Vegan Banana Pancakes
This has been one of our longest recipes in the creation. We’ve been testing various ingredients and methods for weeks now, and it was hard to get these vegan banana pancakes exactly how we wanted them. But we did, and not without a little help.
Tasty, fluffy pancakes without eggs and are difficult to make. They tend to go soft and ‘boring’ in the middle, and they’re usually a pretty poor substitute for real pancakes.
We learnt that to cook an amazing vegan pancake there are few must-dos, and they couldn’t be simpler. They are:
- Make sure the batter is smooth.
- Keep the pancakes small and thick.
- Cook on a low-medium heat. Don’t be tempted to go higher.
- Use a non-stick pan.
- Cook with a lid on.
- Flip the pancake when the face-up sidebegins to bubble.
Authentic Vegan Banana Pancakes. Ready in 20 minutes. Complete with easy to follow cooking instructions compiled by the best vegan pancake makers around!
- 1 cup rolled oats
- 1 cup soy milk (or your fave non-dairy)
- 1/3 cup wholemeal flour
- 2 tsp baking powder
- 1 pinch salt
- 1 ripe banana, medium
- oil for cooking (olive oil or coconut oil work great)
- 2 tbsp chia seeds
Put all the items into a large bowl and blend them using a hand blender.
Spray or drizzle oil in a non-stick pan, and spread around with a paper towel. Heat on a low-medium heat (don’t go higher!).
Pour in a small amount of the batter. The pancakes should be small and thick (see our pics for an idea).
Pop a lid on and let the pancake cook gently. When the side facing you starts to bubble, the other side is done. Time to flip! A spatula is easiest.
Once flipped, let the other side cook too. Have a peek at the underside using the spatula after a minute or so. When it’s nice and brown (but not burnt!) it’s ready. Woo!
Repeat. If you have a large pan then it’s possible to cook two or three small pancakes at the same time. Alternatively, if you’re feeling particularly flash then you can cook with two pans at the same time too. Serve straight away or stack the pancakes on a plate in a warm oven ‘til you’re ready to eat.
