Banana Pancakes are a favorite breakfast in our home. They are easy to make, and everyone loves them! They’re wonderful served with a little maple syrup or applesauce. Notice that I just put the egg replacer dry into the flour mixture. I read somewhere that you could do this, so I tried it and noticed no difference in the pancakes’ texture or fluffiness. Doing so eliminates an extra step, which makes prep time even shorter.

Ingredients

  • 1½ cups whole wheat flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 tablespoon egg replacer
  • 2 bananas, mashed (¾−1 cup)
  • 1½ cups unsweetened, unflavored plant milk
  • 1 cup sparkling water
  • 1 cup fresh or frozen blueberries (optional)

Instructions

  1. Place the flour, baking powder, salt, and egg replacer in a bowl and mix. Place the bananas in another bowl and mash well. Stir in the plant milk and sparkling water and mix again. Pour into the dry ingredients, and stir to combine, being careful not to overmix.
  2. Heat a nonstick griddle over medium heat. Pour ¼ cup of the batter onto the dry, heated griddle, and flatten it a bit with the bottom of your measuring cup. Flip when the bubbles start to appear and pancake edges start to turn golden. Cook until brown on both sides. Repeat until all batter has been used.
  3. Serve hot topped with the blueberries, or refrigerate or freeze the pancakes.

    Note:
    Consistency: For a slightly thinner pancake (or if you let your batter sit too long before using it), thin the batter with a little more plant milk before pouring it onto the griddle. If you prefer a thicker pancake, mix in just ½ cup of the sparkling water; then add more sparkling water as needed to achieve your desired consistency.
