With so many people on special diets nowadays it is great when I come across a new recipe that is easy, healthy, and can be consumed by mostly everyone. My recipe is gluten-free, lactose-free, high-protein, high-potassium and easy to make.
Now I know what you’re thinking how can pancakes be gluten-free? Well I will share a little secret with you. These pancakes contain no flour of any kind. No baking powder, no added sugar, no yeast, nothing that you would typically associate with pancakes. As a matter of fact these pancakes require only two simple ingredients that I bet you have right now in your kitchen. The ingredients are bananas and eggs. Yep that’s it! Just two simple ingredients and you are on your way to making delicious banana pancakes.
Now that you know the ingredients here is how you make them. Take one ripened banana (the more ripe the better) peel it, place it in a glass bowl and mash is up with a fork. Then add 2 eggs to the bowl and stir the mixture together until you have gotten most of the lumps out. But if the mixture is lumpy it is still totally fine!
Note: This recipe will make 8-9 medium sized pancakes. Double the ingredients if you want to make 20-22 pancakes, then you need to use 2 ripened bananas and 4 eggs.
Grease up your skillet or pan and turn on your stove top to medium heat. Check the heat by sprinkling a couple of drops of water on the pan, if it sizzles it’s hot enough. Pour out your batter into pan. Each pancake should be should be about 4″ in diameter. If you make them too big they will be difficult to flip. Let cook on each side for 1-2 minutes and they are done. Put them to your plate and feel free to top them off with some butter, maple syrup, jelly, some blueberries or anything else you fancy. My husband likes to mix cinnamon into his egg and banana batter before cooking them up.
Note: After I made these I saw this BuzzFeed Video in my Facebook feeds. I thought it would be fun to share. The video wowed me but the comments wowed me too. Some people said that these are not pancakes, but banana omelette or banana flavored eggs and they taste disgusting and look gross. But honestly they are not! So why not give them a try and to see for yourself, right?
Feel free to experiment with different variations. Let me know what you think of these pancakes and please share any of your own Pancake recipes or other recipes on my Facebook page.
