Bananas are one of the most commonly wasted foods in the UK, which is a shame considering they make a great binder for vegan baking. These Vegan Banana Pancakes by Norwegian blogger Mari Hult are great for using up spotted bananas, and will give you a syroupsly tasty start to your day. 


  • 2 ripe bananas
  • 2 tablespoons of rapeseed oil
  • 1 dl soy-milk, or other non-dairy milk
  • 1 dl water
  • 2 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon of maple syrup, or other sweetener such as agave syrup
  • 2.5 dl wheat flour
  • 2.5 teaspoons of baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon of salt
  • cinnamon (optional)
  • Vegan margarine or oil for frying


  1. Mash your bananas in a bowl using a fork.
  2. Add oil, milk, water, vinegar and syrup, and mix well. Let the batter rest for a couple of minutes. 
  3. Measure up the flour, baking powder, salt and cinnamon, and sieve into the mix. 
  4. Mix to a lump-free batter. 
  5. Heat a frying pan over medium heat. Add the dairy-free margarine or oil. 
  6. Use about 1 dl of batter for each pancake. They should be quite thick. 
  7. Fry on one side until you can see the edges sticking, about 3 minutes. 
  8. Flip and fry for about 1 minute on the other side. 
  9. Serve hot with jam, honey or sugar.
