Gluten-Free Blueberry Chocolate-Chip Banana Pancakes

This sorta healthy, sorta sinful, breakfast is a regular staple at my house. After years of trial and error, this is the recipe I came up with for my Gluten-Free Blueberry Chocolate-Chip Banana Pancakes. I always alter it a bit here and there, depending on what supplies I have.

Mix well 2 eggs with 1 cup of plain yogurt (Fage tastes the best!).

Add a few drops of Vanilla and/or Orange extract, if you have it, and a dash of cinnamon or pumpkin spice. Stir them in.

Add 1/2 cup of Bob’s Red Mill Gluten-Free Cornbread Mix, this is the magick ingredient.

Add 1/4 cup of Brown Rice Flour.

Add 1/4 cup of Tapioca Flour.

Add a pinch of baking soda.

Mix well all the flour and liquid ingredients. Pre-heat a non-stick pan at medium low.

Add to the mix 1 banana, either small slices/chunks if ripe, or mashed if banana is brown and aged.

Toss in a 1/4 cup of chocolate chips and 1 cup of washed blueberries.

Gently mix in the banana, chocolate-chips, and blueberries.

* If your batter is too thick, add a little milk at your discretion. *

You may add butter to the pan or not. The pancakes are smoother without the butter, but butter tastes better.

For another treat, as if they are not loaded enough already, you can add some coconut shavings to the wet side of the pancakes while cooking. (The coconut didn’t taste all that great when I mixed it into the wet mix.)

When the edges have cooked a bit and the top doesn’t look so fluid, flip the pancakes; they should be a light golden brown.

These pancakes taste pretty great all on their own without any sugar added, but I add 1 or 2 spoons on top of organic maple syrup. Yum!

In this breakfast, you get your serving of fruit, dairy, protein, and grain. Even though it tastes amazing, it is pretty healthy, giving you the energy you need to start your day.

For pancakes that take less thought and preparation, but are also not as nutritious, Bisquick offers a very tasty Gluten-Free Pancake Mix.
