For years now this simple recipe continues to be my favorite for delicious pancakes.
- Gluten Free all purpose flour
Instructions for two…
In a bowl, mash with a fork 3 medium yellow bananas. They do not have to be extra ripe as long as they are not green at all.
Add 4 eggs and whip vigorously into the bananas.
Add two heaping large spoonfuls (the big spoon in your set of silver) of gluten free all purpose flour of your choosing. My favorite is Namaste. It is very light with good flavor. Fold in gently until completely blended.
*The consistency of the 3 ingredients should be like a normal semi thick yet able to pour pancake batter. If you would like it thinner, add your choice of liquid. Or, allowing the mixture to set a few minutes before cooking will thicken it.
In a small frying pan, melt a spoonful of organic coconut oil. (or any cooking oil of your choosing)
Pour half the batter into the frying pan and cook to your liking on medium to low heat. Then repeat for the second pancake. But of course if your pan is large or you use a griddle, you will make both at the same time and you know what you need for oil, if any.
Additional ingredients for added flavor:
- I most often add organic almond flavoring into the batter. I love it so I add a full Tablespoon. You may add any flavoring you like.
- Nuts and seeds! Love those nuts and seeds! Whatever suits my mood. Sometimes I put nuts and seeds in the batter to cook with the pancakes and or I will also add some to the top of the pancakes after they cook. Some of my favorites are walnuts, pecans, sunflower seeds, and pumpkin seeds.
- Spices. If you want a heavier “fall” flavor, add cinnamon, clove, nutmeg and coriander or just grab your pumpkin pie spice mix. If going for these flavor combinations you also may want to use a heavier flour such as Bob’s Red Mill gluten free all purpose flour.
- Fruit and Flowers. Top the pancakes with your favorite fruits. Sometimes I use a single fruit, other times I will use a combination of 2 or 3 different fruits. I also will use lavender out of my garden.
- Pure Maple Syrup and Raw Honey. If you are sugar free you should be able to use raw honey or a date and nut mixture blended spreadable for a sweetener if you like. (pure maple syrup has many health benefits but is still a processed sweetener)
*The great thing about these pancakes is that the bananas deliver an element of sweetness that is enough for me with my tea.
