I discovered a whole lot of things while developing recipes for the 21 Day Reset (see tempeh, tempeh, and more tempeh). But among the piles of fermented soy, I also discovered something equally delicious…gluten-free baking. I don’t usually bake many gluten-free bready things, but as the tulip-man and I went through a trial run of the reset program, cutting all dairy, grains, and sugar, we began to have some serious bread cravings. And so these banana pancakes were born. Out of necessity for grain-free pancakes that actually taste like, well, pancakes.

    This recipe includes eggs but is tagged as Vegan?

    1. Sarah says:

      Oh shoot, brain fart! Thanks for pointing that out! Definitely not vegan!

  2. Zia says:

    I tried this recipe with chia eggs… complete fail. But with a little bit of coconut flour, magic, and amateur baking skills they turned out semi-edible! (kind of) Do not recommend using chia eggs.

    1. Sarah says:

      Hi Zia, thanks for the tip! The eggs are pretty important here to glue everything together. Sorry the chia didn’t turn out as well for you!

  3. Jessica says:

    I didn’t have almond butter so I used coconut oil and just tiny bit Less water and they came out great. Also I’m lazy and just lay parchment paper on a baking sheet and bake my pancakes and it even worked for these.4 stars
