How To Make Extra Fluffy Pecan Pancakes
The secret to the extra fluffy pancakes is the simple ingredients in the recipe and the mixture of baking powder with baking soda. Additionally, be sure to keep from overtaxing the pancake batter in order to ensure that the pancakes are fluffy! Here are the steps for making fluffy pecan pancakes:
- Combine oat milk and vinegar.
- Spray oil and heat up your pan.
- Mix dry ingredients.
- Pour liquid ingredients into dry ingredients and stir just until everything is well mixed.
- Pour batter into pan and sprinkle chopped pecans on top.
- Cook the pancakes and DONE!
Tips For Making Pecan Pancakes
- Spray a skillet with coconut oil so there isn’t too much oil in the pan. If you don’t have coconut oil you can try any other mild flavored oil!
- As well as pecans this recipe also works with hazelnuts, walnuts, cashews or even chestnuts.
- We used oat milk in this recipe, but feel free to use any plant-based milk or regular milk instead.
- You can make these pecan pancakes in advance and store in an airtight container for up to a week in the fridge or up to a month in the freezer!
