• OMG. Pancakes!

    March 3, 2012

    Oh, boy, do I have a delicious pancake recipe for you guys!

    IMG_0821 (675x900)

    Ingredients:

    • 3 bananas
    • 3 eggs
    • 1/4 cup almond butter
    • 1/4 cup almond meal/flour
    • 1/2 tsp baking powder
    • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract

    Directions:

    Mash bananas. (I like the mash-in-peel method the best. It works great with unripe bananas.)

    Combine all ingredients in a food processor and blend well. (You could always mix by hand; it’ll just take some elbow grease to get the batter really smooth.)

    Take note of your mess in the kitchen. I promise, it’s worth it.

    Pour batter onto a pre-heated, coated-in-non-stick-cooking-spray skillet or fry pan. Cook and flip.

    OMG. Pancakes!

    These babies turned out so well. The texture is light, fluffy, and chewy, sort of like a traditional pancake mixed with a crepe. The flavor is slightly sweet (think banana bread) with a little bit of nuttiness. My gosh, they’re delicious. I spread almond butter on mine this morning. Mmm!

    Mmmm gluten free pancakes! Awesome, and they look like regular (non gf) pancakes. I need to find some almond flour so I can make them!

    Could I use wheat flour for these pancakes?

    Reply

    Tina March 5, 2012 at 10:31 am

    @Lindsey: Sure, why not? I’ve only made them once with almond flour, so let me know how they turn out if you make them! :)

    Just made these and THEY.ARE.AWESOME! I used only 2 bananas and 2 eggs and it turned out GREAT for just me. And I used all-purpose flour. I also used mostly greek yogurt instead of PB or AB because we were out of those ;) Sooo I guess I didn’t really make your recipe but it was great inspiration! I love the banana taste & texture.

    @Hannah: did you use all of the other ingredients with the amounts listed or did you scale back a bit? i only have 2 bananas as well, so was going to try and make it work with them.

    @Laura: This is a super late reply, but I scaled them back a bit. Didn’t really do any math on it! :)

    Thanks for sharing this recipe! I made these pancakes myself and adapted it just a little bit. I also did it with Star Wars molds too. :)

    I’m also happy that this recipe involved almond butter and bananas too! Most of the ingredients we already had at home (figures, since our household is an “endurance sport” type of house), which made making this recipe even better with less time shopping! ^_^

    Hi, Tina:

    I just wanted to say that a few friends and I tried out your pancake recipe this morning, and we really enjoyed it! The poor college students that we are, we only had two bananas, so we substituted in a sweet potato instead. Anyway, thanks for the recipe! We were all surprised at how fluffy they were!

    I finally picked up almond meal to make these pancakes and I loved them. Great recipe! Super easy and really filling!

    Made these this morning for our long weekend breakfast. OMG so good!! and so simple. They sure cook up fast, way faster than traditional pancakes. I *almost* burnt the fist batch, but they were still delicious. Thanks Tina!!

    I just made this right now and it is amazing! I stupidly forgot to add in the 3T of almond butter but it still turned out great especially after spreading almond butter on top of the pancakes. My boyfriend loved them too and proclaims he wants more. Thanks for a great recipe!

    These sound super good. I have never used almond flour. Is it gluten/carb free?

    Hi Tina!
    I just made these pancakes this morning, and while they were really good, mine definitely didn’t look as good as yours! The first ones I put on the pan burned pretty fast, so I tried to flip the next ones faster but it was almost impossible because I don’t think they were ready to be flipped. Any advice!?

    Tina August 13, 2012 at 8:44 am

    It sounds like your heat was up to high. Try medium-low heat.

    I made these this morning and added some pumpkin spice into the batter. Then drizzled with local honey and cinnamon! A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!!! :)

    These look so simple and delicious, but I don’t have almond meal on hand. I do have oat flour, brown rice flour, and some whiter gluten free flours. Which would you suggest if I try to make these this weekend? Thanks!

    Tina October 13, 2012 at 7:27 am

    I think any of them would work! :)

    Love this recipe. Added some fresh strawberries. Having a little trouble though not burning one side. I guess these guys really need a low heat? Is that what I’m doing wrong….?

    Yep, medium-low heat is key! :)

    How many cups of banana did you use? Mine burnt and stuck and I think it was cuz my 3 bananas were alot bigger than yours. Tastes really good but took me an hour to cook it all cuz I had to cook them small and slow. They look sloppy but taste super banana-y

    Reply

    Tina February 15, 2013 at 3:13 pm

    I’m not sure. I used 3 medium/large bananas.

    Michelle February 21, 2013 at 6:29 pm

    Tried these tonight. The batter was much too runny even after adding an additional 1/2 cup of the flour. My bananas were banana bread quality. Wonder if their ripeness contrbuted to the runny batter.

    I made these this morning because I’ve been craving some breakfast comfort food (without the carbs of course). Amaze-balls. I’ve found what I’ve been missing! Thank you sooo much:)

    I finally made these pancakes this morning…and they were OMG delicious! I didn’t have any nut butter, so just made them without and they turned out great! And I have leftovers to toast tomorrow morning! Thanks for the great recipe!
