Use white whole wheat flour or regular whole wheat flour. Gluten-free flour works as well.

Vegetable oil can be replaced with olive oil or avocado oil.
Vanilla extract adds a cozy flavor.
Use a little butter or nonstick spray to coat the pan or griddle. This prevents sticking.

Taste & Texture
Almond milk pancakes are fluffy and soft. They taste like classic pancakes.
The texture is similar to traditional pancakes, but they are slightly less dense.
The flavor will largely depend on toppings.
How to Make
First, in a mixing bowl, whisk together the white whole wheat flour, baking powder, and salt until well combined.
In a separate bowl, combine the almond milk, vegetable oil, and vanilla extract. Whisk until well blended.
Gradually pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients, stirring well with a whisk or spoon. Mix until a smooth batter forms.
Let the batter rest for about 5 minutes to allow the baking powder to activate.
Heat a non-stick skillet or griddle over medium heat. Lightly grease the surface with cooking spray or a small amount of butter.
Pour approximately 1/4 cup of the pancake batter onto the hot skillet for each pancake.
Cook the pancakes for about 2 to 3 minutes, or until small bubbles form on the surface. Flip the pancakes and cook for an additional 1 to 2 minutes, or until cooked through and lightly golden.
Remove the pancakes from the skillet and repeat the process with the remaining batter, greasing the skillet as needed.
Finally, serve the almond milk pancakes warm! Add your favorite toppings.
