How To Make The Best Vegan Pancakes
Here’s the thing- you don’t need sugar, milk, eggs, or even butter to have amazingly light and fluffy vegan banana pancakes. Last year, I made a recipe for Vegan Lemon Spelt Pancakes to test this theory out and was rewarded with delicious pancakes for breakfast for weeks. I’m happy to say that, after a few attempts, this recipe not only produces similar tasty results but is even easier to prepare. These banana pancakes use staples that I bet you already have in your home and the best part is- all you need is a blender and a great pan!
Some Key Ingredients:
Every ingredient in this recipe is obviously important, but there are two ingredients I want to give a special shout out. Truth is, it’s really the bananas and maple syrup that make these pancakes go from good to great:
Part of the reason these pancakes need so little added sweetener is because of the bananas added into the batter. Plus, the bananas serve as an egg replacement to bind the pancake batter together during baking! I recommend using brown spotty bananas instead of greener bananas for the absolute best tasting pancakes. You can also easily replace the bananas in this recipe with pumpkin or even apricots if you want to try out a new flavor.
Really Good Maple Syrup!
Okay, so I have to be honest with you all and give some much-needed advice. Please please don’t skimp on the maple syrup you use in this recipe! I love Coombs Maple Syrup, Runamok Syrup (made in Vermont so you know it’s good), and even Kirkland Organic (seriously even though it’s Costco brand, it’s legit so delicious!). No Auth Jemima or other fake syrups allowed!
The Best Way To Top Your Vegan Pancakes:
You can definitely top your vegan banana pancakes with maple syrup, however, here are a few additional toppings you absolutely need to try:
- Fresh Blueberries! Need I say more?
- Sliced Fresh Bananas or Caramelized Bananas. To caramelize bananas, simply add a little coconut oil to a pan and cook the bananas until crispy, flip, then cook the other side. This only takes an additional 5-10 minutes and is so worth it!
- Coconut Whipped Cream. Check out the recipe for these Vegan Funfetti Buns to find the perfect Vanilla Coconut Whipped Cream recipe!
- Vegan Lemon Curd (and only 5 ingredients!)
- Any flavor jam! I personally always gravitate towards raspberry jam on these pancakes, but apricot jam, blueberry jam, or even apple butter would be extra delicious!
The Making of a Perfect Sunday Brunch!
While I was on my blogging break we seriously made these fluffy vegan banana pancakes every weekend we were home. I even substituted the banana with apricots while stone fruit was still in season. Taking some time away to enjoy slow mornings filled with homemade pancakes, a perfect Iced Mint Latte, and my favorite humans (and pup) brought me so much joy this summer. I hope these fluffy and delicious Healthy Vegan Banana Blender Pancakes bring you a perfect slow weekend morning too!
