Plantain Pancakes| 3 Ways| Fluffy & Vegan

This is one recipe that warms my heart. In January I decided to be Vegan for 21 days and I fell in love with the lifestyle. Although I am not completely sold or ready to go on a plant based journey, it has certainly influenced the way I eat or prepare my food. 

This recipe is one of the many experiments I came up with while trying to explore more plant based meals; plus who does not love Plantains I mean😋 its versatility knows no bounds. I have manipulated this fruit in many ways and I hope to share more on my blog 😀

From the sweetness in the Plantain and the texture, this is one recipe that just works and you definitely have to try this! A fresh new perspective and taste to Pancakes. In this blog post, I will be showing you 3 ways to enjoy my fluffy DELIICIOUS Plantain Pancakes.
