Banana-Free Paleo Pancakes & Waffles

So, I’ve had some folks tell me they don’t dig bananas, so what can they use instead when it come to whizzing up pancakes or waffles with our Smith St Paleo Pancake & Waffle Mix? It’s really a case of subbing in 1/2 cup of any of the following in place of the nana.

Easy peasy solutions can be:

  •  unsweetened apple sauce. I usually have a jar of this in the fridge for impromptu pancake-amakin’. You could use any unsweetened fruit puree really, check out the baby food section (I’m not joking, promise!).
  • tinned pumpkin puree. You’ll find this in the baking section of the supermarket (for pumpkin pie purposes). It’s unsweetened and just straight up pumpkin. You could make sweet or savoury with this.
  • any puréed veg really. I’ve tried sweet potato, pumpkin, parsnip, cauliflower, you name it. For the waffles, its good just the way it is, but homemade puree might be a little thick for pancakes. If it is just loosen the batter a little with some non-dairy milk of choice. Easy. You could add cinnamon and nutmeg to the sweet potato or pumpkin for sweet pancakes or waffles, or add onion powder, garlic and fresh chopped herbs to go savoury.
