Healthy Breakfast: DIY Gluten Free Pancakes

For my PANCAKE LOVERS! 
I have been looking for a healthier alternative to replace those ever-delicious, classic buttermilk pancakes. You’re probably thinking, “Duh, just eat wheat pancakes”… Well, unfortunately, wheat pancakes leave me bloated (I think I’m allergic to gluten – I definitely need to get that checked out). During my research, I came across this recipe from simply-deliciousfood.com and I decided to try making these cute hotcakes for myself and, boy was it worth it!  In less than 30 minutes (prep time and cook time combined) I was able to to indulge in some warm, healthy, delicious (and gluten-free) goodness!  OMG, did I mention delicious?!  And, even more, they were fulfilling without leaving that bloated or lethargic feeling.  Follow this recipe and try them for yourself, I promise you’ll be hooked!

Ingredients

2 Bananas

2 Eggs

1/2 Cup Oats

1/2 Teaspoon Baking Powder

Pinch of salt.

To keep this as a healthy breakfast, use honey or organic maple syrup.

Instructions

  1. In a blender, combine the peeled banana, eggs, oats, baking powder and salt.
  2. Allow to blend until the mixture is as smooth as you want it and blended well. Allow the batter to stand for 10-20 minutes until thickened slightly.
  3. Heat a non-stick frying pan over medium heat.
  4. Fry spoonfuls (1 level pot spoon = 1 pancake) of the batter until golden brown on both sides.
  5. Serve with a drizzle of maple syrup and fresh fruit of your choice.
  6. Enjoy!

Homemade Vegan Pancakes!

Vegan-whole wheat pancakes (2)


Here is a really easy recipe for homemade vegan pancakes

Prep time: 5 mins

Cook time: 10 mins

Total time: 15 mins

1 cup of flour ( I used whole wheat flour)

1 tablespoon of sugar ( I used organic brown sugar)

2 tablespoons of baking powder

1/8 teaspoon of salt

1 1/4 cup of almond milk

2 tablespoons of vegetable oil ( I used olive oil)

**optional**

1 mashed banana

Directions:

You will need a 9″ or 12″ frying pan. Lightly grease pan with oil to medium heat.

Combine all dry ingredients.

Add the almond milk and vegetable oil to your mixture.

Mix until smooth.

If you love bananas like I do, then add mashed banana (to the taste) to your mix.

The pan should be ready for you.

Add your batter (One pot spoon of mixture = one pancake) to the pan.

When you see bubbles in the middle of the pancake, carefully flip over your pancake.

Repeat until the batter is gone.

Oh, and most importantly, enjoy!
