One of the first things I learned to make when I started reducing my intake of dairy and gluten was pancakes. I discovered I could pretty much swap out the ingredients one by one and they turned out yummy.
So cows milk for non-dairy coconut milk, wheat flour for gluten-free flour and while I still ate organic butter I found you could easily trade this for coconut oil if preferred.
Then I began to experiment. I added a little vanilla extract, sea salt, cinammon, smashed banana and/or blueberries and drizzle over maple syrup or honey. They tasted amazing.
After a while, I decided I wanted to mix things up a little and so I bought a crepe pan. Same ingredients but now I spread the whole mixture out into a thin crepe instead of making several pancakes and it worked.
- 2/3 cup of gluten-free flour or Bobs Red Mills gluten-free flour
- 1 large banana peeled, mashed
- 1 dsp of non-dairy coconut milk
- 1 medium organic free-range egg
- 1 tsp of pure vanilla extract
- 2 tsp unsalted butter or coconut oil
- Maple syrup to taste.
- Melt a knob of butter in a crepe pan or skillet.
- Mash the banana in a bowl, add the eggs, vanilla extract, milk and flour and whisk together.
- Pour the melted butter into the mixture and whisk.
- Melt another knob of butter on the skillet and pour the mixture into the pan and spread thinly to make a crepe.
- Allow to cook on a medium heat for 2-3 minutes then flip and cook for another 2-3 minutes.
- Serve with a little maple syrup to taste.
