Introduction: Healthy Gluten-Free Banana Pancakes
I'm a new mom, so I'm dealing with some of the common motherhood issues. Trying to keep my family happy and healthy, and trying to lose some of the weight I gained during my pregnancy. This yummy pancake recipe is low in calories and fat, and high in nutrients. Here's the deal: You take out the wheat. This would make a great breakfast for anyone trying to lose weight, picky toddlers and children, and people trying to get more nutrients into their diet. Did I mention they're gluten-free! You probably already have all the ingredients in your kitchen!
Step 1: Ingredients
This is so easy!
- 1 Egg
- 1 Banana
This yields three pancakes. You can double and triple as needed depending on how many you are serving and how many pancakes you want.
Step 2: Macerate
Break down your banana in a bowl, until it is an applesauce consistency. Add in your egg and a pinch of cinnamon, mix.
Step 3: Heat
Heat your oil, I used a pinch of coconut oil, you could also use butter.
Step 4: Cook
Lay your batter onto your heated oil as you would a regular pancake. They cook about the same way as your average pancake so you will know when to flip them.
Step 5: Serve
Cover with your favorite toppings and serve! :)
They aren't gorgeous but they come in at less than 200 calories a serving and match up the pancake consistency pretty well.
We have a be nice policy.

How ripe should the banana be?
Hi there! Anywhere from yellow to dark brown is fine, I think they're best in the middle. Green ones don't break down well enough for a very good texture so I would avoid them.
Thanks. I'll give it a shot.
