Banapple Pancakes!

Introduction: Banapple Pancakes!

In this Instructable, I will show you how to make a gluten free, vegan/vegetarian, and just plain regular version of my banana applesauce pancakes. They are a great way to start your day. They're easy and delicious, and my favorite leftovers. Take two leftover pancakes, and make peanut butter sandwiches for lunch!

BanApple Pancakes Recipe

1 cup oat flour (I made mine by putting regular oatmeal in a magic bullet). You can also substitute any type of flour, so go crazy!

2 bananas (Experiment! Add more or less bananas and applesauce to change the taste!)

1/4 cup applesauce (I made my own by boiling apples, then simply blending them! - without cores of course)

3 eggs (or egg substitute)

1/3-1 cup of milk depending on how thick you want your pancakes.

1 tsp baking soda

2 tsp baking powder

Dash of cinnamon!

Dash of vanilla!

1/8 cup oil (I used coconut oil, however, any oil will work based on your preference.)

Step 1: Bananas and Applesauce

Add the bananas and apple sauce and Mash Mash Mash!!!
I prefer to do this step by hand. You can get the same (If not smoother) results using a blender. Simply mash the bananas and applesauce until you reach the consistency you prefer (It does not need to be super smooth or chunky as it will cook the same).

Step 2: Oatmeal Flour!

It is super simple and easy to make oat flour if you have a blender, food processor, or some way of chopping big things into smaller things

As you can see in the images above, you simply blend (chop, dice or whatever verb you choose to use) until you reach the consistency you desire. I prefer a somewhat coarser consistency.

Measure your cup of oats after you have made it into flour.

You can substitute any kind or flour you want/prefer. I prefer oat flour since its an easy and simple substitute for those who are gluten free.

Now that we have that down, go ahead and add it to our mixture!

Step 3: Everything Else

Now it is time to add everything else:

3 Eggs
1 tsp baking soda
2 tsp baking powder
2/3-1 cup milk (based on your own preference of thickness.)
Dash of cinnamon and vanilla!

Note: The milk does not need be cow milk. I use almond milk. I have used soymilk.

Step 4: Cooking!!!

Our Favorite and Last step! Simply cook these (awesome) pancakes like any other pancakes. Cook on medium heat on a greased pan (my regular nonstick pan didn't really need greasing). Turn when bubbles start forming.

A few Important tips for gluten free cooking:

If your pancakes tend to fall apart during the flipping process, add a little more egg. Eggs are binders which keeps the pancake together, however, remember to balance! Too much egg and it tastes eggy, too much milk, and they fall apart.

If you don't like the way the pancakes turned out,try try again. If the recipe is missing something (you want a more apple taste for example), simply add more of what you're missing. Beware of the balance of ingredients. If you add too much applesauce (as in our example), you may have very fluid pancakes. Good for shape shifting, but they may not stick together.

Experiment! I cannot emphasize this enough. I want to hear from all of you on how you made this recipe your own! add walnuts, or chocolate chips! Anything is possible when you put your mind to it!

There will be one last step with the vegetarian/vegan version of this recipe.
