Gluten-Free Banana Pancake Recipe
No-Flour Banana Pancakes
This is a healthy pancake recipe that both kids and adults can enjoy—without the guilt of flour-filled pancakes. This is a without-flour, healthy recipe that falls under the clean-eating category.
This recipe can be considered gluten-free if you try it without the baking powder, but some baking powders may contain gluten.
I make these for breakfast quite frequently, as I try to keep my diet clean. I like adding a pinch of salt (maybe even a little extra) because the salt seems to bring out the banana's natural sweetness. This is great served with maple syrup, butter, honey, or a side of fruit.
If you're feeling naughty, I recommend taking some dark chocolate and making this a chocolate-chip banana-pancake recipe. Chopped up strawberries also go well with this (I mean, obviously. Bananas + strawberries = bliss. I think some yogurt company came up with this formula, but I'm not too sure!)
- 1 1/2 ripe bananas
- 2 eggs
- 1/8 teaspoon baking powder
- 2 pinches of salt
- Crack eggs and whisk in small bowl. Add a pinch of salt and whisk in.
- Add your banana to an alternative bowl that is larger and lightly mash. You can mash with either a potato masher or a fork. Do not put this in a blender or food processor- this will make the banana mixture too thin. Also do not over-mash. You want to see (and taste!!) chunks of banana
- Add the egg mixture and 1/8 tsp of baking soda to the bananas.
- Turn stove on medium to low heat, lightly coat pan in olive oil (as you would for cooking an egg) and cook pancakes. You should pour about 2-3 Tbsp of the pancake mixture per pancake. Cook for about a minute on each side to allow for the baking soda to activate. Pancakes should be a dark golden-brown color. They should also appear fluffy.
- This will yield about 6-8 mini pancakes. Serve with butter and maple syrup, but they're even good plain. (A little organic honey on top is awesome too!)
