If you have bananas that are too ripe to eat, don't throw them away! Make gluten-free pancakes instead. Puréed bananas and maple syrup help sweeten these pancakes that are so light and fluffy, you'll never want to make anything else.

Preparation

  1. Combine chia, flaxmeal, oats, and oat flour in a medium mixing bowl and add the almond milk (or water if preferred). Allow mixture to soak for at least 1 hour at room temperature or store it in the refrigerator overnight.
  2. Mix in remaining ingredients right before cooking and stir until batter is smooth. Heat a large skillet or pancake griddle over medium heat (about 325°F) and grease it lightly with oil. Pour 1/3 cup size scoops onto griddle and spread with a spatula then cook for 3-4 minutes per side, until dark golden brown.
  3. Serve hot with your favorite pancake toppings.

Notes

If you don't have oat flour you can simply pulse 3 cups of oats in a food processor of blender until fine.
