Fluffy Gluten Free Vegan Pancakes

It took me FOREVER to find a gluten free, vegan pancake I like.  I originally combined the best out of 3 good recipes and I loved the flavor, but I just couldn’t seem to get the right amount of fluff.  Finally, after my middle son urged me to try it, I added yeast.  Yeah!  Now I have fluffy pancakes with a flavor I love :)

My eldest son loves these with cinnamon and blueberries (or huckleberries) added to the mix.  I like them like that too, but I also like them covered with peanut butter and maple syrup (both “plain” and with cinnamon).  Maybe I just love peanut butter :)

You can make these without the yeast, however, they are much denser and can be a bit gummy in the center.  This is how most of the gluten free vegan pancake recipes I tried came out originally.  So, if you are avoiding yeast and don’t mind the texture, the flavor of these are awesome, even as a denser pancake.
