Quick & Easy Vegan Raspberry Pancakes

I love easy recipes; especially the ones that require only a couple of ingredients and can be made quickly. Even better is when that recipe is healthy.

As I pointed out previously, I have a deep, profound love for pancakes. So when I discover a simple and healthy pancake recipe, I get very excited.

Heat up a pan on low/medium heat and coat the pan with butter, cooking spray, or as I used, coconut oil. It is all personal preference!

Pour batter onto the pan. Once on the pan, break up the raspberries into smaller pieces and sprinkle on the pancake while it is cooking.

Cook on each side for 2-4 minutes, or until lightly browned.

Once cooked add your favourite toppings and enjoy! I went plain this time around but feel free to get creative.

  1. I tried out this recipe for a brunch over the weekend. I had several vegetarians, one lactating mom who had to avoid dairy, soy, and nuts and a few regular meat and potatoes breakfast eaters. Quite the challenge to come up with something that all would enjoy! Your pancakes turned out beautifully and were a big hit. They were light and fluffy as pancakes should be and full of flavor. Even my picky partner who hates all things ‘vegan’ loved these and told me afterward that I could make them again soon. Thank you for sharing your recipe!
