BANANA PANCAKES no refined sugars

BANANA PANCAKES no refined sugars

How to make some easy and quick vegan pancakes, but without sacrificing the taste?

  • Uses a good vegetable milk, my favorite is the vanilla flavored soy milk (brand Alpro in Italy).
  • Use a fruit (not watery), adding fruit is always good and gives flavor, moreover bananas are excellent substitutes for eggs to give structure to cakes.
  • Do not give up the sugary part if you use a good sweetener. I chose INTEGRAL cane sugar / BROWN SUGAR (not to be confused with the beige-colored raw cane sugar): it doesn’t undergo chemical refining such as white and raw cane sugar, it is a dark brown sugar, with a moist consistency and floury and small grains. Being made up of molasses, it has a particular and intense smell and taste, which can recall caramel and licorice. In cakes it retains moisture so it makes the products more humid and softer. For these reasons I chose it for my pancakes.
  • Add extra flavorings, such as vanilla or citrus peel.
  • You can also add seeds, walnuts or almonds for a bit of crunchiness.

INGREDIENTS FOR 10 PANCAKES:

  • 135 g banana (1 big);
  • 25 g brown sugar = INTEGRAL cane sugar;
  • 250 g vanilla soy milk;
  • 25 g coconut oil;
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla paste;
  • 200 g all purpose flour;
  • 1/2 tsp bicarbonate soda;
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder.

 

METHOD:

1 – In a bowl, press the banana with a fork until it is pureed, add the sugar, milk, coconut oil, vanilla and mix with a whisk. Add the powders previously sieved together and mix.
2 – Heat a non-stick pan and melt a little coconut oil or Dairy free butter.
3 – With an ice cream scoop, or a ladle, pour a ladle of mixture into the pan. When bubbles start to appear on the surface, turn it on the other side with a spatula, then wait a couple of minutes until it’s browned. It will take a total of 4/5 min depending on the size of your pancakes.
4 – Serve warm and sprinkled with icing sugar or maple syrup or whatever you prefer!!
