Vegan cinnamon pancakes are the perfect weekend breakfast! They’re warm, light, fluffy and taste similar to a cinnamon roll. Add some chocolate chips to the batter for a chocolatey twist. They’re easy to make, full of flavor and require only 9 simple ingredients!
I’ll admit, pancakes never were a favorite of mine. Crispy waffles or a loaf of vegan banana bread have always been preferred over a soft spongy pancake for a weekend breakfast. My family, however, disagrees…..
So, this sent me on a quest to make pancakes even I would enjoy, without much luck at first. Most attempts would end up with the pancake batter stuck to the pan. As a result, I would add extra oil creating a greasy pancake that still stuck.
However, I never give up that easily!
After countless failures, I hopped on the computer and did a little research on why the batter was sticking.
I came across a video saying to cut a potato in half and rub it on the griddle before pouring down the batter. So, I decided to give this potato method a try. The first few pancakes flipped successfully. But as I proceeded with the remaining batter, the pancakes began to stick again.
The potato method didn’t work! It only left the house smelling of hash browns furthering my breakfast hunger. So I came to the conclusion that the pancake batter needed reviving.
After slightly tweaking the batter, and adding a bit cinnamon for extra flavor, my family (me included) has been enjoying Vegan Cinnamon Pancakes every weekend!

Yields 14 pancakes
4 based on 1 review(s)
2 cups unbleached all-purpose flour, sifted
2 Tablespoons coconut sugar
1 full Tablespoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon pink salt
1 tablespoon baking powder
2 cups almond milk
2 teaspoons apple cider vinegar
1 Tablespoon vanilla extract
1 Tablespoons refined coconut oil, melted
- In a glass measuring cup (or a small bowl), measure out the almond milk. Add the vinegar to create a buttermilk. Set aside while you prep the dry ingredients.
- In a large bowl, sift the flour. Whisk the remaining dry ingredients: coconut sugar, cinnamon, salt and baking powder.
- Pour the wet ingredients; milk mixture, vanilla extract and coconut oil, into the bowl of dry ingredients.
- Gently whisk together the batter. don't over mix, small lumps are fine.
- Let the batter rest, for about 3 minutes. This creates a perfect, fluffy pancake so I suggest you don't skip it. In the mean time heat the pan up over medium-high heat.
- Add about 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon of coconut oil to your heated pan/griddle where the pancake batter will be dropped. Oil is optional on a non-stick surface.
- Pour 1/4 cup of batter on the oil. This will help keep the pancakes from sticking.
- The pancakes are ready to be flipped once the edges appear cooked and bubbles form and pop on top.
- Flip and cook on the other side until lightly browned, another minute or 2.
- Serve immediately with maple syrup.
