Gluten-Free Banana Walnut Pancakes!
I followed @minimalistbaker 's recipie to a T, and they're THE BEST I've ever made so far. I'm taping this recipie on my cabinet door, it's that good! I only left out chocolate chips because I'm out of them but honestly I'd prefer them this way.
🔸1 medium ripe banana (brown and spotty preferred)
🔸1 1/2 Tbsp olive, avocado, or melted coconut oil (plus a little more for cooking)
1 1/2 Tbsp maple syrup (we recommend Grade A)
🔸2 tsp baking powder
🔸1/4 tsp sea salt
🔸1 - 1 1/4 cups non-dairy milk (we recommend plain unsweetened almond milk)
🔸3/4 cup gluten-free oat flour* (we recommend grinding from rolled gluten-free oats)
🔸3/4 cup gluten-free flour blend (we recommend our DIY blend for best results)
🔸1/4 cup almond flour (not almond meal // OR sub more gluten-free blend)
🔸To a mixing bowl, add banana and mash. Then add oil, maple syrup, baking powder, and salt and whisk to combine. Then add non-dairy milk (start with the lesser amount and work your way up as needed) and whisk to combine. If using coconut oil and it hardens or clumps, it's not a big deal. You can microwave (for 45 seconds - 1 minute) to remelt - otherwise, proceed.
🔸Add oat flour, gluten-free flour, and almond flour. Gently stir (being careful not to over-mix) to combine. It should be thick but pourable/scoopable. If too thin, add more gluten-free or almond flour. If too thick, thin with a little non-dairy milk. If adding fruit or chocolate chips, add now and gently fold to combine.
🔸Heat a large nonstick skillet, griddle, or cast-iron skillet over medium heat. Carefully rub skillet with a little oil. (You will likely need to decrease the heat of the skillet to medium-low / low once it's hot as to not burn the pancakes.)
🔸Once hot, spoon 1/4 - 1/3 cup of the batter onto skillet. Cook until surface of pancakes have some bubbles and the edges appear dry (~2-3 minutes). Carefully flip pancakes and cook until browned on the underside (~3 minutes more). The gluten-free flour blend benefits from a slightly longer cooking time, so don’t be shy to get a nice golden brown color on both sides.
