Fluffy Vegan Banana Pancakes
This is hands down the best vegan banana pancake recipe for breakfast or a treat. It is both egg and dairy free! The pancakes are light, easy and most importantly super tasty! Top with sliced bananas and maple syrup for the ultimate pancake stack.
I have searched high and low for a vegan banana pancake which holds the right amount of texture and the right amount of banana and cinnamon flavour. I wanted something fluffy, tasty and easy to make.
Now, I can say that I have mastered this recipe and my banana pancake game is strong. Yours is about to be too!
What to serve with your vegan pancakes?
One of the pleasures about pancakes, is that you can personalise them to your taste and your cravings. I am normally a “let’s have a bit of everything” type of girl for my pancakes but: for these vegan banana pancakes, I find simple takes the win.
Some of my other favourite options: top with some of your favourite chocolate if you are a chocolate lover or a dollop of your favourite spread. You can use up some fruit or warm up some frozen berries and serve as a berry compote (delicious by the way!!)
Blend or Mash the Banana?
I have tried both ways and there isn’t a huge noticeable difference in texture. Personally, I think the best option is to blend the banana along with the wet ingredients. This ensures that the mixture is completely blended and there are no lumps of banana. But if you prefer that texture, then mashing is a great option!
How to know when your vegan banana pancakes are ready?
With the addition of banana in your pancakes you will have to cook until both sides are browned. We have all been there with the struggle and mess of flipping pancakes but it doesnt need to be that difficult!
You will know when your pancakes are ready when they start to bubble on top, wait until there are lots of bubbles, not just a few. Be patient and you will get fluffy and moist banana pancakes! The sides will begin to brown and it will be easy to flip the pancake.
You may want to repeat the process of flipping and pressing down on the pancake with the spatula to ensure they are fully cooked on the inside.
Top Tip: Do not have the heat too high on the hob, or you will burn your pancake straight away. It is better to have on a lower heat for more control.
