I love tinkering with pancake (and waffle) recipes – and that’s because Sunday morning breakfast is hands down my favorite meal of the week. Over the past year or so of blogging I’ve made the following pancakes:
Whole Wheat Chocolate Chip
Pumpkin-Carrot Cake Ginger
Whole Grain with Dried Blueberries, Ginger & Sunflower Seeds
Whole Wheat Nectarine with Easy Coconut Maple Syrup
Banana Bread with Cacao and Pecan & Walnut Butter
Mocha Spice with Simple Syrup
but I’ve created my favorite right here. These are absolutely delicious with nothing on them – and for someone who loves to load her ‘cakes with nut butter, slices of banana and hemp seeds – that’s saying a lot.Print
Oil-free, Sugar-free Mango Lime Pancakes with Ginger & Coconut
- Prep Time: 15
- Total Time: 15 minutes
- Yield: 16 1x
Nothing makes me happier than a stack of warm pancakes. But these Mango Lime Pancakes take breakfast to another level.
- 1 1/2 cups whole wheat pastry flour
- 1/4 cup macadamia nuts
- 1/4 cup coconut flour
- 1/4 cup unsweetened flaked coconut
- 2 Tbsp. wheat germ
- 1 tsp. baking powder
- 2 tsp. baking soda
- 1/4 tsp. cardamom
- 1/4 tsp. cinnamon
- 2+ cups “buttermilk” (nut milk + 1 tbsp. apple cider vinegar)
- juice of 1 lime
- zest of 1 lime
- 1/4 tsp. pure lime extract (optional)
- 1 Tbsp. fresh ginger, grated
- 1 tbsp. crystallized ginger (omit to make recipe completely sugar-free), chopped
- 2 mangoes, divided
- Pop your breakfast plates in the oven and crank it to 200-degrees F. Heat a large griddle or skillet.
- In a food processor, grind the macadamia nuts – this “meal” doesn’t have to be fine, just break down the nuts into small pieces. Set aside. Cut and peel the mangoes and chop one of the halves into small dice. Set aside. Place the other halves into the food processor along with the lime juice and process until very smooth. Set aside.
- In a large bowl, combine the flour, coconut flour, coconut flakes, wheat germ, baking powder, baking soda, and spices. Stir in the macadamia nut meal.
- In a small bowl, whisk together the buttermilk, lime zest, and lime extract and then stir in the mango/lime mixture. Whisk this into the dry ingredients, breaking down any big clumps and then stir in the diced mango, the fresh ginger, and the crystallized ginger, if using. Let the batter sit for 10-15 minutes.
- When the griddle is nice and hot, spoon batter onto it – spraying the surface with oil, if desired. Flip the pancakes when the tops lose their shine and some bubbles pop to the surface. Cook for several minutes and then place the ‘cakes in the oven to keep warm.
- Serve with your favorite syrup.

Oh YES – what a flavour combo!!!!
I seem to gravitate towards these flavors – they all just work so well together.
Why is cafes never pancakes that sound this good? 😉
It’s pretty rare, that’s for sure. There was a breakfast place in Santa Monica when I lived there years ago (and pre-vegan) that made wonderful and unusual pancakes. Otherwise, one is usually stuck with Bisquick-type stuff that give breakfast a bad name.

oh my goodness. these sound amazinggg
It is a lot of yummy ingredients!! They are definitely creative!
Sometimes I have to just stop myself from adding stuff 😉 – but in this case – it all came together really well.
I really want to come to your house for Sunday breakfast. Every time you post a pancake recipe I get a yearning for them, I don’t know how you make them look so good every time. You are a pancake wizard.
You and your lovely assistants are welcome any time! I’ll make the pancakes for breakfast and you make the scones for afternoon tea!
I agree with Sarah! In fact, why would you go out to a cafe and have pancakes when you could use Annies amazingly delicious recipe and stay at home in your jammies and fluffy slippers with messy hair and eat better? 😉
Yes, ma’am! And I know what’s in MY pancakes – who knows what’s in theirs!
Who would want to know Annie! Scary glow in the dark stuff my guess 😉 (the same chemicals that make sparkly vampires 😉 ). Yours look like they glow with health, not strange chemicals 😉
I’m certain you are the queen of vegan pancakes and waffles!
I would be honored to accept that title ;-).
I concur, besides posting now 8 incredible pancake recipes, you’ve also got 10 waffle recipes on the site, including the infamous Kelvis. Girl, can I come to your house for breakfast? Can we just have a pancake and waffle buffet?
Awww, you counted :-)! TEN waffle recipes?! I’m a sicko. So, yes, a pancake/waffle buffet with you sounds heavenly!
far from sicko, it’s called genius. xx
Can we agree on obsessed?
Mmmmmm grown up pancakes. Yum!
I won’t mention the peanut butter & jelly we had for lunch…
PB & J rocks at any age. 🙂
Indeed – these sound very grown up – and spectacular as well. Obsession can be a wonderful thing when it leads to culinary adventures like this!
These pancakes and their flavour… Yum!
Choc Chip Uru
Well, that covers four and a half months of Sundays . . . You still need to invent five and a half month’s worth more; then you will have a fabulous book (A Month of Sundays??) 🙂
I love waffles best, but I do make pancakes. I might just add a bit of kefir and oil to this and dig out the old waffle iron . . . thanks again, Anne!
Haha! I’d better step up my game! I prefer waffles as well – that nice, crispy exterior – but when I made these as waffles, they stuck horribly to the iron despite spritzing it with oil.
What a crazy unique flavor combo!! It sounds delicious! I wanted to make pancakes this morning to go with some coconut whipped cream I made last night, but ended up eating too many homemade granola bars and felt too sick! HA!
Now that’s a great combo, though – coconut whipped cream and pancakes!
Love the flavour combo here Annie! Certainly a wonderful treat for a Sunday 🙂
You do like your pancakes girl – I counted 8 pancake recipes! They all look good, but I’m going to go check out your Whole Wheat Chocolate Chip ones now!! Celeste:)
Haha! I’m a junkie!
I can’t even put to words how fantastic this flavor combination must be. Absolute perfection. I usually don’t put syrup on my pancakes either, too sweet for me, so these were made for me. Can they make a great waffle or is the batter too thin?
I tried making them into waffles, Angela, and they stuck something fierce. I spritzed the iron, but to no avail. My guess is the combination of the mango (sugar sticking) and no-oil is the reason this happened. I haven’t tried using just a little coconut oil in the batter, but that might do the trick, and of course, would taste fantastic!
holy yum! can you open a breakfast place in Seattle please?
That sounds fun :-)! I’d invite all my blogging buddies to guest cook!
You are a true pancake master Annie 🙂 The combination of flavors in these – Im in love!
i love this flavor combination… its like a zesty fruity cupcake as a pancake!
Hmmm, those flavors would make an awesome cupcake!
I also agree hre & think you have made another winner’s recipe! I must make thse beauties tomorrow! They look so appetizing too! For the moment, my favourite pancake recipe of yours is thge WW nectarine with easy maple coconut syrup!! 🙂 Yummmm!
You are certainly the pancake vegan queen!
Thanks, Sophie! Those nectarine ones are pretty darn good – haven’t made them in a while.
It is a must! nectarines are in season right now!
Oh you and those pancakes! They always look so delicious! I love seeing how creative you are with these breakfast foods, Annie!
Mango and Lime just sounds like such a divine combination! xo
This is an incredible recipe. One thing to love about being Vegan, learning about all the foods and combinations you had no idea existed. Thank you for combining three of my four favorite things!!
Some of my favorite flavors, too! Hey – how goes your vegan adventure??
It is continuing, so much has happened in such a short time. I got over the difficult part and now I am grooving and discovering. I am going to post more on this process and all the things I am learning. And I just met another Vegan at work. So I am connecting and finding support on and offline 🙂
Grooving is good!
What a great idea to use tropical flavors in pancakes! It looks and sounds like the perfect summer pancake.
It’s like a tropical vacation in pancake form! I love it!
That is one yummy tropical pancakes!
No lie, these were SO good ;-)!
