Banana and coconut pancakes

January 31, 2018


I think it is very obvious that pancakes are becoming my new favourite breakfast food (after the simple and easy granola/yoghurt combo of course). But I also don't think that is a bad thing, in fact who wouldn't love more pancakes in their life? 


For those of you who are also allergic to eggs, you might've noticed that if the egg is well cooked in a dish, your body won't have a negative reaction. Which is why recently I have been blogging a lot about egg's cooked well in a meal as opposed to presenting you guys with a well boiled egg as a side to an 'avo toast' situation. I still find it bazar that after all these years, I am only NOW allergic to eggs and it's almost in every standard breakfast meal (sigh). According to the research I have done on it, many people (especially women) are prone to picking up new allergies as they get older, it is somewhat immune based but otherwise, it really just is not a cool thing to have to deal with, when you thought all the surprises were basically over. If you are allergic, try this recipe and see how your body reacts, and if not then definitely avoid eggs at all costs. I am just trying to find a loophole so I don't have to can them entirely.


Anyway back to the pancakes... they are so fluffy and light that effort that goes into baking them is so worth it. I have used simpler recipes before and this one I just decided to do my own thing and they came out so beautifully. I love adding a banana into the batter because it allows for a softer more chewy center, as opposed to a stiff pancake. Without further a-do, here is the recipe:


Recipe: Banana X Coconut pancakes




  • 1 1.2 cups of flour 

  • 2 tbsp brown sugar 

  • 3 1/2 tbsp. baking powder

  • 1/2 tsp. salt

  • 1 cup of milk

  • 1 small ripe banana

  • 2 large eggs 

  • 1 vanilla pod

  • 1/2 tsp. cinnnamon

  • 3 tbsp. melted butter

  • 1/3 cup dessiccated coconut 




  • In a medium bowl, whisk the flour, baking powder, salt, cinnamon powder and coconut and leave on the side. 

  • Use a hand held blender to combine the eggs, banana and milk.

  • Add the wet to the dry ingredients and add the melted butter at the end. 

  • I used spray cook to fry these pancakes but butter/coconut oil is good too (watch out that the butter doesn't burn as it will darken your pancakes).
