Making vegan tapioca (cassava) flour pancake is a simple process. It is presented in the most straightforward manner possible. You can make it for your family after you’ve tried it out.

How To Prepare Vegan Tapioca Flour  Pancakes

vegan tapioca flour pancakes


  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 pinch of table salt
  • 1/2(half) cup canned coconut milk
  • 2 tablespoon tapioca (cassava) flour
  • 2 tablespoon ground flax seed
  • 6 tablespoons of water
  • 1 tablespoon of vanilla extract
  • ½(half) tablespoon ground cinnamon


  1. Add the ground flax to the water in the amount specified above and vigorously stir them until the flax is completely moistened. To make sure the mixture is completely saturated with water, leave it out on the counter for 15-20 minutes. You should keep in mind that you will need to stir the mixture a couple of times during the allotted period for it to remain as-is.
  2. At the same time, stir in a half cup of canned coconut milk to the flax and water mixture, as well as 1 tablespoon of vanilla extract. Afterward, add the rest of the dry ingredients and stir everything until the pancake batter is smooth and homogeneous.
  3. Begin by preheating the pan/griddle on medium-high heat for a few minutes. You can use any oil of your choice, but I recommend olive oil because of its heart-healthy properties, as well as the fact that it contains less cholesterol than other oils.
  4. Let’s get to business and dirty our hands.
  5. Take a quarter (one-fourth) of the cake batter and try to transfer it to the baking pan.
  6. Just remember to be careful with the batter because it will be sticky, so flatten the batter on the pan rather than allowing it to spread on its own.
  7. Then turn the pancake and repeat the process 5-6 times, after 3-4 minutes, when the portion is slightly browned. If you find the middle portion still raw, you can put it into the microwave for 10-15 seconds.
  8. Pancakes are ready for serving at this time. Take pleasure in them!

Almond Flavor Vegan Tapioca Flour Pancakes:



  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 pinch of table salt
  • 1/2(half) cup canned coconut milk
  • 2 tablespoon tapioca flour
  • 2 cups fine almond flour
  • 6 tablespoons of water
  • 1 tablespoon of vanilla extract
  • ½(half) tablespoon ground cinnamon
  • 2 tablespoon ground flax seed


NOTE: We are substituting ground flax seeds for the eggs in this recipe.

The seeds should be used in the same proportion as the eggs.

For example, when substituting flax seeds for three eggs, you should use a one-to-three proportion, with one tablespoon representing flax seeds instead of the three eggs.

Instructions To Prepare Vegan Tapioca Flour Pancakes (Almond Flavor):

  1. Using a 6-tablespoon measuring cup, combine 2 teaspoons of flax seeds with 6 tablespoons of water and thoroughly mix them. Set alone for a few minutes, approximately 10-15 minutes, to allow the mixture to settle before stirring it at regular intervals of 20-30 seconds.
  2. Follow the recipe’s directions for adding the flour, one cup at a time. Add 1 tablespoon baking powder, 2 tablespoons tapioca flour, and the almond flour to the flax and water mixture and combine thoroughly. Gather all of the dry ingredients in a large mixing bowl and thoroughly combine them.
  3. The remaining steps are as similar as the first one (basic).

Banana Flavor Vegan Tapioca Flour Pancakes:



  • Bananas, one or one and a half
  • Tapioca flour (half a cup)
  • coconut milk (about a third of a cup)
  • Coconut oil (about 2-3 tablespoons)
  • 1/4 cup bicarbonate of soda
  • table salt (one pinch)
  • 6 tablespoons of water


Instructions To Prepare Vegan Tapioca Flour Pancakes (Banana Flavor):


  1. Assemble all of the necessary ingredients.
  2. In a medium-sized mixing bowl, combine the tapioca starch and water. Add the water in a slow, steady stream, 2 tablespoons at a time, constantly stirring with your fingers. The combination will form clumps; break them apart with your finger to prevent them from sticking together.
  3. 3. Continue to stir the ingredients and gradually add water until the entire mixture is thoroughly combined. Watch out that the batter does not become soggy or dry at any point during the mixing process.
  4. 4. Through a fine sieve, strain the starch into a clean bowl, removing any excess moisture. To aid in the starch passage through the sieve, vigorously stir it with a wooden spoon. After the mixture has been sieved, add salt and stir once more to incorporate it.
  5. Using a fork, mash ripe bananas or plantains until they are smooth. Afterward, incorporate it into the remaining ingredients.
  6. The remaining steps are as similar as the first one (basic).


Would Vegan Tapioca Flour Pancakes Be Fluffy?

It makes no difference whether the pancake is vegan or if an egg is added. After all, it’s going to be fluffy and smooth in the end. However, you will need to allow more time for the cooking process. Because vegan pancakes take longer to cook than traditional pancakes, you’ll need to leave them on the pan for a few minutes more. Don’t rush through the preparation; instead, concentrate on getting the center part of the pancake to cook properly. And do not neglect to use baking soda properly because it is the key ingredient to making it fluffy.

Use whatever you want for your toppings if you want to be a little more imaginative.

You can, however, experiment with different toppings, such as blueberries, strawberries, and banana slices, or even crushed walnuts, to see what you like best.

Additionally, maple sauce or pumpkin puree can be used to create a wonderful variety of flavors in your pancakes.

However, it would be prudent in this case.
