Vegan sugar free pancakes

I’ve written before about how we enjoy “Pancake Sunday” at my house. Since the twins were born, we’ve kind of let it slide – but now that they are experimenting with food I really want it to pick it up again. Usually, my pancakes have protein powder, or at the very least some sugar – but to share breakfast with the kids, I needed to strip the pancakes back to far simpler ingredients. For the past few weeks, we’ve all sat down together and enjoyed these vegan, sugar free pancakes instead.

I have to admit, gone are the lazy Sunday mornings where we leisurely stroll downstairs whenever we wake up. Lie-ins are a thing of the past! However, now our babies can entertain themselves (ish) in their highchairs for 10 minutes. That means I can whip up some family, sugar free pancakes for us all to enjoy. Would I still do it if my husband was away? I don’t know. Probably not. Their moods change very quickly and pancakes require concentration during the cooking stage.

How does a pancake Sunday usually go?

Pancake Sunday doesn’t really differ in routine to most other mornings, except that I cook us all breakfast instead of serving up some toast or something similar to the babies, whilst Adam and I help ourselves to whatever we fancy (I usually have some kind of porridge).

Generally, we’re up by 7 am. By 7.30 am, both babies have been nursed and have had their nappies changed. I like to be downstairs and digging out ingredients by 7.40 am, and serving up their pancakes by 8 am. In an ideal world, they go for their first nap at 8.30 in the morning! Ah, the baby life! Often we don’t get them down ’til closer to 9 am as they’re getting a bit older.

Vegan Sugar Free Pancakes

These vegan, sugar free pancakes are perfect for family breakfasts on lazy weekend mornings. Or, make a batch up ahead of time to delight babies every morning!
Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 15 minutes
Total Time 20 minutes
Servings 10 pancakes


  • 1 tbsp ground flaxseed + 3 tbsp water
  • 1 banana
  • 1 cup self raising flour
  • ½ cup jumbo oats
  • ½ tsp baking powder
  • ½ - 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 cup dairy free milk
  • ½ cup water


  • Mix the ground flaxseed and water together in a small dish and set aside to let it gel.
  • Place a frying pan over a medium heat and add a splash of oil - you'll want it to be nice and hot for when you add the pancakes.
  • Meanwhile, mash the banana in a large bowl. Add the flour, oats, baking powder and cinnamon and the flax 'egg' mixture. Give it a good stir.
  • Add the dairy free milk (I like to use Oatly Barista for the babies) and the water. You should have a nice, thick mixture.
  • For small pancakes, use about 2 dessert spoonfuls per pancake. Dollop the mixture into the hot frying pan and let cook for about 2-3 minutes, or until the pancakes form and burst small bubbles. Then flip and cook for another 2 minutes, or until golden brown.
