In addition, these gluten free and grain free delights are EASY to make and have only two ingredients: a banana and eggs.. I decorated the plate with some berries and cinnamon, but believe me they didn't anything extra for flavor.
I love these pancakes because they are not heavy or doughy and are light and easy to digest. So, you won't walk away with that heavy pancake feeling. Truly these pancakes make a delicious, light, healthy breakfast. They are perfect pancakes for those who follow a gluten free diet, for those watching their weight, and for those who want to avoid grain.
It is also fun to make silver dollar pancakes with little kids because it's so easy.
I made this recipe into seven normal size pancakes , but they could also make two or three large crepes.
If you make the recipe into a crepe, it can be filled with cottage cheese, berries, or just eat it plain. You won't be disappointed.
1 large yellow banana ( no, you can't use a small banana or too ripe a banana)
2 large eggs ( no, you can't use egg whites or not even a combination of egg and egg white)
Olive oil or coconut oil spray
Break up banana and put into a blender. Add eggs. Blend until smooth.
Spray a large skillet, pour batter into the pan over a low heat. Allow to firm up on one side ( takes about 1 minute) and then flip for about 30 seconds or until dry. Makes 6 pancakes..
Why grain free?
Being gluten intolerant, I can't eat the following grains: wheat, rye, and barley. However, there are many people who follow a grain free diet and eat no grain at all!! I was interested in understanding more about a grain free diet and it's benefits, so I did some research. According to a post in a blog called 10 Reasons to Give up Grains on a blog called , The Nourished Kitchen it turns out that all grains, including rice, oats, etc. can be hard to digest and therefore
- cause inflammation in the system
- cause problems in the gut
- cause problems with the joints
- cause problems with the skin
- and are addictive for many people ( I know carbs are addictive for me)
