Ingredients Needed to Make Vegan Banana Pancakes Without Milk

Here is everything you will need to whip up a batch of these banana pancakes without milk.

  • Oats – Essential for getting these fluffy, nutty-flavored, melt-in-your-mouth pancakes. Definitely recommend using rolled oats here.
  • Soy Milk or Plant-Based Milk – I use soy milk, but feel free to use any plant-based milk of your choice.
  • Banana – Adding the perfect amount of sweet to these dairy-free banana pancakes and not to mention is also packed with tons of vitamins as well.

How To Easily Make Dairy & Egg-Free Banana Pancakes

This recipe takes just a few minutes to pull together, here are the steps.

STEP 1: MAKING THE BATTER

It is certainly fine to mix and combine all the ingredients in a bowl for this one. I like adding all the ingredients to a blender, mixing until fully combined. Be sure not to overmix.

The batter consistency should be lump-free and smooth. If it is runny, add an additional tablespoon of oats. If it is too thick, you can add an additional tablespoon of plant-based milk of your choice.

Let the mixture stand for about 5 minutes to allow the ingredients to marry and the oats to soften.

STEP 2: COOKING THE PANCAKES

While the mixture stands, heat a non-stick pan or griddle on low to medium heat.

Using a ¼ cup measure, scoop the batter onto the non-stick pan or griddle and cook for 2 to 3 minutes until you see small bubbles form on the surface of the pancakes, the bubbles will be uniform throughout the top and the side lightly brown in color.

By now your kitchen will be smelling amazing, go ahead and flip and cook on the opposite side for about 1 to 2 minutes, or until golden brown.
