Rye flour pancake recipe

Rye flour pancakes.pngThis vegan rye flour pancake recipe is exceptionally simple to make and results in pancakes that people would easily not realise they’re dairy-free. Rye is one of the most nutritious types of flour as the germ and bran are not separated during processing. It’s a great source of fiber and magnesium, the latter of which is required to breakdown glucose.

These are a great breakfast option and can be served with fruit or you could even bake fruit in to them – blueberries would be totally lush. Add such fruit when the mixture is being folded. I made a mixture of poached pears and rhubarb by merely boiling the chopped veg in a little water and sugar until the liquid was practically dissolved, and added a bit of ginger and cinnamon for flavour then topped them with pistachios.

If you wanted to bulk them up protein wise add a headed tablespoon of your choice of protein powder. Hemp probably has the least flavour.

You can use any type of sugar – I used brown cane sugar – or alternatively syrup like agave or date. Olive or coconut oil can be used and surprisingly the olive oil doesn’t transfer any of the taste to the final pancakes.

Rye flour pancake recipe

  • Servings: 6-8
  • Print


  • 1 cup rye flour
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 cup dairy-free milk
  • 2 tbsp sugar or syrup
  • 2 tbsp olive or coconut oil
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • Oil or dairy-free spread for cooking


In a large mixing bowl combine the flour, baking powder and salt. In another mix the rest of the ingredients (except the oil/spread for cooking).

Slowly pour the wet mixture into the flour, mixing as you go. Fold the mixture gently. Leave for five minutes.

Head the oil/spread in a frying pan, unless you have non-stick, and on a medium heat drop small pancakes in to the pan using a tablespoon or small cup.

They will start to bubble which is when you should turn them over (1-2 minutes). They should be golden on either side when cooked. If they are quite thick press them down with a spatula or slice to ensure they cook throughout.

Repeat and serve with your toppings of choice!
