Nourishing Vegan Banana Pancakes 

Breakfast

These vegan banana pancakes are hearty, nourishing and packed with omegas!

I’m always amazed at what vegans use as an egg substitute. 

For example, this recipe uses a flax egg 

(1 TBS of freshly ground flax seeds or flax seed meal + 3 TBS of water and let the mixture sit for 15 minutes)

Flax eggs = most successful egg substitute

Also, they are high in omega 3 fatty acids (good fat), dietary fiber, and lignans.

I am heavily inspired by @aspoonfulofnature’s beautiful blog and even more beautiful creations! I really like that she keeps her posts short and sweet, no fluff, and straight to the point with clear, simple directions and gorgeous professional photos.

This was so fun to make; cooking the strawberries reminded me of my grandma when she used to make this strawberry sauce for pancakes… hm…

And all I could think about was toast, so I put a slice of my favorite Ezekiel Sesame bread in the toaster and voila!
Nom  nom  nom.
