Easy Packet Vegan Pancakes

Easy Packet Vegan Pancakes

This is a quick guide to the packet mixes out there. These are pretty easy to make and the only kit you need is a half decent non-stick pan, whether the traditional Teflon type or one of the new fancy and greener ceramic non-sticks! Plus a good fish slice, plastic or silicone. Whether you want thicker American/Scotch style thick pancakes or thinner, larger crepes - it's up to you, just reduce or increase the liquid accordingly. Start thick and thin down as you need.  

And while this is a breakfast recipe, savoury pancakes are also a nice and easy way to serve some delicious stir-fried vegetables for lunch or supper! 

 

Look out for these brands - some may be available on supermarket free-from shelves, others from health food shops. Most or all of these are GF too. 

  • Ogran
  • Amisa
  • Hale & Hearty Free From Four Grain Pancake Mix (the packet instructions specify an egg but you can add ONE of these instead:
    • 1 tbsp flax meal OR chia seeds mixed with 3 tbsp warm water - it becomes all gloopy and forms a flax or chia 'egg' 
    • OR 1 tbsp gram flour, sieved (also known as chickpea or besan flour)

 

PS It's actually pretty easy and very cheap to make your own vegan pancakes - see our simple recipe here. You can even make it up as a dry mix and store it.  All you have to do is add liquid and oil before making! 

Ingredients: 

Pancakes

  • Plant milk and vegan egg alternative if needed (see above)
  • Plain vegetable oil for frying

Accompaniments
All sorts of possibilities! But here are a couple of ideas

  • Sweet - chopped fresh fruit, syrups eg agave, maple, plain vegan yoghurt
  • Savoury - fried mushrooms and spinach

Method: 

  1. Mix the batter according to the packet instructions. 
  2. Prepare fillings if using.
  3. Heat a frying pan - preferably non-stick - and drizzle in a little oil once it's very hot. A hot pan makes better pancakes. 
  4. Using a ladle or similar, drizzle in the batter, tilting the pan and swirling it slightly to distribute the batter evenly over the pan. 
  5. Fry for a minute or two, then flip, using a fish slice or similar. Each side should be a light golden brown. 
  6. Repeat on the other side. 
  7. Serve hot and eat immediately.
