A step-by-step guide to making the most deliciously perfect Gluten Free Banana Pancakes. This recipe makes five medium sized pancakes. I would recommend using two bananas and another smaller egg if you wanted to make more!
What you will need (Utensils) :-
· Medium sized mixing bowl
· Small ladle (or tablespoon)
· Fork or whisk
· Small/medium frying pan
· Cheese grater (optional)
· 2 spatulas
· A fish slice
· 1 banana
· 2 large free-range eggs
· A small amount of dark chocolate (optional)
· Acacia honey
· Unsalted butter
Peel your banana, chop it into three chunks and put in your mixing bowl.
Start to mush the banana with your fork until it becomes mushy and runny (don’t worry if you end up with small banana chunks).
TIP –To easily mush and mix your banana, squish the banana chunks against the side of the bowl with your fork to reduce them in size.
Crack both eggs into your banana mixture, and mix everything together until combined.
Then add a few dashes of the cinnamon and mix again.
Place your frying pan on a medium heat to begin with, and add a small chunk of your salted butter (about the size of your thumb) into the pan and let it melt.
Once the butter has melted, turn the heat up slightly.
Now, use your ladle (or tablespoon) to gather some of the mixture and drizzle it into the pan.
TIP – Don’t use too much mixture or the pancake will burn.
To check if the pancake is cooked, use one spatula to gently ease the sides away from the pan and check for a golden/brown colour.
(This is the tricky part) If the pancake is ready, use both spatulas (one in each hand) to pick up the pancake from either side and flip it, so the other side can cook.
When the pancake is fully cooked, and golden brown all over, you can take it out of the pan with your fish slice (or spatula) and put it on a plate.
Before starting your next pancake, add some honey to the top of the pancake you have just made. Repeat this for every pancake, so the honey seeps into the pancake for a yummy taste.
TIP – If you don’t want to use honey, Almond Butter is a great healthy alternative.
Repeat steps 3-5 until you have used all of your mixture up!
To finish off your pancakes, grate some dark (or milk/white) chocolate on the top of (or even in between) your pancakes – whatever you prefer. To create a great mixture of textures and flavors for you and your family to enjoy.
OPTIONAL – Add some whipped cream, ice cream or single cream for even more enjoyment.
After devouring your delicious pancakes, don’t forget to do the washing up!
I hope you and your family enjoy this healthy, gluten free pancake alternative. It’s quick and easy and super yummy!
