The perfect Sunday brunch - Vegan chia seed pancakes.

Today I thought I would share with you my favourite Sunday breakfast recipe, fluffy vegan chia seed pancakes. These are so easy to make and they taste so good!

  • 296ml / 1 & 1/4 cup of a non dairy milk (I use almond)
  • 2 tablespoons of lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
  •  140g/  1 cup of plain flour 
  • 2 teaspoons of sugar
  • 2 teaspoons of baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon of baking soda
  • 1 or 2 table spoons of chia seeds


First measure out the milk and add the lemon juice to it and leave it to the side whilst you prepare everything else. The lemon juice will cause the milk to curdle a bit like butter milk and add a nice fresh flavour, but it's not overpowering.

In a bowl mix together the flour, sugar, chia seeds, baking powder and baking soda.

Oil up a frying pan so the pancakes don't stick and put it over a medium heat.

Now you can add the milk and lemon mixture to the bowl along with the vanilla extract and stir everything together until it's all incorporated.

Now all you need to do is pour some of the mixture into the pan and cook it. I usually make around 12 small pancakes and cook them for about two minutes aside. 

Extra tip: If you don't have a large pan, warm up the oven slightly and store the cooked pancakes in the oven to stop them cooling down whilst you cook the rest of the batter.

I really like these pancakes with fruit and maple syrup on top, but you can choose what ever topping you want! 

I hope you enjoy this recipe!

  1. This is so great! I have an obsession with eating pancakes on Weekends so I will definitely be making use of this recipe next Saturday morning :)
    Love how you have tried to make a lot healthier version of an otherwise devilish food :) xx
