You may not know this, but Aunt Jemima's original pancake mix is vegan. It's basically enriched flour, sugar, leavening mixture, and salt.
While the recipe on the box calls for milk and eggs, these two ingredients can easily be replaced without sacrificing taste. For the eggs, simply choose between banana or applesauce. Replace the milk with any plant-based milk and you've got Aunt Jemima pancakes—vegan style.
Vegan Aunt Jemima Pancakes
- Prep Time:7 mins
- Cook Time:10 mins
- Total Time:17 mins
- 1 cup Aunt Jemima original pancake mix
- 1/2 cup plant-based milk
- 1/3 cup apple sauce or mashed banana
Combine all ingredients in a large bowl and whisk until mixed thoroughly. Add more milk if necessary. Let sit for at least five minutes for maximum fluffiness.
While your pancakes are fluffing up, put an oiled pan on medium heat. Place evenly-portioned batter on the hot pan and flip when golden brown.
Add your choice of syrup and enjoy!
When my housemate tried these pancakes, she said, "Those taste like normal pancakes!" Whether you're looking to explore some vegan options or just ran out of milk and eggs, give these puppies a try. They won't disappoint even the least vegan of tastebuds.
