banana buttermilk pancakes

I know I promised everyone Champagne Thursdays. Really. I’m not changing that, I’m just skipping this Thursday is all.

I blame pancakes.

Warm, buttery, fluffy gluten-free pancakes with maple syrup.

I couldn’t shake the craving. I woke up with a hankering for them that was undeniable & I just had to fulfill it.

I’m sorry. I know I said we’d get a little light headed & enjoy a break from the mid-week work load together, & we will. Just not today.

You can’t blame me when it comes to buttermilk banana pancakes.

I haven’t had a pancake since before I found out that there would be no more gluten. I didn’t dare allow myself to dream that there could ever be pancakes again! But this morning, this morning I couldn’t take it any longer. I made what I had previously thought to be impossible, possible.

I’m in heaven. Maple syrup & warm banana heaven.

Ingredients: (makes 10)
– 280g gluten-free oat flour
– 40g buckwheat flour
– 40g almond meal
– 40g gluten-free plain white flour blend
– 2 tsp baking powder
– 0.75 tsp salt
– 2 tsp cinnamon
– 0.5 tsp xanthan gum
– 250ml buttermilk
– 500ml water
– 2 eggs
– 64g unsalted butter, melted
– 45g light brown sugar
– 2 bananas, peeled & cut into small pieces (do not mash)
– maple syrup

1. combine all of the dry ingredients in a large bowl & whisk together to ensure they are properly combined. Set aside.
2. in a separate bowl, whisk the brown sugar, butter & eggs together. Add the water & buttermilk next & continue to whisk.
3. pour the wet ingredients into the dry & whisk until there are no more dry lumps. Gently fold in the bananas last.
4. bring a large saucepan up to medium-high heat on the stove. Add a little vegetable oil or butter to the pan to prevent your pancakes from sticking.
5. Using a ladle, pour a ladle full of batter into your pan. Light the pan & tilt it to encourage the pancakes to spread in a circular form (you will not have perfect circles due to the banana chunks). When the pancake has a nice even coating of tiny holes open up across the top, it is ready to be flipped over. Allow to cook for another minute or two before transferring onto a plate & starting on the next.
