Vegan Maple Bacon Pancakes

Vegan Maple Bacon Pancakes.

These delicious vegan pancakes were created in response to the maple-bacon craze that has swept over the nation's food scene in the last few years, and after you make these, you'll understand why it did! For non-vegans and non-vegetarians, you can substitute real bacon, but the vegan bacon has been such a hit with even my meat-eating friends, that I'm not sure I'd make them any other way!

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Cook Time: 10 minutes

Total Time: 15 minutes

Yield: 4 servings


  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 t. baking powder
  • 1/8 t. salt
  • 1 cup and 1 T. vanilla soy milk or almond milk
  • 3 T. dairy-free sour cream, such as Tofutti
  • 1 T. maple syrup
  • 1 t. maple extract
  • 1 cup coarsely chopped vegan bacon
  • Maple syrup, for serving


1. In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, and salt, mixing until well-mixed. Add the dairy-free soy milk, dairy-free sour cream, maple syrup, and maple extract, mixing until just combined (mixture will still be a little lumpy). Fold in the chopped vegan bacon, mixing until evenly distributed.

2.Lightly grease a large skillet or griddle with dairy-free soy margarine, and place on the stove over medium heat. Pour the batter on to the griddle or skillet, 1/4-1/3 cup of batter for each pancake. Cook each pancake on the first side until bubbles appear on the surface, then flip with a spatula and cook until both sides are golden brown. Continue until all of the batter is used. Serve pancakes immediately with maple syrup.

Not completely vegan, Member melissaalexander1975

I am making these as I type primarily because I didn't have any eggs in the house. I didn't go completely vegan also because I didn't have any vegan sour cream. These are the substitutions I made: 1 cup of whole wheat graham flour, 3 T of 0% fat Greek yogurt ( I prefer Fage), and 1 t of almond extract (didn't have any maple on hand.) I also didn't add any vegan bacon since that kind of scared me to think about it. Overall, they were ok. I sprinkled cinnamon on top after trying them and will add it to the batter next time. There's not a strong maple taste which disappointed me, so I'll add a bit more extract since the syrup is so expensive. The almond extract does compliment the flavors nicely, though. I will make these again with some minor adjustments.
