Fluffy Vegan Banana Pancakes

These hit all the right notes of deliciousness. They are packed with nutrients, are seriously fluffy, and have a perfect burst of banana flavor.

– Very ripe banana – Buckwheat or whole wheat flour – Ground flaxseed – Vanilla extract and cinnamon – Neutral oil – Baking powder – Milk

Ingredients Needed:

Mash the banana very smooth with a fork. Try to get out as many big lumps as you can for the best final texture.

Step 1.

Stir together the flour, flaxseed, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt in a medium bowl. (If you don’t have flaxseed, you can substitute chia seeds, instant oats, or oat flour.)

Step 2.

Stir in the banana, milk, oil, and vanilla. Gently combine to make a uniform, thick batter. Heat a cast-iron or nonstick skillet or griddle over medium heat.

Step 3.

Coat with neutral oil. Spoon out ¼ cup of the batter at a time, or less to make smaller pancakes, and spread to an even thickness about ½-inch thick.

Step 4.

Let cook about 3 minutes or until the edges are set. Carefully flip and cook for another 1-2 minutes.

Step 5.

Serve immediately and repeat with the rest of the batter, or keep warm on a baking sheet in a 200-degree-F oven. Serve with maple syrup, sliced banana, or other desired topping.

Step 6.
