Are you team pancake or team waffles? Personally, I’m team both BUT if I had to choose, pancakes take the cake. I catch myself making pancakes on the weekend far too often, as if that’s such a thing. I wanted a recipe that was easy to make for one, but also easy to scale up when cooking for friends. This recipe is perfect for that and not to mention calls for ingredients that are always on hand (at least in my household).

Ingredients in Vegan Banana Pancakes:

Instead of eggs and oil like traditional pancake mixes call for, this recipe requires pancake mix, bananas, and almond milk! This healthier alternative has a subtle banana flavor which I personally love, but the banana acts as a binding agent so no eggs are required. The almond milk is used as the oil substitute, making this recipe totally oil-free too! This eggless and oilless pancake recipe is truly a keeper.

Note: Although the recipe is oil free, I use the coconut oil cooking spray from Trader Joe’s which I cannot recommend enough! Regular coconut oil or butter will suffice too.

How to make vegan pancakes:

  • Start out by mashing your bananas. You can use the backside of a fork.
  • Pour in the almond milk and whisk well
  • Add pancake mix and whisk until just mixed

Your batter should be thick and pourable. Add more almond milk until desired consistency is reached. If the batter is too watery, try adding some more pancake mix.

Using a 1/3 measuring cup, pour batter into greased pan, or griddle and cook for 1-2 minutes on one side before flipping over. Easy peasy!

For this recipe, I used Wheat Montana 7 grain and flax pancake mix (affiliate link). This mix yields super fluffy pancakes and I highly recommend. Bob’s Red Mill (affiliate link) makes a great mix too!

    These pancakes are beautiful. I love that the ingredients are so healthy. My daughter loves banana pancakes. I can’t wait to make a batch of these for her.

    Simple and beautiful. My kids would love these super healthy banana pancakes again any minute. Easy and quick recipe. Thank you for sharing Amanda.

  3. Ahhh, Simplicity at it’s best! I haven’t had pancakes in SO long… we’re talking a few years, mostly because I’m a health nut AND because I haven’t found a good HEALTHY & VEGAN pancake recipe…. This one seems to fit the bill though! I always made from-scratch pancakes but I just purchased Lakanto Pancake and Waffle Mix and THIS is going to be exactly how I use it for the first time. It’s safe to say I have a banana love affair 😆😉. Can’t wait to try them… less is always more and the simplest of things usually turn out to be the best.
