Key Elements to Vegan and Gluten Free Banana, Blueberry Pancakes

There are two KEY elements to this recipe that make these vegan, gluten-free pancakes fluffy perfection!

KEY # ONE:
Gluten Free Flour Blend:

Not all gluten free flour blends are created equal.  Gluten free baking is a bit more complicated since we’re essentially trying to mimic the function of gluten in the gluten free flours we choose.  One main component we add is xanthan gum or guar gum which helps keep our gluten free baked goods light, fluffy and held together.

Not to overcomplicate things too much, but some gluten free flour blends already contain xanthan gum (or sometimes guar gum) and some do not.  For this recipe I call for a Gluten free flour blend which doesn’t already contains xanthan gum, so be sure to check the ingredient list of your gluten free flour blend. If it already contains xanthan gum OR guar gum, leave this ingredient out.

KEY # TWO:
Coconut Cream.  I have made this same recipe using carton coconut or almond milk and although it still works, the pancakes aren’t as fluffy and rich!

Gluten-Free Banana, Blueberry Pancakes

Vegan | Gluten-Free | Dairy-Free

Course Breakfast
Servings 12 pancakes

Ingredients

  • 1 and 1/2 cups gluten free flour
  • 2 Tablespoons coconut sugar
  • 1 and 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon xanthan gum or guar gum
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 13.5 fl. Ounce can full fat coconut cream
  • 3/4 cup filtered water
  • 2 Tablespoons flaxseed meal**
  • 3 Tablespoons olive coconut or grape seed oil
  • 1 ripe banana chopped
  • 1 cup fresh blueberries

Olive or Coconut oil spray

Pure Maple Syrup for serving

Instructions

  1. In a large bowl, mix together the flour, coconut sugar, baking powder, baking soda, xanthan gum and sea salt. Use a whisk to get rid of any lumps. I

  2. In a blender combine the coconut cream, filtered water, flaxseed meal, and oil and let sit for about 5 minutes to allow the flaxseed meal to gel up.

  3. Blend starting on low speed and slowly working up to medium or high until smooth and creamy.  

  4. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and whisk until well combined. Gently fold in chopped bananas and blueberries.

  5. Heat a skillet over medium heat. Once heated, spray with olive or coconut oil spray and turn heat down to low. Pour about 1/4 cup batter at a time onto the skillet, and cook each side for a few minutes until golden brown.*
  6. Top with pure maple syrup and enjoy.

Recipe Notes

*If using Trader Joes Gluten Free flour Blend add an additional 1/2 teaspoon xanthan gum.
**Option to use 2 eggs in place of flaxseed meal for a non-vegan option.  If doing this, reduce filtered water by 1/2 cup.
***Pancakes should be cooked slowly at a low temperature to avoid burning. If this process takes too long on one pan, either use a large griddle to cook multiple pancakes at once or heat two pans and cook pancakes simultaneously.
