Vegan Superfood Buckwheat Banana Pancakes

Breakfast, Eggless, Gluten-Free, Nut-Free, Sugar-Free, Vegan



Hi everyone! Today I’ve got another fabulous pancake recipe for you! I received so much great feedback for my basic vegan gluten-free pancakes that I thought I just had to make another pancake recipe! My first pancake recipe is great, but I won’t lie… these vegan buckwheat banana pancakes are just as good, if not better! Not only are they fluffy and thick (without any eggs), they taste amazing with a lovely sweet banana flavour and are not overpowered by the taste of buckwheat as some buckwheat pancakes tend to be, because the cornmeal and bananas mask that. They are super healthy thanks to superfood ingredients such as buckwheat (which also makes them gluten-free) and chia seeds. They also have a bit of maca in them for a little energy boost in the morning when we need it the most!

These banana pancakes are very versatile as you can leave out the chia and maca. I use soy milk in this recipe but you can also use any other kind of vegan milk you like and they would still taste great! I also use coconut oil to cook them with but if you don’t have it or don’t have access to it, don’t worry! You can substitute that for some good quality margarine, and if you don’t have margarine then also some cooking spray or vegetable oil would work just fine too!

Since these pancakes are sweet thanks to the bananas, no extra sweetener of any kind is needed. Just make sure to use bananas that are ripe! wink You can also use any toppings you like on them!


This is not related to food or cooking at all, but I thought that I’d share that tomorrow is my birthday! I’m going to be spending a few days in Prague and I can’t wait! Also, thank you for subscribing to my YouTube channel and reading my blog! I really appreciate it and it gives me so much motivation to make more recipes for you! If you’re reading this, then don’t be shy to say hi to me on any of my social media networks such as Instagram or Twitter!
