These banana bread pancakes should be the only thing getting you out of bed this morning

Brekkie sorted!

Denise Curtin

Easy like a Sunday morning.

It’s Sunday, well done for making it here.

As a little reward for battling it through another week, I present you with the best brekkie ever.

Perfect for a lazy day like today when your only plan should be to self-indulge, stay in your pyjamas and binge-watch telly.


I give you banana bread pancakes with chocolate chips and maple syrup.


  • 1 very ripe banana and a few slices for garnish
  • 3/4 cup unsweetened plant-based milk e.g. rice milk
  • 1 teaspoon maple syrup (and more for drizzling on top)
  • 1 teaspoon coconut oil
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 tablespoon crushed hazelnut (more for garnish)
  • 1/4 cup chocolate chunks or chocolate chips

From the Elephantastic Vegan, this recipe is so simple to follow (with step-by-step pictures) and you can check it out here.

We expect pics so do tweet us @herdotie and try not to burn the kitchen down, we know it’s still early.
