These Banana Bread Pancakes are a straight 10/10. 

I have created these for Pancake Day 2020 BUT you can recreate and enjoy these at anytime!

They’re light, fluffy and totally delicious but still gluten-free, vegan and refined sugar free.

When making gluten-free pancakes without using egg they can become quite thick and clunky. But don’t worry I have found a way of making them light, airy and taste the real deal.

So here’s what you’re going to love about these Banana Pancakes:

  • Super easy
  • 6 ingredients
  • 15 Minutes
  • Delicious
  • Gluten-free, dairy-free and refined sugar-free 

Using these 6 ingredients you’ll probably have lying around in your kitchen:


And this pancake batter couldn’t be easier to make.

Literally adding the 6 simple ingredients to a mixing bowl and mix until smooth.

If you have kids, this is the perfect recipe to get them involved with. 

They will totally love mixing the batter and eating them of course!


To make these pancakes dairy-free and vegan I use almond milk.

Now it’s ready to mix.

Milk Pour

If you love chocolate, let’s be honest who doesn’t right?! 

Try adding in chocolate chunks into the mix before frying the pancakes.

Totally optional but it will take these Banana Bread Pancakes to the next level.


Here’s a little tip to always create the same size pancakes.

Use a mug measurement to pour your batter into the pan.

I used a 1/3 cup measurement for these to make sure they were a consistent size (see below).

Once baked the chocolate just oozes out when you cut into them.

So fluffy and totally worthy of pancake day!

You’re totally drooling right now aren’t you?

Golden, crispy around the edges and oozing flavour, these gluten-free Pancakes won’t last long. 

Banana Bread Pancakes - no maple

Being naturally sweetened with the banana’s and maple syrup meaning no white caster sugar is used.

Who can resist an extra drizzle of maple syrup over the top before serving.

    These are incredible! Tastes like the classic pancakes, but fresher, healthier, and easier to make. I made these 2 days in a row for breakfast after first finding this recipe and wish I had this recipe for years prior. Definitely going to be a dish I will make for years to come.

  2. Just curious, if I were to make these into a mini muffin style at what temp and how long should I bake them for?

  3. Made these for breakfast but with raisins instead of chocolate – yummy!!!! Will be making them regularly

    Family favourite! My toddler has egg and dairy allergies which can make breakfast treats more difficult. These pancakes are delicious and easy to make, so easy a toddler can get involved!
