The whole-wheat flour will be a great source of dietary fiber and Vitamin B6 for you too.

Step by Step Instructions


Mix the whole-wheat flour, baking powder, and salt in a large bowl.


(If you’re putting bananas in the mix): Peel the banana and place in the same large bowl. Crush with a fork and mix in well (as per picture).


Add the almond/soy milk, maple syrup, olive oil, and vanilla extract to the same bowl and mix. Leave to rest for 5 min.


Heat 2 large frying pans (26-28cm in diameter should be enough) on medium heat, and add your grease of choice (we use about ½ tablespoon of vegan butter). If you are using a liquid oil, you can use 1 tablespoon per pan. If you don’t have 2 pans, use 1 large pan to fry 2 at a time.


Scoop ¼ of the mix as 1 pancake. And put 2 scoops in each pan. Cook for 3 min, or until small bubbles form on the surface and the surface no longer looks wet. Flip when most of the surface is not wet and cook the other side until golden brown.


Put on a plate, add toppings of your choice, and enjoy! We love to put a huge dollop of maple syrup, but you’ll find it’s already got some sweetness (if you’re strange like Ofer and prefer less sweet foods….)
