Today is one of my favorite, although slightly underrated, holidays—National Pancake Day! It’s a whole day devoted to what many would argue is the greatest of all the breakfast foods. Whether you like ’em light and fluffy, a little on the gooey side, filled with fruit, or topped with treats, pancakes are the perfect start to any day … or any brunch … or the perfect end to any day!

You can find a ton of totally delish vegan pancake recipes here, but I wanted to share one of my personal faves—Marta’s pumpkin chocolate chip pancakes. Mmmm :)

According to Marta, here’s all you’ll need to devour these delicious, pumpkin-y, breakfast treats:

  • 1.5 cups Bisquick
  • 1 egg replacer (can also use a little applesauce instead)
  • 1/2 cup soy or almond milk (plus a little extra)
  • 1/4 – 1/2 cup canned pumpkin
  • 1/4 tsp. cinnamon (plus a few more dashes)
  • Chocolate chips to taste

Mix everything together, then spray a frying pan or griddle with cooking spray. Pour 1/4 cup of batter at a time (3 pancakes will likely fit in the pan at once), and cook until browned/cooked on the bottom. Flip, and cook until browned. Repeat until all the batter is gone. Serve topped with warmed maple syrup.

Today’s the perfect day to invite over some friends and put your vegan cooking skills to good use! Which pancakes are you going to make?

    Born and bred in Britain. I've always lived with animals and loved finding out new information/ caring about them. I currently do eat meat although I am not a huge lover and I do intend on going vegetarian when I'm older. I've always wanted to support charities and I am the head fund raiser at my school. I am looking forward to supporting Peta and becoming a member of their Street Team!

    I'm crazy weirdo who seems sweet but that can flip like a switch if you get on my bad side.
