So Can You Make Pancakes Without Milk?

The answer is HELL YEAH! I am so happy to share it with you and save your breakfast mornings.

What’s the purpose of milk in pancakes? Milk in a pancake is used to dissolve the ingredients, to add flavor, texture and to provide a liquid structure so basically, any other liquid can do that task.

What Can I Substitute For Milk In Pancakes?

There are other milk substitutes for pancakes that I will share with you having both the flavor and liquid texture. Here are some Plant-Based milk substitutes:

  • Almond milk
  • Oat milk
  • Soy milk
  • Hemp milk
  • cashew milk
  • rice milk
  • coconut milk
  • Water

You should replace the amount of milk required in the recipe with the same amount of plant-based options. If you are looking for a nutty texture in your pancake, almond milk is the answer. 

While if you want to boost your pancake with some extra protein and thickness you should go for Soy milk. If you don’t like extra flavors in pancakes, rice milk is the best option since it is similar to cow’s milk. 

Can You Replace Milk With Water In Pancakes?

Basically using water is the same as using milk but with a few changes, the pancake won’t be soft and fluffy and will taste less creamy. In order to avoid that we advise you to add some oil, vanilla, and a bit of sugar.

Here are some add-in options that add a pinch of flavor: 

  • Cinnamon
  • Vanilla extract
  • Almond extract
  • Orange zest
  • Blueberries
