I often suggest this simple, grain-free, version of pancakes. Here’s the recipe!
Equipment: blender, frying pan or griddle, spatula, knife
1 green plantain
Pinch of salt
1/4 – 1/2 cup “milk” of choice
Avocado oil or ghee
Cut the plantain into sections and remove peel. Put into blender jar with the egg and salt. Add a small amount of your liquid of choice and blend. Add liquid to desired pancake batter consistency. Mixture may thicken slightly on standing so have a little “milk” or even water handy in case you need to thin it.
Heat oil or ghee on a griddle or pan. Cook pancakes, turning after bubbles form on the top.
Serve with fresh fruit, a little bit of real maple syrup, or use to make breakfast sandwiches.
This batter made even thinner can be cooked in a large pan as a wrap or tender faux tortilla. Experiment!
