Vegan Banana & Cacao Pancakes

For all pancake lovers. This vegan banana and cacao pancakes are a must-try. They are simply to make, healthy and delicious.

Pancakes are one of my favorite things, but I don’t make them very often. This recipe had been on my mind for a while and I had many cravings to do it.

For the pancake mix, I used Bob’s Red MillGluten Free Pancake Mix but you can just use normal flour.

This recipe is ideal for a weekend and it’s enough for around 6-7 pancakes. So you can adjust the recipe if you need to cook for more people.

Finally, here it is the recipe so you can surprise your family or friends!

Vegan Banana & Cacao Pancakes Recipe


  • 1 very ripe medium banana mashed
  • 1-1/2 cup of pancake mix (or use flour + 1 1/2 tsp of baking powder)
  • 1 cup unsweetened plant-based milk (I used almond milk)
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened cacao powder
  • 1 tbsp of chia seeds (or flaxseed) + 3 tbsp water
  • 2 tbsp. Earth Balance butter or coconut oil
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup (optional) 
  • 1 tsp powdered cinnamon


  • Mix the dry ingredients in a bowl (flour, cacao, cinnamon).
  • Separately, mix the chia or flax seeds with the water and let sit around 5 to 10 minutes.
  • Add the milk slowly to the dry ingredients and stir until everything is integrated. Then combine the rest of the ingredients: banana, chia and maple syrup and mix well. If the mixture is too dry add a little more milk and if it’s very liquid add a little flour.
  • Heat some of the butter or oil in a skillet over low to medium heat and pour the portion you wish for your pancake. When you begin to see the bubbles and look a little dry flip it and let it cook on the other side.
  • Once ready serve with your favorite toppings such as fruit, peanut or almond butter, maple syrup, etc.
  • Sit back and enjoy it!
