Description

These gluten free pancakes require no special flours or wacky ingredients: just whole foods you’ll have in your pantry. And they’re so, so tasty.


Scale

Ingredients

  • 3 large very ripe bananas
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups rolled oats, plus more for topping
  • 1/4 cup neutral oil (sunflower, vegetable or grapeseed)
  • 1/2 cup milk or almond milk
  • ¼ cup pure maple syrup
  • 1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon kosher salt
  • Oil, for brushing the griddle

Instructions

  1. In a blender, combine all ingredients. 
  2. Lightly grease a skillet with butter and wipe off any extra grease with a paper towel. Heat the skillet to medium heat.
  3. Before you start, make sure the batter is at a pourable consistency and not too thick: if so, add a splash of milk. 
  4. Pour the batter into small circles and fry the pancakes until the bubbles pop on the top. Then flip and heat until cooked through and lightly browned. Serve immediately or keep warm in a 300 degree Fahrenheit oven until serving.
