Yum. I mean, who doesn't love a delicious pancake right off the press? Especially when these are GLUTEN FREE!! Yay! Pull out the griddle and a few simple ingredients and you've got the everything you need for a relaxing, scrumptious meal. Plus...they're actually healthy. Enjoy. :)
We start with bananas. I'm not really sure if this is entirely normal, but my family almost always puts bananas in our pancakes. Trust me, it tastes really good, and adds a daily dose of fruit! Mash them with a fork.
Next, add eggs into the mashed banana mixture.
Now for some oats. This is one of the ingredients that makes them extra-super-duper healthier than normal pancakes! Don't skip these yummy oats (also, don't you just love this picture?! I was very proud). :)
Okay, and now we add flour. I used gluten-free flour (King Arthur's baking mix), but if you aren't gluten free and/or don't have any, just swap for regular flour. However, then you'll have to add in baking powder too, because the King Arthur's baking mix I used already has that in it. Just a teaspoon or two. If you have any questions, just comment below).
Now stir together. Yes, it will be very thick.
Next, add in your milk! I used skim. This will make it a lot runnier.
Sugar for a lil sweetness...
And if you want, chocolate chips for some fun...
Gorgeous and golden.
YUM! Fresh off the griddle, and ready to be consumed.
Walah! There you have it: a fresh batch of gluten-free pancakes. I hope you like them!
Gluten Free Banana Pancakes: (serves 9, you may want to double)
1/2 cup oats
1/2 cup King Arthur's gluten free baking mix
1 tablespoon sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder (2-3 if you're not using the King Arthur's flour)
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1/3 cup chocolate chips, optional
Combine all ingredients (in order above) in a bowl. Stir to combine. Scoop batter onto griddle set at 350 to form pancakes. Do this until there isn't any batter left. Top with whatever you like: syrup, butter, and fresh fruit! Enjoy!
