Spelt Banana Pancakes

Mmmm pancakes…. I always admire the big heaping stacks of pancakes that comes out at restaurants… Often in ridiculously high piles! Theres just something attractive about a tall stack of pancakes… But sadly, a lot of places serve them thinking more about the quantity than the quality… And, regular old pancakes might not be the healthiest breakfast to choose anyway… Of cause they are fine to eat once in a while, but why not make your own with good ingredients, so you can eat them more often!:-)

Spelt Banana Pancakes

Makes about 8-9 pancakes

  • 3 small or 2 large bananas (265 g)
  • 1 Tbs coconut oil
  • 1 Tbs agave
  • 2 eggs (for vegan version, just leave out the eggs and add 1/2 cup water. The bananas will work as a fine egg-substitute)
  • 1 cup (140 g) Spelt flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/4 tsp ground ginger
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
Turn the oven on to 200 degrees, to keep the pancakes warm after baking.
Mix all the dry ingredients in a small bowl.
In a medium bowl, mash the bananas and stir in the eggs.
Add the dry ingredients to the wet, and stir till combined. You might need to add a bit of water if you think the batter is too thick… Let batter rest for 5 min before baking.
Heat a nonstick pan to medium heat, and brush lightly with canola oil. Wipe off excess oil with a paper towel.
Spoon batter onto the pan using a 1/4 cupful at a time. Bake for about 1 min on each side.

The pancakes are ready to flip when they start getting bubbles…

And then just about a minute on the other side…

Keep the pancakes warm in the oven, while you bake off the rest:-)

Serve varm with chopped nuts and fruit, and a drizzle of good maple syrup.
