I am so excited to share one of our favorite breakfast treats with you! I don't know about you, but it always seems like we end up with at least a few bananas that just go bad quick. Not bad enough to bake with, but bad as in kids and I have no desire to peel one back and eat it as is.
So what to do? Of course you can always make a homemade banana bread, but that takes time so I love to make some easy, gluten free banana pancakes with staples that I keep on hand.
Since I have been watcing my budget a lot more closely, I have love shopping at Swansonvitamins.com for my staples! The quality of the products are amazing, they have a TON of organics and I can usually find great deals and free shipping. Plus, I know for me it is easier not to get carried away shopping online vs in the store. Online I am able to stick to my list so much easier! My new system is that all staples come from online, and I head to the store for the fresh fruits, veggies and meats.
So, now onto the banana pancakes! This recipe makes 4 nice sized pancakes so if you want more, just simply double it.
You need 2 very ripe bananas, 3 eggs, 3-4 tbsp. of Coconut Flour and 2 tbsp. of coconut oil.
1) Crack 2 eggs into a mixing bowl and for the third egg, add only the egg white.
2) Add in 2 ripe bananas and mash into the egg mixture with a fork.
3) Add in 3-4 tbsp. of coconut flour into the mixture. I used 4 tbsp., as I wanted a thicker consistency. It can depend on the size of the eggs as well, and I had jumbo on hand.
4) Heat up 2 tbsp. of coconut oil in a pan until it is hot enough so the mixture will not stick. I add the mixture in in 4 globs then, I gently pat the mixture into patty shapes with a fork.
5) Gently fry for a good 3-4 minutes on each side being sure not to brown them too much.
6) Serve with some of your favorite fruit and maple syrup! Some cinnamon sprinkled on top is always good as well! Enjoy!
What do you like to do with those bananas that go bad way too quickly?
