I am sharing with you my favourite vegan pancake recipe: these chocolate chip banana pancakes. The combo of banana and chocolate chips in these fluffy vegan pancakes is the best! I love making these chocolate chip banana pancakes on Sunday mornings! I thought it was about time I shared these vegan banana pancakes with you.
Tips for making my chocolate chip banana pancakes:
In this fluffy vegan pancake recipe I used wholemeal flour but you could also substitute with spelt flour or oat flour. To make them gluten-free I recommend using quinoa or buckwheat flour. The pancakes are refined-sugar-free but I use maple syrup to serve along with extra chocolate chips! An extra banana sliced is also a great topping for these delicious pancakes!
When mixing the ingredients I always start with mashing the bananas and try to remove any lumps. Then I add the flour and combine gently. I pour in the milk and combine. I finish off by adding the baking powder and combine. The pancake batter then becomes a little fluffy and I gently fold in the chocolate chips. Don’t over mix when the baking powder makes the pancake batter more airy otherwise your pancakes won’t be as fluffy as mine.
When making them I use a flat pan and avocado oil spray on medium to low heat. I flip them after about 1 minute on one side and cook for 1-2 minutes on the other side.
