Pancakes are great at bringing back childhood memories. Well they do for us.

Is there a way to make these egg free? Would an egg substitute like Follow Your Heart Vegan Eggs work?

purelytwins September 29, 2016 - 12:08 am

Amanda, not sure about that egg substitute. We never used it before so unsure of what would happen, sorry. We did link to our vegan version of a pancake.

These look SO GREAT! I can’t wait to make these. Would it matter if I used recipe, yellow plantains versus green plantains? Do you think one is needed over the other? Thanks! 🙂

We feel any ripeness of plantains would work in these. Just with the yellow more ripe plantain they might be more sweeter and maybe a little softer in texture.

I wasn’t sure what to expect when I tried these, and I couldn’t believe how good and pancake-y they really were! I think I just found my new favorite breakfast.

Wahoo! So glad to hear you enjoyed the recipe.

Hoe ripe was your plantain used in your recipe to achieve the same texture as photos on your blog?

purelytwins November 8, 2016 - 11:28 pm

typically the green with a little yellow works best. A more ripe (yellow) plantain will provide a more moist texture
