Shrove Tuesday (aka Pancake Day) is on Tuesday 5th March this year, but vegans can’t eat pancakes can they? Wrong! Just because you’re vegan doesn’t mean you have to miss out on the yummy stuff! Discover some tasty vegan inspiration for Pancake Day…
The Four Pancake Ingredients
Milk, flour, eggs and salt… said to symbolise four points of significance at Easter; these are the four ingredients for the perfect pancake. Nowadays with so many people choosing to avoid diary for ethical or health reasons, what can be used to substitute these? Almond milk, gluten free chickpea flour and easy egg replacer can all be used instead of the traditional ingredients.
Here are our top five vegan recipes for delicious pancakes, some of which are gluten free too:
