Who doesn't love a stack of pancakes? These healthy, totally gluten-free and vegan ones really hit the spot. Instead of just throwing some sliced bananas on top of these flapjacks, we incorporated banana right into the batter making them both tender and incredibly flavorful. —Weird & Ravenous

  • Prep time 10 minutes
  • Cook time 20 minutes
  • Serves 2 (easily multiplied!)
Ingredients
  • 1 banana, peeled and roughly chopped
  • 1/2 cup almond milk
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose gluten-free flour

In This Recipe
Directions
  1. Combine the banana and the almond milk in a blender and puree until smooth. Pour the mixture into a bowl and stir in the flours, baking powder and salt.
  2. Heat up the coconut oil in a nonstick skillet set over medium heat. Working in batches if necessary, spoon in the batter (we like small ‘silver dollar pancakes,’ which are each about 2 tablespoons worth of batter). Cook the pancakes until nicely browned, about 2 minutes on each side. Transfer the pancakes to warm plates and serve with plenty of maple syrup.
