I really wanted to make these for breakfast, but I decided this morning to try this banana ice cream, so I had to let that sit in the freezer for a few hours. That’s okay because I went out and bought a new bike, biked home, and then I was super hungry.
I made this and ate it within minutes of it finishing. It seriously took me longer to take these pictures than to consume it; it was that good. Ahem. I didn’t make any changes to the recipe. I did use sugar (brown sugar, actually, but that was just because I’m out of regular sugar, don’t have Stevia, and didn’t feel like Agave.) I’m pretty sure they would have been just as amazing without a sweetener.
The banana ice cream started to melt pretty darn fast (not surprising since I didn’t wait for the pancakes to cool before putting it between them) but it was so good. If I didn’t know it was just bananas and soy milk I’d have sworn I was eating ice cream.
put a few scoops on my plate and the rest in a bowl and that was gone pretty darn quick.
Oh, and the recipe was from Chocolate Covered Katie. God, before I started following food blogs how on earth did I get by?
I got these star sprinkles yesterday in preparation for these pancakes.
I was on the fence as to whether to get these stars, dinosaurs, or hearts (or a mixture), but I think I made the right choice
- 1 Frozen Banana
- Non-dairy Milk (I used just enough until my blender started to actually blend)
- ¼ cup Flour
- ¼ tsp Baking Powder
- 1 tbsp Dutch Cocoa (or Hershey’s Special Dark)
- 1 tbsp Brown Sugar (or whatever your favorite sweetener is. I’m 99% sure that it would still be amazing without it.)
- dash of Salt
- 1 and ½ tbsp Applesauce
- 1 tsp Vanilla Extract
- ⅓ cup Non-dairy Milk
- Blend the banana and non-dairy milk until consistent. Maybe add some vanilla and let me know how it tastes in case I don’t get around to trying for awhile…?
- Chill for a couple hours.
- In a small-medium sized bowl, mix dry ingredients well.
- Add wet ingredients and stir until the mixture is consistent.
- Cook on a hot skillet for 2-3 minutes per side (keep an eye on them; they cook faster than the pancakes I for one am used to)
- Spread your banana ice cream (or any other non-dairy ice cream) between the pancakes.
