Sugar-free Banana Pancakes

on

Since I have taken the sugar-free challenge, I really have not been able to fully stick to it. But it’s that innate sweet craving that haunts us all. Here is a simple recipe for banana pancakes, that are sure to satisfy that sugary itch.

  • Ingredients:
    • 1 large banana
    • 1 egg
    • 2 Tbsp AP flour
    • 2 Tbsp whole wheat flour (or oat flour, will yield a darker and “faltter” pancake though)
    • 1/3 cup dried cranberries (or raisins)
    • 1 to 2 Tbsp whole milk (or almond milk)
    • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
    • 1 tsp vegetable oil (or coconut oil or 1 Tbsp of melted butter)
    • 1 tsp vanilla extract
    • 1/2 tsp salt
    • 1/2 tsp cinnamon (optional)
  • Method:
    1. Peel the banana and mash it with a fork in a medium sized mixing bowl. It’s okay if it is not perfectly smooth.
    2. Add the egg and whisk until some bubbles form.
    3. Mix the dry ingredients together (both flours, baking powder, cinnamon and salt) and then add them to the wet ingredients. Fold gently.
    4. Add the milk and vanilla extract, a splash at a time until you get a thick, flowy batter.
    5. Add the oil and continue to mix gently until flour is moistened but still retains a few tiny lumps.
    6. Pour about three tablespoons of the batter in the center of a non-stick pan that it set on medium-low heat.
    7. Drop some dried cranberries or raisins on the raw pancake side as it cooks.
    8. Once the edges begin to look dry and you see bubbles forming, flip the pancakes over and cook on the other side for about half the time that you cooked it for on the first side.
    9. Repeat the steps until you finish the batter.
    10. Build your stack and dress it with some fresh fruit, dried, fruit, nuts, some honey or sugar-free applesauce. 😉
    11. Enjoy!
