BANANA PANCAKES - GLUTEN FREE WITH CASSAVA FLOUR
Gluten free cassava flour pancakes are easy to make and pack in the flavor and texture of the pancakes you remember as a kid. These are gluten free! I am also going to try making them blueberry at a later time. And this flour is a shoe-in for pizza crust! Here is a quick recipe to get you started.
Gluten Free Pancakes – Banana
Makes about 12 small pancakes
1/3 cup Cassava or Chestnut flour (or another gluten free flour mix for baking)
2 teaspoon baking powder
2 bananas (ripe)
1 pinch of fine ground Celtic Sea Salt
1 pinch of ground vanilla
2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
1 tablespoon coconut sugar (optional) or Xylitol
1 tablespoon butter for pan. BUT… if you use Titanium Cookware, you will not need any butter or grease and they won’t stick and they will brown beautifully!
In a food processor add eggs and bananas and pulse until smooth. Add vanilla, lemon juice and sugar and blend again. In a medium mixing bowl add flour, Celtic Sea Salt® and baking powder and whisk together. Next whisk in the wet ingredients to the dry until fully combined.
Heat your Titanium Griddle or Fry pan to Medium heat. No oil is required. You will get amazing browning without it. Keep the heat on the low side… 4 or so. These brown really quickly probably due to the banana. You can use the baking sheet from our product line, or a frying pan. Either way, no oil is needed and it will brown evenly.
Scoop a 1/4 cup of the batter to form one pancake in the pan. Watch the pancakes to start bubbling in the center a few times before flipping over. Also, be sure to only flip the pancakes once. Repeat this process until the batter is gone. Enjoy hot with butter and your choice of syrup or jam. I like them just plain too.
Chestnut flour is a great alternative to wheat based flour in any recipe. The nutritional content of chestnut flour is generally high in fat, like other types of nut flour. Chestnut flour contains 1 g of protein in each serving, or 2 percent of the daily value.
Cassava Flour is made from the Cassava root itself. It is dense in calories, but low in fat and high in fiber. It is gluten-free. The Tapioca flour is made from the starch of the cassava root so I avoid that.
Enjoy these gluten free cassava flour pancakes made with bananas. Try your own version and use blueberries or peaches! It's a wonderful treat on a Sunday morning, without the gluten.
