For the longest time I was convinced that pancakes were completely nutritionally void and therefore not worth eating. But then I grew a brain and realized that not only are they delicious, but with a few easy tweaks you can seriously up the nutrition quality! Replace white flour with whole wheat, replace ¼ cup of flour with ground flax, and sprinkle with hemp hearts to boost the fiber and omega-3 content. These vegan banana pancakes do not disappoint!
I hope you love these vegan banana pancakes! They are:
- A little bit sweet
- & Delicious!
These vegan banana pancakes make the perfect special-occasion or entertaining breakfast!

- 1 cup (240ml) non dairy milk
- 2 tbsp coconut oil
- 1 large banana *ideally spotty/starting to brown
- 1 1/4 cups whole wheat flour
- 1/4 cup ground flax *can replace 1:1 with flour
- 1 tbsp baking powder
- 1/4 tsp baking soda
- 1 tsp cinnamon

- Add all ingredients (ideally add liquids first) to a blender and blend until combined and smooth. Don’t over blend! Let the batter rest for 5-10 minutes.
- Preheat a griddle or frying pan to medium and lightly grease with vegan butter. Ladle ~1/3 cup scoops of batter onto the griddle and cook until bubbles appear, then flip gently and cook for another 2-3 minutes. Tip: sprinkle pancakes with hemp hearts before you flip them to boost the nutrition!
- Top with toppings of your choice. My personal favourite way to eat pancakes is with a healthy slathering of PB and berries!
- Optional: stir in fruits, nuts, or chocolate chips to the blended batter before cooking for something extra!
