  1. Mash bananas in a large bowl. Add all of the remaining ingredients and stir until well combined.
  2. Preheat a large pan over medium heat. Add a bit of coconut oil to the pan to prevent sticking.
  3. Dollop spoonfuls of batter into the pan, using the back of your spoon to shape the batter into round pancake shapes.
  4. When lightly golden on the bottom, flip, and let cook on the other side.
  5. Add desired toppings, and enjoy!


  • * Nutrition tip: aim to use plant-based milk that is fortified with calcium. You may notice in the video we mentioned using ¾ cup of plant-based milk, but after having made this pancake recipe time and time again, I've found that a full cup results in a smoother batter consistency.


  • Best if enjoyed the day they are made, but they also freeze well with parchment paper in between each pancake so they don’t stick together. If frozen, enjoy within 1 month.
  • Simply pop in the toaster or oven to defrost and enjoy.

It was soooo good! I used almond milk instead of soi (allergies make being vegan hard haha) added chopped dark chocolate and 1/2 tsp of tahini to the batter simply because I can’t fully follow a recipe for the life of me ;)

Hi Weronika - we're so glad you enjoyed the pancakes! Always fun to add our own twists to recipes 😃

Such a simple yet flavorful recipe!! I just have a question... can we store the leftover batter in the refrigerator?

PUL Team - May 22, 2021, 7:23 a.m.

Hey Sam! We haven't tested it out but we imagine you could store the batter in an airtight container in the fridge for around 2 days. It probably would be best to give it a good stir before using it. Let us know how it goes if you give it a try 🤗

First time trying this one, I added frozen blueberries on one side before flipping, I was delicious!
Thank you 😊

Such a lovely idea to add blueberries to the pancakes, Rita! Thank you sharing 😃

I'm in awe with this simple, fast & easy to make and very delicious pancake recipe! not only do they have a wonderful texture, taste amazing but are also adaptable. i only used 1 banana and substituted the rest with sugar free apple sauce and used an apple cake spice blend. then i filled (+ topped) two pancakes with vegan cheese and put some blueberries + raspberries into some of them and left the rest with just pure batter - all veeeryyyyy delicious! they're not that sweet which is why they go with every flavour direction (in my opinion). so, thank you for another incredibly satisfying recipe. you're the best 💚

Aww thank YOU so much for the glowing review, Lara! That does sound super delicious 😍 We're so grateful to have you in our PUL family ✨🤗
