Banana-rama Pancakes

It’s so cold outside and all I want to do is eat delicious comfort foods like pancakes! Other than white rice all other grains are restricted on the SIBO diet that I’m following, so flour is a no no. How am I going to get my pancake fix without flour?! Thanks to a quick search online I discovered a few grain-free pancake recipes that consist of eggs and bananas, whew there is hope!

After trying a few of the egg and banana only recipes, I felt like there was still something missing. It was fluffiness of regular pancakes. The egg and banana pancakes are dense and I love a fluffy pancake. All those holes make little homes for the maple syrup, am I right?!

Since I can have coconut, I tried adding coconut flour to the egg and banana and boom – delicious fluffy pancakes were born! I also added a little baking powder to lighted up the pancakes and some cinnamon because why not?

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Mash the bananas in a bowl with a fork.
  2. Add eggs and whisk together, trying to remove as many large lumps as you can.
  3. Once the banana and egg are mixed add the coconut flour, baking powder and cinnamon, whisk together to form smooth batter.
  4. Heat a non-stick skillet on medium and grease with coconut oil.
  5. Scoop in batter, I like to use my 1/2 cup measuring cup but you can make whatever size pancakes you like best!
  6. Cook the batter until the surface of the pancakes has little bubbles and the edges start to lighten in colour and firm up. About 2 min but leave them longer to firm if needed, these can be a bit tricky to flip if not quite formed.
  7. With care flip the pancakes and cook the other side for about 2 min.
  8. Once pancakes are fully cooked transfer to a plate and serve with favourite toppings! I like blueberries and of course maple syrup but try some honey for a SIBO friendly version.
