Ever since I figured out that I have a severe sensitivity to eggs, brunch hasn’t been the same. My trade off for no stomach aches was to cut eggs benny out of my weekending and it has been quite the compromise. Alas, my new mission in life is to find exciting vegan-ish breakfast options! What I especially love about this recipe is that it’s quite hearty, which seems to satisfy both a sweet and savoury craving.
These banana pancakes are simple and delicious, thanks google! Originally found these on Hurry The Food Up, where they also provide some nutritional information. I made a couple adjustments myself (the chocolate, obviously) and mine of course didn’t turn out looking anything like theirs. I’ve never tried cooking them with a lid on top of the pan, but maybe I’ll give that a go this Saturday!
If you’re looking for a new breakfast idea, I cannot recommend these enough! This particular recipe makes plenty for 2 people, and we usually like to save a couple leftover pancakes to heat up the next day. When you put in the effort to make a breakfast, it’s a bonus being able to have leftovers as well! And, the only reason that I cannot classify this exact recipe as vegan, is that I’m a chocolate fiend and added chocolate chips AND some slivers of baking chocolate to the recipe. I mean, if you’re going for it, really go for it, right?! Hope you enjoy xo
VEGAN-ISH BANANA PANCAKES
1 cup of oats
1 cup of almond milk (or soy, or regular if you’re not vegan)
1/3 cup of flour (wholemeal if you prefer)
2 tsp of baking powder
1 large or 2 small banana(s)
2 tbsp of chia seeds
a pinch of salt
coconut oil for cooking
chocolate chips (makes them non vegan), fresh fruit, and/or chopped walnuts as optional toppings
- Put all of the ingredients into a large bowl and use a hand mixer to blend it together
- Add some coconut oil to a non-stick pan and turn it onto medium heat (I never have time for low heat settings in the morning, but low-med is preferred to avoid burning)
- If you’re going to add in any chocolate chips or berries to your pancakes, lightly mix them into your batter
- Once the pan is heated, add a heaping spoonful of batter. I like to make 3 small but thick pancakes at a time
- Flip them after about a minute, or until the other side is golden brown
- Stack em up and add your toppings like fresh berries, maple syrup, chocolate shavings, and/or walnuts!
