6-8 Bananas, overripe
1-2 c. Rice Flour
Lemon Juice (optional)
- Mash up the bananas in a bowl
- Add about a cup of rice flour to the bananas as they are being mixed (prepare for little floury explosions)
- Preheat the coconut oil in a pan
- Put some rice flour in your hand and scoop some banana on top of it.
- Cover the banana in your hand in rice flour
- Brush off any extra rice flour and make sure the banana is covered enough to make a non sticky to the touch glob
- Put glob (which should resemble a pancake) in the pan and let it brown.
- When the bottom side has browned, flip it.
- When it has browned on both sides, it is done.
- Serve with lemon juice, honey, and cinnamon if it pleases you.
As you can see from the first picture, the banana was way too sloppy to just coat in rice flour. So, I added a bunch of flour in with the banana, and then coated it as well.
These took forever to make. I made 6 and got bored with making them, so I made a "banana cake"... which is where I basically put the ricey banana flour in a cast iron pan with some coconut oil to keep it from sticking. It wasn't nearly as good as these pancakes. I don't recommend doing it that way.
Also, this is gluten-free, vegetarian, vegan, and most other dietary restrictions-an.
The taste was good on the individual pancakes, but they were really quite time consuming. I mean, it wasn't too terrible, pancakes take a while as it is, and I rarely have the patience for them. But, if you have the patience and the leftover bananas, give it a go! I'm sure regular flour would work too, but I can't have wheat flour, so I used the rice flour.
These were super tasty. TC gave them a 5 with the lemon juice. He said the honey might be overkill.
I gave them a 4.5 with the lemon juice, but I liked the honey and cinnamon.
