3 Ingredient Healthy Vegan Pancakes

If you’re still on a hunt for your favourite vegan breakfast recipe, even after trying out the hearty homemade vegan granola and the scrumptious banana bread, let me just tell you… This just might be THE one.

They take no time to whip up, taste delicious and leave you feeling full, satisfied and energised. They’re a super healthy alternative to the more traditional pancakes. I just love how filling they are, but don’t cause a “food coma”. They’ve been a weekend breakfast staple of ours. Bananas and oats are something we always have laying around, so it’s a great way to transform those into a great breakfast! (If you’re vegan or trying to eat more plant-based, stock up on oats and bananas – they’re incredibly versatile.)

These fluffy pancakes are oil free, vegan and can easily be made gluten free as well. How is it possible to make pancakes with 3 ingredients only, especially without eggs and milk? Great question!


Prep Time:  5 minutes

Cook Time: 15  minutes

Total Time: 20 minutes

Serves: 2-3

  • 3 cups oat flour (sub gluten free oats if gluten free)

*to make oat flour just process oats in a blender or a food processor 

  • 2 cup almond milk (or other plant-based milk of choice)
  • 2 spotty bananas (this ensures they’re ripe and sweet)
Optional add-ins:
  • 2 tbsp coconut sugar, raw sugar or 2 medjool dates, pitted
  • ¼ tsp vanilla bean powder or extract
  • ½ cup of: chocolate chips, blueberries, crushed nuts, etc.
  • Fresh fruit: bananas, blueberries, strawberries etc. (or frozen)
  • Maple syrup
  • Nut butters
  • Seeds or nuts
  • Desiccated coconut (lemme just drool)
1. Place oats into a high speed blender and process until a flour is reached.
2. Add in the remaining ingredients until a batter is formed.
3. Heat a non-stick pan on medium and pour ⅓ cup of batter, using a measuring cup to ensure equal size and cooking times. I also found it helpful to use a spoon to even out the batter in the pan. It’s also great if you own a smaller pan (just the size of the pancakes) as it helps them form more easily.
4. Allow the pancake to cook until bubbles appear around the edges, then flip and cook until golden.
5. Serve with toppings of choice and enjoy.

    1. Haha yeah that can be an issue! If you don’t have a non stick pan, maybe try using a tiny bit of coconut or olive oil cooking spray!
