1-Bowl Vegan Banana Oat Pancakes

These 1-bowl vegan banana oat pancakes are easy to make but also delicious and wholesome. Here’s a simple recipe for a quick and healthy breakfast:


  • One ripe banana, mashed
  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 3/4 cup plant-based milk (such as almond, soy, or oat milk)
  • One tablespoon of ground flaxseeds or chia seeds
  • One tablespoon of maple syrup or another sweetener of your choice
  • One teaspoon of baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • A pinch of salt
  • Cooking spray or a little oil for the pan

Optional Add-ins:

  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup chopped nuts (such as walnuts or pecans)
  • Fresh berries for topping


Prepare Flax or Chia Egg:

In a small bowl, mix the ground flaxseeds or chia seeds with 2.5 tablespoons of water. Let it sit for 5 minutes to form a gel-like consistency, creating a vegan egg substitute.

Mash the Banana:

In a large mixing bowl, mash the ripe banana using a fork until smooth.

Add Wet Ingredients:

To the mashed banana, add the plant-based milk, flax or chia egg, maple syrup, and vanilla extract. Mix well.

Add Dry Ingredients:

Add the rolled oats, baking powder, and a pinch of salt to the wet ingredients. If desired, add ground cinnamon and chopped nuts. Mix until just combined. Allow the batter to rest for a couple of minutes to let the oats absorb some of the liquid.

Heat the Pan:

Heat a non-stick skillet or griddle over medium heat. Lightly grease it with cooking spray or a small amount of oil.

Cook the Pancakes:

Scoop 1/4 cup portions of batter onto the heated skillet. Spread the batter slightly to form a round shape. Cook until bubbles form on the surface, then flip and cook the other side until golden brown.


Once cooked, transfer the pancakes to a plate. Repeat the process with the remaining batter.

Top and Enjoy:

Serve the pancakes warm, topped with fresh berries, maple syrup, or any other toppings of your choice.

These vegan banana oat pancakes are not only tasty but also packed with fiber and nutrients. Feel free to customize the recipe with your favorite add-ins or toppings.
