You don’t have to be vegan to enjoy this indulgent dish – these fluffy banana pancakes are lightly spiced with cinnamon and served with a strawberry compote and melted dark chocolate. The yoghurt is optional but adds a creamy element to the pancakes which marries well with the strawberry compote. You will most definitely score some brownie points if you deliver these as breakfast in bed!

Strawberry Chocolate Pancakes - vegan recipe


1. Preheat the oven to 150C. Sir the mashed banana and oil together before adding the flour, cinnamon and baking powder. Whisk in the milk a little at a time until you have a consistency that will drop off a spoon. You may need to add a dash of milk if it’s too thick.

2. Heat a drizzle of oil in the frying pan and once it’s hot add around two tablespoons of batter for each pancake. Fry them for 2-3 minutes on each side or until golden then place in the oven under tinfoil while you make the rest.

3. Meanwhile melt your chocolate and heat the frozen strawberries in a small saucepan over a medium heat. Let the strawberries get soft and lightly mash them with a fork – leave some chunks of strawberry in there though.

4. Once your pancakes are cooked, serve with the strawberry compote, a drizzle of dark chocolate and a spoonful of yoghurt. Scatter a few fresh strawberries across the plate or dip a couple whole into the melted chocolate for an extra treat!
