Can’t have eggs or dairy? No problem! Make these amazing Vegan Banana Pancakes. You’ll sub a flax egg for eggs, almond milk for cow’s milk, and soy yogurt for dairy yogurt.
Vegan Pancakes Rule!
Who is ready for the most delicious and easy vegan pancakes on the planet?! We don’t have a ton of experience making pancakes without farm eggs, but let me tell you, the flax eggs are what made these pancakes extra moist and extra perfect.
In addition to flax eggs, these vegan banana pancakes are made with other whole and plant-based ingredients that you probably already have in your kitchen!
- white whole wheat flour
- baking soda
- ground cinnamon
- teaspoon salt
- mashed banana
- vanilla extract
- dairy-free yogurt
- unsweetened almond milk
- coconut oil
Flax Egg Deets
If you’ve never made a flax egg before, it’s super simple. We have a super simple Flax Egg tutorial on FFF, but here is a quick rundown.
All you do is mix together 1 tablespoon of flaxseed meal (AKA ground flaxseed) and 3 tablespoons of warm water. Let it sit for about 15 minutes or until it becomes slimy/gummy.
Flax eggs essentially take the place of a farm egg and help bind everything together just like a normal egg. When I gave Mark a taste test of these pancakes he said, THESE PANCAKES HAVE THE BEST TEXTURE I’VE EVER TASTED. Winning.
Easy Vegan Pancakes Base
This pancake batter is such a great base for endless add-ins and toppings. We made half the batch with wild blueberries and topped them with almond butter, hemp seeds, more yogurt, and maple syrup! SO GOOD. Check out more add-in ideas below.
- peanut butter + chocolate chips
- strawberries + coconut whipped cream
- dairy-free yogurt + slivered almonds
Can you freeze pancakes?
Yes you can freeze pancakes! Let your pancakes cool completely before tightly wrapping them in plastic wrap and then tin foil. They will stay good for up to 3 months in the freezer.
Vegan Banana Pancakes
- First, prepare your flax eggs by mixing together 2 tablespoons of ground flax seeds and 6 tablespoons of warm water. Let sit for 15 minutes.
- Next, mix together dry ingredients in a medium-size bowl and set aside.
- In a large bowl, mash banana until liquidy. Then, once your flax eggs are slimy/gummy, add those to the large bowl and mix. Add in the rest of the wet ingredients other than the coconut oil and mix well.
- Slowly add dry ingredients to wet and mix.
- Finally add in melted coconut oil and mix until smooth. As your batter sits it may thicken, so add extra almond milk as needed.
- Preheat a large frying pan to low/medium heat and spray with coconut oil cooking spray.
- Scoop a heaping 1/3 cup of the batter onto your pan and cook for 3-5 minutes on each side or until golden brown and fully cooked.
Tips & Notes
- *These pancakes cook the best on a lower heat. If your burner is set to medium/high, the middle may not cook all the way through.
- *As your batter sits it may thicken, so add extra almond milk as needed.
