Let’s face it, most of us love pancake day, but for those of us needing to go dairy free, going to a pancake restaurant can be a bit of a fiasco. Buttermilk pancakes seem to be the order of the day at such places, and finding a dairy free option can be very difficult.

However, this year I’ll be sharing a couple of super yummy and dairy free pancake options for you to make at home:

  1. Blueberry Oat
  2. Peanut Butter and Banana

Blueberry Oat Pancakes

What you’ll need:

  • a medium sized frying pan
  • a spatula
  • some coconut oil (or oil of your choice) to grease your pan with (I recommend spraying oil as it spreads more easily)
  • 50g oats
  • 50g blueberries
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 bananas (mashed)

Dairy Free Blueberry Oat Pancakes

Method:

Mash your bananas until smooth, and combine them with the eggs. Pour in the oats and stir the mixture well until your oats are fully coated. Add in your vanilla extract and blueberries, and give the mixture another stir.

Set your pan on the hob and turn the heat up to a medium. Spray your pan with the coconut oil and wait for it to melt. Now pour in a palm size of mixture into your pan and let it fry for a couple of minutes. Flip it over and fry it a little longer on the other side, until golden brown.

Once you’ve repeated the above and used up all your mixture, you can top your pancake stack with whatever you like. In the example below, I made a strawberry compote and fried turkey bacon to go with it. Drizzle with sugar free maple syrup by Myprotein and voila!

The above makes enough for one person.

Peanut Butter and Banana Pancakes

The second dairy free pancake option I would love to share with you today is a peanut butter and banana variety. This one is probably easier to make than the above, as the ingredients blend into a smooth pancake mix.

You’ll need:

  • a medium sized frying pan
  • a spatula
  • some coconut oil (or oil of your choice) to grease your pan with (I recommend spraying oil as it spreads more easily)
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 banana
  • 1 heaped tbsp. peanut butter

Method:

Cut your banana into smaller chunks and put all your ingredients (i.e. banana, eggs, peanut butter) into a blender. Blend until the mixture is smooth.

Heat your frying pan with some coconut oil on a medium heat and wait until the oil has melted in the pan. Add a small, palm size amount of pancake mix to the pan and fry until the mixture begins to rise a little (or until the bottom is easily movable and golden-brown). Flip the pancake and fry it on the other side for a little while longer.

Once you have used up all your mix, top your stack with more bananas, peanut butter and sugar free Myprotein maple syrup, and enjoy.

The above makes enough for one person.

I hope you enjoy the above recipes, if you have any feedback, leave it in the comments!
