twist of fate.

in the o’donnell house, we have pancakes every saturday morning. i love pancakes. naturally, i wasn’t too stoked about the whole no-milk thing and wanted to figure out a way to make pancakes without milk (or soymilk — soy bothers baby too! or almond/rice milk — not available here).  SO.  i took my usual recipe and made a few random, on-the-fly changes one saturday morning, and as it turns out, they were the BEST banana pancakes we’ve ever eaten.  i love them.  they are really thick, which i enjoy.  here’s the super simple recipe for those interested.

accidental banana pancakes:
1 cup flour (1/2 ww 1/2 white, if you do that sort of thing..)
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt

mix these together in a bowl and add this to flour mixture:
1 egg
3 previously frozen bananas, thawed, with juices

mix together and add water to desired consistency.

NO MILK. NO OIL. MINIMUM INGREDIENTS. and also TASTY!!!! 🙂 i was stoked. hope you are too.

  1. Awesome! I’ve actually found that using water instead of milk made the pancakes fluffier….

    Don’t worry… it won’t last forever! (Anson ate cheese last week… and was fine! So guess what I had that same day…mmmmm)

  2. I know you are trying to avoid milk, but your excitement on the no oil aspect of the recipe makes me want to share this little tidbit.

    You can replace oil in recipes with applesauce. Cup for cup. Its awesome and ends up making the baked goodness much more moist!
