Banoffee Pancakes – Super delicious and healthy

by bloomingwithflavors

These banoffee pancakes are inspired by a classic banoffee pie, one of my favorite desserts ever. Fluffy vegan pancakes combined with date caramel, whipped coconut cream, and banana are truly delicious!

The word “banoffee” combines the words “banana” and “toffee” and it usually describes banoffee pie, an English dessert pie made from a biscuit base, banana, whipped cream, and caramel sauce. 

I’ve tried this delicious cake for the first time in Australia and fell in love with it! The combination and cream, banana, and caramel is truly heaven. But well, it can be also a bit too creamy, so I wanted to come up with a more healthy version and decided to bring combine these ingredients with pancakes.

The banoffee pancakes are the perfect breakfast for cozy and lazy mornings. While the breakfast recipe is quite comforting, it’s made of healthy and plant-based ingredients only. For us, this recipe became one of our favorite breakfast recipes, and hope you like it as well.

What are Banoffee Pancakes?
