Ingredients for the pancakes

  • 1 very ripe banana
  • 3/4 cup unsweetened plant-based milk e.g. almond milk
  • 1 teaspoon maple syrup
  • 2 teaspoons melted coconut oil + more for spraying the pan
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 3 tablespoons cocoa powder (dutch-processed)
  • 2 tablespoons dark chocolate chips (dairy-free!)

Ingredients for the toppings


  • In a bowl, mash the peeled banana and add the almond milk, maple syrup, and coconut oil. Give it a quick whisk.
  • To the wet ingredients, add the flour, cocoa powder, and baking powder. Whisk until incorporated. Fold in the chocolate chips.
  • Spray a flat pan or griddle with oil and heat it up to medium to low 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 6 pancakes out of the batter.
  • For the chocolate sauce, whisk the melted coconut oil, maple syrup and cocoa powder.
  • Stack the pancakes, add chocolate sauce on top, top with banana slices and a couple more chocolate chips. 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.
Tips for making the perfect vegan pancakes: 
  • Flip the pancakes when you see small bubbles in the center.
  • If your pancakes are not cooked all the way through but the outside is already browning, 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.
