Hello and welcome to The Compost Bin. I'm Compostwoman and I live with my family in rural Herefordshire. We have nearly four acres of garden and woodland, all managed organically, which we share with Chickens, Cats, Guinea Pigs and assorted wildlife. We also grow a lot of our own food, run courses in all sorts of things and make a lot of compost!

I work as an environmental educator, writer and Forest School leader at Moors Wood . I am a Master Composter and spent 10 years as a volunteer Community Compost adviser with Garden Organic and my local Council. I offer talks and run workshops and events where we talk about compost, veg growing, chicken keeping, cooking, preserving and sustainable living. We also make crafts and have fun.

We try to live a more self sufficient lifestyle here, as best we can, while still having a comfortable life and lots of fun. To learn more about us click on the About Compostwoman tab and remember to click on the photos to make them full size!

Flour free pancakes - yummy!



I just made some banana pancakes - over ripe bananas, eggs, and a tiny bit of baking powder - yummy! No flour at all. I will be adding them to my Love Food Hate Waste demo recipe list!

Compostgirl and Compostman liked them as well
 


How to make them

 













Mash up peeled ripe bananas until very smooth




 



 








whisk eggs in another bowl (two eggs to every large banana) Mix together the banana and eggs (optionally add a pinch of baking powder) and then 




drop a tbs or two ( no more for each pancake)  into a medium fry pan with a small amount of oil already heated.  Dry frying WILL NOT WORK with this even in a non stick pan. 


Gently cook until pancake is set and you can flip the pancake over without it falling to bits (!)



When other side is golden brown serve 
 

and eat - Honey, Golden Syrup etc are lovely additions but these are seriously yum as they are.


 





This recipe needs to have starchy veg/fruit to substitute for the flour so I am going to try with pumpkin, tomorrow :)

I know mashed potato works and from reading on line, Plantain also works as a substitute for Banana.
 
 A good result I think:)

  1. Looks like a really good Gluten Free recipe.
    Not that I need Gluten Free but many do.
    I will definitely try this one

  2. It sounds a jolly good recipe. My husband isn't fond of bananas, unfortunately (he puts it down to not having tasted one until he was ten or so) but I could try it on the grandchildren.
