Fluffy Vegan Sourdough Pancakes

These pancakes are so fluffy, light, and perfectly soft. With a hint of tanginess from the sourdough and touch of sweetness from coconut sugar.

  • ¼ cup fresh sourdough starter
  • ½ cup non-dairy milk
  • ½ cup whole wheat flour
  • ¼ cup almond flour
  • 1 tbsp flax seed meal
  • 2 tbsp water
  • 2 tbsp melted coconut oil
  • 1 tbsp coconut sugar
  • ½ tsp baking powder
  • ¼ tsp salt


  1. To a large mixing bowl, whisk together sourdough starter, milk, and flours until smooth. Cover with a towel and let sit at room temperature for 30 min-1 hour. The longer you let it sit out the more ripe the flavor will be. Preferably, let it sit out overnight, but if you're impatient like me then 30 minutes will do.

  2. In a small bowl, combine flax seed meal and water. Let sit for 5 min. Then add flax egg to the bowl with the starter along with the rest of the ingredients. Stir until a smooth and slightly thick batter forms.

  3. Heat a large skillet or griddle over medium heat. Add a dollop of coconut oil to prevent sticking. Pour ¼ cup batter on to the skillet. Spread to a circle with the back of the spoon if needed. Cook until the edges start to become matte (about 1 ½ minutes). Flip and cook for an additional minute or until golden brown on each side.

  4. Top with preferred toppings, such as berry compote, fresh fruit, and/or maple syrup.
