Vegan Fluffy Banana Pancakes

 

The weekend calls for pancakes!

Whats a better way to wake up on Sunday morning to the smell of freshly made banana pancakes! These are the fluffiest and tastiest banana pancakes I have ever made, whilst still being healthy! You can whip them up in only 10 min and decorate them with whatever you like. I love them simple with slices of fresh banana, crushed pecans for a little crunch and a drizzle of maple syrup – yum!

 

Ingredients

  • 1 large banana
  • 2 tbsp agave syrup
  • 150 grams wheat flour
  • 170 ml almond milk
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil + extra for frying
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp vanilla powder
  • 1/2 tbsp baking powder
  • Pinch of salt

Toppings:

  • Maple syrup
  • Pecans
  • Sliced banana

 

Method

  1. In a large bowl mix together the flour, cinnamon, vanilla powder, baking powder and salt.
  2. In a separate small bowl mash the banana and coconut oil together.
  3. Pour the smooth banana mixture into the large bowl and mix with the dry ingredients.
  4. Then add the agave syrup and almond milk and mix well until a smooth and thick mixture forms.
  5. Heat up a nonstick pan with a little coconut oil and pour in some of your pancake batter to form your first pancake! Fry them on each side until golden brown and make sure they had enough time to cook all the way through.
  6. Once they are ready serve your pancakes with some crushed pecans and sliced bananas and finish off by drizzling over some maple syrup!

Favourite smoothie bowls at Bali Bowls

 

If you get as excited for breakfast as I do then you have to go to one of my favourite places to enjoy a healthy and delicious breakfast. This place will make even your Monday mornings feel like a Saturday!

Bali Bowls is a cute cafe close to the beach. The bright white and green colours create a fresh atmosphere. You can hang in the relaxing chairs outside underneath the parasols or you can make your way upstairs and enjoy the view.

Its a relaxing place with a great atmosphere. Music is playing in the background, green plants and the bamboo surroundings create a tropical feeling. Everything about this place makes you feel comfortable and happy!

 

 

When looking at the menu you notice that there are such delicious and vibrant dishes. From ‘Unicorn toast’ (45k Idr/2.30 pounds), to ‘Banana oat pancakes’ (35k Idr/1.80 pounds) and of course the most amazing smoothie bowls. As you might be wondering what on earth ‘Unicorn toast’ is il just explain that its the most special piece of toast you will ever have. This toast is topped with rainbow yoghurt spread, strawberry, melon and homemade coconut sprinkles – told you it was crazy! But oh my its delicious!

Whats also amazing from this menu is that you can mix and match lots of dishes. Create your own toast by choosing a base and a topping such as beetroot hummus or peanut butter with broccoli, flax seeds, mango etc. There are endless options and you can make your toast as sweet or healthy as you want!

My favourite smoothie bowls are called ‘Green giant’ and ‘Banana-Cado’ (75k Idr/4.10 pounds) The ‘Green giant’ is an amazing green smoothie bowl that is still sweet and fruity while you are still getting all your greens in! Its a mix of spinach, kale, mango, banana, lime, turmeric, granola, coconut flakes and soya milk. Its smooth, refreshing and delicious! The ‘Banana-Cado’ smoothie bowl is a little more comforting as it has a more nutty and sweet flavour – which I love! The ingredients are banana, avocado, oats, peanut butter, dates, gojiberry, chia seeds, granola and oat milk.

 

 

They also serve coffee, smoothies, juices, buddha bowls, poke bowls, Nusa bowls and chia pods – which are my fave! Chia pods are full of protein and they are extremely refreshing as they are topped with delicious fresh fruit. They also make the pods fresh so you can choose what kind of milk you would like the to have such as almond milk, soya milk or coconut milk.

 

 

I love going to Bali Bowls when I crave a delicious and tropical breakfast and I definitely recommend you to go check it out! Honestly, go for a smoothie bowl and you’ll fall in love!

 

 

Bali bowls is located on Jalan Segara Perancak, Canggu,  Bali.

They are open from 7.30am until 10.30pm, so you can enjoy the most delicious meal at any time of the day! Enjoy!
