Vegan Banana Pancakes

Get ready, set, flip... We've partnered up with The Venetian Pantry to bring you a delicious vegan, banana pancake recipe that's super easy to make. 

  • Recipe makes four pancakes
  • Prep time: ten mins
  • Cooking time: three mins

Ingredients:

Feel free to swap normal self-raising flour with a gluten-free one, and oat milk with your favourite plant-based milk. Just don’t skip on the spices, they are the secret ingredients to give the pancakes that signature yolky colour.

  • 1 ripe banana
  • 100 gr self-raising flour (self-raising gluten-free flour works just as well!)
  • 120/130 ml oat milk (or other alternative milk of your choice)
  • 2 tbsp coconut oil
  • 1/2 tsp turmeric
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 pinch of salt
  • 3 drops of orange essence (or vanilla essence) 

Method

  1. Peel and mash the banana in a bowl using the back of a fork
  2. Add all the wet ingredients to the banana, mixing to incorporate
  3. In a separate bowl, mix together all the dry ingredients 
  4. Sift the dry ingredients into the bowl with the wet ones and gently combine them together, until you obtain a runny batter. Add a splash of milk if the batter is looking too solid.
  5. Scoop a dollop of batter into the centre of a hot pan placed over medium heat. Wait for about two minutes, until the sides of the pancake look solid and the surface is bubbling.
  6. Flip the pancake and let it cook for another minute.
  7. Serve the pancakes with a generous pour of maple syrup and some sliced banana, pecans and candied orange peel. Or go wild and add your favourite toppings.
