A Vegan Boozy Breakfast: Banana pancakes with Maple Pecan Whiskey sauce using Jura single malt whiskey. 

Banana pancakes were one of my favorites growing up. There’s always something special about overripe bananas and baked goods that is dear to my heart.

Vegan banana pancakes are super easy to make and only call for: ripe bananas, flour, sugar, butter, salt, vanilla, milk n spice.

How to make Banana pancakes

Moist vegan banana pancakes with maple pecan whiskey sauce and sliced bananas.

There are so many ways to make pancakes. Some like them fluffy and airy and others like them thinner and crispier. It depends on my mood which one I choose.

With this batch of banana pancakes I used 2 bananas which to be honest is a lot but they were both very overripe so why waste a good thing?

Here’s a tip: The more banana you use the thicker pancake will be. This means you will have to cook them longer and they won’t be as fluffy but they will have more flavor.

It is quite fine to use more than one banana but if you want your pancakes fluffy I suggest only using one.

For the pancake batter

  • First, combine all of your dry ingredients together. In a separate bowl,  mash your bananas.
  • Next, melt down your vegan butter and add it to your banana mixture along with your vanilla.
  • Finally, incorporate your dry ingredients into your wet and mix well.

How to make the Maple Pecan Whiskey Sauce

JURA single malt whiskey has a smokey sweet flavor and pairs well with the nutty pecans and sweet maple.

I had a bottle of JURA single malt whiskey gifted to me that I haven’t opened (still breastfeeding) so I thought sweet and smokey is a MUST try!

The nutty, buttery maple pecan whiskey sauce pairs so well with the banana flavor and it reminded me of warm pecan pie *insert mouth water*.

Here’s how to make the maple pecan whiskey sauce:

  • Start off by toasting your pecans in a saucepan. Then add in your butter and let it melt down cooking your pecans.
  • Next, Pour in the rest of your ingredients and the whiskey. let it come to a boil.
  • Once the alcohol has cooked out (it will loose that alcohol smell), turn down your heat and let the sauce simmer for a few minutes.
  • To finish, remove the sauce from the heat and allow to cool before serving.

Now its time to cook your pancakes.

How to cook the Vegan Banana Pancakes

I added toasted pecans and fresh slices of banana. This was heavenly.

Here’s how to cook the pancakes:

  • In your preferred sauce pan. Add a bit of vegan butter. I use butter because I love crispy pancake edges.
  • Pour your batter into the saucepan and let them cook on medium low until the batter forms bubbles.
  • Using a spatula, gently work around the edges of the pancake and flip it over to cook the other side. Keep your fire relatively low to avoid burning as with vegan pancakes I find they take longer to cook.

Don’t be afraid to add on

Pancakes are all about add ons for me. If you don’t like nuts then switch out the pecan whiskey sauce for:

  • Chocolate chips
  • Fresh fruit and yogurt.
  • Just have them plain with regular maple syrup too!

Useful ideas for the Maple Pecan Whiskey sauce

This Maple pecan whiskey sauce is not just for pancakes. Here are a few ideas that maybe useful:

  • Use on veggies like carrots or sweet potatoes
  • This would be great as a glaze for cinnamon rolls
  • As a dipping sauce for fritters
  • Apply this instead of caramel for ice cream or caramel popcorn
