Vegan Oatmeal Pancakes

Vegan Oatmeal Pancakes

Serves 4

30 minutes or fewer

As the first person out of bed in her house on Saturday mornings, Mary Shore savors the time to ease into the weekend. “We try to keep cooking simple so the relaxed mood lasts through the morning,” she says. These winning pancakes came out of her desire to develop a vegan version of her favorite restaurant pancakes: “My mom taught me to substitute a little vinegar in milk when there was no buttermilk in the house, and the cider vinegar in soymilk here has the same effect of lending a little zing.”
  • ¾ cup Silk Original Soymilk
  • 2 tsp. Bragg Unfiltered Organic Apple Cider Vinegar
  • 1 Tbs. Now Real Food Maple Syrup, plus more for drizzling, optional
  • 2 tsp. canola oil, plus more for oiling pan
  • ½ cup Now Real Food Rolled Oats
  • ½ cup whole-wheat flour
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • ¼ tsp. salt

1. Combine soymilk, vinegar, maple syrup, and oil in small bowl. Add oats, and let soak 5 to 10 minutes.

2. Stir together flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt in separate bowl. Stir soymilk mixture into flour mixture.

3. Preheat large skillet or griddle over medium-high heat (400°F), and lightly coat with oil. Ladle 1/4 cup batter into pan for each pancake. Cook 2 to 3 minutes, or until bubbles form on top and sides are a little dry. Flip, and cook 1 to 2 minutes more, or until browned on both sides. Drizzle with maple syrup, if using.

Why is it necessary to include alcohol in pancakes etc. No need. As many people don't want to eat or drink that contain alcohol.

requires a lot of maple syrup to be edible!

I made these as directed. I do agree with some of the comments. The pancakes are very bland, so the addition of some flavorings would be a good idea; depending on personal preference of course. I had added a bit of vanilla, but I will also try cinnamon and nutmeg as suggested in other comments. The need to double the recipe was also noted. I only got 4 pancakes by following the recipe as directed. Thank you for submitting the recipe!

Yum! These turned out great for me except needed an extra minute on the griddle. This is a great base to tailor to your taste.

Wow were these delicious! I did use 1 cup of soy milk and honey instead of maple syrup. I also added some cinnamon and nutmeg. Thanks.

The vinegar in this recipe is used to create a reaction with the baking soda/powder. It helps to produce a lighter end result. Any non-dairy beverage can be substituted for the soy. I used rice milk and did up the amount to 1 cup. I let the liquid with vinegar sit for 10 min. before I added the oats. The brand names are not necessary, use whatever is in your pantry. I find these pancakes take a little longer to cook than an egg version. Quite good and a bit hearty because of the oats. My yield was 10 pancakes.

I'm not sure what purpose the Organic Apple Cider Vinegar served. I would add more liquid next time and maybe some cinnamon or pure vanilla extract. Berries, something as these were definitely quite bland and a bit dry. It's a base of a recipe you can work with to create your own healthy vegan pancake to your liking:)

This recipe is TERRIBLE!!!!! I just wasted ingredients and time into this thing. Followed it exactly. DO NOT MAKE THIS RECIPE!!!

The recipe is delicious- but the servings are misleading. For a family of four, this made 5 pancakes (so basically only my sons were able to have pancakes for breakfast, my husband only had 1 and I had none). Remind people to double the recipe for a family of four!

Love the Vegan recipes... not just Vegetarian... thanks! Will make them this week!!

Jill - 2014-09-11 00:25:32

Jeez... Can you put any more brand names in a recipe???
