So last weekend it was gray and rainy outside and I was cleaning the house, (not my favorite chore, it’s so unsatisfying, don’t you think? As soon as you’re done, you gotta start all over) listening to music is a good option to make it more fun, right? Well, my Ipod played “Banana Pancakes” by Jack Johnson.
Take a listen: Amazon.com: Banana Pancakes: Jack Johnson: MP3 Downloads.
It made me hungry, it made we want to have some, right then and there. I could smell them… So on the list for Saturday Breakfast they go 🙂 As I happily, pj’s and all, was ready to start the project: NO EGGS. What to do now? Option A: get changed and go to the store, option B: figure out how to make it without. It’s Saturday and I really don’t want to face the world, the rain is pouring down here in PA (probably some other leftover part of another tropical storm?) so I went about my quest for egg-less pancakes. There’s a German saying: Not macht erfinderisch (transl: Need makes one inventive 😉
I could have used Bananas as a topping, but there were these peaches on my counter, waiting to be eaten.
A dollop of greek yogurt…
… and a drizzle of maple syrup
Turns out it’s not the eggs at all that make the pancakes fluffy and light, but the baking powder/soda. Good to know
- 1/2 cup whole wheat pastry flour
- 1/2 cup oat flour
- 1 cup (non dairy) milk ( I used almond milk, unsweetened)*
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 1 tblsp (coconut) oil
- 1 tblsp suconat, or sugar, honey (optional)
- 1/2 ripe banana, mashed
