If you’re in search of a gluten free pancake recipe that takes almost no time to make, then this is the one for you! We’d also like to say that this is nut free, but depending on where you buy your ingredients, it may not be so. So just be careful what you’re picking up and these can easily turn into nut, lactose and sugar free pancakes as well!
Supplies You’ll Need
- 1 banana
- 1 egg/egg white
- 2 tbsp almond/coconut flour
- Vanilla extract (optional)
- Maple syrup
- Fruits of choice
- Frying Pan
- Food processor/blender
1. Peel and slice up 1 banana
You’re going to want to dice up 1 banana into little slices so that it’s easier to blend. We’ve experienced problems in the past where the blade skips over the small chunky ends and leaves little bits in the mix. This actually ends up making it a little bit harder to cook.
2. Add 1 egg/egg white into the mixture
You can choose to either use a whole egg or just the egg white in your pancakes. It’ll be a little bit harder to flip the pancake if you only use the egg white so be patient when you’re cooking your pancakes and use a lower heat while giving them more time to cook. The slower the cook, the better the pancakes will be
3. Add 2 tbsp of almond/coconut flour
Add in 2 tablespoons or either almond or flour of your choice. The goal here is to replace actual baking flour with something else in order to give the pancakes their fluffiness and structure. You can choose to omit this step if you like, but your pancakes will be significantly floppier and not as stable or thick.
3.5 (Optional) Add a quick splash of vanilla extract
If you want to add some flavor to your pancakes, pour in a splash of vanilla extract. The pancakes will taste amazing without it anyways so it’s alright to leave it out.
4. Blend away
Once you’ve got all of these ingredients in your blender/food processor, make sure to blend away until everything is a well mixed puree.
5. Cook on medium heat
Pour out some of the pancake mixture onto a skillet and allow it to cook on medium heat. If you find that your pancake starts to burn, turn down the heat.
As the pancake cooks, you’ll see bubbles forming. At first, the bubbles will refill themselves with raw batter. Once you see that the bubbles remain as open holes, you can flip over your pancake.
6. Add toppings
When you’ve finished cooking through all of your batter, top off your pancakes the way you like it and you’re done! We love topping them with strawberries and then drizzling some maple syrup over top.
