Banana Nut Pancakes

1 banana (large mashed)
1 3/4 cup soymilk (or other milk…I used almond)
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1 Tablespoon honey or agave nectar
2 cups gluten free flour
4 tsps baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 cup chopped almonds

mix all the ingredients together for a smoothish mix. heat griddle or other pan on medium high. add pancake batter when you see the bubbles flip and cook til cooked through and golden brown.

the orignial recipe from food.com was for banana nut waffles. i made these delights for a camping trip and tried one on my waffle iron before we left…I’m really glad that i did. The batter didn’t clump together at all and made a mess of the waffle iron. As a pancake however, they were perfect.

In my head these pancakes will forever be called Birthday Banana Nut Pancakes. I made them for a camping trip with friends to celebrate my 30th birthday. The camping trip didn’t go quite as plannned–meaning we were asked not to spend a second night in the campground and be out first thing in the morning(thats a whole separate story). However, we rallied–a minor change of plans but the weekend was a success. instead of enjoying these pancakes in the great outdoors they were enjoyed in my friends parents kitchen. We huddled around the table laughing enjoying the food and fellowship. I will definitly make these again, and each time will think fondly about the first time I enjoyed these.

these are gluten and dairy free and vegan.
