Banana Spice Pancakes

1/2 c. all-purpose gluten free baking mix
1 egg
2 ripe organic bananas
1 t. vanilla (organic/fair trade)
1/2 t. non aluminum baking powder
dash 50-50 cinnamon/cayenne
1 t. cinnamon
dash nutmeg
1/4 c. water
1 T. organic virgin coconut oil or extra virgin coconut oil (frying)
1 T. honey or agave nectar

Combine all dry ingredients in a large bowl. Stir in beaten egg, water, and vanilla, mixing well. Stir in the cinnamon-cayenne and nutmeg. Drizzle in the agave nectar (or honey). Slice or mash in the banana and mix the batter until it is smooth.

Melt the coconut oil (or olive oil) in a large frying pan and preheat the pan to medium heat (5). Once the oil is melted, turn the heat down to 3 or 4 and spoon in batter. Cook 2 minutes until the sides bubble. Flip and cook another 2-3 minutes. Serve with a dash of cinnamon, or your choice of fresh fruit topping, Smart Balance Vegan butter, honey, or agave nectar.

1/4 c. porridge and/or 1/4 c. raw cranberries

Cindalou's Kitchen Blues: Healthy Celiac / Coeliac Gluten and Dairy Free Recipes


  1. Cindy- These look yummy. I wonder if they'd hold together without the one egg? I imagine the banana helps to bind the batter... What do you think?


  2. Thanks Karina, and yes these hold together fine without the egg. I just got lazy and used egg this time since I am less sensitive to eggs (for now).

  3. These look fabulous!

    Sometimes when I'm trying to reduce or eliminate my eggs for a while I'll use flax eggs.

    I'm really happy to see when other people are also promoting organic and fair trade too.

    Kind regards,

  4. These look so tasty, wish I had a big pile right now! Just for the record, you may want to add that the vanilla should be gluten-free as well. The alcohol (grain-based) would make it a nightmare for us gluten-intolerants!!!
