Thanks to my friend, Shinichi Mine at Tabieats, I discovered a fellow blogger who suffers from food allergies and shares various recipes targeted for those who are in a similar situation.
She posted an easy and delicious recipe for gluten-free, low sugar, low fat chocolate banana pancakes that I wanted to share with you. With the weekend just around the corner, these pancakes would be an ideal way to start your day!
Gluten Free Chocolate – Banana Pancakes (Makes 10 pancakes)
1 1/2 cup pancake mix, I used The Craving Place All Purpose Pancake & Waffle Mix.
3 Tbsp cocoa powder
1 Tbsp dry sweetener, I used beet sugar
1/2 banana, mashed
1 3/4 – 2 cups water
Additional mini chocolate chips are optional.
In a medium size mixing bowl add dry ingredients, mix well. Add water and mashed banana. Mix well.
Amount of water added really depends on the type of pancake you prefer. More water for a thinner pancake like mine, or less for a thicker, hearty pancake.
Lightly grease or use a non-stick spray on a griddle or large skillet. Heat to medium high.
Add 1/4 cup of pancake batter to hot griddle or pan. Sprinkle a few chocolate chips on top if desired.
Bubbles will form over the top of the pancakes when they are ready to flip over.
Continue cooking opposite side after flipping. Cooking times will vary.
Serve up with syrup, nut butters, and/or sliced fruit.
