Basic Milk Free and Egg Free Pancakes


Thank you, thank you!

To the thousands of you who loved and shared our waffles made with just water. 

Who would have ever guessed such a basic, simple recipe would become one of our best!

So to show our gratitude, we’ve taken it a bit further. 

You all got me thinking. If waffles with water are so good…why not PANCAKES made with just water?! 

And the big secret here is…the recipe ingredients are exactly the same. Shhhhhh, don’t tell. 

My family likes to think waffles and pancakes are two totally different things. HA!

Same batter, two breakfasts. 

So let’s get to it, shall we?

Pancakes With No Milk or Egg



Makes 18 Mini Pancakes

Serves 4

Feel free to double the recipe and refrigerate half the cooked pancakes for another day. 

They reheat in the microwave or toaster oven really well. 

Cook once, eat twice!


No Egg, No Milk Pancakes!



2-1/2 cups white flour
4 teaspoons baking powder
4 tablespoons sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
2-1/2 cups water
5 tablespoon coconut or vegetable oil
1 teaspoon quality vanilla


Vegan Milk-Free Egg-Free Pancakes That Just Take Water!



Combine the dry ingredients in a large bowl:

2-1/2 cups white flour
4 teaspoons baking powder
4 tablespoons sugar
1/4 teaspoons salt

Combine the wet ingredients in a medium bowl:

2-1/2 cups water
5 tablespoons coconut or vegetable oil
1 teaspoon quality vanilla

Then incorporate all the ingredients together, just until moist.

Don’t over mix.

Let the mix sit for five minutes so it will thicken up a bit. 

Preheat a pancake griddle (affiliate link) on the stove at medium heat. 

Pour batter onto griddle using a 1/4 measuring cup.

When the pancakes start to bubble and steam, check the bottoms.

When the bottom of the pancakes are golden brown, flip them with a spatula.

Cook the second side of the pancakes until they are golden brown, as well.

Take off the griddle when both sides are golden brown and the pancakes are cooked through.

Serve hot topped with your favorite dairy-free butter, syrup, berries, dairy-free whipped cream, etc.

Hope you love these simple dairy-free, egg-free, vegan pancakes as much as we do!

Would like to have nutrition information for these pancakes

I have been handling allergies for 6 years now -and I WISH I had found this recipe back then! It is by far the best eggless/dairy free batter I have tried. My partner ended up throwing the standard batter out, and using the kids one instead 😆

You made our day, Bec! Thanks for sharing! :) So glad you have a new go-to. Note, it makes great waffles, too!

Greetings! I'@m overstuffed right now. My batch of pancakes were so delicious that I couldn't put them away. I halved the recipe and still had twelve medium sized pancakes. I even left a bit in the bowl to be rinsed out. I didn't have the vanilla but found it totally unnecessary. The pancakes were sweet, of a nice texture and just plain delicious. I tried one without the butter and syrup I like on my pancakes and was delighted to find that I could have eaten them plain. The bit of butter and dip of syrup was simply a nice compliment. These could be served with a light jelly spread, peanut butter, smashed banana, or even a spoonful each of the sweet Italian sausage that I like. I could eat more for dinner (but I won't!). Thank you so much for the recipe!

Oh Barbara, you're so sweet to leave this note. So glad you enjoyed! Sometimes I think they taste like an ice cream cone, ha ha. Did you catch that???

I use 1 to 1 flour, and the batter is thick, and the center doesn't get cooked all the way and suggestions to get the batter not so thick.

@Brandi, put them in the microwave for 30 second intervals to get the middle don

@Jamie Kaufmann, thank u for the suggestions.

In that case, I would add more dairy-free milk 1 tbs. at a time until it's a thinner batter. Hope that helps. Also, lower and slower cook when the batter is thicker helps, too. :)

Could the oil be emitted?
