Yummy Pancakes!! W/ Granola, berries & maple caramelized bananas

So I’m not really much of a baker but I had to master a pancake I loved because I LOVE PANCAKES!!. I probably shouldn’t admit to that.  I think with this recipe I have nailed it. I usually make a bigger batch than I need for just me and portion the remaining into 3 pancake servings and freeze. These reheat great for on the go.  After cooking them all I let the ones I’m not eating cool on a rack. Once cooled I place the whole rack in the freezer to freeze. Once frozen I then take them out and put in small ziplocks in 3 cake portions. Freezing them ahead of time keeps them from sticking together until you are ready to reheat. Just pop them in a toaster to reheat.

Makes about 12 4in pancakes

Ingredients for pancakes

1.5 cups gluten free flour- I used Bob’s Red Mill one to one

1 Tbs baking powder

1/2 tsp salt

2 Tbs sugar- I like coconut sugar

1 lg banana mashed

1 Tbs coconut oil

1.5 cups non dairy milk

.5 cup water

Optional- .5 cup raw hemp if you want to pump up the protein level

For toppings

Homemade granola recipe link

1/4 cup fresh blueberries per person

1 Tbs vegan butter (optional)

1/2 lg banana per person

1/2 cup maple syrup per person

Directions

1. In a large bowl add all dry pancake ingredients and mix with a whisk.

2. Add coconut oil and mix with whisk or fork to break up into small pieces, mix into flour mix as much as you can. Add mashed banana and milk. Mix well with whisk. If batter is to thick use water to thin adding a little at a time.

3. Heat a large nonstick pan on medium heat. Pour in batter to form 4 inch pancakes. While allowing first side to brown sprinkle granola onto the uncooked side of the pancake. Press into pancake a little. When pancake bubbles and looses its gloss flip with a spatula to brown other side.

4. While pancakes are cooking slice bananas for topping. In an additional nonstick pan add butter and melt. Add bananas and carmelize on at least one side. Pour in maple syrup to heat and reduce a bit.

Place pancakes on a plate, top with more granola, berries and bananas in maple syrup. Can add a bit of “butter” if you like.

Enjoy!!
