Banana Pancakes…Almost Gluten Free (15 cents a serving)


Mmmmm nothing like cooking a warm breakfast on a beautiful Sunday morning…

These pancakes are not only cheap, but delicious and healthy!!

Now the reason I say that these pancakes are almost gluten free is because I use non gluten free oats, but you could easily swap them out for gf oats.


I decided to calculate a rough estimate on about how much each of these pancakes would cost.

Some things I did not include in the final price were spices and sugar just due to the sheer volume and calculation I would have to do.

For 8-11 pancakes it cost me $1.75

That’s right just $0.15 a pancake!!!

Just ask my hubby, he will tell you just how good they are too 😉


Banana Pancakes

11/4 cup oats

1/2 cup chickpeas (soaked and ground)

2 tsp cinnamon

2 tsp pumpkin pie spice

1. Put oats and ground chickpeas into food processor. Bled until well combined.

(Just buy dried chickpeas, soak 1 cup of beans in water overnight or 6-8hrs, allow to dry and put into food processor–good in fridge for a week)

2. Take all dry ingredients and combine into a large bowl.

3. Blend all the wet ingredients in a food processor or blender until smooth.

4. Combine wet and dry ingredients.

5. Scoop desired amount of pancake batter into a sprayed pan over low to medium heat.

6. When you see those bubbles popping, flip those puppies over!!

7. Let cool, add your favorite toppings, and enjoy!!
