Blueberry Coconut Vegan Pancakes
How in the world did I used to not like pancakes? Lately, I’ve been in so love with a big stack of weekend pancakes and these blueberry coconut vegan pancakes are no exception.
Blueberry, coconut, maple syrup…need I say more?
Made with whole wheat flour, unsweetened coconut and plenty of berries, these vegan pancakes are filling and delicious. They’re really easy to make with ingredients you probably already have on hand.
I’ve really gotten the hang of vegan pancakes. My simplest recipes being 4-Ingredient Fluffy Vegan Protein Pancakes and my Whole Wheat Fluffy Vegan Pancakes, both recipes only require a few ingredients and can be made in minutes. Now what to put on pancakes? There are so many options!
Toppings for Vegan Pancakes

As for replacing eggs in recipes like these vegan pancakes, I almost always use flax eggs. To make a flax eggs, add 1 tablespoon of ground flax seed with 3 tablespoons of water, stir to combine and let sit for 5-10 minutes until thick and gooey. Now you have a flax egg! Make sure you use ground flax seeds rather than whole flax seeds, otherwise you’ll just have some seeds in water!
- Mix the flax egg and set aside.
- Mix the dry ingredients in a bowl.
- Add the wet ingredients, including the flax egg and mix together until “just mixed.”
- Drop heaping 1/4 cup sized portions into a lightly-oiled non-stick skillet on medium-high heat.
- Spread a spoonful of frozen blueberries into each pancake as it cooks.
- Once a few bubbles appear and the sides look browned, flip.
- Cook for another 3-4 minutes.
- Remove from pan and enjoy!
- Makes 6-8 pancakes.
I hope you enjoy this vegan pancake recipe. They are just bursting with blueberry flavour and perfect for a cozy, weekend morning. They’re also incredibly filling and will keep you powered-up well into your day. I enjoyed my stack with a delicious Americano and after I relax a little longer I’ll be heading out for a long run on this spectacular Vancouver winter day. Weekend bliss.
