Vegan Strawberry Pancakes

If you are looking for a super simple vegan pancake recipe for a weekend brunch, this is it. I mean, who doesn’t love pancakes?! And who doesn’t love strawberries? So why not combine those two?!

I’m sure you will love these, because: 

  • These pancakes are quick to make – 30 minutes max from start to finish.
  • You can make the pancake batter in 1 bowl (minimal clean-up!).
  • They are made with basic ingredients (flour, baking powder, maple syrup, oil, plant-based milk, banana, strawberries – most of them are household staples anyway, right?!). 
  • They are the fluffiest pancakes ever. Trust me on this one.
  • The recipe is highly versatile. Mix it up by subbing different fruits (raspberries, blackberries, blueberries, …), adding chocolate chips, coconut flakes, etc.

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!

Pancake FAQ

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!).

Ingredients
 
 

Ingredients for the pancakes

  • 1 very ripe banana
  • 3/4 cup unsweetened plant-based milk e.g. rice milk
  • 1 teaspoon maple syrup
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 cup fresh strawberries chopped
  • baking spray or oil for the pan
  • soy yogurt to add on top (optional)

Instructions
 

  • In a bowl, mash the peeled banana, add the plant-based milk and maple syrup. Give it a quick whisk.
  • Then add the flour and baking powder. Whisk until incorporated. Fold in the chopped strawberries.
  • Spray a flat pan or griddle with oil and heat it up to medium heat. Add a small ladle 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 8 pancakes out of the batter.
  • Stack the pancakes, add soy yogurt and drizzle with maple syrup.

Notes

*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.
Tips for making the perfect vegan pancakes: 
  • Flip the pancakes when you see small bubbles in the center.
  • If your pancakes are golden brown on the outside but not cooked all the way through, reduce the heat!
  • Not fluffy enough? Add more baking powder.
  • If your pancakes stick to the pan, make sure you use a non-stick pan or griddle and to spray the pan with oil before adding the batter.

These look amazing! May I ask what kind of baking powder you use? I assume yours is lower in sodium than mine. I'm on a low sodium diet and my current one has 50 mg sodium per 1/8 teaspoon, which would make these pancakes a no go for me. Thanks. :)
