About the Recipe

194 Calories · 5 g Protein · 2 g Fiber


Makes 4 Servings

  • flour (1 cup)
  • baking powder (1 tbsp.)
  • ground cinnamon (1/2 tsp.)
  • plain soy, almond, or other plant milk (1 cup)
  • pure maple syrup (2 tbsp.)
  • banana, sliced (1)
  • berries (1 cup)


  1. Whisk flour, baking powder, and cinnamon in a medium bowl until well combined. Stir in milk and maple syrup (can substitute applesauce or pumpkin puree). Let batter rest for 10 minutes.

  2. Meanwhile, heat a nonstick skillet. Check batter. If it's very thick and heavy, add more milk as needed to thin. Pour 1/4 cup of batter for each pancake. When bubbles appear, slide a spatula underneath and gently flip. Optional: Add banana slices or berry slices. Cook another 2-3 minutes.

  3. Serve pancakes with syrup, if desired. If you haven't already added the fruit to the batter, serve the fruit on top.
