Wow that was a long title! My BFFE and future wwoofing companion, Elizabeth, has inspired me to see what gluten-free can do for me! These vegan gluten-free banana walnut coconut, and did I say DELISH? pancakes are for her (and her cutie twin)!
Start with homegrown bananas…
Mix buckwheaties and oats in the blender to make a gluten-free flour. Add bananas, hand-crushed walnuts, non-sweetened shredded coconut, coconut oil, molasses, vanilla, and enough water to achieve batter consistency.
Pan fry in coconut oil. I found it helpful to make smaller sized pancakes with this recipe. Whenever I make pancakes, I remember making them as a kid for my family (from Bisquick, no less) and my mom scolding me because I pressed them flat with the spatula. “I like my pancakes fluffy,” she chastised. Well Mom, unfortunately, with this recipe, you must squish. It was difficult to get the middle cooked through without the outsides getting burned no matter how low the heat. So squish away!
They turned out marvelous: nutty and sweet and stuck together well. I topped them with more walnuts, coconut and a little syrup.
Feliz Cinco de Mayo!
