5 minute fluffy mini pancakes

Main (blog) 2

I love pancakes in every form and shape and have tried a lot of gluten-free recipes. They have all been okay but have been a bit on the dry side. These are nice, moist (sorry, can’t think of another word) and super fluffy. They are delicious on their own but for a treat I top it with jam, apple sauce or strawberry compote with fresh fruit. This recipe serves 2 regular people for breakfast if you add fruit and an egg on the side.



2 bananas, mashed (I mush mine while still inside the peel to save time)

2 eggs (or you could try to add another banana or “flax seed egg” to make it vegan)

1 tsp baking powder

1 tsp cinnamon (optional)

4 tbsp buckwheat flour

1 handful of blueberries (excellent too if you have blueberries which got a bit old and wrinkled, NOBODY will know)

TIP: Top it with raw boysenberry jam, apple-sauce (either shop both natural, no added sugar, or home-made), fresh fruit, a little glucose syrup or strawberry compote.

Heat up a pan to medium to high heat. Combine all the ingredients and spoon onto the pan. Turn when the mixture starts to bubble slightly, take off the pan 10 seconds later. Done!

  2. […] We don’t quite have daffodils here in New Zealand for Easter as it’s autumn but I can’t wait for our little girl to be old enough to chase around the garden looking for eggs. For now, I spoiled my wonderful husband and daughter with some fluffy pancakes and hid a naughty chocolate egg in my hubby’s pancake (melted) and served with fruit this morning. Delicious AND sugar/gluten/dairy-free. If you want the recipe, click here. […]
