Zero Waste Vegan Choc-Chip Pancakes

I don’t know about you, but I LOVE pancakes. However, I keep running into two major problems. 

  1. All the pancake mixes I find seem to be in boxes…in plastic bags within them 
  2. Eggs and milk are often used 

And as easy as it is to just replace the dairy and eggs in the pancakes, I’d rather just have a recipe that didn’t call for them at all. Not to mention, having a pancake mix free of plastic and cardboard waste would be RAD. 

So, here you are! I’ve come up with a base recipe that you can add ingredients to (such as blueberries) for yourself! 

Zero Waste Vegan Pancakes

  • 1 cup + 2 TBLS non-dairy milk
  • 1 Cup Flour 
  • 2 tsp agave* optional for a sweeter pancake
  • 1 large over-ripe banana (almost fully black in color)
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla extract
  • 3 TBLS organic canola oil
  • Coconut oil to cook with 
  1. Smash banana into a thick paste and add agave (if using), non-dairy milk, and vanilla. Mix well 
  2. Add flour and mix 
  3. Add 1/2 C of the mix-in of your choice (chocolate chips, fruit, nuts) 
  4. Heat pan over medium heat and add a bit of coconut oil.
  5. Cook the pancakes on one side till you can see a golden brown outline around the edges then flip once and cook the other side through
  6. Serve and enjoy! 

P.S. The Lucky’s Market on Manchester in St. Louis, Missouri has bulk vegan mini chocolate chips
