I am a firm believer that a picture can speak a thousand words.
Take these sky high pancakes for example. I don’t need to tell you that these were delicious, moist, decadent, amazing, FILLING, and some of the best pancakes I have ever eaten. The picture does an excellent job describing all of that to you on its own!
I’ve been craving pancakes like crazy the past couple weeks. I haven’t had pancakes in months, and I consider pancakes to be the epitome of a lazy morning breakfast. In a good way. After discovering I had all the ingredients I needed, I finally made myself a tower.
Classic Fluffy Vegan Pancakes
- 1 cup whole wheat flour
- 1 tbsp raw sugar
- 2 tbsp baking powder
- 1 cup vanilla almond milk
- 1 tbsp olive oil
- 1 tbsp apple sauce
- 2.5 tsp vanilla
Directions: Combine your dry ingredients in a large bowl and set aside. In a separate bowl combine your wet ingredients and then add them to the dry ingredients. Stir together until there are no visible clumps. I took cinnamon and completely covered the top of the wet mixture. No measurements, just a LOT of cinnamon! Stir the cinnamon in and cook!
You can choose how big to make these, but once they start to form bubbles flip them over to cook the other side. Serve with bananas and maple syrup, or any other fruit/toppings you would like! All I was missing was some coconut whipped cream!
I am almost ashamed to tell you I ate this entire batch by myself..almost. What can I say I was hungry and these were so good, but you already knew that from the pictures. 😉
I do have a confession though, I like my pancakes a little…mushy. I LOVE pumpkin pancakes because they come out so soft and almost like they are under cooked. I took these pancakes off the griddle just a tad bit early to have some softness on the inside.
That’s the joy of eating the whole batch, you can make them however you want! To really heighten your lazy morning experience, I highly suggest serving these with a cup of coffee.
Q: Pancakes or waffles? WAFFLES for sure, but I don’t have a waffle maker haha. When it comes to waffles I like mine CRISP, no mush with the waffles.

I just had chocolate chip pancakes for BFast! I have pancakes about 3 times a week 🙂 They are so simple to make and oh so filling. I LOVE using pumpkin.. I have a slight obsession. I like pancakes over waffles bc I like the bready texture and I feel like you get more for your caloric buck. And you better believe I had a cup (or 4) of Cafe du Monde with my cakes!
Michelle @ Eat Move Balance
I’m a firm believer that cinnamon should never be measured! These look amazing, but I’m with you that if given the choice, I love waffles!
um WOW. Those look amazing. Pancakes are one of my favorite things to eat, for any meal really. Breakfast for dinner is a pancake-essential meal for me 🙂 I like mine kind of mushy-too, you aren’t alone on that one!
I used to think I liked waffles more but there’s just something so satisfying about a giant stack of pancakes. That’s my ultimate breakfast food but I’m so lazy I pretty much only eat them when we go out to eat. Bagels win every time if it means I have to make myself breakfast
holy sheeeeeeeit lady, I’m dying inside. I thought my avocado-toast and dippy egg breakfast was good, pictures of these just made me rethink my entire life. Probably making pancakes in the near future
I love mushy pancakes, too! I used to request for my mom to half cook mine was I was a little girl. Yum. I really don’t know if I like pancakes or waffles more, but the one thing waffles have over pancakes is the ability to fill the little ditches with all things delicious. They’re like little containers. Lol
di @ life of di.
Tough one but I think waffles. I guess it’s a hard choice though because pancakes with toppings are really great too 🙂 These look great Britt!
YUM! I made banana pancakes the other day too and they were awesome. I was also a big loser and played Jack Johnson – Banana Pancakes while I made them. There is NO shame in eating an entire stack of pancakes… I did too because THATS HOW WE ROLL 😉
Angela @ Health's Angel
I love how delicious these look! Not to mention healthy. I never make pancakes for myself. Not clear on why… If I eat pancakes I like them softer, too!
Amanda @ .running with spoons.
Very impressive pancake stack… and even more so because the pancake in each consecutive layer gets a little smaller, adding nicely to the tower effect. Yes. These are important things to consider 😉
I honestly can’t choose between pancakes or waffles – they’re both amazing. That being said, I hate making pancakes myself because I totally fail on the flipping front. But if we’re tlaking my mom’s buttermilk pancakes with a sprinkle of icing sugar on top? Ugh. Nothing beats those.
¡A Mi Me Gustan tambien! Mejor Con Jugo De Mango.
Pancakes all the way, especially if they have chocolate chips in them. I hate to admit that I actually prefer the little Eggo frozen waffles more than fancy belgium ones. Sad, but true. This post is making my bowl of cereal look extra wimpy right now.
Nicole @ FruitnFitness
I had a two ingredient pancake for breakfast this morning! I then topped it with lots of strawberries, coconut, almond syrup and pear slices. Almond ‘syrup’ is a new favorite of mine! It’s just almond butter and coconut milk stirred together.

I need a waffle maker too!! Buy one for me and Ill buy one for you? 😉
These pancakes sound amazing! I agree that I prefer mine with some mush to them, which is probably why I love adding naners into mine!
WOW this looks incredible!! I definitely like mushy pancakes, too 🙂
Damn! (I don’t know what else to say!)
These look soo good! Especially with the bananas! I like my pancakes a little mushy too. And i def would pick pancackes over waffles. Yum!

It’s speaking alright and you know what the picture said to me? Eat me. Well if its a command… 😉

There’s nothing better than a stack of pancakes 🙂
Pancakes, definitely! Yours look delicious, and now I want to make some. 🙂

If that was the leaning tower of pancakes, I would like to be the lucky sucker that the tower FALLS ON… Then I would eat myself out of that mess – Okay, so if that made no sense to you, I am sorry, but it makes PERFECT SENSE to me. WHEN THE HELLLLLLL ARE YOU & I going to meet up and film a GIGI EATS episode OMG…. More like 3947893748378437 episodes!
LOVE ME SOME MOOOOSHY PANCAKES…. And I cannot even remember the last time I had a waffle……. I did love me some mini eggo waffles. I’d eat like a whole box in a sitting. Awesome. No wonder why I cannot eat crap food anymore.
I am a freaking BOSS when I eat. SO MUCH FOOD. SHOVED IN MY FACE. So delicious. Until I get a stomach ache. LOL!
Now I am just rambling. Story of my life. I have a head ache. I need to close my eyes. I am going to type while I close my eyes… hold on… get ready for it:
Hi Britney, It’s GiGi. I am closing my eyes as I write this. How am I doing? If I am actually doing well then damn, I am only the computer far too much. I need a life. A man would be nice. Mmmmmmm Okay… Time to see how I did.
(OMGGGGGG It’s official. I need a life. LMFAO)
Whoa, you can type with CLOSED EYES! I feel like I should bow down to you. I am going to try now..here’s my turn:
Hi GiGi how are you doing today I hopw this turns out but i think i am a little off.
WAHOO only one mess up! I should make a video clip and send it to you for you to make a mash up until we can be together for real. Yes..this is what I shall do.
GiGi Eats Celebrities
OMG YOU seriously should!!! LOL! We should come up with a concept and then we can just film stuff and I can edit them together! yes, SCORE huge! We should have a VEGAN/NON-VEGAN argument lol!!
BAHA YES! And maybe a running vs elliptical debate TOO!
Hello Pancakes!!! Wow those look absolutely incredible!! I really like waffles too so that’s a toss up for me, but I don’t have a waffle maker either 😦
Why must I choose? Let’s have both! These look amazing & the perfect thing for Sunday morning breakfast.
Sooooo, I’m not usually a pancake fan – BUT these actually sound really good – and the ingredients are SO simple which I love. I don’t blame you for eating the whole batch, no blame at all.
Change of Pace
So good! i LOVE pancakes but am just terrible at making them (I think I’m much too anxious). If I’m free on a weekend morning, I’ve been known to invite myself over to my parent’s house for pancakes! Kelly actually makes them pretty good, too. Maybe I’ll leave this recipe out for him to see!

You’re a woman after my own heart. What would life be without pancakes and waffles?! A sad place, that I can tell you. And I always, always put sliced bananas on top. And peanut butter. And hemp seeds. And I usually eat four pancakes at a sitting.
You know I am enjoying these guys. For me personally, I like waffles only because they take less time to make and I don’t have to physically watch the waffles so they don’t get burned…I can do other things…I know I’m constantly in a rush in the morning to make it work on time.
Mary @ Fit and Fed
Impressive tower of goodness you’ve got going there! And quite healthy as far as pancakes go. On the occasions (not many) that I make pancakes for my family it always feels great to have that giant stack ready for everyone on a Sunday morning.
Holy crrraaaap these look good!!! 😉
I LOVE pancakes and waffles pretty much equally, but like you, I do not have a waffle iron! 😦
I’m not a huge fan of mushy pancakes, but that wouldn’t stop me from devouring this plate. It looks delicious and I love the symmetry on your tower. Very well done.
Luv What You Do
That tower is AMAZING!
Sarah @ Feeeding the Brain and Body
When it comes to cinnamon I never measure…I always just jump ) I kid I kid (kind of). Either way these pancakes look incredible. When you say fluffy, you are not kidding, these sure are fluffy! Love that you aren’t scared to use sugar in your recipe!
Ugh, so not nice to post something like this….Those look amazing! There are only a few things that I really miss since I switched to paleo and pancakes top the list. *sigh*
Khushboo Thadani (@KhushbooThadani)
Mmmmm love me some pancakes and it’s been far too long since I’ve made a stack! I’m normally a waffle person (texture thing) but right now, only pancakes will do!
Jan @ Sprouts n Squats
Yum those look amazing!! I had pancakes for breakfast but now I want more again!
Oh… you ask such deep questions… I think I’m going to have to go with pancakes. But I am weird and don’t like butter and syrup and prefer PB (big surprise lol) and jam. So basically I like sandwiches!?!?
These look yummy as usual. I hope you can come to the wedding and during your visit, perhaps the day before the wedding we can make breakfast together. Not the day of because I’m pretty sure if I ate pancakes I might regurgitate from nervs. And that is nassssty. I’m stickin to smoothies.
Making breakfast with you would be magical. I would have assumed you would be WAY BUSY CRAZY WEDDING lady and have no time for such things, but alas..there is ALWAYS time for breakfast!
Alex @ Brain, Body, Because
These look so fluffy and delicious and HUGE! I love it!
I am definitely on Team Pancake. My mini-OCD goes craaaazy with waffles because the little squares make it impossible for the butter/syrup/other topping to be evenly distributed. Some bites are really buttery and some bites have no butter at all…and that’s my treatise on the waffle 😛
If your mission with this post was to have me lick the screen, then consider it mission accomplished 🙂
They look delicious!
Amazing! Those look delicious!
Those look yummy!! I haven’t been eating bananas because of the pain killers I was on and yea you know… This looks awesome. My kitchen is literally empty right now and I see a HUGE grocery shopping trip in my future today. Pretty jazzed to buy bananas, never thought that day would come.
Life After Swimming
You win every single time. Those look perfect. Pancakes have been all that I’ve wanted lately.
Lucy @ Lucy On The Lookout
Hell yes Britt, these look divine! Especially like the idea of coconut whipped cream on the side – I like a little somethin’ somethin’ to dip the pancakes in 😉 I agree yes to waffles over pancakes, but I’m grateful I don’t own a waffle maker or else I’d turn into some giant waffle monster!
Waffle or pancakes? Hmmmm…. can I pick both?!
This Fit Chick
OMG SO FLUFFY.
that’s my main criteria with pancakes.. fluffy, yet still dense! YUM
Really regretting having eaten breakfast already. That stack is ridiculously awesome. And now I want pancakes so so badly.
um…….i may or may not have first read this post while sprawling in a 15 passenger van after a 3 mile leg during my relay……….it made me cry tears of desire. 🙂
Shut the front door…that pancake tower looks like all kinds of amazing.
I’m pretty impressed with the fact you could stack those all up there.
It’s tough for me to chose a favorite since I mostly pick the pancakes, considering I don’t know where my waffle maker is and that I don’t have many if any vegan waffle recipes. So I guess pancakes win by default.
I have made some delicious vegan waffles! I need to just buy a waffle maker!
Wait a minute… do you mean pancakes are a lazy morning breakfast or that pancakes are what you eat during a lazy morning?
Because GIRL. LOL. I hope it is the latter. My “lazy breakfasts” are eaten like.. standing at the fridge..
PS those look great. SO fluufy!
Ohh lawwdyy YES most definitely the latter!! Pancakes take a good amount of work and patience, so I cannot be FEELING lazy, but it does make the morning feel calm and casual! My lazy girl breakfast would be a peanut butter sandwich…even though it’s sooo damn good.
Yummy yummy Ive got love in my tummy…. Well I will after I make these bad boys. 🙂
Melissa @ Mouthwatering Morsel
omg … that is huge!!! haha but looks delicious. idk if I’d like pumpkin pancakes only because idk if I like pumpkin. sissy bought me pumpkin butter back during christmas and I wasn’t a fan. bahh. maybe I need to eat the pumpkin stuff YOU make 😉
Alex (Veggin' Out in the Kitchen)
I’m so glad that I’m no the only one who prefers slightly underdone pancakes!!! If it’s bready, I prefer it to be a bit (or even a lot) doughy 🙂 Yep, I’m weird. Haha. Oh and between pancakes and waffles? Can’t I please have both? 😉
The Healthy Flavor
Omg girl I’ve been eating pancakes all week!! I just made the yummiest fluffiest cinnamon pancakes this past weekend and posted on Facebook to tease everybody! Lol! I’ll post the recipe soon! I LOVE pancakes..they are a favorite thing for me to eat and just like you…I eat about 4 all at once!! No shame!
uhm. holy cow do those look incredible! i have ridiculous food intolerances that would keep me from eating these but i bet with a few tweaks i could totally replicate this! i love both pancakes and waffles!!
Rach @ This Italian Family
Oooh I’m the same way! I like my pancakes just a little mushy, but my waffles super crisp! I’ve never really thought about that before, but it’s true! 🙂 These look great, friend!
these look uhhhmazing and i must make them asap
waffles! unfortunately, i don’t have the counter space for a waffle maker.
