Vegan Pancakes

Who doesn’t love a pancake? With Pancake Day only a couple of weeks away, and still inspired by Veganuary, I wanted to find a way of cooking them without the eggs. Most recipes substitute bananas in place of eggs, but having never been a fan of bananas I wanted to see how easy it is…
