Almond Banana Pancakes (gluten/grain/dairy Free)




Introduction: Almond Banana Pancakes (gluten/grain/dairy Free)

About: I like to make food and create recipes! I share them here because it makes the world more efficient if we all share good ideas. I have a gluten/dairy free child who inspires much of what I create in the ...

I created these a week ago and have not been able to stop making them since!! They are possibly my favorite new food. I almost hesitate to call them pancakes....because they are so much more complex tasting than a plain old white flour pancake. The only way I can think of to describe these is a delicate fluffy soufflé, in cute little pancake form. Trust me on this...if you are looking for a great gluten/dairy free alternative to the typical eggs & bacon breakfast, these are for you!

Side note: These can also be made with peanut butter, with equally delicious results. I prefer almond butter, because it has a slightly milder flavor than the peanut butter version.

Step 1: Ingredients

3 eggs

3 large bananas

3/4 cup almond butter

1 teaspoon baking soda

1 teaspoon lemon juice

bittersweet choc chips (optional)

Step 2: Instructions

Heat your griddle to 300 degrees F (a slightly lower temp than I normally cook pancakes, these burn easily).

Put all of your ingredients (except for the choc chips) in the bowl of your food processor. Blend until completely smooth, stopping to scrape down the sides of the bowl as needed.

Transfer the batter to a bowl and add in the chocolate chips (if you like....these can be easily omitted). Using a 1/4 cup measuring cup, scoop your batter onto a griddle. The smaller you make the pancakes, the easier they are to flip (because the batter is so runny).

Cook until large bubbles start to come to the surface and pop. Flip over and cook another 60-90 seconds, until both sides are golden. Serve immediately.

Step 3: Serving/Storage

This recipes makes about 12 (4 inch) pancakes. I serve them plain, because they are delicious enough without any butter or syrup. These store very well in the fridge for a few days.

Step 4: Notes

You will be amazed at how much these little pancakes rise while they are cooking. They turn out super light and fluffy! I also make these without the chocolate chips and they are delicious plain too (almost like banana bread).

    If you want them fluffy/to rise, add some flax flour and baking powder rather than soda and add a smidge of something acid, like Kefir to help it rise. For lower fat use almond flour instead of butter.

    Dear walshlg: On the contrary! The combination baking soda - lemon makes them rise! In the country I live, it's very difficult to find baking powder gluten free, so we replace it with baking soda :)

    These are good. I think they rise because of the soda.
