Oat Banana Vegan Pancakes with Berries

Been working out all week and started back up with my dance practice, so I decided to have a quiet sunday while my sore muscles repair themselves. I had a sudden pancake craving, and we have a few bananas which are really close to being super mushy, so at that point I was sold. We also just recently got a crepe pan, so I had to try it out! These are mainly made of oats and bananas and worked out really well. Sometimes my vegan pancake adventures turn into delicious but pretty unattractive abstract blobs.


  • 1 1/4 cup rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
  • 2 tsp Baking Powder
  • 1/2 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • Couple pinches of Sea Salt
  • Optional: 1/4 tsp Cinnamon, 2 tbs finely shredded Coconut
  • 1 1/2 cups Almond Milk (Or Rice, Hemp, Soy…)
  • 2 Ripe Bananas
  • Fresh or Frozen Berries (I used cherries, raspberries, blueberries and blackberries)
  • Toppings: Maple Syrup or just use the juice from the berries and drizzle on top. You can also sprinkle with some oats, coconut, hemp seeds or cinnamon.
  • Extra Virgin Olive Oil or Coconut Oil (for skillet)

I’ve really wanted to try out a “stacked pancakes with dripping syrup” shot, so here is my debut…needs a bit of work but it looks pretty tasty, right? 😉


  1. Blend all of the ingredients (except for the berries, toppings and olive oil/coconut oil) together until smooth.
  2. Heat a non-stick skillet with a small amount of coconut oil or extra virgin olive oil to around medium heat. Get out a 1/4 cup or large spoon and use it to measure out the batter and pour into the heated skillet. (you can make them as large or small as you want, of course. I just made mine using just under a 1/4 cup of batter each and then I made a few smaller ones for fun). Heat for about 2-4 minutes on each side. They should be easy to flip over. The other side will probably need less cooking time, so make sure they don’t burn.
  3. While you are making your pancakes, you can get out a wok or another skillet to defrost the berries (if using frozen). If you have fresh berries, you may still choose to heat them up or leave them as is.
  4. When your pancakes are done, top with some berries and/or berry juice, maple syrup, oats, coconut, cinnamon, or whatever else strikes your fancy!

Enjoy :o)

  12. So mine turned out a mushy mess.
    I can barely flip them. I tried adding a bit more flour but that didn’t do much.
    I shall continue my search for the perfect vegan pancake. I thought this might be the one. Maybe I just suck at making pancakes or something haha

  13. Oh dear – I am very sorry to hear that. I usually have that problem with every other vegan pancake recipe I try, but these actually work great for me every time. Sorry they didn’t work out for you. I get so frustrated when pancakes don’t work out, so now I just stick to this recipe every time. Hope you find a recipe that you like. :o)

  14. Thanks for this recipe!!! I added flax to it. Also, although coconut oil is great for high heat cooking extra virgin olive oil isn’t. I would recommend coconut, grapes seed, or earth balance. Thanks again. Live this blog.

  15. Yay, thanks for reading and commenting! I now use coconut oil or no oil for my pancake recipes. Thanks for the suggestions. I’ve been making some cacao buckwheat pancakes that never need any oil at all, but coconut oil is always one of my faves to use! Cheers –Clare
