Today I have for you the recipe for one of my favorite breakfasts, these delicious and super easy to make banana coconut pancakes. If the word vegan instantly makes you skeptical of how delicious these could possibly be, I think you should just give them a try before you make a hasty judgement ;)
> 2 RIPE Bananas (The spottier, the better)
> 1/2 cup oats
> 1 1/2 Tbs Coconut Sugar (You can swap in brown sugar if that's what you have)
> 1/2 Tsp Baking Powder
> 1 Tbs Chia Seeds (sort of optional, it's not the end of the world if you don't include them)
> 1 1/2 Tbs (or more if you want) Shredded Coconut
> 1/2 cup (ish) milk of your choosing (I used vanilla soy milk for this batch but I also like to use almond milk or coconut milk, it just depends on what we have)
Okay so that's the basic batter, and you want to throw all of that into the blender until the oats are all ground up and everything is blended smooth.
Then... you can stir in some extras like nuts, chocolate, blueberries, more coconut, whatever floats your boat.
I use a 1/3 cup measuring cup to scoop out my batter onto the griddle and it usually makes 4-5 pancakes depending on how big the bananas were. Let them cook until they start to puff up and get bubbles on the top just like with normal pancakes and then flip and let the other side get nice and golden brown too.
These pancakes are so sweet that you don't need syrup, I usually just top them with some more blueberries and coconut like in the picture.
If you give these a try pretty please let me know, I'd love to hear what you think! You can leave a comment or tweet me @xomotheblog :)
