Basic Banana Pancakes

Let’s start off by saying that I have quite a few different pancake recipes on my blog: chocolate chip cookie dough, sweet potatospinach, etc.

But what I don’t have is just a plain, basic, pancake recipe. Why get all complicated and confusing when you can strip right down to the simple stuff? This recipe is as easy as it gets; and it’s vegan and gluten free.

Bananas are awesome! And super healthy. You can read about the full health benefits of bananas here: http://www.well-beingsecrets.com/bananas-health-benefits/

Ingredients
  1. 2 cups of oat flour
  2. 2 tbsp. coconut sugar
  3. 1 large banana
  4. 1 cup almond milk
  5. 1 tsp. baking powder
  6. 3 tbsp. pure maple syrup
  7. optional(for extra flavour): 1 tsp. cinnamon, 1 tsp. peanut butter
Instructions
  1. Begin with pouring your oat flour into a large mixing bowl. (If you don't have oat flour, simply blend gluten free oats in a magic bullet or small blender, and voila, oat flour is made.
  2. Add in your dry ingredients: 2 tbsp. brown sugar, 1 tsp. baking powder, 1 tsp. cinnamon
  3. In a magic bullet or small blender, break up and add 1 large banana and 1 cup almond milk. Blend this together to create a banana mylk.
  4. Pour your banana mylk into the bowl containing your dry ingredients. Also add 3 tbsp. of maple syrup and 1 tsp. of peanut butter. (If desired)
  5. Mix everything together well and if the mix is dry, add a bit more almond milk until you reach a thinner consistency. You don't want the mix TOO thin though, but thick enough to make thick pancakes.
  6. Make sure your burner is on 300 degrees Fahrenheit and grease it with coconut oil.
  7. Pour small blobs of pancake mix onto your pan and flip them when they brown.
  8. This batch should make 10 small pancakes. Cut the yield in half to make 5.
Notes
  1. Top with fruit and pure/natural maple syrup.

    Wow, your recipes look sooo good!!! I want to try this pancakes and got a little question: Can I also use normal flour and cow milk? (I know it’s not vegan anymore but I just want to know, if it would taste good as well 🙂 )

      Thanks so much 🙂 And I don’t know if it would taste good or not as I don’t eat those things! If you don’t have the original ingredients I guess you could always try it!

    These look so good! Breakfast is one of the areas where I really struggle so it would be so nice to be able to have these as an option. One question, though: could almond flour be used instead of oat flour? I’m gluten-free and oats, even gluten-free, and I simply don’t get along.

      Thank you! 🙂 And um I’m not sure because I haven’t used almond flour, but if it’s similar to oat flour, I’m sure you could try it 🙂 Or chickpea flour or rice flour, or tapioca flour 🙂 Anything grain/wheat free. Goodluck x

    […] You can meal prep pretty much anything, including pancakes. I’ve made pancakes the night before, then just stuck them in the fridge overnight. That way you can either eat them cold, or just quickly heat them up in the toaster! Or if you’re going to work or somewhere that has a toaster, you can heat them up there and eat them. Find a recipe for my basic banana pancakes here. […]
