I'll make you (grain free) banana pancakes, pretend as if it's the weekend now

Updated: Feb 26, 2019


Since a few weeks I have started a grain free diet, which means absolutely no wheat, rice, pasta, bread..... Some of you might think "WHY WOULD YOU THAT" I am thinking the same at times.... But the overall feeling it's giving me & all the deliciousness I can eat, is definitely making it worth while, especially when you come across recipes like these grain free banana pancakes! We had them this morning & they were so ridiculously tasty that I had to share them!


SERVES: 8-10 small pancakes

INGREDIENTS:

  • 3 large eggs, at room temperature

  • ¼ cup non dairy milk (I use coconut or almond)

  • 1 overly ripe banana (brown spots are the best!)

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla

  • 1 teaspoon honey

  • 2 tablespoons coconut flour

  • ⅓ cup blanched almond flour

  • ½ teaspoon baking soda

  • ¼ teaspoon salt

  • 1 banana

  • ¼ cup raw cacoa nibs

  • Butter or coconut oil for the pan

INSTRUCTIONS:

  • Mix together the wet ingredients (including ripe banana), beating well until the eggs are beaten and slightly foamy.

  • Combine the dry ingredients in a separate bowl, then incorporate them into the wet. Whisk well until combined, then let sit for 3-5 minutes to let the coconut flour soak up some of the moisture.

  • Heat a cast iron (or non-stick) pan over medium-high heat. You can also use a griddle to make more pancakes at once. Mix the batter again, then begin making your pancakes.

  • Oil the pan with coconut oil or butter, then pour about a ¼ cup of batter per pancake. The pancakes are easier to flip if you keep them small.

  • Once the pancake begins to bubble, place a couple of slices of banana and a pinch of raw cacoa nibs on top.

  • Carefully flip the pancake over, (hardest part... took me 5 pancakes to get the trick) and cook for another minute until the pancake has fluffed up an feels slightly firm.

  • Keep hot in a warm oven until you are done making the remainder of the pancakes.

  • These are best eaten immediately, but if you have leftovers you can warm them in a toaster the next day.
