Vegan Pumpkin Pancakes are perfect for fall, but taste delicious year round! They’re fluffy, delicious and the perfect combo of pumpkin with a little cinnamon spice.
People often ask me why I make so many vegan recipes. There are actually tons of reasons, one being that I have several vegan friends, so I frequently cook for them.
But the second reason is that so many kids today have allergies to a variety of foods, many specifically to dairy and eggs.
Since vegans don’t eat any animal products or foods made by animals such as honey, these dishes are good for some kids with specific allergies. And you wouldn’t even know that they’re vegan by the way they taste. I made these pancakes for a bunch of friends who aren’t vegan and they didn’t know that they were dairy and egg free until they had cleaned their plates .
Light as feathers, but with tons of depth of flavor and added texture from the spelt or buckwheat, these pancakes are a real treat. I actually served them for dessert later that night and the kids had a blast eating them with their hands and dipping them in syrup. See, pancakes really can be enjoyed morning, noon and night!
If you’re looking for more delicious recipes perfect for fall try these Sweet Potato Pancake, Pumpkin Apple Muffins, or Baked Pumpkin Doughnuts. My kids love all things pumpkin and pumpkin spice so we will be making these several times in the coming weeks, I’m sure. They’re comforting and just remind us of fall. Even if it’s still really warm here in LA we still love a good fall-ish recipe.
