Best-Ever Vegan Easy Healthy Pancakes [GF + Oil-Free]

These Best-Ever Vegan Easy Healthy Pancakes are so delicious, and don’t require many ingredients at all! Suitable for a plant-based diet, gluten-free diet, they are also oil-free and nut-free! Perfect, ain’t it? They sure are! Oh, did I mention that they are also packed with protein and fiber? – Yep, that too!

I was out and about visiting New York. I got up one day and decided to get some vegan breakfast in New York. I found this cute little place that served some epic vegan pancakes. So when I came back, I fancied pancakes, so I made some!

Healthy vegan pancakes made from lentils and sweetened with fruit. These vegan pancakes are high in plant protein from red split lentils, oats, and flax seeds. Free of wheat, nuts, dairy, eggs, oil, and butter so suitable for whole food plant-based diets.

If you are not a lover of a banana, simply sub it for boiled sweet potato or apple sauce!

I love these vegan protein pancakes recipe as it uses no flours and instead uses whole foods that are inexpensive. These pancakes are definitely my number one favorite Vegan pancakes ever! This recipe is both simple and affordable. One serving of 4 pancakes/half of this recipe has 18g of plant protein.

I’m using red split lentils for these healthy vegan pancakes. Red split are very inexpensive and give a great fluffy texture.

    I have made oat waffles with beans and this variation caught my attention. I made these, a bit rubbery and did not rise.
    I am wondering if a tad less flax and some soda would help.

    I followed this recipe exactly, and the texture was fine. But they tasted really bad. What can i add yo make them taste better? I love the concept of lentil pancakes.

      I am sorry that you did not like the taste – I personally loved it. To make it tastier, perhaps use more sweeteners, or add chocolate spread to your pancakes or more maple syrup when eating.
