Eggless Whole Wheat Pancakes- How to go about them?
Pancakes depend on plain flour and eggs for their light and texture. So how will they work with wheat flour and without eggs? The texture of a pancake made with whole wheat flour is certainly denser than that of pancakes.
Having said that, we can still make soft and fluffy pancakes with wheat flour and without eggs by adjusting the liquid proportions and the fat content.
Ingredients- Substitutes and Replacements
➺ Wheat flour– This is one of the key ingredients in this recipe. We are going to be working around our other ingredients to make our pancakes fluffy and soft because wheat flour gives denser pancakes.
➺ Oatmeal– I have used rolled oats to make my oatmeal flour in this recipe. You can also use quick-cooking oats. However, the amount of liquid you add should be slightly lesser than what s mentioned in this recipe.
➺ Bananas– This is an eggless pancakes recipe. So, Bananas will work as the egg replacement here.
➺ Milk– To make it softer and fluffier, we are going to be adding milk. This improves the taste of the pancakes.
➺Oil– I have used regular vegetable oil in this recipe. You can also use extra virgin coconut oil or canola oil in this recipe.
➺ Raw sugar– That beautiful dark golden crust that you see on the pancakes in the picture is because of this. Do not be alarmed if you find your pancakes browning too much. This is very normal when you use raw sugar.
➺Baking soda and Baking Powder– Both these are leavening agents that we’ll be using to soften up our pancakes.
➺ Cinnamon and vanilla– Our flavor factors in this recipe. Feel free to give the cinnamon a miss if you aren’t a fan.
Prep Work and Meal Planning Tips
Is there a rule that says pancakes are for weekends? With the right planning, you can make these on a weekday too.
I suggest that you powder the oatmeal ahead and keep it.
You can combine all the dry ingredients in the given proportions and store it in a dry air tight glass jar. This becomes your pancake mix. Now when you are ready to make them, just add the wet ingredients to a mixing bowl. Whisk well. When done, add the pancake mix that you have already prepped. Mix well and proceed with making them.

Now that we are all set, shall we check how to make these pancakes step by step?
Banana Oatmeal Pancakes Step By Step
➺ Mixing the dry ingredients
To begin with, place the oatmeal in a blender. Blend to a fine powder. Combine all the dry ingredients in a mixing bowl. Whisk well using a balloon whisk.
➺ Banana Puree
After powdering and prepping the dry flour mix, get started on the banana puree. Combine 1/2 of the milk and the bananas in the same blender. Blend to a smooth puree.
➺ Making the batter
Make a well in the middle of the dry mixture. Tip in the oil, banana puree, remaining milk and mix well. If the batter is too thick, add more milk to adjust the consistency. The batter should be thick and yet flow easily from the ladle.
➺ Flipping them pancakes
Heat an iron skillet or pan. Not really ideal for flipping but well, you know, I prefer using an iron pan any day! Add a blob of butter to the pan and when it melts, pour a ladle of the batter in the middle.
Do not be tempted to spread it too thin, like a Dosa.
Bring the flame down to medium. Cook covered for about 1 min or until at least 1/2 of the raw batter on the surface is cooked and you can see tiny pores on the pancakes.
Now flip them over and cook open. Feel free to add some more butter to the pan after flipping. Cook for 30 to 45 secs.
Once done, flip and serve hot with toppings of your choice.
? Pro Tip: For fluffier pancakes, make sure to whisk the batter well to aerate it before cooking. This works especially well in wheat flour based pancakes that are denser in texture.
? Pro Tip: Don’t let the batter rest for too long after adding the baking soda and the baking powder.
