Banana Pancakes {vegan, gluten free}

January 25, 2015 | 11 comments

The stress of second semester is really starting to kick in. I figuratively fall over the piles of books and papers for projects and homework and when the reality of high school starts to dawn on me, I want to crawl into a hole and hide.

I feel like I’m on the edge of a cliff, tottering and faltering, and hanging to the last strand keeping me upright.

At times like this, it’s really enjoyable to go into the kitchen and let all the stress fall off. Of course, I could just have a breakdown instead, but I’d prefer to keep my mental health intact, thank you very much.

{↑ GIF!!! It’s amazing, if I do say so myself.}

So naturally, I made pancakes! Of course, you do have to stand there flipping them for a while, but when you’re finished, you get rewarded with a stack of fluffy, syrupy pancakes!

-Use gluten free oats if you want these gluten free.
-Don’t use animal milk if you want these vegan.

Banana Pancakes


  • 1 cup oats
  • 1 bananas
  • 1/4 cup milk {cow almond, rice, water, etc.}
  • 1 tbsp oil
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • ¼ tsp cinnamon
  • ½ tsp vanilla
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1 tsp baking powder


  1. Grind the oats in a food processor until floury. Add in a ripe banana and blend until there are no banana lumps. Add in the rest of the ingredients.
  2. Brush the pan with some butter and drop small spoonfuls onto the hot pan. Cook until the pancakes have bubbles on the top. Flip and cook until golden.
  3. Serve with fruit, maple syrup, and/or powdered sugar.

    Pancakes !! C’est toujours parfait pour les petits déjeuners ! J’adore l’idée de mixé le pure des bananes dedans la mixture des pancakes ! Normalement moi je met quelques petites tranches de banane par dessous mais il faut que j’essaie de cette manière ! x

      Vraiment? J’ai essayé de faire des pancakes avec des petites tranches de banane par-dessous, mais je pensais qu’il est un peu dégoutant. 😛
      Oui, tu dois les faire !

    Your egg-free pancakes look yummy. I never manage to get my free from ones quite that thick and fluffy. Do you think I could substitute the flour for a free from blend?

      Probably, but I’ve never tried it so I couldn’t give you any reliable suggestions. Sorry!
      Thanks, Mel!

      Well, there’s really no secret… I just take a bunch of photos in quick succession and make them into a .gif using Photoshop. I might adjust the brightness a bit (like I do with most of my pictures), but other than that, there’s nothing else! 😉

    I never usually leave comments but just wanted to tell you that these were delicious! I made them this morning. I’ve been looking for a oat based vegan pancake recipe. I’ve tried a bunch already with no success. These were perfect! Thanks!

    I came home from a night shift determined to make these. Good news! Even if you forget the milk they still taste amazing. This is an awesome recipe my husband and 2 year old loved it!
