Easy vegan banana pancakes with only 4 ingredients!

New year, new me.

That’s what I told myself.

After going vegan, and starting this blog, my intake of cakes, cookies and other sugary foods increased a little bit .

By the end of 2018 it left me feeling gross and bloated.

So, I vowed to get healthier this year.

But when you run a dessert blog, it isn’t that easy…

I like to taste EVERYTHING I bake. And taste it again. And again.

You know, just to make sure it’s perfect…

I realised that if I was to have any chance of sticking to my goals in 2019, I’d need to make healthier recipes.

That way, I can eat more of what I bake for this blog without turning into a baby elephant.

I’m not saying I’ll never bake unhealthy treats ever again. Because those tend to be the cheapest (and easiest) for you guys.

But I want most my recipes to be at least a little healthy from now on.

And the great thing about healthy desserts is that you can eat them for breakfast too!

To continue with my healthy Veganuary recipes, I recently made these easy, fluffy vegan banana pancakes.

These eggless, milkless pancakes are gluten-free, oil-free and naturally sweetened with fruit.

Woah.

How’s that for a healthy breakfast?

Even better, they contain only 4 ingredients! Banana, oats, plant milk and baking powder.

But although these pancakes contain only good-for-you ingredients, you won’t taste the difference.

I promise you; they taste INCREDIBLE.

You will love them because they are:

  • Dairy-free
  • Eggless
  • Healthy
  • Fluffy
  • Easy
  • Gluten-free
  • Oil-free
  • Naturally sweetened

Easy eggless pancakes

When I first made vegan pancakes, I really struggled to get them “fluffy” without using eggs.

They would either be too dense and chewy, or they’d turn to mush and stick to the pan.

But after finally cracking the code with the first vegan pancake recipe I posted, I’ve been able to make all kinds of adaptions.

And I finally figured out how to make them healthy!

What makes these vegan pancakes healthy?

Mainly the oat flour, which replaces bleached white flour in this recipe.

Making your pancakes with oat flour is basically just like having a fancy bowl of oatmeal.

Healthy and delicious.

I used to think oat flour was an expensive, hard to find ingredient.

But then I realised it’s just ground up oats.

Doh!

I used to buy big bags of oats from the supermarket and grind them up into flour using my blender.

But now I like to use these oats from Bulk Powders for quickness and convenience.

I also like the fact these pancakes contain no refined sugar. Just the natural sweetness of the banana!

But if you don’t like bananas that’s OK!

It’s SUPER easy to change this pancake recipe to one without bananas.

All you need to do is sub the banana for 2 tablespoons of applesauce. I’d recommend making your own for healthiness but most supermarkets also sell it at a reasonable price.

Top tips for making healthy vegan pancakes:

  • Work quickly! Oat flour is a lot more absorbent than regular flour so will turn mushy if left for too long.
  • Use a medium to low heat! I made the mistake far too many times of having the heat too high and ending up with burnt pancakes. *cries*
  • Look out for bubbles when you’re cooking the pancakes. These bubbles will form when it’s time to flip.
  • Get creative with the toppings. Some of my favourites include peanut butter, berries or chocolate sauce.
  • Don’t forget the maple syrup! What is the point in pancakes without syrup?

So there we have it: 4 ingredient healthy vegan pancakes.
