Claire's Favorite Almond Flour Pancakes - GF

A few years ago I mentioned that we don't eat bananas because they are not locally produced. Well having a baby changes things. Our third baby is going gluten-free and grain-free until she's at least a year old.  (Uh oh. I just made a comment about my own parenting choices on the internet. Cue the haters.) For the time being organic bananas are a staple in our kitchen. They are easy to digest and the perfect texture for babies. 

Claire's Favorite Pancakes
These aren't just for babies. I like them too. They are easier and tastier than any of the other almond flour pancakes I have tried.
Serves 1-2. Easily doubled. 

1 ripe banana - a thawed frozen banana is fine 
1 large egg
3/4 cup blanched almond flour
Dash sea salt
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
Heaping tablespoon arrowroot powder
Butter for the pan

In small mixing bowl mash banana. Whisk in egg. Add the remaining ingredients and whisk to mix. Batter will be thick. 

Scoop about 1/4 of the batter into a hot buttered skillet. (On my stove, I cook pancakes just below medium heat.) spread batter with a spatula. Cook a few minutes, until the bottom has coked enough to flip, then flip and cook a minute or two more. 

Boom! Soft, grain-free, naturally sweet pancakes.
