Vegan Caramelized Banana Pancakes
Hello & Happy Saturday!!
Believe or not, I don’t do enough pancakes concepts. (shameful lol)
I’m pretty basic when it comes to breakfast and typically reach for avocado toast. However, there are those weekend brunches where I crave a hint of sweet and find myself reaching for a bite of pancakes! One of the best egg substutitues in pancakes and other various recipes is a banana. That being said, i wanted to create a staple vegan pancake that maximized the banana flavor..
and the vegan Caramelized Banana Walnut Pancakes were born!
If you love banana bread, this recipe will be your new bff!
One of my favorite concepts is actually caramelized bananas. It sounds fancy, but it’s really just bananas sliced, cooked on high heat, with a lil sugar! It enriches the banana flavor and they can be thrown on just about anything and everything, especially pancakes!
What’s fab about this recipe is, everything! It’s quick, easy, uses banana instead of egg, affordable, timeless, per for any season, has aesthetic appeal, perf for entertaining, and is non vegan approved!
If you’re searching for that staple vegan pancake recipe to add to your routine, this is it!
Why this recipe rocks:
Per for any season!
Packes flavor, texture, and aesthetic appeal!
