Eggless Banana Pancakes

By Swasthi on August 27, 2022, Comments, Jump to Recipe

Eggless banana pancakes recipe – Soft, fluffy and delicious banana pancakes made without eggs. Indeed these pancakes are one of the healthiest I have ever tried so far. These make a great breakfast and can be made under 15 minutes. They can be served with any kind of your favorite toppings. This eggless banana pancakes recipe works well with plain flour and with whole wheat flour. I have used whole wheat pastry flour which gives the same texture as that of using half whole wheat and half plain flour.


Honey lemon syrup, Chocolate syrup & maple syrup with caramelized bananas & choco chips are some of the toppings that go very well for these pancakes.

I had few requests for some good eggless pancake recipes for toddlers & kids. I have tried many recipes without baking powder & soda, the results are just flat and dense.

They do not turn out fluffy or soft, the way pancakes are supposed to be and taste more like a banana dosa. Will share the recipe of banana dosa soon.

These pancakes can be served to toddlers occasionally and not often due to the addition of baking powder. I have used coconut milk in this recipe, since we follow the food compatibility rules and do not use fruit and milk together. You can also use plain water or any nut milk or organic soya milk.

How to Make Eggless Banana Pancakes

Prepare the Batter

1. These are the ingredients I have used in this recipe. I often get queries from readers asking about the brand or the kind of ingredients I used. So sharing this pic. You can use plain water or milk. To make the vegan milk, you can use either coconut or about 10 cashews. I used about 1/4 cup of frozen grated coconut, 3/4 cup water and extracted the milk by blending in a Mini blender.

2. Add flour, baking powder and salt to a bowl.

5. Add vanilla and oil or melted butter. I used virgin coconut oil.

6. Added the coconut milk by filtering it. Measure the milk and add it. You can also substitute with plain water.

7. Mix everything well. Break up any banana chunks.

8. Add half of the flour and mix. Add the other half and mix until just combined.

9. Very soon in few minutes, you will begin to see tinny bubbles. Baking powder begins to get activated. You will have to use up the batter right away for fluffy and well cooked pancakes. The consistency of the batter is thick but of pouring consistency like idli batter. You can check the next picture to get an idea of the right consistency. You can also add little more water or milk if needed.

10. Grease a pan with butter or oil. Wipe off excess. When it is hot enough, put on the flame to medium. Pour 1 ladle of batter. Do not spread it a lot, it spreads on its own if the consistency of batter is right. You will have to adjust the heat well otherwise they will brown too quickly without cooking inside.

11. Cover and cook for 1 to 2 minutes.

12. Add butter towards the edges.

13. When the base is set, flip it.

14. Cook until golden on a low heat. Make sure it is well cooked from inside. Set this aside and continue to make the rest. You will get about 4 pancakes.

15. These are the ingredients I used for topping.

16. Add 1 tsp of butter and place the sliced bananas on the hot pan. Cook until caramelized on one or both the sides. To make these make sure your banana is not very ripe. Just ripe and firm is good for this. Do not flip them too many times, they stick up to the pan.

Excellent recipe so far for an eggless version of pancakes!Can be simply made from scratch…Going to be my go to go recipe ..

5 stars
Very good recipe! So easy to follow and double. I love the step by step instructions and photos. I needed a pancake recipe without eggs and this was the perfect fit.

5 stars
The pancakes were soft and fluffy. I made two of them for my 9 month old baby without adding salt, sugar, baking powder and spices. I added coconut milk. I added them in the remaining batter and made for others. We all enjoyed it. Thank you, your recipes are always A hit!!

5 stars
I never leave comments or ratings on recipe websites, but these banana pancakes were phenomenal, so I had to express my appreciation. I particularly loved the caramelized taste from the slow-and-low cooking you recommended. Thank you!

This is a great recipe! The pancakes came out exactly as fluffy as the ones I had made the other day using eggs, and the banana made them naturally sweeter, while being totally undetectable (my banana-hating husband couldn’t taste it – yes, there are people who genuinely dislike bananas). Added the caramelised bananas for me & kids, and it was a triumph. Will definitely make again!

5 stars
They came out fluffy and delicious. Really easy to make.

You literally just saved our breakfast with this recipe! We ran out of eggs. I was fretting because I have a hungry grumpy 9month old on my hands. To say she loved them is an understatement ☺️. Dad loves them(he doesn’t stray from eating toast, bacon and eggs much) and I have just added a new recipe to my arsenal. Thanks for sharing!

Still love this recipe and make it about 1-2x a month. We are out of bananas and I’m wondering if you’ve ever subbed applesauce for the bananas in this recipe? Thanks!

5 stars
Great fluffy pancakes. I used oil.

You mentioned that toddlers should only eat these occasionally due to addition of baking powder – this is the first time I’ve heard of this. Is too much baking powder bad for kids?

5 stars
Simply superb. Very easy to prepare and very tasty.
