We love pancakes in my house, and I love to make healthy versions when I can. This recipe for gluten free pancakes fits those requirements perfectly, and it's one I turn to over and over again. They're naturally sweet, delicious pancakes that are full of banana flavor and kid approved.
The pancakes are dairy free, gluten free, refined sugar free, can also be made nut free. They're simple to prepare and also freeze wonderfully! I like to make a double batch and keep leftovers in the refrigerator for a few days for busy weekday mornings.
Refrigerated leftovers can be reheated in the toaster or the microwave for about 45 seconds. Frozen pancakes can be heated in the microwave for about a minute and a half depending on your microwave.
These are great served with some fresh berries and Coconut Whipped Creme, maple syrup, or sugar-free syrup if you're watching your carbohydrate intake. For extra protein I like to serve them with a side of chicken or turkey sausage, or some bacon.
