Tips on Making Vegan Banana Pancakes

You won’t get enough of these vegan banana pancakes with a single bite. You don’t only get an easy-to-follow recipe, but also valuable tips that will guarantee perfect pancakes every time. So read on, take notes, and bookmark this recipe for later.

  • First, use tender, overripe bananas. This is the perfect opportunity to use the ripe bananas you’ve forgotten about in the fridge. The more brown spots they have, the better the flavor they give!
  • You can just dump all the ingredients into a blender and have your batter ready in a minute. But if you want some chunks of banana on your batter, mashing with a fork is the way to go. Either way, do not overmix so they won’t develop gluten and be tough.
  • Rest the batter for at least 10 minutes while preheating the griddle. You can also go as far as overnight. This rest time allows the gluten to relax and the starch to set and thicken. As a result, the thick batter makes fluffy pancakes.
  • Want them gluten-free? You can substitute almond flour or oat flour. Moreover, you can make your own oat flour by blending up some rolled oats in a food processor.
  • Use vegan butter for frying. They’re rich and tasty and they give the banana pancakes a more beautiful browning than if you cook with oil. Similarly, you can also use coconut oil.
  • Lastly, toss in other ingredients into your homemade banana pancake batter. Try adding vegan chocolate chips, blueberries, dried cranberries, and nuts. You can also top them with a drizzle of almond butter, coconut sugar, or your preferred fruits.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why do my banana pancakes fall apart?

Banana pancake batters are more runny and delicate. So if you scoop and flip them as you would a regular pancake, the banana pancakes will easily break and fall apart. We suggest making them in smaller, more manageable pieces. In addition, use a flat wide spatula and flip them with a little bit more care.

Why are my vegan banana pancakes raw in the middle?

You might have put the batter in a pan that was too hot. As a result, the outer part of the pancake quickly turned brown before the middle part got fully cooked. Eggless banana pancake recipes really require more cooking time than regular pancakes. To fix your undercooked pancakes, microwave them in 10-second intervals. Most importantly, cook them low and slow next time.
