If you read my article from yesterday, you know that I experienced a loss in my kitchen and for my family. But today I won. What was that win? Green Banana Flour Pancakes!
Like with waffles, I have tried time and time again to find a good recipe that simply works. I cannot even begin to tell you how many different pancake recipes I have gone through to find one that will cook up like a traditional pancake I was used to making. And between Low FODMAP and AIP (Autoimmune Protocol), most paleo flours are out of the question. No almond flour. No coconut flour. But we have found that there is one flour that we can all have. Green banana flour.
Yes, you read that right — Green banana flour. This flour is super fine and almost has a chocolaty taste to it when mixed with other ingredients. Not only does the flour perform super well, it’s incredibly good for you and is one of the better sources for resistant starch, similar to tiger nut flour.
So I made these super simple pancakes today and they were absolutely divine. They cooked up exactly like a pancake is supposed to, and they tasted even better. They disappeared off the plate as fast as I could make them. What a great treat and a fabulous way to have a win, especially for my kids. I hope you enjoy them as much as we do!
GREEN BANANA FLOUR PANCAKES
- 1 cup green banana flour
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 cup canned pumpkin
- 1/2 cup water
- 3/4 cup coconut milk
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
- 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1 tablespoon pure maple syrup
- Pour the flour in a medium bowl, add the baking soda and stir to combine. Add in the remaining ingredients and stir to get an even doughy mixture (don’t overmix!)
- Heat a non-stick pan or griddle and add about 1/4 cup of the batter to form a pancake. Let it cook for 1–2 minutes until the edges get golden brown and bubbles form on top. Flip and cook for another 1–2 minutes on the other side. Repeat.
- Serve warm with a drizzle of pure maple syrup, homemade jam, banana slices or other fruits of choice.
*NOTE — When pancakes are hot off the griddle, use parchment paper on the plate, otherwise they will stick to the plate.
