Makin’ Banana Pancakes on the weekend or pretend that it’s the weekend, yeah.  These are great for a lazy weekend morning as well easing the Monday morning blues.  I’m not much of a breakfast person during the week but sometimes a little something out of the ordinary in the form of pancakes and espresso is definitely in order.

The best part of this recipe is that it takes less than 10 minutes to prep and you have pancakes in the skillet.  You just throw everything in the blender for a few seconds and that’s it! When I’m making Banana Pancakes it reminds me of Jack Johnson’s – Banana Pancakes song. It sets the mood for the whole day.

I like to layer from wet ingredients to dry for ease of blending.  After blending, the pancake batter should look like the photo below.  I have found that leaving a few bigger pieces creates a lighter, moister texture.

Cooking the pancakes over medium heat seems to work the best because they take a little more time to cook than regular pancakes.  I like to keep them fairly small so that they are easier to flip.  You can see in the photo on the left, they are ready to turn when small bubbles begin to appear in the middle.

Saturday – Sunshine – Syrup – Butter – Espresso.  Have I mentioned espresso enough times all ready?  It’s just that that having sweets for breakfast calls for a rich dark brew.

As you can see, despite being gluten free the crumb on these pancakes is tender and light.

  2. Cook pancakes in a nonstick pan over medium heat. Keep the pancake size to about 4 inches across. Cook for a few minutes until bubbles appear in the center. Flip and cook another minute until middle is done. I like to add a little butter to the pan for easier cooking but this is not strictly necessary.

    Absolutely love these pancakes. I am making them a third time in just one week. I like to make a caramel like sauce for them out of maple syrup and butter heated up together, yumminess. Great photos, I usually burn mine in impatience to eat!
