Recipe: Gluten Free Chocolate Banana Pancakes
January 18, 2011 § 2 Comments
Today, I noticed I had several overripe bananas and I hate to throw away food. Instead, I remembered a pancake recipe I saw but adapted it based on what I had in the house.
1 cup cooked quinoa
1 cup unsweetened almond milk
1 cup water
1/2 cup buckwheat flour
1/2 cup ground flaxseed
1/4 cup hemp protein
1/2 cup raw cacao powder
1/2 teaspoon aluminum free baking powder (like Rumsford)
Mix bananas through cacao powder in a blender until smooth. Heat coconut oil on low-medium heat. Drop 1/4 cup of batter per pancake.
These are pretty delicate. It may take a few pancakes to get it going. A nice addition would have been some dark chocolate chips. I had them in the house too!!
Here’s the batch I made today:
