The Pancake Stack To Rule Them All


Pancakes…


Doesn’t the word alone just emote a warm and fuzzy feeling inside?


What are some fun things you associate with the word “pancake”?


I think of things like: breakfast, maple syrup, mom’s famous homemade buttermilk cakes, a big glass of OJ…


Until recently, however, I didn’t think of pancakes as a stackable, totally versatile, throw anything you want on ’em kind of meal.


Then that all changed…


Please meet my egg-free, refined sugar-free, but definitely NOT taste free stackable pancakes!



One random afternoon I decided I needed pancakes (they had never been a need before this point). I googled a few different recipes taking into account my food sensitivities, didn’t find any that fit perfectly to my liking, so I combined a few ideas and made my own version!


Below is my Recipe for Egg-free, Refined Sugar-Free, Happen to be Vegan, Stackable Pancakes: 


Understand that everyone’s body processes things a little differently. We all have different sensitivities. These are a couple of mine (egg and cane sugar), therefore I choose to cook without these ingredients for the time being. If you fit this description and cook this way too, awesome! If not, adjust the recipe as necessary to work for your body and let me know how it goes!


What You Need For Pancakes:

  1. 1 1/4 cup All Purpose Flour – can sub gluten free flour

  2. 1 tbsp Monk Fruit Sweetener Or Stevia– I use Monk Fruit Sweetener personally. It acts and tastes just like regular cane sugar. You can buy it on Amazon.

  3. Pinch Of Salt

  4. 1 tbsp Baking Powder

  5. 1 cup Almond Milk – any milk source will work

  6. 2 tbsp Olive Oil – can sub any vegetable oil

  7. 1 teaspoon Vanilla

  8. 2 tbsp Water

What You Need For Toppings:

  1. Oikos Triple Zero Vanilla Yogurt – any flavor will work, I prefer vanilla. If you have different food needs, use what yogurt works for you! It acts as the binding agent. There are many vegan yogurts as well.

  2. All Fruit Jam Spread – You can also mash up berries mixed with a tiny agave and spread them over top (bonus: a homemade easy jam).

  3. Udis Simple Granola – any granola will do.

  4. Honey – skip honey for vegan option


How to Make:

  1. Combine all dry (flour, baking powder, sugar, salt) ingredients for pancakes together in bowl. Set aside.

  2. Combine all wet (milk, oil, water) ingredients in bowl. Set aside.

  3. Pour dry ingredients into wet and stir until just mixed.

  4. Pour batter onto griddle over medium heat. Flip when golden yellow. 

  5. When pancakes are finished place one on a plate.

  6. Scoop one spoonful of yogurt onto pancake.

  7. Scoop about a teaspoon of jelly onto yogurt.

  8. Stack another pancake on top.

  9. Repeat this cycle until you have the pancake stack of your dreams!

  10. Then top with yogurt, granola, honey, and a little more jam.



Voila! Happy brunching!


Be bold. Be inspired. Be you.

With love, Kara
