Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free Banana Pancakes Image by: Jodi Pudge Source: Canadian Living Magazine: September 2016
These flourless pancakes taste a bit like the centre of a piece of French toast. Fry up a batch (or two!) on the weekend and keep the wrapped pancakes in your fridge or freezer for an easy microwaveable breakfast you'll actually want to eat.
In bowl, mash 1 of the bananas until smooth. Stir in 2 tsp of the honey, the baking powder and 1/4 tsp salt. Stir in eggs until well combined.
Measure out 1 tbsp vegetable oil. Heat nonstick skillet or griddle over medium heat; lightly brush with some of the oil. Working in batches, drop batter by 2 tbsp into skillet; sprinkle 1/2 tsp of the pistachios over each pancake. Cook until bottoms are golden, about 2 minutes. Turn pancakes; cook until bottoms are golden, about 1 minute. Transfer to plate. Repeat with remaining oil, batter and all but 2 tsp of the pistachios. (Make-ahead: Wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate for up to 3 days or overwrap in foil and freeze for up to 3 weeks; reheat in microwave or toaster.)
Slice remaining banana; arrange over pancakes. Sprinkle with remaining pistachios; drizzle with remaining honey.
Tip from The Test Kitchen: Flourless pancakes can be tricky to flip, but here's a trick: Use a thin spatula and lightly mist it with cooking spray before turning the pancakes.
Makes about 8 pancakes.
Best Maple Butter Tarts
Make your own delectable custardy tarts instead of buying them. We've subbed in the very Canadian ingredient maple syrup for the more common corn syrup. Plus, we've included variations on the classic, with chocolate and pecans instead of raisins.

Our best-in-class take on this classic treat has a buttery flavour, a chewy centre and a subtly crisp exterior. Oh, and you can tweak the recipe to make them crisp or soft, too.
