Dairy & Gluten Free Pancakes : No fuss breakfast wisdom

Tuesday, 24 May 2016

I just adore pancakes, and my must have treat when we visit Canada is going out for breakfast as often as I can persuade my husband to and indulging in a big stack, my favourite being chocolate and peanut butter chip! So it was particularly difficult on our trip back in May last year when I couldn't indulge myself because I was still breast feeding my then diary free baby, however I have been experimenting with a dairy/gluten free version at home and these ones I made a while ago got a big thumbs up not just me but from the girls too.

I love these because they are quick, easy and not loaded with ingredients that are going to upset your body or throw it off balance (unlike the ones I like to treat myself to while on holiday!), it's a simple breakfast that is good for mind body and soul! Lately I have also been asked by lots of people to share the recipe so here it is - enjoy, let me know how what you think! 

You will need:

1 x Ripe Banana
1 x Cup of Almond Milk (Or whatever milk substitute you like to use)
1 x Cup of Gluten Free Flour
1/2 x tbsp of Rice Syrup (You can use whatever sugar you like here and if you like them sweeter then add more, we are trying to lower our sugar consumption!)
1 x tsp of Baking Powder
1 x tsp of Cinnamon
1 x tsp of Vanilla Extract

Firstly mix all your dry ingredients in a bowl - so that's the flour, baking powder and cinnamon (this is where you would add your sugar if you are using a granulated version). Then slowly mash in your banana and rice syrup along with the milk, with dry ingredients adding a little bit of milk at a time, you may find that you don't need to use the whole cup. You will then need to give it a good stir until it becomes a pancake batter consistency and now you're all ready to cook, it's so simple! We use coconut oil in a big frying pan and a ladle to measure out the amounts of batter and served with Maple Syrup (of course!), blueberries and freshly picked strawberries from our garden!


  1. This looks totally yum! We love pancakes in our house but I usually opt out because I find them too much for my tum, I have them rarely but love them! Will definitely try these xo

  2. Let me know what you think Lizzie! x
