Easy Vegan Pancakes

Any pancakes cravings lately? Got the perfect recipe for you!

I make this recipe way too often, sometimes adding cocoa powder, chocolate chips, a diced apple or a handful of frozen blueberries to my batter. And every time, it turns perfect! It’s so easy you can’t really go wrong with it! All you need, in addition to the essential ingredients such as flour, vegetable milk and baking powder, in particular, is a very ripe banana! And you’re in business for your morning pancakes!

Ingredients

  • 1 very ripe banana, mashed (should give about 1/2 cup)

  • 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil

  • 1 cup of non-dairy milk

  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract (or 1/4 teaspoon ground vanilla)

  • 1 1/4 cup all-purpose flour *

  • 2 tablespoons cane sugar

  • 1 tablespoon of baking powder

  • pinch of salt

* You can always make a mix of different flours (all-purpose and whole wheat, or buckwheat, rye, etc. You can also substitute it with gluten-free flour, but I have not tried it myself.

Optional additions: 2 tablespoons cocoa powder (to be added to the dry ingredients), chocolate chips, diced apple, frozen blueberries (to be added to the pancake batter).

Steps

  1. Mix seperately in two bowls the wet ingredients (banana puree, non-dairy milk, vegetable oil, vanilla extract) and the dry ones (flour, baking powder, cane sugar and salt).

  2. Pour and stir the wet mixture into the dry ingredients. Mix well.

  3. If desired, add here chocolate chips, frozen blueberries or a diced apple to the batter.

  4. Cook your pancakes in a nonstick pan (you can lightly oil it if necessary), using 1/4 to 1/3 cup of batter per pancake.

  5. Enjoy, with LOT of maple syrup and your favorite fruits!
