Theres nothing quite like fresh pancakes in the morning, especially now its getting colder. These pancakes however are grain, wheat and dairy free, so you can enjoy them without the guilt or the bloat.

I LOVE bananas due to them providing such high doses of potassium, vitamin C and manganese to the body. They also provide a great source of dietary fibre keeping your digestion on track.

So simple this recipe is held together by some delicious free range eggs to load your body with protein and amino acids that will keep a bounce in your step all day long.

Ingredients (Serves 4 pancakes)

(Please use organic where possible)

2 bananas

200ml coconut milk

4 TBSP almond meal

1 TBSP honey

3 eggs

A pinch of vanilla powder

2 TBSP coconut oil


In a blender blend all ingredients except oil together.

Place half the oil in a pan on a medium heat. Poor a quarter of the mixture on the pan cooking until slightly bronzed then turning to cook the other side.

Repeat this with the rest if the mixture adding extra coconut oil if needed. Sprinkle some more vanilla powder on top of the pancakes and serve HOT.

I like to put some fresh yogurt or cream on top to add a little more indulgence.

    • It is important that you buy pure coconut milk, a lot of them have extra sugars and chemicals in them, when reading the ingredients it should just say 100% coconut milk!
