Too Much Banana?
The issue I kept running into when recipe testing these vegan banana pancakes was wanting to use too much banana in the batter.
Cooking these pancakes on a gas stove, they would have been burned on the outside before I got to the right texture on the inside. The flavor was great! But it was too wet inside.
So I had to reduce the amount of banana until I used just one large banana in the batter. It’s not a lot, but it turned out to be just enough so that the pancakes have delicious banana flavor, but are still nice and light and fluffy inside, and not weighed down by too much banana.
How To Make Vegan Banana Pancakes
- Making the batter is just a simple case of sifting some flour into a mixing bowl and adding a little sugar, baking powder, salt and cinnamon and mixing together.
- Mash banana in a bowl with coconut oil and add it to the mixing bowl along with soy milk and vanilla extract and mix into a thick batter.
- Heat up a pan with some coconut oil until hot and then add in around ¼ cup of batter for your first pancake. When it starts looking a little dry along the edges with little bubbles on top then it’s time to flip it and cook it on the other side until nicely browned.
- Serve topped with loads of sliced banana and drizzles of syrup!
Measure the banana correctly. You can either weigh our your banana on a food scale and then mash it up in a bowl with the coconut oil OR if you don’t have a food scale, then mash the banana first so that you can measure out the correct amount in your measuring cup.
Cook the pancakes long enough. Even with the perfect amount of banana in these pancakes you do still have to cook them until very nicely browned on each side, flipping often, and pressing down with your spatula, so that they have time to get perfectly cooked on the inside.
You can replace the regular flour in this recipe with a gluten-free all purpose blend.
Leftover pancakes can be stored in the fridge for up to 5 days. Reheat them in the toaster or microwave.
These banana pancakes are freezer friendly for up to 2 months. You can reheat them directly from frozen in the toaster.
