Another Pancake Recipe!!!! Also egg and dairy free! :)

Everyone has those nights where they have breakfast for dinner right? I know I do! As much as I cook, I do have those nights where I just need a break!

So last night we had a breakfast night of pancakes and bacon for dinner. Levi, with his food allergies cannot have just any old pancake mix, and I always have to make them from scratch. Doesn’t bother me though, because I like knowing exactly what is being put into it.

These are another recipe that I just tried last night (because I was short a couple of ingredients from the last time I made the previous recipe!):

DIRECTIONS

  1. Sift flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt together into medium mixing bowl.
  2. Melt 2 1/2 Tbsp margarine in measuring cup and add to the dry mixture.
  3. If you do not have a non-stick pan, make sure to grease your skillet first.
  4. In a small bowl, add water and bananas; Mix well. Add vanilla and cinnamon and stir.
  5. Stir liquid mixture into the dry ingredients until it is thoroughly moistened.
  6. It is OK if this batter is lumpy.
  7. Cook the pancakes over medium-high heat on the stove-top (or 375F on electric frying pans).
  8. Cook pancakes until the tops are bubbly and the bottoms browned.
  9. Turn the pancakes over to cook other side (approximately four minutes per side).
  10. Serve hot with margarine, a little honey, pure maple syrup or a little fruit jam!
  11. Actual cooking time will depend on the size and type of pan you use. I had a large skillet and cooked 3 at a time. I had it on medium heat.

Quote of the day:

Do you love Ina Garten? I do. I love her show and her recipes, and I always get a kick out of when she says to use “good” vanilla, or “good” eggs…. like… I’d hope they aren’t bad!! So I found this quote and laughed so hard! I had to share it:

My kids are creatures of habit. A couple of years ago, when  my mom watched my kids when I was still working full time, they would usually have breakfast with her. She got them into a “toast” routine. Every single morning… I mean EVERY morning (whether we are out of town and at Panera for breakfast, or home) they want toast and bacon and juice for breakfast. That’s it. It’s crazy! The problem this morning is that I didn’t go grocery shopping yesterday, and realized this morning that I am out of bacon and bread. OOPS! So, my toast snob children were not happy. BUT, I whipped up these “Levi Friendly” (my son who has food allergies) pancakes and they DEVOURED them!!! At least I know what I can make now when I run out of bread!!!

 

Enjoy!
