Yum yum yum yum yum.
Really and truly.
Vegan Coco-nana Pancakes
- 1/2 cup whole grain flour (I used Bob’s Red Mill 10 Grain flour)
- 1/2 cup coconut flour (I used Tropical Traditions)
- 2 tsp baking powder
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 cup almond milk
- 1/2 cup water
- 1 banana, mashed
First mash the banana in the mixing bowl, then add the rest of the ingredients. Adjust liquids to get desired consistency. Scoop into sprayed pan.
Why do the first pancakes always end up a little more burnt than the rest of the batch?
Vegan pancakes mean no eggs, no milk, and no butter. However, rather than make the typical exchanges (chia seeds/flax seeds for eggs, Earth Balance in lieu of butter, etc.), I resorted to the most simple and basic of ingredients. Banana! This fruit is amazingly versatile because it offers sweetness (no sugar needed), fluff (no egg necessary), and a fantastically gooey texture (without any added oils/fats). All this from one friggin’ banana! Who’da thunk it?!?
This batter yielded 6 pancakes.
I heated up some frozen blueberries to add on top.
And that’s all they needed! The coconut flour made for a superb flavor which worked out great with the banana. Coconut and bananas…it’s like I’m on a tropical island vacation.
I had all six, obviously. [And still had room for a fatty latte the size of my head]
Purple fingers? Yup. I was smuggling some bloobs on the side.
Note: blueberry smuggling is not to be confused with plum smuggling (look it up if you’re so inclined).
Like I said, yum yum yum yum yum yum.
And now for the waffle winners…the two randomly chosen comments were by:
Lauren who wrote “Took the survey! As a Gfree vegan and IBS sufferer, this waffle mix sounds too good to be true!! So exciting :)”
Debbie who said “Survey Complete! I sure hope I don’t have to go on vacation to be able to eat these!! Having such a great mix to whip up waffles for my grandchildren would be fabulous!!”
