Gluten Free Banana Bread Pancakes

Gluten Free Living – 2014

Gluten Free Banana Bread Pancakes are mouthwatering. I had a craving for pancakes last week and thought that a Banana Bread version might be quite tasty. I was right. These lovely pancakes filled with walnuts, bananas, and cinnamon–the flavors that you love in Banana Bread–turned out heavenly. They were moist, fluffy and delicious. I used a gluten free pancake mix and then served the pancakes with maple syrup, extra bananas and extra walnuts. I could have eaten these dreamy pancakes all day long. Seriously.

I’m always looking for ways to eat a little healthier–not as many processed foods, less or no sugar, better quality grains and oils–and the like. Every now and then I get a sweet tooth attack so I look for ways to satisfy that craving without the excess sugar. Sometimes I make delicious salads with lots of fruit or honey in the dressing instead of sugar. Sometimes I make pancakes and sweeten them with real maple syrup not corn syrup or high fructose corn syrup. Gluten Free Banana Bread Pancakes sure tasted divine. I loved them, and yes, my sweet tooth was completely satisfied after a batch of these yummy pancakes.

If you’re looking for a healthier option for a Christmas or New Year’s breakfast then I recommend giving Gluten Free Banana Bread Pancakes a try.  All the deliciousness you’re used to experiencing in a lovely loaf of homemade Banana Bread are incorporated, providing a spectacular culinary delight you and your family are sure to love. You won’t feel so guilty about it either. 🙂

Serve Gluten Free Banana Bread Pancakes with maple syrup, banana slices and walnut halves. I loved having the extra bananas and  walnuts for extra crunch and taste.

 

Here’s what I did.

I used these ingredients.

Mash bananas on a plate with a fork. Set aside.

Place gluten free flour or baking and pancake mix in a medium-sized mixing bowl. Add eggs, cinnamon, walnuts, bananas and vanilla.

Add milk.

Whisk ingredients until smooth.

Melt coconut oil or butter in a skillet. Pour batter into skillet. Fry until the bottom is crispy and bubbles have formed across the entire pancake on the top–about 5 minutes. (I found that the coconut oil seemed to burn the pancakes more quickly than using butter. So if you use coconut oil, keep the temperature lower).

Flip pancakes over and cook the other side–about 1-2 minutes.

Stack pancakes on a serving plate. Drizzle with maple syrup. Garnish with fresh banana slices and walnut halves.

Here’s a look at the pancakes before I had drizzled them with maple syrup. While maple syrup is a lot more expensive than corn syrup the flavor is superb.
