Vegan Blueberry Muffin Pancakes

The fluffiest, most flavor vegan pancakes I have ever made. The best part? They taste just like a blueberry streusel muffin.

  • 1 batch flax egg (1 Tbsp (7 g) flaxseed meal + 2 ½ Tbsp (37 ml) water as original recipe is written // or chicken egg if not vegan)
  • 1 Tbsp Earth Balance, melted (or other non-dairy butter)
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 1 Tbsp agave nectar
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup whole-wheat pastry flour OR unbleached all-purpose
  • 1/4 cup blueberries (fresh or frozen // slightly thaw frozen berries in the microwave)


  • 2 Tbsp raw sugar
  • 2 1/2 Tbsp unbleached all-purpose flour
  • 1 Tbsp Earth Balance


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (176 C). Prepare streusel by combining sugar and flour in a small mixing bowl and then cutting in Earth Balance until well combined. Spread on a baking sheet and bake for 5-7 minutes or until it turns light brown. Remove from oven and set aside. You will have leftover streusel.

  2. Preheat electric griddle to medium heat (or about 350 degrees F), or a large skillet on the stovetop. You want the surface to be hot but not screaming hot - oil shouldn't smoke when it makes contact with the surface. Catch my drift?

  3. To the same large mixing bowl add flaxseed and water and let set for a minute or two. Then add melted Earth Balance, agave nectar, baking soda, baking powder, salt, almond milk, vanilla extract and whisk until well combined.
  4. Next add flour and stir until just combined. Add blueberries next and lightly fold to incorporate. Let better rest for 5-10 minutes.
  5. Lightly grease your griddle and pour 1/4 cup measurements of the batter onto the griddle. Top with a sprinkle of streusel and flip when bubbles appear in the middle and the edges turn slightly dry. Cook for 1-2 minutes more on the other side and then top with Earth Balance, an additional sprinkle of streusel and a drizzle of maple syrup.
