When people start to become vegan or want to try vegan recipes, they usually think they need to stop eating what they love. But that’s simply not not true.
All you need is to adapt the foods you like the most for a vegan lifestyle. Just because you’re vegan, that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy all the kinds of food, including yummy vegan pancakes!
Can you make vegan pancakes? Yes, you can and don’t need eggs and you don’t need milk. This comfort food can be a lazy breakfast for yourself, your partner or even the entire family! If you’re cooking it for your family or friends, they will probably not believe that this delicious banana pancake recipe is vegan. Even your non-vegan friends or family will ask for the recipe. Also, this can be a great option for a lazy holiday or weekend brunch.
You can also cook or show this recipe to someone that is pancake-crazy, I bet they will love it because it’s so easy and quick to cook. This recipe is filling, comforting and doesn’t skimp on flavor. If you want, you still can add some fruits, or even vegan chocolate! Now that’s an option for sweet lovers like myself.
Vegan treats don’t need to be boring, they can also be delicious! For another great vegan breakfast idea, be sure to check out this quick and easy vegan oatmeal recipe by Jaime over at BakingYouHappier that shares all things easy vegetarian and vegan living. She has some really yummy recipes. One of which I am trying this weekend is this peanut butter overnight oatmeal.

- 1/2 cup Oats
- 1/2 cup of your choice of Plant Based Vegan Milk
- 1 Banana
- Any extras you wish to add for more flavor: cinnamon, brown sugar, cacao or coconut flakes.
- First, pour your half a of cup of oats in a bowl. Grab the oats with a blender and blend into a kind of oat flour texture. Keep doing this until you think the texture is good.
- Now, add your plant based milk of your choice (these are the best plant based milks here) inside the bowl and mix it all up together using the blender again.
- Put the whole banana in there and blend it all together. It’s important to use a ripe banana in this recipe instead of green bananas because the green ones can give you stomach ache.
- Stir it up for a few minutes and and we are done with the mixture! Just like our easy no bake, dairy free cookies recipe, you are done! If you want, you can add cinnamon, brown sugar, cacao, coconut flakes or any other condiment you think it can be necessary, that’s if you want to make it fancy. Just make sure it’s vegan. If you’re going to add, you have to blend again.
- Heat up your pan with coconut oil. If you don’t want to use it, just make sure to use a nonstick pan. Wait untill it’s okay to start putting your pancakes on it.
- Pour your mixture into the pan and wait until you start seeing bubbles on it. When you see few bubbles, you can flip to the other side.
- After flipping to the other side, leave for a few minutes. Then you are done.
- After finish cooking all your pancakes, you can add anything you like, such as other fruits or maple syrup. The best thing about cooking pancakes is that you can be super creative with them and you can always try something new.
Ta-Da, it’s that easy to swap over your normal pancake recipe to a vegan pancake recipe. Remember, being vegan is not all about eating vegan and making good diet choices, what I’ve come to learn is that it’s not just about ourselves or the animals, it’s about sustainability and about making positive lifestyle choices. I’ve recently learnt a lot from Angela who is a happiness and lifestyle coach, where you can read more about her and her awesome blog posts (both for vegans and non-vegans) via her site: bodymindhealthcoach.com
