There’s really nothing better than a giant, fluffy stack of these
2019 is the year of working on gluten free/vegan recipes for all of our favorite baking staples, which includes cookies, doughnuts, cakes, muffins, waffles, pancakes (and plenty more!). It’s our mission to provide you with recipes that suit your dietary needs but still taste amazing, which isn’t always the case with gluten free/vegan recipes.
After a few weeks of testing various combinations and recipes, we recently came up with a standard gluten free all purpose flour recipe that we’ve been using in most of our baked goods, and it’s been a total game changer! It’s what makes these gluten free vegan blueberry pancakes so fluffy and delicious. Side note – if you don’t have time to make the homemade mix, we suggest using this store-bought blend.
Our biggest grievance with gluten free/vegan baked goods is usually the texture. Gluten is what makes traditional baked goods so dang good – it provides elasticity and helps dough maintain its shape. It’s difficult to replicate the texture and function of gluten. That’s why
It’s our personal mission to test as many recipes as we can to get as close to that texture as possible, so you can actually look forward to baking, even at breakfast time! Almost all of our recipes are also vegan. This is how we choose to eat, and by making our recipes free from animal products, we can ensure that almost everyone can enjoy them.
These vegan blueberry pancakes are the result of quite a few rounds of testing. We finally got the texture just right! They’re not gummy, gluey, or uncooked in the center (as most gluten free pancake mixes are). Fresh blueberries add a refreshing pop of color and flavor. You can certainly substitute with your favorite fruit (bananas would be amazing) or even chocolate chips! To make this recipe nut free, substitute nut milk for another non-dairy option like oat or soy milk.
