  • 2 flax eggs (2 tbsp ground flaxseed + 6 tbsp water)

  • 2 cups all-purpose or whole wheat flour

  • 1 ½ cup unsweetened almond or nut milk

  • 2 small ripe bananas (~1 cup, mashed)

  • 2 tsp baking powder

  • 2 tsp ground cinnamon

  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

  • ½ tsp salt


  • Make the flaxseed eggs by mixing the flaxseed and water in a small bowl. Set aside for 5 minutes or until thickened.

  • In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour, milk, mashed bananas, baking powder, cinnamon, vanilla & salt.

  • Mix in the flaxseed eggs.

  • Heat a non-stick frying pan or griddle on medium heat (you can add oil or vegan butter in the pan, but you shouldn't need it if you have a good non-stick pan or griddle).

  • Pour about 1/4 cup of the batter into the pan, making the pancakes about 2-3 inches wide.

  • When they begin to bubble, flip.

  • Cook until golden brown on each side.

  • Serve immediately with toppings such as: bananas, fresh berries, shredded coconut, cinnamon, agave nectar, pure maple syrup, nut butter, or dairy-free whipped cream.


Tips and Tricks:

  • These are great to freeze! Make a huge batch, let them cool completely, then store in a large silicone freezer bag. Microwave for ~1 minute (or until warm) for a quick breakfast on the go.
