Many breakfast meals are rich in dairy and to some that’s exactly what they want. But, not everyone want’s that and look for dairy free options. Well here we are, offering an awesome almond milk pancake recipe!

Are you a fan of pancakes? Do you pour way too much syrup on them like me? Well what about trying them without milk?

The normal recipe for pancakes require milk to mix them, but sometimes you run out and forget to grab some on your grocery trip (definitely not speaking form experience). So what do you do? Well if you’re me, you use the almond milk you find in the fridge and discover what an amazing and healthy alternative it is!

Can You Make Pancakes with Almond Milk?

Yes you can make pancakes with almond milk as a substitute to dairy milk. In fact, the pancakes I made with almond milk were slightly sweeter and a bit more flavorful than those used with animal milk.

Can You Make Pancakes with Coconut Milk?

Absolutely! Another great dairy free substitute for pancakes is coconut milk. While this recipe uses almond milk, the same could be substituted with coconut milk for a slightly different, but still sweet taste!

Dairy Free Pancakes

There aren’t any other uses of dairy in this recipe. The only milk used is Almond Milk which is plant based. 

You may be asking, “what about butter?”. Another alternative here is if you plan on coating the pan or would usually use butter in the batter, different kinds of oils can be used as a substitute. The alternative oils you could use include olive oil, canola oil, sunflower oil, or coconut oil. 

Egg Free Pancakes?

I do want to clarify these aren’t egg free pancakes. This means the pancakes are NOT VEGAN and I’m not claiming that at all!

If you want vegan pancakes, simply take the eggs out of this recipe and substitute them with more almond milk or another egg substitute. 

Ingredients & Directions

almond milk pancake ingredients

The ingredients are minimal and will take roughly five minutes to combine/mix. Flour, egg, oil, sugar, baking powder, and of course almond milk are all it takes to make dairy free pancakes!

The first step is mixing together all of these ingredients until the pancake batter is smooth and there are no lumps! (picture below)

Heat the pan you want to cook with on medium heat with a little oil. Once the oil begins to shimmer, you’re ready to make your almond milk pancakes!

Depending on how big you want you pancakes will determine how much you pour. If you want pancakes like mine (4-5 inches in diameter), I use a 1/3 cup to pour the pancake batter into the pan. 

Cook the pancake until it begins to bubble like this.

Then flip the pancake and cook for the same amount of time on the other side! On first flip, your pancakes should look like the one below!

Continue cooking all your pancakes and serve!

Almond Pancake Toppings

These pancakes won’t naturally be the sweetest pancakes you’ve ever had. If you want a sweeter taste, I recommend adding at least powdered sugar and maple syrup. What you put on your pancakes is entirely up to you though! Below are a few extra suggestions for pancake toppings!

  • Butter
  • Strawberries
  • Banana
  • Blueberries
  • Powdered sugar
  • Syrup
