How To Make Vegan Pancakes With Watermelon Jam
Making homemade vegan pancakes is easier than you may think! Whisk together the almond milk with the apple cider vinegar in a pourable mixing bowl, then set it aside for about 5 minutes to let it turn into an almond "buttermilk."
In a mixing bowl, combine the flour and baking powder, add the almond "buttermilk" and vanilla and whisk together until a smooth batter is formed.
Pour pancake batter into the desired sizes onto a heated non-stick skillet and cook the pancakes until bubbles start to appear on the surface. Once bubbles appear, flip the pancake and cook for about another minute. Top each pancake stack with our watermelon jam, serve, and enjoy!

Pancakes With Watermelon Jam FAQs
Do I need to use a non-stick skillet to make these pancakes?
No, you don't need to use a non-stick skillet, but I find that it helps the pancakes cook more evenly and prevents them from sticking.
Can I use a jam other than watermelon?
Of course! These pancakes will go with just about any type of jam.
Will a different type of flour work in this pancake recipe?
Yes, you can use whole wheat or gluten-free flour instead of all-purpose flour.
Do I have to use agave syrup?
No, you don't need to use agave syrup. You could also use maple syrup or date syrup in place of the agave syrup.
My pancake batter is too thick. What did I do wrong?
If your pancake batter is too thick, it's likely because you added too much flour. Try adding a little bit of non-dairy milk to the batter and whisking until the desired consistency is reached.
