Dom's Vegan Banana Pancakes
Cooking Time: 25 mins
Makes: 7 pancakes
1 ripe banana
3/4 cup plant milk (I use oat)
1.5 tsp vegetable oil (plus extra for cooking the pancakes)
1-1.5 tbsp maple syrup (depends how sweet you want the pancakes to be, I usually eyeball this)
Pinch of salt
1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
2 tsp baking powder
Mash the banana in a large bowl. Add the plant milk, vegetable oil, maple syrup, and salt, and mix until well combined.
Add the flour gradually, mixing it into the wet ingredients as you go. Stir the batter vigorously for a few minutes – this will develop the gluten in the flour and prevent your pancakes from deflating.
Add the baking powder 1 tsp at a time, mixing as you go.
Allow the batter to rise for a few minutes. While the batter is rising, slice up a banana, which you will use to top the pancakes.
Heat up a pan with oil at medium high heat, and spoon in the batter once the oil is hot. Flip when the top of the pancakes look less wet and many bubbles have started to appear. Flip the pancakes lightly, so as not to deflate them.
When both sides are golden brown, remove the pancakes from the pan. Top with the sliced banana and maple syrup, and enjoy! Note: these pancakes are fantastic when stacked and layered with banana.
We hope you try it!
