Franny’s Vegan Pumpkin Pancakes

by Kortney Campbell on January 21, 2012

Vegan Pumpkin PancakesSo, our really awesome friend Franny submitted the very 1st recipe through our site and it doesn’t even need to be veg-i-fied!  I met this amazing fella while on a brief contract stint with peta2 & we hit it off instantly.  He currently works for an amazing organization called Feed Our Children NOW! and is, hands down, one of the coolest kids I know- an activist, a creator of all sorts, a lover of Kombucha and a published author with some exciting new things in the works!

Franny’s cooking skills are pretty awesome too.  He shared with us the perfect Saturday morning breakfast food- Vegan Pumpkin Pancakes…Be still my heart.

What You Need:

Vegan Pumpkin Pancake IngredientsDirections:

  1. Combine soy milk with the tsp of vinegar in a bowl. Give it 5 minutes to curdle. This creates a vegan substitute for buttermilk.
  2. In a separate bowl, mix the remaining ingredients before adding the buttermilk substitute.
  3. Once buttermilk substitute has been added and mixed let the batter sit for 5 minutes before cooking.
  4. Pour into a non-stick pan & flip away!

This recipe makes about fifteen 5″ pancakes.

**If you’re feeling a little adventurous, try adding a tsp of sugar, an extra 1/2 cup of pumpkin and about a cup of your favorite oatmeal.

    The mixture is more like dough than batter… I added more milk and water. Since I don’t top my pancakes I think they would have benefitted from some agave added for sweetness.

    Have you baked this in a bread pan? It just may be an excellent pumpkin bread recipe if some sweetness is added to the mix.
