How to Make Plantain Flour Pancakes
These Paleo pancakes are made in one bowl and cooked on a frying pan.
First, make the flax eggs. This recipe requires two flax eggs, each being 1 tablespoon ground flax + 3 tablespoons water. So, all together that would be 2 tablespoons ground flax + 6 tablespoons water. Mix with a fork, then let the flax eggs sit for 5 minutes to thicken.
Next, combine all ingredients in a large mixing bowl. Mix until well combined. The batter is thick and goopy, but makes for amazing pancakes!
Preheat a frying pan on medium heat. Grease the pan with a bit of oil (I used coconut oil). Then, scoop about one heaping tablespoon of the batter onto the pan. Use a spatula or spoon to flatten the batter and smooth it out to the size you want your pancake to be.
Cover and cook on medium heat, flipping once the bottom is golden brown. If you’re having trouble flipping the pancakes, then cook them longer before flipping. You may need to turn down the heat a bit as well.
I like to cover my pancakes when cooking them because I think it helps trap moisture, keep them fluffy and evenly cook the pancake. However, this step is not required. Another thing to note: these pancakes take longer to cook than a “normal” pancake. They do cook through, but are moist and soft on the inside.
These green banana flour pancakes taste great on their own, but you can top them with any of your favorite pancake toppings. This particular batch was topped with honey, hemp seeds and cinnamon and eaten alongside a few blackberries.
