  1. Put the flour and baking powder into a large bowl or jug and stir to combine.
  2. Break the egg (or add the chickpea flour + water) in the bowl, add the milk and beat to make a smooth batter.
  3. Thinly slice the banana.
  4. Put a little oil into a frying pan, roll it around to cover the surface and heat until nice and hot.
  5. Pour batter into the pan to make 7.5cm/3” circles.
  6. Carefully put a few banana slices onto each circle and cook on medium heat for 2-3 minutes.
  7. When bubbles appear on the surface and the base is golden reduce the heat to low.
  8. Turn the pancakes over and cook the other side for 1-2 minutes.
  9. Transfer cooked pancakes to a plate and repeat until the batter is used.
  10. Serve warm with syrup of your choice.

Great simple pancake recipe! I wasn’t sure how the chickpea flour instead of egg would work, but they came out perfectly! I didn’t add bananas as my son has started to want them without fruit. I used self raising flour as we didn’t have plain, and so dropped the baking powder. They were very fluffy and light!

The only GF pancakes that I've actually enjoyed! Top tip: If you have an overripe banana, mash it up and include it in the batter mix. You might need to add a bit more milk but it makes the sweetest pancakes ever.

Love these super tasty pancakes as they are a hit with my children. Good to have in the freezer and use when we need them. It is also reassuring to know there is no added sugar. Always hard finding gluten free snacks so quick and easy recipes offer flexibility.

These are the best pancake we have eaten and enjoyed as a family since my son and I switched to a gluten free diet three years ago. Absolutely delicious.

This recipe needs salt. Tried twice without and was very bland and tasted more of flour than banana. A little salt...much tastier.

An excellent recipe for weekend. I don't like sweets, so this banana pancake is a great idea. I used the quantities from this site, except for milk. For 250g flour I poured only 250 ml milk. Thank you dovesfarm for the flour quality and the provided recipes. Hope you'll continue to export your products in Europe.

Made these for the gang this morning because I couldn’t find our “usual” pancake recipe on your new site. No matter - these were much tastier and a good texture too. My five year old has just devoured five of them. It’s a good job daddy’s not up yet or we would need a second batch!

This is probably the best gluten free US style pancake recipe on the web. I made a little change to the recipe, more by accident than anything, but it has an amazing outcome. Mix 50/50 plain and self raising flour. Then cook medium low for a little longer and watch them rise into proper thick tasty pancakes! Banana adds sweetness without using refined sugars. Lovely!!

I just finished making these. Great recipe. I substituted banana for 2 tbsp caster sugar and added some vanilla essence. It makes 5 average sized pancakes. Would definitely recommend!
