Gluten Free Banana Pancakes

The first year I was on a gluten/dairy free diet, I was also eliminating other foods to see how they affected my rheumatoid arthritis. I was very cautious not to let anything into my diet that was off limits, so I made almost everything I ate. The first year of being on an elimination diet was difficult because I was learning what I could and couldn’t eat. I remember when a good friend sent me this recipe. I made them whenever I needed something sweet. At that time, I was totally avoiding sugar with the exception of small amounts of honey or maple sugar so these worked out perfectly.

It has been a while since I made them, but I am glad I did. They were perfect for this cool fall morning. Alexander and I worked on them together which made them even better!

Banana (Nut) Pancakes
1 1/2 cups rice flour (I used 1/4 tapioca starch, 1/2 cups rice flour and 3/4 cup quinoa flour)
2 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. xanthan gum
1 1/4 cups water
3 Tbsp. oil (I used coconut oil)
2 Tbsp. honey (I used 1 Tbsp of maple syrup)
2 egg yolks
2 bananas, mashed
1/2 cup chopped walnuts (I didn’t add these)
2 egg whites, beaten ’til stiff peaks
Combine dry ingredients in one bowl, wet ingredients in another (except egg whites). Combine wet and dry ingredients and gently fold in egg whites.

Also, last weekend I searched for a cinnamon roll recipe and found this blog. I made a few adjustments to the recipe, but they were awesome! If you are gluten free and crave cinnamon rolls, you have got to try these!

  1. lol well you have gotten lots of use out of those…i think you more than deserve a new set! But since you have had them so long, they are like a family heirloom so don’t break them all.
