GF/DF/Vegan healthy pancake recipe

Happy Pancake Day!

I's the best day of the year and a foodies favourite time. I spent the entire weekend poorly at home so had numerous attempts at pancake testing and managed to come up with this amazing recipe! It contains no gluten, no dairy and is completely vegan! It's the first time I've managed to create a pancake recipe without eggs, which is super difficult, but these have turned out to be sweet, light and spongy.




I have added in the chia seeds because they are nutritious, a great source of omega-3 fatty acids and have a large amount of fibre in them. Plus because the chia seeds expand once then enter the stomach and absorb the water, they will also help you to feel fuller for longer. 




Bananas are also a great addition to this mixture. Not only do they help to bind all of the ingredients together and create s spongy texture, but they are also a great source of fibre, vitamin b6 to help you sleep well and magnesium to help to relax your muscles. 



To cook these I used Coconut oil and a tiny pan specifically bought for pancake needs. However, you can pour mixture into a large pan and cook a few little pancakes at the same time. But I have OCD and like all my pancakes to be exactly the same size and stackable! 



Ingredients.


  • 90 grams of Gluten Free Oats
  • 45 grams Gluten Free Flour
  • 2 teaspoons of baking powder
  • 1 ripe Banana - mashed
  • 3 tablespoons of Chia Seeds
  • 1 teaspoon of Vanilla Essence 
  • 240 ml Soy/Almond Milk
  1. Put the oats in a blender and blitz them until it forms a flour like consistency.
  2. Stir in the other ingredients - banana, chia seeds, flour, baking powder and soy milk. 
  3. Blend until it is a smooth but thick batter mix. 
  4. Leave for about 10 minutes in the fridge to thicken. 
  5. Melt coconut oil in a frying pan and pour in some mixture. This mixture makes approximately 6 little but thick pancakes. You should cook these on a medium/low heat, you dont want to burn them. 
  6. Flip them over when you can see the mixture start to bubble. 
  7. Cover with your selection of toppings and enjoy! 
Make sure you eat lots of pancakes!!
