Can you make vegan pancakes? Yes, absolutely! It's true, you can make perfectly good vegan pancakes without eggs or even milk! This vegan pancake recipe uses soy milk (or any other vegan milk substitute you prefer will also work) as a substitute and the result is perfect light and fluffy pancakes.

Some people (like me!) love the flavor of pancakes cooked in vegan margarine or a vegan butter substitute instead of oil, so experiment and see if you prefer melting some margarine in a pan instead of cooking your pancakes in oil. My favorite vegan butter substitute? Earth Balance, by a long shot. Coconut oil also smells delicious when you're cooking up a batch of homemade vegan pancakes. 

If you want something beyond the basic vegan pancakes, you might also want to try this recipe for vegan blueberry pancakes or a sweet vegan pancake recipe with strawberries. Or, if you're really in the mood to try something different, here's a great recipe for vegan apple pecan pancakes. Enjoy!
