Gluten-Free Banana Pancakes FAQs

What does banana substitute in pancakes?

Banana helps keep the pancakes together and acts like a sugar substitute. It gives it a sweet taste, so no added sugar is necessary!

Why are my banana pancakes rubbery?

If your banana pancakes are rubbery, you might have overmixed your ingredients. That sometimes happens with gluten-free flour.

Why are my gluten-free pancakes gooey?

Because you are using a fresh banana, it can sometimes make the pancakes gooey if you do not cook them properly. Make sure they are completely cooked through before taking them off the griddle.

Can bananas be too ripe for banana pancakes?

I don’t think so! The best bananas are the ones that are overripe and really yellow. They are usually sweeter and are easier to mash up.
