I love thick and fluffy pancakes. And egg whites are the key to get them like that. This is why It took me so long to find out the perfect ingredients to create a vegan version for fluffy pancakes.

I used raw organic cacao powder to get a rich chocolate flavor without adding too many fats and calories.

Dry ingredients

  • 200 grams flour
  • 20 grams raw organic cacao powder
  • 25 grams potato flour
  • 5 grams baking powder
  • 1 pinch salt

Wet ingredients

  • 250 ml oat milk
  • 120 ml water
  • 4 Tbsp maple syrup
  • 1 tsp vanilla bean paste
  • 1 Tbsp coconut oil, melted


  • 1. In a medium bowl, combine all the dry ingredients.
    2. In a small bowl, combine the wet ingredients.
    3. Pour the wet mixture over the dry ingredients and whisk to combine. Don’t over mix, lumps are fine. Set aside for 15 minutes.
    4. Heat a small non stick saucepan on medium heat. (I used a 12 cm diameter saucepan). Pour about 1/4 cup of the mixture into the preheated saucepan and bake on each side for about 2-3 minutes or until golden brown.
    5. Top with your favorite toppings. I used coconut yogurt, blackberries, blueberries, cacao nibs, chocolate chunks and coconut chips.
