Introduction: How to Make Banana Peanut Butter Pancakes
In this instructable I will show you how to make vegan banana peanut butter pancakes. These pancakes contain no dairy, eggs or gluten. But what is more important is that the result tastes super delicious. The pancakes are made from oats flour that you can make yourself, peanut butter and banana.
To make the pancakes you start with grinding 2 tablespoons of flaxseeds I always use a mortar and pestle for this, but you can also use a coffee grinder or a blender. Add some water, so the flaxseeds can set. Then you can make the oats flour. Take ¾ to a cup of oats and put it in your food processor. Turn it on and let it turn into oats flour. That is all it takes. Add the oats flour to your flex seeds mixture and stir through. Now it is time for the milk. I prefer almond milk but you can also use soy milk, coconut milk, hazelnut milk, walnut milk or cashew milk.
While adding the milk and whisk it into a batter before you add the banana. I like my banana not to ripe when I eat them. The texture changes when they get to ripe and for some reason I find it less appealing when they are all brown and soft. As the banana gets mashed it is not a problem if it is a little spotty and brown. The banana will have more flavor this way. Mash it first and them add it to the batter. Whisk the banana through the batter and stir in two tablespoons of (homemade) peanut butter as the finishing touch.
To bake the pancakes I use a big pancake pan and some sunflower oil. Brush some oil in the pan and take two big spoons of batter. Swirl it into the pan and let it set before turning the pancakes and baking the other side. This recipe yields about 6 pancakes. If the batter is to thick just add some extra almond milk or water. Serve with icing sugar, sirup or fruit. Totally yum!
