Vegan Vanilla Pancakes (soyfree) 10


School holidays are great for relaxed family breakfasts, definitely different from the flinging toast at the Peachicks as they get in the car that usually happens around here!  These Vegan Vanilla Pancakes are soyfree as well as containing no dairy or eggs!  have a delicate vanilla flavour thanks to the vanilla bean paste which goes well with a lot of toppings.  Today we had a melon and mango hanging around so paired the Vegan Vanilla Pancakes with a lovely lime & ginger melon salad!

These Vegan Vanilla Pancakes use ground chia seeds as an egg replacer, I use a coffee grinder to blitz them into a powder and mix with the flour.  That way there is no crunchy seeds throwing off the soft, fluffy texture and no need to faff around making a flax egg (which I REALLY do not like!!)

The Peachicks LOVE pancakes and the older two can tolerate eggs in normal ones but little Elodie definitely can’t! I already have a couple of vegan recipes on the site, but I can’t resist having a play around with new ones! Vegan Apple & Raisin pancakes flavoured with golden syrup and Vegan pancakes served with doughnut peaches & warm ginger syrup!  You can find some more vegan pancake inspiration over on the Pinterest board!

For me the best part about pancakes is everyone can choose their own toppings! Just stick a stack of pancakes in the midde of the table with a load of different toppings and watch breakfast harmony* reign.  Also these would be great when the little people have playdates as the kids have loads of fun making their own pancake stacks!

*I can dream can’t I??!!

As the weather was good we ate outside in the sunshine! It was really nice just to have a bit of down time with the girls, we sat eating and chatting for ages; it was nice to catch up!  Here is a picture of our breakfast in action as apparently it was ESSENTIAL for the recipe!!

The Melon salad was lovely, very refreshing, although how the girls tasted it having drowned it in chocolate sauce I will never know!!  The chocolate sauce is Sweet Freedom Choc Shot, it was a freebie in the Allergy Show goodie bags and has quickly become a favourite in our house!

Recipe:

So onto the recipe.  This amount make 14small pancakes which was enough for me and the Peachicks once all the melon had been piled on!  The recipe doubles really well and in addition the pancakes store brilliantly in the freezer, layered with greaseproof paper so its definitely worth making a big batch!  I even cook them from frozen either in frying pan over a low heat or in the microwave for about 30seconds!

Fluffy Vegan Vanilla Pancakes
These fluffy Vegan Vanilla Pancakes are delicious served warm with chocolate sauce and mountains of seasonal fruit. Particularly perfect with crushed frozen raspberries and a ginger, lime melon salad.
Course: Breakfast
Servings: 14 small pancakes
Ingredients
For the melon Salad
  • 1 melon I used Orange Candy Melon
  • 1 tsp Grated Fresh Ginger
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • 1 handful Frozen Raspberries Crushed
  • 1 Mango
For the Pancakes
  • 1 1/2 Cups Self Raising Flour
  • 1 Tbsp Ground Chia Seeds
  • 1 Tbsp Sugar
  • 1/2 Tsp Vanilla Bean Paste Extract works fine too!
  • 1 Tbsp Pure Dairy Free Melted
  • 1 1/2 Cups Koko Dairy Free milk/other non-dairy milk works too
Instructions
  1. Make the melon salad first so that it has time to marinate in the lime & ginger!
For the Melon Salad
  1. Peel and chop the melon into small chunks and add to a large bowl.
  2. Squeeze over the lime juice and stir in along with the grated ginger.
  3. Gently crush a handful of frozen raspberries and sprinkle over the melon.
  4. Set aside in the fridge to marinate while you make the pancakes!
For the Pancakes!
  1. In a large bowl stir together the dry ingredients (flour, chia seeds & sugar).
  2. In a separate jug whisk the melted butter, vanilla extract and Koko together.
  3. Slowly stir the wet ingredients into the dry until you get a smooth batter.
  4. Heat a non-stick frying pan over a medium heat and add the batter a cookie scoop at a time. If you like perfectly round pancakes, pour it in the middle of the pan and push the batter round into a circle.
  5. Cook until the top of the pancake is set (takes a couple of minutes) and then flip. Cook on the other side for a further 30-60seconds.
  6. Decorate the pancakes however you want and enjoy!!

    Yum! These look so delicious – hard to believe they are vegan and soy free! I love that you can use chia seeds as an egg replacer – I had no idea! I keep hearing such good things about chia seeds 🙂 And I am very intrigued as to what a flax egg is…should I ask? But the thing I really love about your recipe is that garden scene – it so captures the essence of summer holiday bliss! I love that you had such a happy time in the garden eating pancakes in your PJs – so lovely! Thanks for sharing with #CookBlogShare 🙂 Eb x

      Thanks Eb! No best not to ask what a flax egg is, def not one to google images of! LOL! We do miss our sunny garden breakfasts when its cold and damp again, although then the Peachicks move on to having pizza parties around the BBQ instead! x

    Ooh these look so delicious Midge, they certainly don’t look as though they’re egg and dairy free. I really do need to try the chia seeds as an egg replacement – it absolutely fascinates me. And I completely agree with the Peachicks that your relaxed breakfast scene image was absolutely essential 🙂

      Thank you! Definitely give them a go – you can make the flax egg but to be honest I have found it better to grind them into a flour and add a tablespoon or two to the self raising flour! It was alovely way to eat breakfast! X

    Thankyou for posting this on #freefromfridays I’m having to limit foods at the moment and dairy, soya, egg are proving difficult as too is maize and potato! Going to try these … Funny how you crave things when you’re told you cant eat them!

      Youre welcome lovely! yes its always the way… I have become very allergicto peanuts but I used to love them and really wish I could eat a peanut butter sandwich sometimes!! x

      The Peachicks love blueberries with their bacon & maple syrup pancakes, but hubby has banana with it!! OR they’ll have baked beans wrapped up inside a pancake! All a bit for me, I like them with fruit or just lemon & sugar for a treat!
