You don't need eggs and dairy for super-fluffy pancakes-the extra baking powder in this recipe helps with that. We love the flavor and tenderness that coconut oil gives these easy-to-make pancakes.
2 cups all-purpose flour
3 Tbsp sugar
1 Tbsp baking powder
1 ½ cups unsweetened plain soy milk
⅓ cup virgin coconut oil, melted
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
4 tsp vegetable oil
Maple syrup, but butter or jam, for serving
1. Preheat the oven to 250ºF. Whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder and 1 teaspoon salt in a medium bowl. Whisk together the soy milk, coconut oil and vanilla in a second medium bowl (don't worry if the coconut oil clumps). Add the soy milk mixture to the flour mixture and gently fold until just combined (it's OK if there are lumps).
2. Heat a nonstick griddle or large nonstick skillet over medium-low heat. Add 1 teaspoon of the vegetable oil. Once the pan is hot, add three 1/4-cup mounds of batter, evenly spaced, and cook until the pancakes begin to bubble and are golden brown, 4 to 5 minutes. Carefully flip the pancakes and cook until the underside is golden brown and the pancakes are cooked through, 3 to 4 minutes (adjust the heat as necessary for consistent browning). Repeat with the remaining vegetable oil and batter. Transfer the cooked pancakes to the oven to keep warm. Serve 2 per person with maple syrup, nut butter, jam or your favorite topping.
Makes about 12 pancakes
