Growing up, quick and easy pancakes were always the way to go. Rushing to get ready for school, my mom would be doing everything to get the family up and running, so pancakes for breakfast before school was always a big add on for her routine of getting my sister and me ready, but she pulled it off. Luckily there was bisquick, and it really made pancakes a whole lot easier. So that was the flavor I’ve grown to love when I think of pancakes! Every bite is like a childhood flashback. Now I’ve known that these pancakes were not vegan, but what I learned recently was it’s only because of the eggs and milk in the mixture; bisquick itself if completely vegan friendly!! So because there are so many non dairy milks that work, all I had to do was figure out what to use for an egg… Guess what?! YOU DONT EVEN NEED TO USE THE EGG WITH BISQUICK!!
Now all you have to do is take your basic bisquick recipe and skip the egg and sub out your preferred milk. I like to use vanilla almond milk because it adds a sweet flavor, and I like a sweet pancake!
The recipe is 2 cups bisquick and 1 cup of milk. I also sometimes add a pinch or 2 of cinnamon and a few squirts of chocolate syrup. You can also add vanilla extract, or any other flavored liquid you’d prefer. If you’re going for full on chocolate pancakes, it’s a real treat to add some vegan friendly chocolate chips, I crush them up even more so the batter is easier to work with and not as chunky, but if you feel that you can handle the task with full chips, go for it!
Fry them up in a frying pan coated with vegan butter, and keep them under a medium fire. Cook until a nice brown on both sides and fully cooked through. If you made the chocolate pancakes, just keep a close eye and try and see when they are fully cooked; it’s a little harder because of the darker color but you’ll be able to see it.
Get creative and fancy with this recipe and add on to it all you’d like! You can’t make too many types of vegan pancakes, and the more options you create, the better breakfast opportunities you’re creating for yourself. And if you have kids, I’m sure they won’t mind the different delicious pancakes they can enjoy as well, fully cruelty free! Peace, Love, Grub!!
