Vegan Pancakes

I am a huge breakfast person. I love pretty much every possible breakfast food, and will eat breakfast foods at any time. Of course, my favorite is definitely oatmeal (I actually brought some overnight oats for lunch yesterday), but pancakes take a close second.

Well, technically pancakes are tied for second with eggs and bacon. The competition is rather fierce.

Regardless, I have been on a serious pancake kick this week. In five days, I have made pancakes four times. With all of this experience, I have crafted my favorite vegan pancake recipe. They are vegan mostly because I have run out of eggs and am procrastinating grocery shopping (thus why I made oatmeal for lunch).

I decided to use all whole wheat flour for this recipe (instead of half and half with white flour), and the pancakes are still light and fluffy! But if you are not a fan of heartier pancakes, I would use a blend of white and wheat flours. I am weird and top my pancakes with heaps of applesauce and greek yogurt, drizzled with maple syrup; which should explain the pictures.
