Gluten-free, Dairy-free, Egg-free Sourdough Banana Fritters

 

These fritters are deliciously crisp around the edges from a shallow fry in coconut oil, but have a creamy center as the banana melts into the batter. They are free of gluten, eggs, dairy, and gums often used in gluten-free baking, and therefore are a real treat for those with many food restrictions.

Feel free to swap out the banana for apple or peaches or whatever fruit is in season.


Ingredients

  • 1½ cups gluten-free sourdough starter
  • 2 tablespoons ground flax
  • ¾ teaspoon cinnamon
  • ¼ cup coconut milk
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 very large banana (or 2 small), sliced thinly
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon gluten-free baking powder
  • Coconut oil, lard, or ghee for frying


Instructions

  1. In a medium bowl, combine sourdough starter, flax, cinnamon, coconut milk, and honey. 
  2. Cut banana slices into batter, then sprinkle baking soda and baking powder on top. Mix until combined.
  3. Preheat skillet over medium-low heat with enough coconut oil added to create a thin layer on the bottom of the pan.
  4. Once oil is hot, very carefully spoon 1-2 tablespoons of batter into hot fat. Shallow fry, as you might a pancake, and flip once bubbles form and the edges are firming up. Cook on the other side until they are set up.
  5. Transfer to a warming plate and keep warm in the oven while you finish frying the rest of the fritters. Add fat as needed for frying.


Serve warm, drizzled with honey or powdered sugar.
