Vegan Banana Pancakes

Clean vegan pancake recipe!? I admit, it is harder to keep the mixture together & make it rise without the addition of eggs but still easily done.

I used buckwheat flower and a banana as the base, I then added cinnamon, coconut sugar and one date to sweeten the mixture up while adding almond milk to combine the ingredients. Don’t forget to add a dash of baking powder so they rise.

I topped mine with coconut yogurt, cacao nibs, buckwheats, shredded coconut and a drizzle of maple syrup on top- it adds a lot of texture and is so delicious. I try to add cacao nibs to anything sweet as they taste like chocolate chips and are a great source of magnesium which assists with muscle repair and sleep quality.

Ingredients

  • 1 small banana
  • 1/4 cup buckwheat flour
  • 2 tbl almond or coconut milk
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp coconut sugar
  • 1 date, soaked
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla essence

Topping

  • Coconut yogurt
  • Cacao nibs
  • Buckwheats
  • Shredded coconut

Method

  1. Add all ingredients into one container and briefly blend until the consistency slightly thick (I use my ninja bullet).
  2. Fry one at a time with the lid on in coconut oil.
  3. Layer on the toppings & enjoy!
