I LOVE PANCAKES! Fluffy, round circles of bliss and joy. Add fruit, syrups and whipped cream and I am pure heaven.
Because most pancakes have milk and eggs I haven’t had them very much lately. I decided to go online to find vegan pancake recipes. I found hundreds. However, I didn’t have any of the ingredients in my home. I was not going to spend my entire $25 per week grocery budget on pancake ingredients, so I had to dig a little deeper. Most of the pancakes called for oat flour. Why not just grind some oats? So I did. Most people just replace eggs with ripened bananas. Why not just do that? So I did. Here is what I came up with.
- 2 c oatmeal flour (grind oats in blender or coffee grinder)
- 2 ripened bananas (mashed)
- 1 T coconut sugar
- 1 c non-dairy milk of your choice (i used vanilla almond-coconut)
- all the cinnamon, nutmeg and vanilla you want
I should have mashed the bananas before mixing them into the dry ingredients, but I didn’t. So don’t do what I did, do what I should have done. Mash the bananas with the milk and spices. Add the coconut sugar with the oat flour. Now add the wet with the dry. Full disclosure, I hate baking. This is not baking, but it kinda is.
I added the tiniest amount of coconut oil to the pan and cooked the pancakes at a time.
I made a large batch so I could freeze some and have them all week. Each day, they turned out beautifully. They tasted a little heavier than the fluffy pancakes I am used, but they were really good. It has the texture of a muffin. I think I will make them this way from now own.
I know this picture doesn’t look very good. Just trust me, they are delish!! I topped them with sliced bananas, melted peanut butter, maple syrup and lots of cinnamon. Most morning I had a cup of hot tea as well.
