Sourdough Pancakes

By Lise-Anne Michel {Plum Planted}

Makes about 16 - 4" pancakes

Plant Based, Vegan, Oil-free, Refined Sugar-free


2 small bananas

6 T applesauce

2 c. plant based milk*

1 c. natural yeast (sourdough starter)**

12 small dates, pitted

1 t. vanilla 

2 c. ground whole wheat flour***

1 T. baking powder

1 t. salt


1. Combine bananas, applesauce, plant milk, natural yeast, dates, and vanilla in a high powered blender until smooth.

2. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder and salt.

3. Pour wet ingredients over dry ingredients and whisk together until well combined.

4. On an electric pancake grill preheated to 375 degrees, ladle pancake batter.  

5. Flip pancakes when they look lightly cooked around the outside edges and any bubbles that have formed start to pop.

6. Cook for approximately the same amount of time on the second side.

7. Remove pancakes from grill and seve.

*I use unsweetened almond milk.  Rice milk would work well for a nut-free alternative.

**If you don't have a sourdough starter, increase your plant milk and your flour to 3 cups each.

***I use hard white wheat, which I grind myself.
