Easy Vegan Pumpkin Pancakes

These easy, vegan, pumpkin pancakes might literally change your life. They are so easy to make, they are refined sugar free, and there's a gluten-free option. I really don't think this recipe even needs an intro so I'll keep it simple... I just want to let you know that it's worth the hype. I created this recipe for my 'Recipe of the Week' subscribers. I send out a new recipes straight to your inbox every Sunday morning at 9am PST. Interested in checking it out? Click here.


Makes 12 squares (one full sheet). Ingredients:

  • 3 cups plant milk (I used oat milk)

  • 3 tbsp apple cider vinegar

  • 3 cups all-purpose flour (or sub-gluten-free flour, I like this one)

  • 3 tbsp baking powder

  • 1 tsp sea salt

  • 2 tsp vanilla extract

  • ¼-1/3 cup maple syrup, or 1/4 cup sugar

  • 1/3 cup melted coconut oil

  • ¾ cups pumpkin puree

  • 3 tsp ground cinnamon (or more to taste)

  • 3 tsp pumpkin spice (you can easily make your own or just omit altogether)


  • Preheat oven to 425F.

  • Line the baking sheet with parchment paper.

  • In a medium-sized bowl combine apple cider vinegar with plant milk and let stand for 5-10 minutes.

  • In a large bowl whisk together flour, baking powder, cinnamon, pumpkin spice, and salt.

  • Add vanilla, maple syrup (or sugar), pumpkin purée and the melted coconut milk to the almond milk mixture and whisk until smooth.

  • Pour into the baking tray and bake for 10-12 minutes or until lightly brown on top.

Every week I am going to try and give you some extra tips that can take the recipe to the next level. I want to keep the original recipes simple so that more people have the skill-set to recreate them with success but I know lots of you are probably ready for something slightly more advanced. Let's go.

  1. Bulk it up: Top with coconut whip cream. Is this a level up or is this a necessity? I know the answer but let’s see what you think.

  2. Up your garnish game: Add crushed walnuts, raisins or pecans to the batter and save some to add on top.

  3. Vegan Cream Cheese Icing: 1 tbsp plant milk, ¾ cup icing sugar, 2 tbsp vegan cream cheese? Add more or less liquid to get the consistency you want. Also, don't forget that maple syrup.
