These vegan oatmeal chocolate chip pancakes are my favourite go-to recipe for after long weekend runs. They are so quick and easy to throw together that it's hard not to make them on a daily basis.
  • 1 very ripe medium banana
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 flax egg (1 Tbsp of ground flax seed + 2 Tbsp)
  • pinch salt
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 Tablespoon almond butter (or peanut butter!)
  • 1 Tablespoon coconut oil
  • 3 Tablespoons almond milk
  • ½ cup rolled oats (or gluten free oats)
  • ¼ cup whole wheat or unbleached flour (I use buckwheat flour to make them gluten free)
  • 3 Tablespoons semisweet chocolate chips (non-dairy for vegan or dairy allergy, I use Enjoy Life brand)
  1. Preheat a skillet to medium heat or about 300-325 degrees.
  2. Prepare flax egg by mixing flaxseed meal and water and letting set for 3-5 minutes.
  3. Mash your very ripe banana with baking powder.
  4. Add flax egg, oil, salt, vanilla, almond butter, almond milk and stir.
  5. Stir in oats and flour until just combined.
  6. Sprinkle in chocolate chips and fold gently.
  7. Scoop scant ¼ cup measurements onto lightly greased griddle.
  8. Cook for 2-4 minutes on each side - until golden brown.
  9. Serve plain or with a small drizzle of maple syrup.
