American-Style Vanilla Pancakes

Whoever said you needed eggs to make a fluffy, American-style pancake massively underestimated the power of the good ol’ flax-egg and baking powder trick. As well as being completely vegan, these pancakes have also got a secret banana hidden inside so are technically one of you’re 5-a-day…you can thank me later…


  • 1 ripe banana
  • 1/2 cup plant milk
  • 3/4 cup self-raising flour (GF works too)
  • 1 tbsp flaxseed
  • 2 tbsp liquid sweetener (agave, maple syrup etc.)
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • Pinch salt


  1. In a blender or food processor, combine the banana, milk, oil and sweetener and blend until smooth.
  2. In a separate bowl combine the remaining ingredients, add the liquid mixture and stir well.
  3. Heat a non-stick pan over a medium-high heat.
  4. Add 1/4 cup of the pancake mixture to the pan at a time and cook for 2-3 minutes or until bubbles start to appear in the centre and flip. Cook for 2 more minutes on the second side.
  5. Repeat with the rest of the mixture (makes 5-7 pancakes).
Stir 2 tbsp chopped dark chocolate into the mixture before cooking for Choc Chip Pancakes like these!
