Last week Mr. 8 and I scratched up some delicious (yet not allergy friendly) Kid-Friendly Banana Bread. Luckily we had a couple of overripe bananas leftover to make these equally awesome Gluten Free Dairy Free Banana Pancakes for Junior High Guy, too!

banana-peelerIgnore the messy counter… these are not the droids you are looking for…

This easy-peasy single flour recipe is another great one to get the kids involved in cooking, with some fairly instant gratification as the pancakes come off the griddle. (Um, the pan — I don’t actually own a griddle, but doesn’t it sound better here?) I modified our favorite Brown Rice Flour Pancakes recipe to come up with the following.

Gluten Free Dairy Free Banana Pancakes

banana-pancakes-7

Ingredients

1 cup brown rice flour
1 Tbsp sugar
2 tsp gluten free baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp cinnamon
2 eggs
1/2 tsp vanilla
1 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
2 overripe bananas
1/4 cup dairy free mini chocolate chips (optional — blueberries would also be great!)

Directions

Whisk together rice flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon in large bowl. Add eggs, vanilla, and vanilla almond milk and whisk until blended. Peel and slice bananas, add to batter, and whisk until blended nicely. Stir in chocolate chips or blueberries, if using.

Spray cast iron skillet generously with gluten free non-stick spray. Heat on medium, adding batter for your first pancake only when pan is completely hot. Cook on one side until bubbles form on the top, then flip and cook until browned on the other side. Note: Make your pancakes small — the bananas make the dough a bit goopier, so they are hard to flip and don’t cook through as well when they are large.

Enjoy!

Y-U-M: These are like banana bread wrapped up in a pancake! The recipe made a lot of pancakes, but they kept well in the refrigerator overnight and reheated nicely — I’m sure they’d also freeze well. Junior High Guy just walked behind me and asked when we’re making these again, so I’d say they were a hit. 😉

Next up in our ALDI gluten free series — frozen blueberry pancakes

Today we stopped by ALDI and decided to try their gluten free frozen pancakes. The blueberry ones do not contain dairy, but they also have a buttermilk variety, which, well, does, lol. So we went with blueberry for Mr. dairy-free 10.

aldiglutenfreepancakes-4

These are in the “SimplyNature” line so contain no artificial colors or flavors — although they do have plenty of sugar. Both boys highly approved of how sweet these were, but I thought they ran too sweet.

aldiglutenfreepancakes-2

I did approve, however, of how they came prepacked in groups of threes, so you can make a few but not leave the rest in the box open. 12 pancakes ran $2.89, which for a gluten free product isn’t bad. If you think about the non-sale, non-coupon cost of conventional name-brand freezer pancakes, this price is actually comparable to that, rather than to their gluten free equivalents.

So, just thought I’d show you these since many of you have been asking about the gluten free products at ALDI. As with the gluten free brownies I bought last week, these are also a limited time special buy — but I’m hoping that the fact that we keep seeing gluten free products appear means that they’re becoming a regular part of the rotation. (Because if anyone needs more ways to save on food, it’s people with food allergies and sensitivities!)

  • And, hey ALDI — bring back those gluten free chicken nuggets! Please. :)

Gluten free dairy free pancakes — a modifed recipe from MashupDad

A few months ago, there was an insanely good deal on Bob’s Red Mill all purpose gluten free baking flour on Amazon: Four bags for $5.50 shipped. (Alas, it is no longer this price…) A couple of you purchased it and were asking for recipes using this flour, especially those that didn’t require adding Xanthan gum. So here’s one for gluten free, dairy free pancakes, which is based originally off a recipe on the Bob’s Red Mill site. I’d link to it directly if their recipe site wasn’t down! But, here’s their general Bob’s Red Mill recipes link to browse when it comes back up.

MashupDad often cooks Sunday brunch, which is not our day for healthy eating in this house; just a warning before we start! Over time he has tweaked the original pancake recipe from their site: Since the Bob’s Red Mill gluten free flour includes garbanzo and fava bean flour, it has a pretty strong and somewhat bitter aftertaste, which is why this recipe calls for the extra sweeteners that you might not normally add — they do a good job of counterbalancing the bitterness, and these pancakes are now beloved by both boys. If you are substituting a different gluten free flour, you may need to mess with the ratios, depending on the product.

Ingredients

1 1/3 cups Bob’s Red Mill gluten free all purpose baking flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp sea salt
1 1/2 tsp white granulated sugar
1 Tbsp honey
1 tsp vanilla
2 eggs
1/2 cup dairy free milk (preferably vanilla flavored — we used Silk Very Vanilla soy this morning), plus extra for thinning batter if necessary
2 Tbsp canola oil
Whatever add-ins you like — dairy free chocolate morsels, blueberries… (This batch has a handful of dark chocolate morsels.)

Directions

Combine dry ingredients: Flour, baking powder, baking soda, sugar, salt in a medium bowl.
Combine wet ingredients: Honey, vanilla, eggs, non-dairy milk, canola oil in a separate larger bowl.
Whisk together wet ingredients.
Add dry ingredients to wet ingredients and whisk until smooth. (Add in more milk to thin out batter, if needed.)
Mix in chocolate morsels, blueberries, or other add-in ingredients to taste.
Cook on greased pan (used Pam). Flip over when pancakes are starting to bubble, then cook the other side til it all looks good and pancake-y.

See, I warned you it wasn’t a necessarily healthy breakfast — although you are not required to eat yours with bacon. 😉

But, ta-da — gluten free, dairy free pancakes!

quakerpancake

Hey! I was just on Coupons.com, as is my wont, and noticed a new coupon for $1.00 off Quaker Oatmeal pancake mix.  (It was on page 17 for me, so be patient in your scrolling.) At Walgreens this week, they have a Quaker deal going — buy two at 2/$5.00. Use two printables, pay $3.00, and get $2.00 RR back. Anyone tried these yet? I’m intrigued.
