Looking for a nice weekend treat to share with your loves ones or with yourself only? (yes it is allowed!) Don't look further, here is a delicious vegan pancake recipe.
The recipe is quick and simple as you only need 3 ingredients to make it. It is also a healthy dessert as it contains oat, bananas and plant-based milk.
For the bananas, you will need to use ripe bananas in this recipe as their taste is more powerful than non-ripe ones. Moreover, it will also give a sweet taste thanks to the natural sugar contains in it so no need to add extra sugar to this recipe.
For the milk, you can use any type of plant-based milk or dairy milk if you are not vegan.
For the oat flour, you can simply ground your normal porridge oat in order to have a nice ground powder. No need to buy oat flour, it works very well and it is easy to make it.
You can add any toppings you want but I would recommend the following :
Blueberries or any other berries - amazingly healthy fruits,
Almond butter or any other nut butter - rich in fatty acid and contains some proteins. It works also very well with pancakes.
Maple syrup - if you need to add an extra sweet taste to your pancakes
Chopped nuts like almond, pistachios, walnut, brazil nuts.... - Nuts are great because they are packed with Omega 3 and omega 6 fatty acid and with proteins
Caramel sauce - please note it is very sweety and fat so keep it as an occasional topping.
This recipe is great for anyone looking for a weekend breakfast, a delicious snack or a gourmet dessert. Indeed, it contains carbohydrate, fibre and calcium if your milk is fortified.
Vegan Banana Oat Pancake Recipe
2 ripe bananas
200g of oat flour
500ml of almond milk (or any other plant-based milk)
Topping (optional): almond butter, peanut butter, fresh blueberry, maple syrup...
In a bowl, add the flour then mash the bananas and add them to the preparation. Slowly add the almond milk and whisk well until well combined.
Grease a large pan, add some small circles of pancake dough. Once the dough has risen, flip the pancake on the other side for 1 minute or until the pancake is fully cooked.
Once baked, the pancakes need to be stored in the fridge. You can keep them for 2 to 3 days maximum but they taste better the first day.
