GF Buckwheat Almond Banana Pancakes

GF Buckwheat Almond Banana Pancakes

As the weather is getting nicer and we take our fitness goals outdoors, it is important to have a hearty dense meal to fuel our longer runs, rides, hikes or swims. I am guilty of always changing a recipe, so this is a combination of 3 that have satisfied my palette and my caloric needs before a long run.

Dry Ingredients:

  • 1 cup Buckwheat flour
  • ½ cup Amaranth flour
  • ¾ cup Almond meal (walnut & hazelnut optional)
  • 1 ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • ¾ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon

Wet Ingredients:                                                               

  • 1 cup banana, mashed (usually 3 bananas)
  • 1 ½ cup almond milk
  • 2 large organic eggs
  • 2-3 tablespoons butter or coconut oil
  • 2-3 tablespoons maple syrup 

Instructions:

I love to cook my pancakes on a cast iron crepe pan on low-medium heat or temperature of 3-4. You can also use a heavy-bottomed stainless steel skillet on medium heat. For pancakes it is really important to let the pan heat for a few minutes on the stove before using it, so your pancakes don’t stick.

Whisk together dry ingredients in a medium-sized mixing bowl. Add the wet ingredients and whisk together again.

Ladle batter into pan and cook 1-2 minutes or less on each side, depending on your stove top. Add a little coconut oil or butter onto pan before adding more batter as you cook. 

Kitchen Tips:

* Nut meals can be very expensive. I buy large bags of whole nuts and grind in a ninja or food processor. Almond meal, walnut meal and pecan meal are my favourites.

* Extra twist: Add 2 teaspoons freshly grated nutmeg for a punch of flavour

* Egg Allergy? No problem. You can use chia seeds or flax seeds mixed in water as an egg replacer.

One egg replacer:   

  • 1 Tbsp of chia seed or flax seed
  • 3 Tbsp of warm-hot water

Whisk immediately and let sit for 5 minutes until it gels, then add to your baking.

* Alternative: Substitute ½ cup almond milk and maple syrup with ½ cup french vanilla coconut creamer
