The Best Vegan Banana Pancake Recipe


I’ve tried several egg-free and also dairy-free pancake recipes but never quite been happy with the outcome, so when I tried this recipe and it actually turned out really nice I was over the moon. Now I have an easy, healthy go-to recipe that doesn’t even have egg in it – which means Lana can eat it too.

I’ve modified the original recipe slightly and I didn’t really follow the instructions as I’m too impatient and I have an one-year-old who demands my attention non-stop – but what I did worked so nae worries!


INGREDIENTS (6 pancakes)

  • 1 large ripe banana or 2 small ones
  • 1 dl oats
  • 1 dl buckwheat flour (or normal flour)
  • 2 dl non-dairy milk (or cows milk if you’re not vegan)
  • 0,5 dl wholemeal flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 tbsp chia seeds (optional)
  • dash of vanilla extract
  • sprinkle of cinnamon
  • coconut oil for cooking


Mash up the banana in a bowl, mix in the milk and the rest of the ingredients. The recipe I used said 2 dl of oats, but since I happened to have buckwheat flour I used that too. You could easily make this recipe gluten-free too by leaving out the wholemeal flour and replacing it with buckwheat flour (and by making sure you’re using pure, non-contaminated oats if you’re gluten intolerant). The batter will be quite thick, so don’t worry about that.

Let the batter stand for 10 minutes.

Heat up a small amount of coconut oil in a pan, add around 2 tablespoons of batter and cook on a low-medium heat until bubbles appear. Flip and cook until the other side is golden too. Enjoy with berries and yoghurt or whatever you fancy!

I think this is going to be my new Sunday morning treat 🙂

    Thanks for the recipe, sounds great. I will try for sure. How is your vegan life going? I still have cowspiracy here on my computer, I’m afraid to watch it but i will do it one day soon.
