Pancake Day is coming up- and I love to celebrate every year with a big pile of vegan American-style pancakes or crepes!
If you're a vegan, it's a common misconception that you can't enjoy the food served on special days such as Christmas, birthdays or Pancake Day.
However, I'm here to tell you that's just not true!
Yes, you might have to avoid a few ingredients or alter your favourite recipes slightly, but you can still enjoy tasty treats like everyone else.
Most restaurants and cafés also cater to vegan diets these days, too!
In this blog post, I've put together 5 delicious vegan pancake recipes to try out this Pancake Day.
I hope this post can give you a few ideas, whether you're a new vegan, you're just trying out the lifestyle or you've been following a vegan diet for years!
1. Vegan Banana Pancakes
Banana pancakes are a quick, delicious pancake recipe for your Pancake Day celebration. If you don't have much time or you want to make pancakes with the kids, these are the perfect choice!
Ready in just 10 minutes, these banana pancakes are completely dairy-free and eggless, perfect for vegans.

2. Green Matcha Pancakes
Matcha is a tasty and versatile ingredient, and it can be used to add a bit of colour and flavour to your Pancake Day treats!

3. Healthy Socca Pancakes
For me, pancakes are a delicious treat whether you're serving them for tea or for dessert. Socca pancakes are a tasty savoury vegan option this Pancake Day, and they're even gluten-free too!
Socca is a French, traditional crispy chickpea pancake, packed full of healthy vitamins, nutrients and protein. You could top this pancake with avocado, peppers, hummus or mushrooms.

4. Vegan Crepes
Although fluffy American-style pancakes are absolutely delicious, you can't beat a few crepes too!
This Pancake Day, try out an easy vegan crepe recipe for sweet or savoury crepes.
I love crepes, as they create the perfect base for a variety of toppings- from fruit and chocolate sauce to lemon and sugar, you can really go crazy with the flavours!
This recipe only needs flour, an egg replacement, coconut milk, oil and syrup- making it a super simple, fun recipe to make by yourself or with kids.
