How to make Chocolate Raspberry Pancakes
You will need:
- a very ripe banana
- plant-based milk
- maple syrup
- baking powder
- raspberries (fresh or frozen; I used frozen because that’s what I had at home)
- chocolate chunks/chips
- baking spray or oil
The basic steps
Making these Chocolate Raspberry Pancakes is really easy.
Here are the basic steps:
Step 1: Mash a ripe banana. Add plant-based milk, and maple syrup. Whisk.
Step 2: Add flour and baking powder. Whisk.
Step 3: Add frozen raspberries and chocolate chunks, fold them in.
Step 4: Brush/spray a pan with oil. Use an ice cream scoop to add the pancake batter to the pan (over low to medium heat). Do you see the bubbles in the middle and the corners that have set? It’s time to flip! Let the pancake cook on the other side until golden. Repeat until you’ve used up the pancake batter.
Bonus points for drizzling maple syrup on top and adding more raspberries and chocolate chunks.
What can I do if my pancakes are raw inside?
If your pancakes are golden brown on the outside but not cooked all the way through, reduce the heat! That way they have more time to cook properly.
What can I do if my pancakes aren’t fluffy?
Add more baking powder! This will make them fluffier. Mashed bananas + baking powder = are a good recipe for fluffiness! :)
My pancake batter is spreading too much/not enough?!
No worries, you can easily adjust the batter! If the batter is spreading too much in the pan, whisk more flour into the batter. If your pancake batter isn’t spreading enough, add a bit more plant-based milk!
Are vegan pancakes healthy?
These pancakes are made completely without white sugar. They are sweetened only with bananas and maple syrup. So I consider these pancakes to be a much healthier alternative to traditional pancakes. Also, they don’t contain any animal products! And there’s only minimal oil. If you want to make these pancakes even healthier, you can use a mix of spelt and wheat flour or use whole wheat flour.
How to make pancakes without eggs and dairy?
Pancakes without eggs and dairy? It’s totally possible! You don’t even need any weird egg replacement powders. For these pancakes, I’ve used mashed bananas and a bit more baking powder than usual. This results in the fluffiest pancakes ever! And they hold together perfectly. No need for eggs at all! I promise. As for the dairy, I’ve simply used plant-based milk (in this case rice milk but you can use any you want!).

Let it cook on the other side until done. Repeat for all the pancakes. You should be able to get 8 pancakes out of the batter.
