Simple Pancakes

Yield: 12 "kid sized" pancakes

Simple Pancakes


  • 1 Ripe Organic Banana
  • 1/2 Cup Unsweetened Coconut milk
  • 1 teaspoon Apple Cider Vinegar
  • 1/4 Cup fresh Water
  • A splash of Vanilla, a dash of Cinnamon
  • 1 Cup Organic Oat Flour
  • 1 suuuuuper scant teaspoon each of Baking Soda and Salt
  • OPTIONAL 1/4 Cup Vegan Mini-Chocolate Chips (I use Enjoy Life. This addition no longer makes the pancakes sugar free)
  • OPTIONAL Organic Papaya or fresh fruit for topping
  • Organic Maple Syrup
  • Coconut Oil Spray (for the griddle)


Preheat your griddle to 350.

Measure the coconut milk and add the teaspoon of apple cider vinegar to create "vegan buttermilk". In a medium bowl, mash the banana until smooth and add the water, vanilla and cinnamon. Last add the "buttermilk" and whisk together.

In a separate small bowl, mix oat flour, baking soda, and salt and whisk into your wet ingredients. You'll begin to notice bubbles in your batter-- this is the baking soda and vinegar having a chemical reaction! this reaction makes our batter fluffy without using eggs.

If you are adding mini-chips, stir in now!

Evenly spray coconut oil over your griddle and spoon on small 2-3 inch rounds of batter. The pancakes will rise and get slightly brown on the bottom. Flip, pour, repeat! Enjoy with fresh fruit and maple syrup :)
