Gluten-Free, 5 ingredient pancakes!

Growing up, I definitely indulged in my fair share of crepes and pancakes – I mean, is there really anything better than fresh pancakes drizzled with maple syrup? These just might be the next best thing though (not to mention the fact that they’re actually healthy – and gluten free!). Who ever said pancakes were only for cheat days?

What you’ll need:

  1. 1 large banana
  2. 1/2 cup of oats
  3. 1 egg (if you want to make this recipe vegan, try subbing the egg for a flax egg by combining 1 tbsp of ground flax seeds with 3 tbsp water – stir well, and place in the fridge to set for 15 minutes)
  4. 1/8 teaspoon baking powder
  5. Pinch of cinnamon

How to make the pancakes:

  1. Mash banana in a bowl;
  2. Grind up oats in food processor and add to mashed banana;
  3. Add in egg and mix well;
  4. Add in baking powder and cinnamon;
  5. Heat up a pan with butter (you can also use olive oil or avocado oil);
  6. Add batter to pan (a few tbsp at a time, depending on how large or small you want your pancakes);
  7. Cook on each side for 2-4 mins;
  8. Top off with some sliced bananas, fresh berries, almond butter, some maple syrup and enjoy!
