  • 2 medium bananas, mashed
  • 2 cups organic all-purpose flour (I use Bob's Red Mill)
  • 2 tsps baking powder
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 2 Tbsps flaxseed meal + 4 Tbsps WARM water (This makes 2 'flax eggs')
  • 2 cups Almond milk (You can use your fave plant-based milk!)
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2-3 Tbsps Agave (See Notes!)
  • 2 Tbsps vegan butter, melted + 1 Tbsp for cooking (I use Earth's Balance; See Notes!)

Optional Toppings:

  • Sliced Bananas
  • 1/2 cup Peanut Butter, warmed
  • Your fave nuts (pecans, walnuts, etc.)


  • Add the flaxseed meal and water together in a small bow, stirring together until combined and letting it sit for 5 minutes until it becomes "paste-like".
  • In a large bowl, add the flour, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt together and whisk until well combined.
  • In a separate bowl, whisk together the mashed bananas, milk, Agave, melted butter, and vanilla, until combined.
  • Make a small well in the middle of the dry ingredients and pour in the wet ingredients, stirring gently (using a spatula) until just combined. NOTE: **DO NOT OVERMIX**
  • Next, warm a skillet over medium-high heat for 1-2 minutes. Then, using a paper towel, add vegetable oil and grease the bottom of the pan.
  • Add 1 Tbsp vegan butter to a heated skillet over medium-high heat and wait until fully melted. Pour 1/3 cup of pancake batter unto the surface of the skillet and cook for about 1-2 minutes (until batter begins to bubble) and gently flip pancake to it’s opposite side, cooking another 1-2 minutes. NOTE: Be sure to gently press down on pancake to ensure that center cooks through.
  • Once cooked and lightly brown on both sides, remove pancake from heat and repeat steps until all batter is used.
  • To serve, stack pancakes onto one another and top with banana slices, warmed peanut butter, your favorite nuts (optional), and lightly drizzle with maple syrup, if desired.
  • Bon Appetit!


GLUTEN-FREE VERSION: To make these pancakes GF, I recommend using a GF Flour Blend (Bob’s Red Mills has a great version!). **NOTE: If the batter is too ‘thin + runny’, simply add additional GF flour, 1/4 cup at a time.**
SWEETENER: If you choose to opt out of Agave, you can always substitute with pure maple syrup, date syrup, coconut sugar, brown sugar, or pure cane sugar.
OIL: Instead of melted vegan butter,  you can use vegetable oil or coconut oil, if preferred.
