These simple and delicious Chai Spiced Pancakes infused with warming chai spices and drizzled with a maple coconut butter glaze makes for a perfect cozy breakfast on a Sunday morning.
This recipe literally came together on a Sunday morning when I woke up and was craving pancakes, then realized that we had practically no groceries in the house, which is strange for us as normally our fridge is bursting with all kinds of fresh food, but Mr. Matt and I just came back from our trip to Chicago and planned on going shopping that day to stock up. I was so determined to make pancakes, that one way or another I was going to make it work! And so, my MacGyver side kicked in – I had 2 eggs, ripe bananas, oat flour, spices, and some non-dairy hazelnut creamer – with these limited supplies I knew I could do it!!
I know what you’re all thinking! But Nikole, you already have a Five Ingredient Banana Oat Pancake recipe why not just make that? Well with the chilly winter weather upon us, I wanted something warming and that’s where the idea of tossing in some spices like cinnamon, cardamom, ginger, nutmeg, and allspice came in. I also amped up these pancakes by drizzling them with maple coconut butter, which is so easy to make and makes for a nice change from the usual maple syrup.
As you can see, you don’t need to have all the traditional ingredients to make pancakes. You can swap the oat flour for almond flour, coconut flour, or any flour you have on hand. Use applesauce in place of bananas, and substitute flaxseed meal or chia seeds for eggs. I do this when I don’t have any eggs! And, if you don’t have coconut butter to make the glaze just pour on some good old fashioned maple syrup or honey.
I wasn’t planning on posting another pancake recipe so soon, but these pancakes were so delicious I had to share it with you guys! If you love pancakes as much as I do, then you’re in the right place!

I think it’s time to put aside my love for regular banana pancakes 🙂 Thank You! I found this new version very delicious and flavorful!! I didn’t have any maple syrup for the glaze, so I substituted it with honey and it was delicious!
