to pancakes, I just returned to an old pattern and saw the banana-oats thing as my only option. I couldn’t be more wrong.

So vegan eggs are super easy to make – 1 tablespoon of flaxseed meal and 2 ½ tablespoon of water. Mix and let it stand for 5 minutes. Done! Add it as an equal substitute of 1 egg in almost any recipe! How cool is that?

Finally, the star of the show – Healthy Vegan Pancakes. I love how simple and satisfying they are. On the one hand, you probably won’t get much time to make them during your busy weekday morning (although prepping them a night ahead and freezing might be a great idea!). At the same time, they are definitely the best weekend treat you can find out there. All it takes is 15 minutes, and you’ve got the most delicious and healthy breakfast of all.

Now the only question left is PB or maple syrup (I say BOTH!). Also, if you happen to be a fan of dates, try to sweeten your pancakes with a 3-ingredient homemade date syrup (I’ll add a quick tutorial below).

That’s it for now and hope you enjoy your first days of spring! xx Anastasia

This easy recipe for whole-wheat pancakes will brighten up even the most cloudy morning (or afternoon for that matter). Sweeten it up with a 3-ingredient vegan date sauce and get ready to fall in love!


For pancakes:

  • 1 flax egg (1 tbsp (8 g) flaxseed meal + 2 1/2 tbsp (45 ml) water)
  • 1 tbsp (15 ml) melted coconut oil (or grape seed oil)
  • 1 tbsp (15 ml) maple syrup
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • sea salt
  • 1 cup soy milk
  • 3/4 cup (90 g) whole wheat flour
  • 1/4 cup (30 g) oat flour
  • 2 tbsp oats (17 g) or 2 tbsp chopped nuts of your choice

For date sauce:

  • 1 cup pitted dates (140 g – about 8 medium dates)
  • 2 cups of hot water for soaking + 1 cup of water for the sauce
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon


  1. Prepare the sauce. Pour hot water over the dates in a bowl and let sit for 10 minutes to soften. Drain.
  2. Put the dates and 1 cup of water into a blender and add cinnamon. Blend until smooth.
  3. Now to pancakes – to a large mixing bowl, add flax egg. Add melted coconut oil, maple syrup, baking soda, baking powder, salt and whisk to combine. Add soy milk and whisk again.
  4. Next add whole wheat flour, oat flour and oats (or chopped nuts) and stir until just combined. Let batter rest for 10 minutes.
  5. Preheat a skillet. Lightly grease a skillet with oil of your choice (I’ve been using non-stick pan with no oil).
  6. Pour about 1/4 cup of the batter onto the skillet. Flip when bubbles appear in the middle and the edges turn slightly dry.
  7. Cook for about 2 minutes more on the other side. Repeat for the rest of the batter.
  8. Drizzle with date sauce or sweetener of your choice and serve!
