In addition to my recent pizza craze, I also have been going through a need for pancakes. Which means when deciding what to make from my assigned blog, Without Adornment, this month for Secret Recipe Club, I was sucked into the Vegan Banana Almond Flour Pancakes. I took out the vegan adjective in my post only because I am not sure my changes maintain it. I think they are still vegan but who knows, maybe almond milk and nonstick spray somehow are not. Either way, they are still satisfying.
What prompted me to attempt baking these was the fact that I had problems with them super-sticking to the pan when cooking the traditional way for pancakes. I have been known to bake pancakes in the past and they have always been a success so I was very pleased when this recipe also cooperated. They turned out to have slightly crispy edges with moist, but not under-done, centers. And the flavors of almond and banana together were a big hit for my taste buds.
These pancakes are also pretty filling and could serve two people. Or one really hungry person (like me).
Also from Without Adornment, I would love to try the Strawberry Cheesecake Raw Vegan Cake Pops.
BAKED BANANA ALMOND PANCAKES
1 banana, sliced
1 tsp egg replacer with 1 Tbsp + 1 tsp almond milk, mixed until frothy
2 Tbsp water
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 cup almond flour
1/4 tsp baking soda
1 Tbsp tapioca starch
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Coat 4 holes in a muffin-top pan with non-stick cooking spray, set aside.
- In a blender (I used my magic bullet), mix together the banana, egg replacer, water and vanilla extract for about a minute until well mixed.
- Add the dry ingredients and blend until well mixed.
- Divide batter equally into the four pre-greased muffin top pan holes. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until the tops begin to turn golden brown and middles are set. Allow to cool slightly before removing carefully from pan.
- Top with fruit and enjoy.

oh yum! i’ve never heard of baked pancakes but i love the idea – will have to try ’em soon!
I love pancakes but it’s been so long since I’ve made them! I blame boyfriend and his love of starbucks on the weekends… I’ll have to break open the almond flour and give these a try. I might use regular milk though (def not vegan!) because I don’t drink a lot of almond milk!
i’d never have thought to bake pancakes. bloody brilliant :)
Baking pancakes? What a wonderful idea! I’ve never thought of that before, although my husband is the chief pancake maker in our house. I’ll have to suggest that to him because then maybe we could all sit down together and eat pancakes instead of doing it in shifts. Gorgeous photo (as always) and great recipe!
I LOVE this idea, my kids would love them as well! Great SRC post!
I love the idea of baking the pancakes…kinda like a pancake cookie.
And as a vegan myself…I can assure you that these are in fact vegan. Almond milk is one of the best vegan milks!
Looks so good… and the combination sounds great!
I wonder if this recipe would work with coconut flour? I love the almond flour idea, too.
I love that you baked these and that they turned out well! I know I had some issues with the centre not completely setting, so baking them is the perfect solution! :)
Baked pancake sounds interesting! Bananas are one of my favourite fruits to bake with – this looks delicious!
I’m visiting from Group D, and love what you did this month! A little bit of brilliance to bake them! Beautiful AND delicious, I’m sure!
I need to get my hands on some almond flour. I’ve wanted to try cooking/baking with it forever, but I’m always too cheap to splurge when I see it. These pancakes sound delish!
Those look so incredible! I love banana pancakes :) I love even more that you topped them with strawberry and pineapple!
Great pic for SRC! I’ve never thought to bake pancakes. Love the idea since you can do a bunch at once. Usually I’m standing at the stove making them while others are enjoying! The pictures are wonderful too!
ok I never thought of BAKING pancakes, but this is genius! I hate standing over the stove and making them one by one. I will definitely try this in my whoopie pie pan!
I’ve also used my doughnut pants before :-)
Doughnut pants?! Get me some of those. ;)
