These pancakes are recipe redemption for me. I have had good success baking without eggs and dairy. Conquering the wheat-free world however, has been more of a challenge. I’ve had my share of flops (yes, I’ll admit it) but my persistence has paid off with these pancakes! Even my pancake averse 5-year-old loved these. She declared them to be “perfect!”. She tends to be skeptical, somewhat understandably, of baked goods that her brothers can eat too. I knew we had a winner when she devoured her first plate and requested seconds. I loved them too and we will definitely be adding them to our repertoire! I think that these would be fabulous with fruits other than cherries as well. Blueberries would be yummy!
Also, I’m guessing these would be quite good with standard all-purpose flour, if you can have that. Just omit the gluten-free flour and xanthan gum and replace with your usual flour. Let me know if you try it!

Cherry Banana Pancakes
- 1 1/4 cups gluten free flour blend
- 4 tbsp vegan granulated sugar
- 1/2 tsp xanthan gum
- 2 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1 1/2 cups coconut milk (or other milk)
- 1 tbsp oil
- 1 medium sized banana, mashed
- 1/2 cup fresh cherries, pitted and chopped
Mix flour, sugar, xanthan gum, baking powder, cinnamon and salt together in large mixing bowl. Add coconut milk, banana and oil and stir until well combined. Stir in chopped cherries. If you like your pancakes a bit thinner you can add more milk. This batter makes nice thick pancakes! Heat griddle and cook pancakes in a dab of dairy free spread, flipping once.
