Finding specific ingredients at the store right now is challenging. That's why I wanted to share this very simple pancake recipe that only calls for 3 ingredients. More importantly, 2 out of 3 of the ingredients can even be swapped out for whatever is currently on hand.
For example, for the flour, you do not have to used rolled oats, you can substitute any flour you have, this can be wheat flour or perhaps rice flour or a gluten-free blend. You will need bananas, but regarding the milk, if you do not avoid dairy, feel free to use cow's milk. However, if milk is hard to come by you can just use straight up water.
One thing I have been noticing at the store lately, is that if there are items left in the baking section, these are predominately the gluten-free ingredients. I bet this partially stems from the price of these items, but I also wonder if they are left behind because many people are not sure how to utilize these gluten-free products. The recipes I share typically use ingredients that are not the norm, but I will be sharing more gluten-free recipes so you are equipped if you are in the situation where you are bringing home ingredients you might not be familiar with.
To tell you the truth, I was a bit skeptical when I first started making these pancakes, but I was pleasantly surprised by their very pancake-like consistency and banana flavor. So if you are in a pinch (or even if you just want some really good pancakes) I hope this recipe will help you ensure your family has a wholesome breakfast with these pancakes.
