Vegan Pancake Sundae

Okay… I know what you’re thinking… “Bianca, you’re insane. This is way too decadent. No one can/should eat this“. I hear ya. BUT I just ate this and I have to say, you’re wrong. Everyone should eat it because it’s freaking delicious.

You may know already that I love a good stack of fluffy pancakes but when you add nice cream, chocolate sauce, and cherries. This is winning. Winning at breakfast. Winning at life. Do you want to be a winner? You know what you have to do!

Vegan Pancake Sundae

So let’s break down the components for this amazing stack of deliciousness:

The Vegan Pancakes

You’ll only need 6 basic ingredients for the fluffiest pancakes ever:

  • a ripe banana
  • plant-based milk
  • maple syrup
  • canola oil
  • flour
  • baking powder

You probably have all the ingredients at home already!

The Sundae Topping

I’ve topped the pancakes with

  • nice cream (the simplest & healthiest ice cream made from only 1 ingredient: bananas. If you’re hearing about this the first time, check out my nice cream post for more detailed instructions)

  • chocolate sauce (baking chocolate or chocolate chips and coconut oil is all you need!)
  • cherries for that authentic sundae look :)

Ingredients for the pancakes

  • 1 very ripe banana
  • 3/4 cup unsweetened plant-based milk e.g. rice milk
  • 1 teaspoon maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon canola oil + more for spraying the pan
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder

Ingredients for the toppings

  • 1 banana (peeled, in chunks, frozen overnight)
  • 1/4 cup baking chocolate or chocolate chips (dairy-free obviously)
  • 1 teaspoon coconut oil
  • 2 cherries


  • For the pancakes: In a bowl, mash the peeled banana and add the plant-based milk, maple syrup, and canola oil. Give it a quick whisk. Add the flour and baking powder. Whisk until incorporated. Let the batter sit for a few minutes.
  • For the nice cream: Place the frozen banana chunks in a food processor and pulse until it's perfectly creamy. You might have to scrape down the sides a few times. Then transfer the ice cream into a container and freeze until the pancakes are ready.
  • For the chocolate sauce: In a double boiler (bain-marie), melt the baking chocolate (or chocolate chips) and coconut oil.
  • Back to the pancakes: Spray a flat pan or griddle with oil and heat it up to medium to low heat. Add an ice cream scoop of pancake batter*. Let it cook until the middle becomes bubbly and the corners set, then flip with a spatula. Let it cook on the other side until done. Repeat for all the pancakes. You should be able to get 6 pancakes out of the batter.
  • Stack the pancakes, add a scoop of the nice cream, drizzle with chocolate sauce and add the cherry on top. Enjoy!


*If the batter spreads too much in the pan, whisk a bit more flour into the batter. If it doesn't spread enough, add a bit more plant-based milk.
