Cinnamon Banana Waffles

banana-egg-oat pancake

My husband thanks you too! I've been wanting to try making gluten free pancakes for a while now and finally had the perfect opportunity this weekend. These were absolutely incredible Thanks for the great recipe!! Then I added some cinnamon, ground cloves and nutmeg. They were so tasty! I'm so grateful to have a pancake recipe that doesn't require 4 different kinds of flour. I'm sensitive to sweeteners of any kind, so I skipped the tbs.

An addendum to my previous comment: I've made this recipe now with teff, buckwheat, and sorghum flours, and each batch has come out just as delicious as the previous one. Thank you for coming up with such a versatile and tasty recipe! Do we need a teflon pan for this? We use stainless steel pans and pancakes stick terribly.

I even went so far as to buy a tiny teflon pan and see if I could make better pancakes with it. I certainly did but it took 1 hour to make 8 pancakes! What kind of pans do you use for these? Megan - I use a inch stainless steel skillet with a heavy bottom. The key is to heat the skillet for a while before adding any oil or batter. I never use non-stick. Let me know how they turn out. I just made your Teff Pancakes, although I couldn't help myself from making a few substitutions because of the ingredients I had on hand, etc!

I used white rice flour instead of tapioca flour, a small egg instead of flax decreased the water to 1 cup , decreased the coconut oil to 1 T, left out the honey and threw in a Truvia packet, left out the salt as I try to eat low sodium if possible, and added 2 T of mini-chocolate chips. I count calories, and they ended up being about 2 calories per gram. Thank you so much for the recipe. Can't wait to try your teff bread next!

I whipped up a batch for breakfast, after a refreshing run, and then took the extras to work the next day for lunch! I ate mine with a little peanut butter: I made these for my daughter yesterday and she gobbled them right up. I don't know if her body liked them however. She's been having some digestive issues since. Hopefully that's just because it's new. Fingers crossed because we all love pancakes and I feel sad when she can't enjoy too. You certainly did perfect this recipe. I'm not a huge pancake-maker, if fact, this may have been the first time I made pancakes, but after browsing for recipes with which to use teff flour, I came across these pancakes.

Lounging at home on a foggy, cold, San Franciscan morning, I just whipped them up and they are perfect. I'm going to check out your blog now as I enjoy them with a smile on my face: Thank you so much for this recipe. I have so many food allergies and these turned out so well, it's great to have a recipe for pancakes I can actually eat!

I made pancakes out of half and cooked a few in the waffle maker and they turned out great as well. They remind me of gingerbread - maybe next time I'll add cinnamon and ginger and molasses and go with it! I noticed you use tapioca flour in most of your baking. What does it do and if I omit it what will happen? I am new to GF and when I was buying my pantry list at the health food store they were out of tapioca flour!

Is there a replacement for this flour? I was just gifted a blend tec food mill and am loving all the flours I can create, including Teff Flour that was otherwise unavailable to me. Looking forward to making these for the morning. Would canned pumpkin work in place of the banana in these? My daughter is a huge fan of pumpkin and I'm thinking she might really like these with pumpkin in them. I may try the banana version for myself. I made these this morning and they were awesome!

I used applesauce instead of the banana, added a dash of cinnamon, and used half a cup of canned coconut milk and half a cup of water and they turned out great. Thanks for the recipe! Have you tried substituting chia seed for flaxseed? Think it will work? Just wanted to share in case anyone else is in the same boat. I recently discovered that my 2 year old doesn't tolerate coconut, so I made these with grapeseed oil instead. These are hands-down the best GF pancakes I have made. Actually, the best pancakes period, with or without gluten.

Now we rarely make any other kind. Thank you for such delicious, healthy recipes! Wow, these were so good!! It will be a go-to recipe for us. It was my first pancake since going gluten free ;.

Do you soak the teff flour over night in all of your teff recipes? I ask because I don't want to ruin the recipe and I also read that teff is low in phytic acid. Perhaps soaking this flour is not necessary?

Thanks for your help! These pancakes are amazing!!! Fluffy and perfect consistency. I warmed some coconut oil on a skillet then added chopped super ripe bananas and maple syrup and poured it over the pancakes. Out of the world good!!!! Thank you for sharing this recipe. I just came across your site while looking for Elimination Diet recipes. I made these this morning and am in heaven.

I was recently diagnosed with allergies to soy, wheat, dairy and egg so when my naturopath suggested teff flour, i found these! Hi Ali, I have lost a recipe I got in one of your classes and it is not published in any of your books I have all of them nor on this website. I love it and am desperate for it! It was called something like Lemon Scented Almond Cake or??? Does that ring a bell?

I would love to get the recipe again. I serve it with strawberries on top and am hoping to do so again with strawberries coming soon! I have made these pancakes many many times and love them! Last week I made a small change that came out well. I used my vitamix to make fresh teff and amaranth flours and then used them equally in the recipe.

It came out really yummy and the amaranth adds a great deal of nutrition to this already healthy recipe. I'd love to hear your feedback with my recipes. If you make any changes or substitutions then please share what you did so others can learn. If you have a question about a recipe, please leave it here.

I will do my best to answer it when I have time. Comment moderation is in place. Your comment will be only be visible here once I publish it. Thanks and Happy Cooking! Monday, March 2, Teff Banana Pancakes. I am about to divulge another secret recipe. A sweet, nutritious little breakfast treat. Naturally gluten-free of course! Even those of you not following a gluten-free diet will enjoy these cakes.

They are also egg-free making them perfect for older babies and toddlers. Our 14 month old twins began eating these a few months ago and love them. In fact, if we have leftovers, I will pack them in a to-go container and take them for them to snack on during our outings.

I like to eat them topped with a dollop of raw almond butter and a tall glass of fresh green smoothie on the side. In fact, this is my perfect pre-workout meal. Clean burning fuel that doesn't weigh you down. Ok, so now the recipe. Tom is doing the dishes now and talking and talking to me while I am trying to write.

He just got back from an Autism conference in Vancouver yesterday and has lots of new information to talk about. Really fascinating new research on this subject. But first look forward to yet another teff recipe this week. A scrumptious Yeasted Teff Sandwich Bread -- coming soon! It is rich in minerals, particularly iron. When ground into flour, these minerals become more available.

These pancakes will give you staying power until lunchtime, especially if combined with a green smoothie. For more banana punch, try chopping up a small banana and fold it into the batter. Also, now that my twins are eating these and they can eat a lot I need to make a double batch.

In a separate bowl or liquid measuring cup, whisk together the wet ingredients. Add the wet ingredients to the dry and whisk together. Heat a stainless steel skillet over medium-low heat until hot. Add a little coconut oil. Flip pancake after tiny bubbles form. Cook for another minute then transfer to a plate. Follow us on Facebook! Subscribe to this Blog!

Beta-blockers , a type of medication most commonly prescribed for heart disease, can cause potassium levels to increase in the blood. High potassium foods such as bananas should be consumed in moderation when taking beta-blockers. Consuming too much potassium can be harmful for those whose kidneys are not fully functional.

If your kidneys are unable to remove excess potassium from the blood, it could be fatal. Examples include certain beta-blockers such as Labetalol, medications that work by blocking the actions of the hormone aldosterone such as Lisinopril and Losartan, and certain diuretics like Spironolactone and Eplerenone.

This is a partial list only, and you should consult with your doctor if potassium levels become a concern. Some people may have an allergy to bananas. If anyone with a banana allergy eats a banana, they may experience symptoms in the mouth and throat such as itching, hives , swelling and wheezing.
