Whole wheat banana pancake – Vegan version

Vegan Whole wheat banana pancake

Last night, I was thinking about what to cook for dinner and I was not in a mood to elaborate cooking. I wanted something instant like dosa, but unfortunately I don’t have any dosa or idly batter at hand and I want whole wheat as the main ingredient. Idea of making pancakes came to my mind as my daughter loves them.

I am following Vegan diet this month so was googling for ideas and found this recipe. I slightly changed it to add my own ingredients and flavor. Regular cow milk can be used instead of almond milk for non vegans.

This easy and quick recipe can be savoured any time of the day. Adding banana slices while griddling pancakes will give you caramelized toasted bananas which tastes yummy.

Serves 6 Pancakes


  • Banana – 2
  • Almond milk – 1¼ cups
  • Honey – 1 tbsp
  • Whole wheat flour – 1 cup
  • Unprocessed Wheat bran – 2 tbsp
  • Wheat germ – 2 tbsp
  • Ground flax seeds – 1 tbsp
  • Baking powder – 1 ½ tsp
  • Cardamom powder – ¼ tsp
  • Honey / Almond Butter /Maple syrup for serving


  • In a bowl, mash 1 banana, then stir in milk and honey.
  • In another bowl mix flour, wheat bran, wheat germ and baking powder. Add to wet ingredients from above mix and stir well to get smooth consistency.
  • Slice another banana into thin rounds as shown in picture below.
  • Heat non stick griddle on medium heat and pour small amounts of batter, followed by slices of banana on pancake.
