We love pancake Sunday at my house. Today it is time for these wonderful Chocolate Oat Pancakes With Caramelized Bananas (Vegan and Gluten free)
Chocolate and banana are a true and tested combo that we all love, well almost all. My son decided that he no longer likes bananas… But he liked these pancakes, without the caramelized bananas.
It is so nice to have a quiet Sunday morning without having to rush out the door. Also a great time to experiment in the kitchen with some new pancake recipes.
Even thought I am not vegan or gluten intolerant I love vegan food and experimenting with gluten free options. Just making the same recipes over and over again is not for me. Off course I have my trusted favorites, the recipes that always work. But it is so much fun to think up new ways of doing things when I have the time.
What about you, do you like to experiment in the kitchen?

These wonderful pancakes are a big hit at my house! Chocolate and banana is a true and tested combo that we all love and the caramelized bananas just takes these chocolate pancakes to the next level!
- 1 small banana, very ripe, mashed
- 3 tablespoon cocoa powder, unsweetened
- 2 tablespoon coconut sugar or light brown sugar
- 1 tablespoon coconut oil
- 1 cup almond milk
- 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
- 1 cup oat flour
- ½ cup almond flour
- 2 teaspoon baking powder
- pinch of salt
- 1 banana, sliced
- 1 teaspoon coconut oil
- 1 tablespoon maple syrup or honey
In a mixing bowl, mach the banana with a fork. Add the coconut oil, sugar and cocoa powder and stir until no lumps remain. Add the almond milk and apple cider vinegar and stir until combined.
Fold in the oat and almond flour, baking powder and a pinch of salt. Mix until just combined. Let rest while you heat a non stick pan over medium hight heat. Melt a little coconut oil and ladle a small amount of batter into the pan. Cook the pancakes until bubbles form on top. Flip and continue cooking until golden brown.
Keep the pancakes warm while you prepare the Caramelized Bananas
Whipe the pan and heat over medium hight heat. Add the coconut oil and maple syrup or honey, stir to combine. Add the banana slices, and fry for 2-3 minutes on each side, until golden brown and caramelized. Watch the heat and turn it down if the bananas browns too quickly, carfull so they do not burn.
Serve the pancakes with the bananas and a drizzle of honey or maple syrup.
