Caramelised Banana Topping (per 2 pancakes- see method instructions)
1 banana, sliced
Vegan Banana Pancakes
This is a one bowl mix so you can put all your ingredients in and whisk until everything is combined. Don’t worry about it being completely smooth, there will be some banana chunks in the batter.
Heat a small amount of oil in a frying pan on low-medium heat. I do this by wiping oil around the pan using some kitchen roll.
Add as many blobs of batter as your pan allows. I can do two or three at a time.
Wait until bubbles start to appear on the surface of the pancake then use a spatula to gently lift the sides of the pancake to check that the underneath is cooked.
If it isn’t quite done, leave for a bit longer but if it starts to smoke, you’ll need to flip it asap! You may need to turn your heat down a bit too.
If it’s nice and golden then flip away until the other side is golden.
Re-oil your pan before you add more batter to it and continue until you’ve made 8 pancakes.
Caramelised Banana Topping
Two pancakes make one serving (unless you think you need four to yourself) and I allow one banana per serving. If you are serving 8 pancakes to four people, I would caramelise four bananas so they each have a whole banana with their two pancakes.
Melt the coconut oil and maple syrup together in a frying pan on medium heat until bubbly. You can add cinnamon here if you would like.
Add your sliced bananas to the pan and spread out so each banana slice is laying in syrup. Leave for a minute to a minute and a half until the underside of the banana slices are golden brown.
Use a couple of forks to flip the banana slices and leave for a minute until that side is also golden brown.
Stack up your pancakes, add your bananas to the top along with any leftover syrup. I always like to add a bit of extra maple syrup on top as well.
