Blender Banana Pancakes With Chocolate Sauce

There's nothing like pancakes to start off the day. Though my mother was big on breakfast when we were young and would wake up at unearthly hours to prepare breakfast for us (our schools start at 7.20 in the morning!), after I got married and moved to my own place, we hardly ate breakfast. It was mostly brunch at the best, or we would skip straight to a scrumptious and heavy lunch. 

This particular time, we had some bananas that were starting to spot. I decided to make some banana pancakes and was too lazy to whisk it manually. I decided to blitz in the blender and it came out perfect!

Blender Banana Pancakes with Chocolate Sauce

For Pancakes

4 medium size very ripe bananas 
140g plain flour
2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoon unrefined sugar
210ml water/soymilk
3 tablespoon soy milk powder (if you are using soymilk, you can omit these - I didn't have any)
2 tablespoon canola oil

For Chocolate Sauce

70g non dairy chocolate
50ml water/soy milk (I just used water)
1 teaspoon maple syrup (optional)


1) For pancakes, dump all ingredients into the blender and blitz until smooth.
2) In a non-stick pan, grease it with some margarine (optional - I didn't). Pour spoonfuls of batter to make desired sizes. I put about 2 -3 tablespoons a pancake. 
3) Cook over medium heat until bubbles start to appear. Gently insert spatula to release the pancake from the pan and flip. 
4) Cook for another 2 minutes or so until its golden brown on both sides
5) For chocolate sauce, heat the water/soymilk in a pan. When it is simmering hot, remove from heat and stir in the chocolate. Stir until it melts. Add maple syrup.
6) Pour choc sauce on pancakes and dig in.

Completely Drenched!


  1. Very nice pics! I note this new recipe too. Vegan pancakes sometimes don't really look like usual pancakes or use egg-replacer. Your recipe looks like a real success, and without egg-replacer. That's very interesting. First, we need to buy a good pan and then we will try these pancakes as well as the Prata. There are so many good recipes in your blog and so few days to cook...

  2. These look lovely! I shall have to give them a try on the weekend!
