Whole Wheat Banana Pancakes (Eggless)

"Whole Wheat Banana Pancakes" is an easy to make healthy and delicious pancake recipe which you can have in breakfast. These pancakes are so soft & fluffy in texture with goodness of whole wheat, bananas and milk. As this recipe does not use eggs, it is a 'must' try for all those vegetarian people who are constantly searching for eggless pancakes recipe.

I had made multiple attempts before coming up with this bang on pancake recipe.The ingredients used in making these pancakes are very basic and easily available in kitchen pantry. They are really quick and easy to prepare which makes them a perfect choice for Kid's tiffin and Breakfast.

This Eggless Pancake recipe is tasty & nutritious. Bananas are good source of vitamin C, vitamin B6  fibre and potassium; & Milk is rich in calcium, vitamin D and vitamin B12 etc. The goodness of bananas and milk when combined with whole wheat flour make them an ideal choice for kick starting your day. As per various health journals and articles, breakfast must never be skipped in the morning as it slows down the metabolism rate making you feel weak, dizzy or bloated for the entire day.

Other Banana recipes shared on this blog are - Vegan Banana Ice Cream, Banoffee Pie, Banana Oats Muffin, Banana Bread, Strawberry Banana Smoothie.

My efforts have been towards making this recipe as healthy as possible without compromising on the texture and taste of the pancakes. I have used brown sugar and ripe banana puree for the sweetness. More the bananas are ripe more they will be sweeter, hence adding natural sweetness to the pancakes.  Hope you all will like this recipe!!



List Of Ingredients:

  • Whole wheat flour - 1 cup
  • Salt-A pinch
  • Brown Sugar-3 tbsp
  • Baking Powder-1/2 tsp
  • Baking Soda-1/4 tsp
  • Milk-1 cup
  • Banana Puree-1cup (~ roughly 2 bananas)
  • Vanilla essence- 1/2 tsp (optional)
  • Melted unsalted butter- 1 tbsp
For cooking:
  • Unsalted Butter -1 tbsp
For garnishing:
  • Banana -1
  • Honey/Chocolate Sauce- 2tbsp

Steps To Prepare:


Step1:
Whisk together all the wet ingredients i.e. milk, banana puree and vanilla essence using a whisker or hand blender.
Step2:
Take whole wheat flour in a mixing bowl. Add salt, brown sugar, baking soda & baking powder to it. Mix well.
Step3:
Place a heavy bottomed or non stick pan on low flame so that it is ready by the time we prepare the pancake batter. I am using Hawkins Futura Non stick Dosa Tawa (33 cm) here. I  would recommend this tawa as its base is heavy and also good for making dosas & cheelas.
Step4:
Mix well all the ingredients of step1 and step2 gradually using a whisker till you a get a smooth batter. Make sure there are no lumps left and sugar is dissolved completely. Towards the end add 1 Tbsp melted unsalted butter & mix once again
Step5:
Brush some unsalted butter on the pan. You can use measuring cups or ice cream scooper to spread the batter on pan. This will ensure that all pancakes are of uniform size.
One of the important things to take care is to cook the pancakes on LOW flame. I keep the flame on low for the entire time.
(After 1-2 minutes)
Once small holes appear on the pancakes, flip it. Let it cook from other side for 1-2 minutes. Repeat till you get golden brown colour on both sides.
Garnish the pancakes with few banana pieces and drizzle some honey or chocolate sauce. You can also use maple syrup or chocochips!! Enjoy these soft and fluffy whole wheat banana pancakes  :)
