Gluten-Free Banana Muesli Pancakes

I made these from random pantry ingredients on Monday morning, posted a photo, and began receiving recipe requests immediately. So here’s what I did!

Gluten-free vegan banana muesli pancakes

Serves 2-3 (2 hungry adults + a toddler)

½ cup rice flour
⅓ cup besan/chickpea flour (or buckwheat)
¼ cup arrowroot or tapioca starch
¼ tsp cinnamon/nutmeg/allspice/mixed spice/your favourite!
½ cup gluten-free muesli*
1 large banana
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp gluten-free baking powder
1½ cups rice milk (or soy or almond)
oil for cooking (I used coconut)

Mix together the flours, starch, cinnamon, and baking powder, sifting out any lumps and/or aerating with a whisk. Stir in the muesli.

In another bowl (or in a blender!), mash the banana and combine with the vanilla and milk.

Combine the wet ingredients with the dry ingredients gently until “just mixed.” If your muesli contains liquid-absorbing ingredients like oats, you may need to add more milk to achieve a thick, slightly-runny (but not too runny!) pancake batter consistency. If you have time, let the batter “rest” for 5-15 minutes or so (I use this time to make juice or a smoothie, a pot of tea, and temper the pan).

Heat oil in a frypan. Cook 3-4 small pancakes at a time over low-medium heat for a few minutes each side, flipping when they begin to bubble. (When cooked, cool them on paper towels to soak out a little of the oil if you like.)

Serve with syrup and seasonal fruits and nuts or nut cream! Hooray. icon smile Gluten Free Banana Muesli Pancakes

You can double this recipe, cook up a bigger batch – they reheat a-ok. But there’s nothing like fresh pancakes!

*My muesli was a mix of oats, raisins, slivered almonds, pepitas, and dried fruit.

What’s your favourite pancake topping? Tell me in the comments! I forgot I had fresh strawberries when I made these, d’oh! But I’m loving the heck outta date syrup lately. icon smile Gluten Free Banana Muesli Pancakes

    Thank you! I will look forward to trying this recipe.  I recently had pancakes make with muesli and bananas at an inn, and they were delicious!
