Ingredients for making banana applesauce pancakes
Compared to other pancakes, this recipe is rich in flavour coming from the cinnamon, unsweetened applesauce and nutmeg. Other ingredients in this recipe are banana, eggs, unsweetened almond milk, vanilla extract, maple syrup, old fashioned rolled oats (gluten free if desired), baking powder and salt to taste.
How to make banana applesauce pancakes
- Mash the bananas and add into a blender with other ingredients, blend for about a minute on high. Pour the batter in a bowl and let it sit there as you heat up the pan. If the batter is too thin or thick, add extra tablespoons of oats or unsweetened almond milk respectively.
- Lightly coat a non-stick frying pan or griddle with olive oil (or coconut oil) and set hob to medium heat. Scoop 1/3 cup of the pancake batter onto the pan. Cook for about 2-3mins until the bubbles start to pop up around the edges and on top.
- Flip to the other side and cook until golden brown. It shouldn’t take long on the flipped side so watch the pancake doesn’t get burnt. If your pan starts smoking it means the heat is too much; I normally start on medium heat and turn it down lower so that the heat won’t be too high.
- Serve hot with your favourite toppings.
I topped my banana applesauce pancakes with diced apple and honey. You can make it even better and top with diced sautéed apples and sprinkle some cinnamon on top!
Can you freeze banana applesauce pancakes?
I prefer to eat pancakes fresh, but if you like to cook it ahead and freeze it, you can do that. To freeze pancakes, put them in lidded freezer safe plastic containers and freeze for up to three months. The longer you freeze pancakes for, the more they lose their taste and texture.
How do you keep pancakes warm?
Sometimes, you may not be ready to eat your pancakes straight away, hence, why you might want to keep it warm and fresh. To keep pancakes warm, place it on a plate and pop it in the oven at about 90C until you’re ready to eat.
