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!
