Almond and banana pancakes recipe
- Cuisine: Modern Australian
- Prep Time: 15 min(s)
- Cook Time: 20 min(s)
- Serves 2–4
I have used three different flours in this recipe, but you can use only one or two if you like — just have the final quantity equal 2 cups. The fruit provides sweetness, but add ¼ cup grated coconut palm sugar for a little more if you like. Leave out the yoghurt for a dairy-free and vegan alternative.
Level of difficulty: easy
Ingredients1 cup besan (chickpea flour)
½ cup buckwheat flour
½ cup millet flour
½ cup ground almonds
1 tsp low-allergy bicarbonate of soda
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1 banana, mashed
1 apple or pear, grated
750 ml (3 cups) apple or pear juice or soy milk
2 tbsp macadamia, coconut or rice bran oil
blueberries and plain yoghurt mixed with maple syrup, to serve
PreparationIn a bowl, mix the dry ingredients together, then add the fruit and juice or soy milk. Stir well to combine until the batter is thick and wet. Adjust the consistency by adding more juice or flour if needed.
Heat ½ tablespoon of oil in a frying pan over medium heat, then pour about ½ cup of batter into the pan. Fry until tiny bubbles appear on the surface and the bottom is golden brown, then flip. Cook this side until golden, then transfer to a plate and keep warm. Using a little more oil, repeat with the remaining batter.
Serve the pancakes with fruit, yoghurt and a sweetener if you like.

The traditional Swiss chocolate fondue was made with melted bars of Toblerone combined with cream. The honey and nougat in the Toblerone provides a beautiful flavour and texture.
Rice flour can be used to thicken soups and stews, as well as providing an alternative to wheat flour in cakes and biscuits.
