Chocolate (or Avocado and Banana) Covered Pancakes

A few months back I used to make nearly ALL of the recipes on Chocolate Covered Katie's blog. So delicious and fun (especially fun eating them!) But now that Im off gluten and soy AND a lot of veggies (broccoli, kale, cauliflower, brussel sprouts), I cant eat most of the things I read about. I saw this recipe for Red Velvet Pancakes for One and wanted to try it. Now I know, CCK has a good amount of GF adaptations but I truly despise Bob's Red Mill GF flour mix (its the bean flour!). So I made my own version, gluten free with banana avocado creme.

GF Chocolate Pancakes with Avocado Banana Creme

1 1/2T sweet sorghum flour
1/2T tapioca flour (or starch)
2T + 1t GF oat flour
2T cocoa powder
1/2t baking powder
1/8t salt
1 1/2 packets stevia powder
1/2t egg replacer powder mixed w 1T warm water
1/4c. non dairy milk (I used homemade almond cashew)
1 1/2-2T water

Mix together the dry ingredients (everything up to and including the stevia) and the wet ingredients separately, then pour the wet into the dry and combine. Cook like regular pancakes.
Meanwhile whip together 1/8 avocado and about 4-5 inches of a banana in a food processor.
Once pancakes are done, plate up and top with avocado banana creme and the remaining banana.

SERVES: One (makes about 5 small pancakes and creme to top).

If I had them, I would've added toasted coconut flakes on top as well. That would have made it phenomenal!
