You guys have been asking for this! Finally perfected a vegan pancake recipe, and it is SO good.

I’m typically a savory breakfast girl, but when I’m feeling it pancakes are definitely my favorite sweet breakfast. You can make them with simple and healthy ingredients while still feeling like such a treat in the morning! Best way to start the day.

This past week I was switching off between these and my broccoli cheddar biscuits for breakfast, depending on what I was in the mood for! I made a double batch of the pancakes for photographing purposes, but I was happy to have some leftovers around to reheat ๐Ÿ™‚

Typically around this time of year with all of the holidays, I do start to crave these cozy, sweet breakfasts. This one is perfect because it’s a healthy spin on classic pancakes, but still satisfies that sweet tooth. You could definitely make these Thanksgiving or Christmas morning for the whole family (just double or triple the batch!).

These pancakes are only made with:

  • banana
  • old fashion oats
  • dairy free milk
  • chia seeds
  • coconut sugar

Plus a few other simple add ins. You would never know these were vegan and gluten free. They are too fluffy and delish to notice! I top mine with pure maple syrup and banana!

Enjoy! xx

    We love this recipe! My sister is a pancake officialdom and approves (even requests!!) these healthier versions. I like to replace the coconut sugar with a tbsp or 2 of maple sugar and add choc chip, of course. these are great with a thick spread of PB, too โ˜บ๏ธ

    Dang, followed the recipe exactly and the batter was was to thick and the
    pancakes were not fluffy…I even had to add more milk to even get them to spread in the pan. What could I have done wrong?
