Healthy Gluten-Free Banana Pancakes




Introduction: Healthy Gluten-Free Banana Pancakes

About: I love kitties and cooking. :) Degree in nursing, worked at an animal shelter for a while before staying home to care for my baby and pets. Passion for illustration and nutrition.

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

- Cinnamon

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.

    Question 4 years ago on Step 1

    How ripe should the banana be?


    Answer 4 years ago

    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.
