Expert Baking Tips on how to make pancakes without an egg
Although this is the easiest recipe for pancakes , here are just a few expert tips i'd recommend:
- Mix your dry ingredients before adding in the wet to ensure it’s fully combined.
- Make a well/dip in the dry ingredients before pouring in the wet ingredients and mix gently in the centre until fully combined. This will prevent any large lumps and pockets of flour from forming.
- Grease your pan with oil or dairy-free spread before pouring it on the batter to prevent it from sticking.

How to make pancakes with ingredients - Ingredients for pancakes mix
Here's everything I used to make this pancakes recipe no eggs
Vegan butter - You can use either vegan block butter, margarine or oil. This will be used to grease the pan to prevent the pancakes from sticking and help with flipping the pancakes.
Plant-based milk - I used oat milk, but any other plant-based milk like almond or soy will work the same.
Banana - This is the egg replacer that adds sweetness and helps bind the ingredients together along with the plant-based milk.
Flour and Baking Powder - If you were wondering what makes this a fluffy blueberry pancakes recipe . It is because this is a pancakes recipe with self raising flour. And the addition of baking powder with the SR Flour is what allows these pancakes to raise when cooked and create that fluffy interior.
Blueberries - You can’t make these dairy free blueberry pancakes without them!
Maple Syrup - If you were wondering what goes with blueberry pancakes - the answer is always, maple syrup and that goes for all types of pancakes. As these pancakes don’t include any sugar in the batter it really needs something sweet to lift them up. As maple syrup has its health benefits, it would be my recommendation to make these into a healthy blueberry pancakes for one.

How to cook a pancakes:
Your pancakes are ready to flip when the batter on top is no longer runny with only small patches of raw batter. You may also see the sides of the pancake begin to brown.

Finally serve with some more blueberries and your desired amount of maple syrup.

There's so many different flavors you can create to make your own recipes for sweet pancakes. Here are some examples:
