dairy free eggless pancakes-cover

I leaped out of bed one Saturday morning with a deep craving for pancakes. I took a quick look around, and seeing the hubby and kids still fast asleep, tiptoed to the kitchen, excited to get a head start on breakfast.

I opened the fridge door eagerly, mentally ticking off the ingredients I would need.

“Brown sugar, salt, vanilla,” I mumbled softly. I opened the fridge door wider.


I stopped cold. I had neither eggs nor milk. What?!

My stomach was rumbling. I fumbled through my other pancake recipes, scribbled on various scraps of paper, hoping for a way to still make the pancakes I so craved without using either milk or eggs.

I’m happy to say I developed this recipe which not only works, but the family can’t even tell the difference. Phew!


  • Servings: 4-6
  • Difficulty: easy
  • Print


  • 3 cups whole wheat flour
  • 4 tsp baking powder
  • 3 Tbsp brown sugar
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 2 Tbsp canola oil
  • 4 tsp vanilla extract
  • 3 cups water
  • 1/2-1 cup overripe banana


  1. Combine dry ingredients in a large bowl.
  2. In a separate bowl, mash banana, and whisk in oil and vanilla.
  3. Pour wet ingredients into dry ingredients, stirring carefully with a large spoon.
  4. Slowly add water one cup at a time, until all ingredients are incorporated.
  5. Mix well until there are hardly any lumps remaining.
  6. Grease a non-stick griddle or pan and pour batter in 1/2 cupfuls. Heat until bubbles form in the center, flip, and brown other side.
  7. Drizzle with syrup or honey if desired. Makes about 12-16 pancakes.


  1. We love pancakes in our nest…we never use eggs (too expensive and we eat too many of them). I usually have canned coconut milk on the shelf if we run out of refrigerated milk but have also squeezed oranges into the mix and even chai tea…the later has been my favorite! Happy creating!
