Vegan pancakes with cacao nibs

Vegan pancakes with cacao nibs

“Banana flour is gluten free by the way and has a bit of a nut-like flavor.”

Vegan pancakes with cacao nibs made from banana flour. That doesn’t make these pancakes just vegan, but also gluten free!

I like making new recipes so much, trying them and finding even more new inspiration. When it comes to that you can certainly say that healthy food is my passion. I would love to be working on it every minute of the day. And that is of course also the reason that I started my blog to inspire you to also eat more healthy, but also to vary with your nutrition.

I notice that I also have difficulty in varying every now and then, that is why I am always looking for more inspiration and ideas to vary even more. This weekend I watched a ‘what I eat in a day video’ of a top model and that also gave me quite some inspiration for an oatmeal porridge as I had never tried it that way before. And since a short while i am also following Deliciously Ella. She only shares plant based recipes, but all of them are so tasty. And when I saw how easy it is to make vegan pancakes I decided to try it for myself.

And that turned out really good with these banana flour pancakes. Banana flour is gluten free by the way and it has a nut-like flavor. So it has nothing to do with bananas as you might expect.


Preparation time: 5 minutes
Baking time:            Approximately 5 minutes per pancake
Amount:                    5 pancakes

Special Products:

  • Mixing bowl
  • Frying pan
  • Ladle
  • Spatula


  • 250 milliliters coconut milk
  • 1 tea spoon chia seed
  • 75 grams banana flour
  • 25 grams gluten free oatmeal
  • 50 milliliters maple syrup
  • 50 grams cacao nibs

How to make it?

Put the coconut milk in a mixing bowl. Add the chia seed, banana flour, oatmeal and the maple syrup to it.

Mix carefully and let it stand for a few minutes to make sure it becomes a firm mixture.

You will notice the mixture becoming more firm.

At last add the cacao nibs and mix again.

Heat some coconut oil in a frying pan. use half a ladle of batter and divide over the pan. Because the mixture is quite thick the pancakes will also become more thick so don’t use too much batter.

Bake approximately 3-4 minutes on one side. When the edges turn brown carefully flip and bake for another minute or two on the other side.

Optionally you can decorate the pancakes with some extra cacao nibs.
