Recipe type: Clean Eating, Vegan Breakfast Recipe
Total Time: 25 minutes
Prep: 10 minutes
Cook: 15 minutes

Yield: 4 servings, 8 pancakes (each serving is 2 pancakes)

Level: Easy
  • ¾ cup organic whole wheat flour
  • ¾ cup organic all-purpose flour
  • 1½ tablespoons ground flax seeds
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups light coconut milk
  • 2 tablespoons plus ¼ cup 100 percent pure maple syrup
  • 3 teaspoons plus 1½ teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 3 large bananas, peeled and sliced
  • 2 teaspoons extra virgin olive oil
  • Organic olive oil cooking spray
  1. Place a large, flat-bottomed skillet on the stove top and adjust the heat to medium-low.
  2. Add the whole wheat flour, all-purpose flour, flax, baking powder, baking soda, and salt to a large mixing bowl. Stir until well combined. Add the coconut milk, 2 tablespoons maple syrup, and 3 teaspoons vanilla extract. Whisk just until batter is smooth and well combined.
  3. Test to see if the pan is hot by splashing a few drops of water into the pan. The water will sizzle if the pan is ready. Spray the pan thoroughly with organic olive oil cooking spray.
  4. Use a ⅓ cup measuring cup to scoop the batter and pour onto pan. Leave a couple of inches of space between pancakes in order to have room to flip.
  5. Cook until edges of pancakes are firm and bubbles have formed in the center of the pancakes, about 3-5 minutes. Flip with a spatula, pancakes should be golden in color. Cook until second side is also golden, about 2-4 minutes more. Continue cooking pancakes in batches, adding a new layer of olive oil spray before each new batch.
  6. Meanwhile, as pancakes are cooking, heat 2 teaspoons olive oil in a small sauté pan over low heat. Add bananas, ¼ cup maple syrup, and 1½ teaspoons vanilla extract. Cook, stirring often, until bananas are softened and syrup begins to simmer, about 5 minutes. Top pancakes with spoonfuls of the bananas and syrup, and serve warm.
