Dairy Free Sprinkle Pancakes


Are you looking for a dairy free pancake that is fun and delicious? Try these dairy free sprinkle pancakes! Did you run out of sprinkles? Add some mini chips or berries instead! If you want to increase the fiber, substitute the white flour with whole wheat flour and substitute the white sugar with light brown sugar and add some cinnamon. Instead of the sprinkles, add raisins or cinnamon chips!

These pancakes are so versatile and easy to modify that it’s a great recipe to keep on hand. The unsweetened vanilla almond milk adds flavor and moisture to the pancakes without all of the added sugar. Kids will eat these up as well because they are fun and taste good. This batter is for a family of four so if there are any leftovers, they store perfect in the fridge for the next day. I have never frozen these pancakes because they get eaten up right away!

According to Allison Topilow, MS, RD, CDN, Nutrition Consultant, these delicious pancakes are relatively low in sugar and saturated fat. I recommend using a calcium fortified almond milk to help meet your calcium needs. Enjoy them with a side of low-fat Greek yogurt for additional protein. You might also want to try topping them with fresh berries for a fiber boost!
