Organic spelt flour does not change the flavor of the pancake as much as whole wheat, but offers the benefit of additional fiber. With all the processed foods being offered to my kids daily, I thought it might be helpful to get something healthy into their diet as often as possible. No complaint from the kids here!
- 2 cups spelt flour
- 2 tablespoons baking powder (not aluminum based)
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 1 1⁄2 ripe bananas, mashed
- 1 3⁄4 cups water
- 1 egg (optional)
- 1 teaspoon maple syrup (optional)
- 3 tablespoons oil
- Whisk together dry ingredients in a medium bowl.
- In a smaller bowl whisk together the liquids.
- Preheat griddle.
- When a drop of water 'dances' on it, pour liquids over flour mixture and stir to moisten.
- Oil griddle. Spoon batter onto griddle in 4 to 6-inch cakes.
- Turn when top side is thoroughly bubbled. Serve immediately.
I followed the recipe exactly and they were delicious!
This is a very good and dependable recipe. Follow recipe eactly using coconut oil and have not once been disappointed. I only had one banana this last time and they still turned out wonderful. Also, they are very good with some fresh blueberries sprinkled on top before flipping the pancakes.
These are fantastic! Worked great in my waffle iron. Some recipes don't work as pancakes and waffles. The first time that I made them I used freshly pureed pumpkin instead of banana, some pumpkin pie spice, skipped the egg, and threw in a tbsp some freshly ground flaxseed and 3 tbsp of filtered water. I have used banana ever since though. Both ways work great! Did use maple syrup in them, and used coconut oil . I usually add vanilla and cinnamon. I omitted the salt. Thanks so much!
