Vegan Pancake Recipe

With Pancake Day fast approaching on 1st March, recipe box service Gousto has come up with a round of delicious, pancake recipes that are vegan, dairy-free and gluten-free.  

Their top Chef, Jordan Moore, has also given his top tips when making pancakes using dietary substitutes.

The delicious pancake recipes are the following:

  • Dairy-free Banana and Coconut Pancakes
  • Gluten-free pancakes with a spinach and ricotta cheese filling
  • Go-to Vegan Pancake Recipe

Senior Chef Moore’s top tips for making free-from pancakes:

  • When it comes to gluten-free flour, the best ones to use are rice, buckwheat or coconut flour. For dairy alternatives for milk you can use almond, rice, soya or coconut milk.
  • Adding protein like nuts and seeds to your pancake will help to maintain your blood sugar, keeping you fuller for longer.
  • For best results, use a non stick pan and make sure to heat up the frying pan before adding the mixture, topping up the oil between cooking each pancake.
  • Use butter, coconut or rapeseed oil for frying.
