If you've been following me for a while, you'll know that I follow a vegan bodybuilding diet. As part of the change to this diet, I've had to rethink my approach to nutrition and be conscious of avoiding common animal products used in food such as milk, dairy, eggs, butter, gelatine and of course meat. 

But as a result of this change, I've been able to discover some great vegan recipes that are both delicious bodybuilder-friendly. This is one of them -- easy vegan pancakes!

There's a stigma that says vegan means tasteless, but that just isn't the case! 

These pancakes are great for refuel meals to restore glycogen for my guys getting ripped on the Shredded program, which is the world's best program for guys to build muscle and get six pack abs.

Easy Vegan Pancakes

So here's the recipe for some yummy vegan pancakes, that can be made super quick, perfect for a quick healthy breakfast.


  • 1 cup of whole-grain flower
  • 1 tablespoon of organic sugar
  • 2 tablespoons of baking powder
  • 1⁄8 teaspoons of salt
  • 1 cup of soymilk
  • 2 tablespoons of vegetable oil


  1. Combine flour, sugar and baking powder together in a bowl.
  2. Add the soy milk and vegetable oil to your mixture. Mix until smooth.
  3. Heat a pan on the stove.
  4. Spoon one pancake’s worth of the mixture into the pan.
  5. When you see bubbles in the middle of the pancake, flip it carefully.
  6. Repeat until the batter is gone.

If you find it easier to watch, here's a video on how to make this healthy vegan pancake recipe:

Optional Pancake Toppings


Fruits are high in fibre and great for glycogen refuel, so don’t be afraid to add some to your healthy vegan pancake. Here are some of the best fruits I use to promote muscle growth and strengthen your endurance.

Peaches and Nectarines

Peaches and nectarines are some of the healthiest fruits for your nerves and muscles. They’re rich in antioxidants, which can boost your immune system and insoluble fiber that helps improve digestion.


Add some tangy tropical flavor to your vegan pancakes. Pineapples are jam-packed with bromelain, an anti-inflammatory enzyme that can promote muscle growth and even reduce the risk of heart attacks and strokes.


Pomegranate is a rich source of vitamin C, antioxidants, fiber and anti-inflammatory properties. This is a must-have fruit for body-builders. Its juice contains two to three times the antioxidant capacity of red wine or green tea. Pomegranate is also a great source of potassium, which sustains energy and controls high blood pressure.

Kiwi Fruit

Kiwi is loaded with vitamins C and E. These strong antioxidants prevent muscle soreness, protect against cancer and even promote eye health. Kiwis are also great for weight loss since they’re low in calories and high in fiber.


A banana is the perfect fruit to add potent source of potassium and fiber to promote long-lasting energy and alertness during your work-out.


This beloved pancake topping is packed with antioxidants and vitamin C to boost your immune system. Stay healthy and work-out better and longer.
