How to cook these coconut flour banana pancakes
The process for making these coconut banana pancakes it's super simple, and doesn't require any electrical equipment.
Make the pancakes batter
In a large mixing bowl roughly mash the banana. Add eggs to the mashed banana, and mix to combine.
Add the vanilla extract, cinnamon, baking powder and coconut flour. Mix well to combine to avoid flour lumps. See tip below.
Cook the pancakes
Heat coconut oil on a nonstick pan on medium-low heat. Using a tablespoon, add the pancakes batter and shape them to approx. 10 cm diameter. Add a couple of slices of banana to the centre of each pancake. Once the base is golden brown (approx, 2-3 minutes) flip them with a spatula and cook them for another 2-3 minutes.
Repeat the process until you've used all the batter.
Top with some fresh berries, coconut yogurt and drizzle of maple syrup!
Tip! You want to avoid lumps of flour, but you don't want a super smooth batter. Aim to keep the banana roughly mashed in the batter. A few bigger chunks of banana give these pancakes a nicer texture.
Substitutions and variations
- Add plant based milk (coconut milk or almond milk) - if your batter ends up too dry (this is most likely because you've put too much coconut flour).
- Any fresh fruit - as topping, feel free to use your favourite fruits! Other than berries, papaya, mango, passion fruit or even more banana will work great as well.
- Add chocolate chips - to the pancake batter.
- Top up with plant based butter - like almond butter or peanut butter.
What makes these coconut flour banana pancakes so good!
They make a super healthy and delicious breakfast! They are much healthier than regular pancakes filled with sugar! Soft, fluffy and light.
Low in carbs, high in protein & healthy fats, and naturally sweetened with bananas. Perfect combination for a healthy meal.
Gluten-free, dairy-free and paleo friendly.
Super easy to make and no electric equipment is required, all you need is a large bowl to mix the batter, and a pan to cook them!
Traditional banana pancakes are great, but when you add grilled banana to the mix, you bring the pancake experience to a next level!
- Teaspoon and tablespoon measurer
- Large bowl
- Whisk or fork
- Frying pan (nonstick)
If you have leftover batter store it in an airtight container in the fridge. The batter will last 2-3 days.
You can also store the cooked pancakes in an airtight container in the fridge for 2-3 days. They're a perfect grab-me breakfast for busy mornings.
Tips to make the perfect fluffy pancakes!
Coconut flour can be tricky to work with in the beginning, because the consistency is not great. So my top tip to make the perfect pancakes is to make the pancakes small, so they don't break and it's easy to flip them. Size to be approx 10 cm diameter.
Be mindful of the stove temperature! I highly recommend cooking them on low-medium heat to achieve the perfect texture. The outside will brown without burning, and the inside will stay nice and moist.
Don't skip the banana slices, they're my favourite part of these pancakes. They are absolutely delicious when they're grilled and what makes these paleo pancakes extra special!
I can't say this enough, buy organic eggs!! Or at least quality free range eggs. They taste much better plus they're the main source of protein of the recipe, so ensure you get quality one from happy hens!
