This Almond Milk Pancake recipe is great for lazy weekends or to welcome family visiting! Easily adjustable with the additions of fruits, nuts, chocolate chips, and more in the pancake batter, make sure to share this recipe with friends and family! 

Ingredients:

  • ¾ Cup + 1 Tablespoon Almond Milk
  • 1 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract
  • ½ Teaspoon Salt
  • ½ Teaspoon Baking Soda
  • 2 Teaspoons Baking Powder
  • 2 Tablespoons Pure Cane Sugar
  • 1 Cup All-Purpose Flour

Equipment:

  • Oil Spray (To Grease Skillet)
  • Spatula (To Flip and Scoop Out Pancakes)
  • Whisk
  • Skillet
  • Measuring Cup
  • Measuring Utensils
  • Mixing Bowl 
  • Large Spoon (To Dish Out Pancake Mix)

Step By Step Instructions

Step 1: Prepare Ingredients

Using the mixing bowl, about medium to large-sized, measure out the salt, baking powder, flour, and baking soda into the bowl. Mix the ingredients until combined. 

Step 2: Preheat The Skillet

To save time while preparing the ingredients preheat the skillet. Set it at medium heat and spray with oil spray to lightly grease the skillet. 

Step 3: Measure The Liquid Ingredients

While the skillet is preheating, measure out the liquid ingredients—the almond milk and the vanilla extract. Combine in the mixing bowl with the dry ingredients. Mix until thoroughly combined. 

Step 4: Pour Measured Batter Into Heated Skillet

Measure out the thoroughly mixed and combined pancake batter and pour in the heated and greased skillet. Cook anywhere from 3-4 minutes until small bubbles start to appear on the top of the pancakes. When you notice the air bubbles, it’s time to flip the pancakes using the spatula to cook the other side. 

Step 5: Reduce The Heat

Reduce the heat to medium-low when cooking the other sides of the pancakes so as not to burn the pancakes. You want a golden brown color to your pancakes, or to your preference, before taking the pancakes out of the skillet using the spatula. 

Step 6: Enjoy!

Once you’ve cooked the desired amount of pancakes, enjoy with your favorite toppings!

Interested in adding a bit of flavor to your pancakes? If you like fruit in your pancakes, simply add blueberries, strawberries—whatever your fruity preference is!–to the pancake batter to mix. Then, cook in the skillet!

The same goes for any other taste preferences! If you like chocolate chips or nuts in your pancakes, you can simply add them to the batter before cooking them in the skillet!
