No eggs – no dairy – These easy vegan pancakes could be your future Sunday breakfast! They are perfectly fluffy, quick to make and look amazing – no one would think they are vegan, promise! Top them with your favorite fruits, nut butter or simple with vegan butter and maple syrup.
Pancakes without eggs and dairy? It’s totally possible! And not only that, they are AMAZING. These vegan pancakes are the fluffiest pancakes I’ve ever had!
Ever since I’ve cracked the code for amazing vegan pancakes, they are a must-make on weekends (and to be honest, I eat them on weekdays too).
For these Vegan Banana Pancakes, I’ve used mashed bananas and a bit more baking powder than usual. This results in super fluffy pancakes! 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!).
The ingredients for Vegan Pancakes
For these easy vegan pancakes you’ll need only 6 ingredients:
- a very ripe banana
- plant-based milk
- maple syrup
- baking powder
I’ve topped the pancakes with vegan butter and drizzled maple syrup on top. It’s such a classic combo but so good! Of course, you can add your various pancake toppings: nut butter, chocolate sauce, raspberries, blueberries, strawberries, banana slices, chocolate chips, whatever you feel like!
How to make vegan Banana Pancakes
Making pancakes without eggs and dairy is super easy!
Here are the basic steps:
Step 1: Mash a ripe banana.
Step 2: Add plant-based milk, maple syrup, and oil. Whisk.
Step 3: Add flour and baking powder. Whisk.
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).
Tip: Do you see the bubbles in the middle and the corners that have set? It’s time to…
Step 5: Flip! Let the pancake cook on the other side until golden. Repeat until you’ve used up the pancake batter.
Step 6: Stack the pancakes, add toppings and dig in!
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!
Help! My pancakes are sticking to the pan!
Make sure you use a non-stick pan or griddle and to spray the pan with oil before adding the batter.
Can I make these pancakes without oil?
Yes, the pancakes use very little oil to begin with, so you can easily omit it but they will look different on the outside because I’ve been spraying/brushing the pan with oil.
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.
