Easy Breakfast with Bisquick Pancakes
- 3 Comments
Ever wish you had a super easy dairy free, egg free breakfast option? Bisquick pancakes are where it’s at. Knowing how to make Bisquick pancakes without eggs or milk makes it not only easy for you, but easy for others to prepare for you or your food allergic-loved one as well. With only Bisquick, applesauce and water, you can whip up some delicious pancakes in no time.
Egg free breakfast for a crowd
When we go to a family reunion or any event where breakfast with a large group of people is inevitable, I get nervous. Breakfast equals milk and eggs, and when you are allergic to milk and eggs, breakfast can be a nightmare. We have learned over the years that it is better to ask ahead of time if those who are organizing and participating in a gathering could choose a non-egg or non-dairy breakfast to be safe. In some cases, like in very large groups, this isn’t really possible so we either opt not to go, or figure out if there is a way we can bring separate food and still feel safe and comfortable. Many groups are willing to accommodate, but don’t know what other options there are for breakfast. I mean, let’s be real, it is even a stretch for the dairy and egg free family to figure out what to eat for breakfast sometimes, right? When we request no eggs at breakfast, I will either offer to send homemade muffins, or suggest that they make Bisquick Pancakes without eggs. The pancakes are so easy and everyone likes them. They can be made with just a few ingredients and topped with Smart Balance butter, and syrup or jam. I hope this will make a group gathering or just a quick home breakfast a little easier for you! Enjoy!

Bisquick Applesauce Pancakes
Making Bisquick Pancakes without eggs or milk is easy and you probably won't tell the difference. This is great for big gatherings or camp-outs, and especially easy for those who aren't used to cooking with unfamiliar recipes or ingredients. Applesauce is inexpensive and easy to find. Water or any milk substitute like coconut, rice or soy milk will work. We use it at family reunions and scout camp-outs. Our scout leaders appreciate having easy and delicious options for everyone that also accommodate a food-allergy need. I would not recommend mixing up more than two batches at a time.
- 2 cups Bisquick
- 1 cup water (or milk substitute like coconut, rice or soy milk)
- 1/4 cup applesauce
Stir all ingredients until blended.
Pour about 1/4 cup of batter onto a pan or heated griddle, on medium heat (about 375 degrees).
Cook until bubbles break on surface. Turn and cook until golden.
Alternate Substitutions for Egg Free Bisquick Pancakes
If you want to simplify it even further, you can make Bisquick pancakes with just water or your favorite milk alternative. They turn out a little flatter when using only water in the mix, but they still come out well and taste good.
If you are looking for other options or want to get creative with your Bisquick Pancakes, you can try any of these in place of an egg in the Bisquick mix:
1/4 cup vanilla yogurt (soy, coconut or dairy yogurt-if milk is not a problem)
1/4 cup pumpkin
1/2 banana, mashed
1 tbsp flaxseed + 3 tbsp water
