Vegan Chai Spice Buckwheat Pancakes

As I've mentioned in a previous post I'm a huge fan of the warming combination of masala chai spices so I thought what better way to experiment with it than to use it in pancakes? I use these spices in my carrot cake buckwheat pancakes but this particular recipe is perfect for when you just can't be bothered messing around with grating carrots, you don't actually have any carrots, or you just want a simple stack of fluffy, filling and comforting pancakes to devour.

Makes 6 - 7 small pancakes 
  • 2 flax eggs (2 tbsp ground flaxseed and 6 tbsp water)
  • 1/2 cup buckwheat flour 
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp ginger
  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg
  • 1 ripe banana
  • 1/2 cup non-dairy milk of choice 
  • Oil of choice (I use coconut) for cooking


The first thing you need to do is make the flax eggs; to do this mix the ground flaxseed and water together in a cup and leave it in the fridge for at least 30 minutes to thicken up. 

When your flax eggs are ready you can begin making your pancakes. Sift the flour, baking powder and spices into a bowl and stir them all together. Mash your banana into a pulp (you can leave out a few slices for decoration if you want) then add it into the bowl along with the non-dairy milk and flax eggs. Mix all the ingredients well until everything is incorporated.

Heat your oil of choice in a frying pan over a medium heat; I have a non-stick frying pan so I only have to use a tiny amount of oil but you may need to use more if you don't have one. When the oil has heated up pour about 1/4 cup of the batter into the centre of the pan and spread it out slightly with a spoon, forming a pancake shape. Let it cook for a minute or two, until bubbles start forming on the top, then flip it over and cook it for another minute or so. Repeat with the rest of the mixture, add any toppings you desire and enjoy!
