Paleo Vegan Pancakes are soft on the inside and slightly crispy on the outside. A scrumptious pancake that even those who follow an egg-free AND grain-free lifestyle can enjoy.
Grain-free AND egg-free pancakes? You got it!
A recent request for a Paleo Vegan Pancake recipe followed by an unsuccessful internet search for that perfect pancake recipe prompted me to set out on a mission to create one of my own. During my search, I came across several recipes that were egg-free OR grain-free but not both. I was also looking for one that was free of mashed banana (personal preference because I don’t always want my pancake to taste like a banana) which made the search even more difficult. So eight and a half batches, 32 pancakes later, a sink full of dirty dishes and a belly ache from all of the sampling, these Paleo Vegan Pancakes were finally born. My initial plan was to use the batter from our popular Paleo Vegan Crispy Waffles and simply make pancakes instead. How easy, right?! BUT that didn’t turn out too well and so the tweaking and modifying and sampling began. What I thought would be a simple recipe project turned into something a bit more complex! I’m always up for a challenge…but sheesh.

Paleo Vegan (BLENDER) Pancakes!
My new Ninja Kitchen Blender is put to use on the regular. Almost daily if not several times today. In fact just today, I’ve made a smoothie, a batch of homemade nut milk and these delicious pancakes for tonight’s breakfast for dinner (aka ‘Brinner”)! Blending the Paleo Vegan Pancake batter not only makes for an easy peasy recipe, but also helps to really whip it up resulting in a fluffier, lighter pancake. Because there are no eggs to fluff up the pancakes, blending the batter (along with baking powder and apple cider vinegar) is helpful in creating a fluffy, egg-free pancake.
If you’re looking for a new blender that is more on the budget-friendly end, I highly recommend this powerful blender from Ninja Kitchen. It works wonders! I love that it comes with a 72 oz. blender pitcher for larger recipes as well as two personal sized blender cups for smaller recipes. Best of all, you use the same AutoIQ base for both sizes. Before, I was constantly switching between two blenders depending on the size I needed so I’m pleased to say that those days are in the past thanks to the Ninja Kitchen Blender Duo.
This sauce though!
You’re in for a treat! Our good friend Kelsey from Little Bits of created this must-try, ridiculously tasty and easy Roasted Strawberry Vanilla Bean Sauce! Like the pancakes, this recipe is also whipped together in a blender. It’s made with just 3 ingredients and it’s the perfect topping for my Paleo Vegan Pancakes. For another yummy treat, try mixing the sauce into 6-8 oz. of dairy-free yogurt or chia pudding then topping it with a few dark chocolate chips or cacao nibs! Ummmm…yeah, so good.

Note: thickness or thinness of sauce will depend on how juicy the strawberries are. If needed, feel free to add a little water if you’d like a thinner syrup like consistency.
I couldn’t resist…
Drizzle the Paleo Vegan Pancakes with Roasted Strawberry Vanilla Bean Sauce with warm almond butter. It’s like a “peanut butter” and jelly sandwich…need I say more?! 🙂
Don’t you just want a bite..or three..or eight?!
Make a batch and give em’ a try! And don’t forget the sauce!
- Combine all of the ingredients in a blender. Blend for a few seconds then stop blender and scrape sides and blend for a few seconds longer. You may also make the batter in a bowl however, blending does help to make these egg-free pancakes fluffier as stated above.
- If needed, add additional liquid or flour in small increments (1/2 Tbsp. at a time) to achieve pancake batter consistency.
- On medium/medium high heat pour batter on a greased skillet, about a scant 1/4 cup of batter per pancake.
- Flip when pancakes begin to bubble or spatula easily slips under pancake. Continue to cook until golden brown on both sides.
- Allow pancakes to cool slightly before enjoying.
- Top the desired toppings such as Roasted Strawberry Vanilla Bean Sauce and nut butter.
