  • 1 very ripe banana
  • 3/4 cup unsweetened plant-based milk e.g. rice milk
  • 1 teaspoon maple syrup + more to drizzle on top
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 cup chocolate chips + more to add on top
  • baking spray or oil for the pan


  • 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 chocolate chips.
  • 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 a couple more chocolate chips on top, and drizzle with maple syrup.


*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.
