I love food.
I love everything about food.
I love buying food.
I love cooking food.
I love eating food.
I love sharing food.
I also have food allergies.
There are occasions when I am frustrated by the foods I cannot eat. There are other times when I am grateful for the opportunity to find new and delicious (often healthier) ways to eat the foods I enjoy. This is one of those recipes I found, have come to absolutely love, and am honored to share it with you!
The original recipe can be found here: https://www.aspicyperspective.com/paleo-pancakes/
This is how I cook them:
I use a countertop “bullet” blender
(it is not the “bullet”, but a similar type of blender)
I put into the blender:
- one VERY ripe banana (very soft, often brown)
- 2 eggs
- 1 TBS coconut flour
I blend it up till it’s all liquid and then I add:
- another TBS of coconut flour
and I blend again for about 30 seconds or so, until the flour is all mixed in…
While I am blending, I have put a small pancake-sized pan on the stove with some butter on medium heat (whatever butter you want to use; I have a dairy-free butter I use).
By the time the mix is blended, the butter has started to bubble, and I just pour the whole mix right into the pan. I cover the pan with a lid and let it cook until there’s no liquid rolling around on the top anymore (it took some practice for me to get the hang of not burning the bottom while the top cooked).
While that’s cooking, I start another batch in the blender, and once the first pancake is done, I take the pan off the heat and put more butter in. By the time the butter is melted, I can put the pan back on the heat and pour the next mixture in (if I leave the pan on the heat, it is too hot for the next pancake and burns the butter).
To keep the pancakes that are already cooked hot, I take another pan with a lid and put it on low heat on another burner. I put tinfoil in the pan and keep the cooked pancakes (and bacon) in it while I continue to cook.
The color of these pancakes are quite dark when they are done, however, as long as you keep the heat low enough that they do not smoke, they do not taste burnt…
I repeat until I have as many pancakes as I want, and then serve with honey or syrup, YUM!
Whether or not you have food allergies, these are yummy, and I feel good about eating them because one pancake is just a banana and two eggs… something I normally eat for breakfast anyways!
P.S. On occasion, I purchase the bulk "overripe bananas" from the grocery store and made as many of these pancakes as I can. I individually wrap the pancakes in plastic wrap and foil and freeze. When I want a pancake, I microwave and enjoy!
