Having pancakes for breakfast might still be more popular in the USA than here in the UK but if restaurant menus in the UK are anything to go by it is becoming an increasingly common choice here. There is an abundance of different recipes for pancakes, most of which use flour or obscure replacements and often (in my experience) don’t work. These Gluten Free Pancakes are delicious, flourless and the recipe is as easy as to follow (and change to your liking) as the ingredients are to find.
Using bananas and sugar free peanut butter means that they are a healthy way to start your day with tons of energy and they only take 5 minutes or so to make so are a good option for the weekend or a work day.
Ingredients (To make 3 pancakes)
1 Ripe Banana
A heaped teaspoon of peanut (or any other nut) butter.
Your choice of topping, yoghurt and fruit or nuts works well as does simply spreading them with butter.
- Mash up the banana with a fork
- Break the egg into a mixing bowl
- Put the banana and nut butter in with the egg and mix together well.
Pour about a third of the mixture into the Pan over a medium/high heat- be careful not to pour too much in as this will make it difficult when it comes to flipping the pancake over.
After about 3 minutes you should be able to see the pancake becoming solid, when this happens flip it over and cook it for about the same amount of time on the other side.
