Banana Oat Pancakes

Excellent early morning! I’m sitting cross-legged on my hotel bed in San Antonio, beside a huge window ignoring the Tower of Americas. It’s so cloudy I can hardly see the top of it. The fog in my head is gradually raising as I drink on my cup of coffee, and I simply scraped the last littles my “100% natural, extremely premium” (what does that indicate?) immediate oatmeal off the sides of its non reusable cup with a plastic fork. It’s okay.

That oatmeal and these images of fluffy banana pancakes take me back to last Saturday, when I took my time making breakfast, with Cookie by my feet. Cookie likes bananas nearly as much as she likes cheese, did you understand that? I could not withstand making her twirl around on her back feet for bites of banana. In some cases I believe she left from the circus, that pet dog.

To my enjoyable surprise, I recognized that the pancakes acquired oatmeal’s velvety texture thanks to the oat flour, which the bananas contributed such a charming, natural sweet taste that they barely required any syrup. I topped my banana pancakes with sliced banana, toasted coconut flakes and a drizzle of maple syrup, however peanut butter or coconut butter would be a natural fit also.

Gluten-free notes: These pancakes are gluten-free, so long as you utilized licensed gluten-free oat flour or licensed gluten-free old-fashioned oats.
* How to make your own oat flour: To make oat flour out of old-fashioned oats, just put one cup of oats into a food mill and procedure up until it is ground well.
Preparation suggestions: This entire grain batter is thicker than many, so it’s harder to evaluate when the pancakes are all set to turn. I discovered that it’s simpler to pass the timer: set it for for 3 minutes for the very first side, then turn and wait another 90 seconds for the opposite to complete. The time will differ depending upon your temperature level setting, however that has to do with the time it ought to consider pancakes that are completely prepared and golden on each side.
Freeze it: These pancakes freeze well. (I have actually never ever satisfied a pancake that does not.) Commenter Megan had all the best making the batter the night in the past, cooling it over night, and continuing with the dish the next early morning (include a splash of milk to thin out the batter).
Make it dairy totally free: Simply utilize coconut oil rather of butter.

Make it egg totally free: Change the eggs with flax eggs (I have actually heard this works well from other commenters, however have not had a possibility to attempt myself).
