  • 2 tablespoons vegan butter
  • 1 tablespoon chia seeds
  • 1 ¼ cup plant based milk (vanilla or plain)
  • ¼ cup applesauce
  • 2 tablespoons agave nectar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 ¼ cup whole wheat pastry flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ¼ teaspoon salt


  • Place vegan butter in a microwave-safe bowl. Heat for 30 seconds in the microwave. Add the chia seeds, milk, applesauce, agave, and vanilla. Stir to combine. Set aside.
  • In a separate bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Stir to combine. 
  • Heat a skillet over medium to medium-high heat. You can either spray the pan with vegetable cooking spray or use a half teaspoon of vegan butter to coat the pan. 
  • Pour the plant-based milk in with the dry ingredients and stir to combine. Some lumps are fine.
  • Once the skillet is hot, pour the pancake batter (using a ¼ cup measuring cup) into the prepared skillet. Cook until bubbles form on the top side of the pancakes. Use a spatula to flip the pancakes and cook on the other side until golden brown. Place cooked pancakes on a plate and repeat this process with the remaining batter.
  • Serve warm with vegan butter, maple syrup, fruit jam, and or fresh fruit. 


Freezing Instructions: Cool pancakes and then place them on a tray in a single layer. Place the tray in the freezer. Once the pancakes are frozen, transfer to a freezer bag. When you're ready to serve, grab one or two of the frozen pancakes and place them in a toaster or toaster oven.
