Gluten Free Banana Fritters

by Becky | Posted in Breakfast

These gluten free banana fritters are based on the humble pancake batter. Very yummy and easy to make.

This batter has a sweeter taste due to the bananas but I don’t find it overpowering.

The fritters go well with desiccated coconut, vanilla ice cream, and maple syrup. To the kitchen, I go.

Gluten Free Banana Fritters tips

Here are some tips to help you make the most out of this recipe:


This batter can be stored in an airtight container in the fridge for two days.


Make sure you use a well-oiled non-stick frying pan, to make your fritter in.


Make sure the oil you are frying the fritters in is very hot, otherwise, the fritter will soak up the oil and become soggy.

Avoid Cross-Contamination

If you’re preparing the banana fritters in a kitchen that is not entirely gluten-free, take precautions to avoid cross-contamination. Use separate utensils, cutting boards, and cooking surfaces to prevent gluten from coming into contact with the ingredients.
