The Best (and Easiest) Gluten Free/ Dairy Free Pancakes in the Universe

And so begins the shortest and most fun post I will ever write: the recipe for gluten free/ dairy free pancakes.  As some of you know, I despise doing “substitutes” for gluten unless it’s a holiday.  What I mean is I can’t stand overloading on gluten free bagels, gluten free bread, or gluten free _______ (insert terrible carb) which are full of rice flour.  You’re not helping anyone by diving into a pile of rice.  There are a lot of brands that try and make gluten free goodies, and I’m just not a huge fan.  Plus, a lot of the mixes contain dairy, which as we know, is a swell sentence for me right now (pun intended), and they don’t taste anywhere near as good as a true gluten-filled item.  Imposters!

I’ve been about 80% raw for a month and a half now, but on Sunday had the most insane craving for some pancakes.  Rich found a recipe for gluten free/ dairy free pancakes that seemed really easy, so we gave it a shot.  They were so delicious and nutritious (well, as nutritious as a pancake can be), so I had to share.

RECIPE: The Best and Easiest GF/ DF Pancakes in the Universe (makes 6)

  • 1 banana
  • 2 eggs
  • cinnamon, depending on how much you like
  • 2 tablespoons almond flour
  • 1/8 teaspoon baking powder

Mash the banana.  Add the eggs and wisk together.  Add remaining ingredients and mix.  (You can add optional items: GF granola, DF chocolate chips, berries, raw nut butter, etc.).  Put a teaspoon of organic coconut oil in a pan over medium heat.  To make smaller pancakes, use two tablespoons of mix and cook 2 minutes on the first side, and 1 minute on the other.  Voila!
