School holidays are great for relaxed family breakfasts & These Perfect Vegan Vanilla Pancakes have a delicate vanilla flavour thanks to the vanilla bean paste.  They go well with a lot of toppings but a lime & ginger melon salad is a definite favourite around here!  These Vegan Vanilla Pancakes are soyfree as well as containing no dairy or eggs!

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 Granulated sugar
  • 1/2 Tsp Vanilla Bean Paste Extract works fine too!
  • 1 Tbsp Pure Dairy Free Melted
  • 1 1/2 Cups Dairyfree milk milk/other non-dairy milk works too


  • Make the melon salad first so that it has time to marinate in the lime & ginger!

For the Melon Salad

  • Peel and chop the melon into small chunks and add to a large bowl.
  • Squeeze over the lime juice and stir in along with the grated ginger.
  • Gently crush a handful of frozen raspberries and sprinkle over the melon.
  • Set aside in the fridge to marinate while you make the pancakes!

For the Pancakes!

  • In a large bowl stir together the dry ingredients (flour, chia seeds & sugar).
  • In a separate jug whisk the melted butter, vanilla extract and Koko together.
  • Slowly stir the wet ingredients into the dry until you get a smooth batter.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Decorate the pancakes however you want and enjoy!!
