Vegan pancakes? Good. Vegan apple pancakes? Even better! When it comes to breakfast, there's no reason to skimp just because you are vegetarian or vegan! Apple pecan pancakes, prepared with soy milk and a bit of tofu, are healthy, high in protein and fiber and, of course, taste absolutely scrumptious. This recipe for apple pecan pancakes is both vegetarian and vegan, making it egg-free and dairy-free too.

  • 1/2 cup ​tofu (soft/silken)
  • 1/3 cup vegetable shortening

  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg

  • 1/3 cup pecans (chopped)
  • 2 tablespoons oil (more or less as needed for frying)
