Eggs, milk, honey - the ingredients and toppings for pancakes don’t exactly cover everyone’s dietary choices, so when a vegan recipe comes along we love to see it.

Whether you’re short on time or craving something tasty for breakfast, Sweet Freedom has you covered with three recipes even non-vegans will approve of.

Quick and easy pancakes

Serves: 4

Ready in: 20 minutes


  • 200g your choice flour*
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 230ml plant based milk or water
  • 2 tbsp Sweet Freedom Fruit Syrup
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil, melted and cooled
  • Extra coconut oil for frying
  • Sweet Freedom Choc Shot for drizzling and berries


  1. Blend all pancake ingredients together and pulse until smooth.
  2. Heat the coconut oil in your frying pan, then drop the batter into the hot pan, spread if needed as the batter is quite thick.
  3. Flip or turn when bubbles appear.
  4. Repeat with all batter and keep pancakes warm in a stack in a low oven.
  5. Serve warm topped with fresh berries and a drizzle of Sweet Freedom Choc Shot liquid chocolate.

*depending on flour you may need to use a more or less liquid, for example, coconut flour absorbs more liquid than say almond flour.
