Three Ingredient Pancakes

This is a recipe Animal Aid asked me to make a video for to update their website. I have changed the ingredients slightly as I found it too runny. This is a basic pancake recipe using just 3 ingredients. You can use this a budget breakfast or pimp it up with extra ingredients. I love to add chia seeds, a pinch of salt, vanilla extract and use different flours.
Course: Breakfast
Keyword: pancakes, three ingredients, vegan pancakes


  • 1 cup flour I always use wholemeal
  • 275 ml plant milk
  • 1 tsp baking powder


  • Mix the flour and baking powder in a bowl. Pour in the milk and whisk together. If the batter is too runny add a little more flour. Heat a little oil in a large frying pan on a medium to high heat. Pour in the batter to make 3-4 pancakes. After a minute or so the surface will bubble. Flip the pancake and cook the other side for 1-2 minutes.

    Serve with chopped nuts, fruit, yoghurt, maple syrup or chocolate spread.



TIP: Why not add a scoop of protein powder, ½ tsp of cinnamon or turmeric, 1 tbsp cacao powder or some beetroot juice. You want the batter to be fairly thick so it makes the perfect pancake shape when poured into the pan. Some times if it's too runny I let it sit for 5 minutes so the ingredients soak up the liquid.
