Dry Ingredients

  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 2 tbsp brown sugar
  • 2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp ground ginger
  • 1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt

Wet Ingredients

  • 1 tbsp lemon juice or vinegar
  • 1 cup non-dairy milk
  • 1 flax egg
  • 3 tbsp molasses
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil melted
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract


  • In a small bowl, whisk flax egg ingredients (1 tbsp ground flax + 3 tbsp water) and let sit until needed. In a separate bowl, whisk non-dairy milk and lemon juice to create "buttermilk" and let sit until needed (about 5 minutes). 
  • In a large bowl, whisk together all dry ingredients until combined. Then in a medium bowl combine wet ingredients (including flax egg and buttermilk) and whisk together until well-combined. Pour wet ingredient mixture into dry ingredient mixture and stir until just combined and batter is wet and lumpy - don't overmix!
  • Scoop about 1/4 cup batter per pancake on to a skillet at medium heat. Flip the pancake when bubbles form and the underside of the pancake is beginning to brown (you can check this using a spatula). Serve warm with toppings of your choice! Enjoy!
