A Healthy Recipe for Pancake Day: Banana Pancakes [Paleo Friendly] – Hope 103.2

A Healthy Recipe for Pancake Day:
Banana Pancakes [Paleo Friendly]

By Susan JoyMonday 12 Feb 2018

Serves: 6 pancakes | Prep Time: 00:06 | Cooking Time: 00:15

My favourite way to eat these yummy sweet grain free pancakes, is to top them with coconut yoghurt and fresh strawberries, a drizzle of honey and a sprinkling of cinnamon. For a very special treat or a birthday breakfast, you could add 1/4 cup of dark chocolate chips (no soy, paleo friendly of course), just mix them through the batter by hand before cooking.


1 cup cashews
1/4 cup coconut (desiccated-finely shredded)
3 lge egg(s)
1 lge ripe banana(s)
1 Tbsp honey (unprocessed), or 100% maple syrup
1/2 tsp baking soda (bicarb)
2 – 3 Tbsp filtered water
2 tsp coconut oil, for cooking


Add the cashews to a food processor or blender. Blend until a fine meal is produced. Add the coconut and blend for a few seconds to break it down.

Add the remaining ingredients and blend until well combined, smooth and creamy (without any bits). Add extra water if needed to reach a similar consistency to a regular pancake batter.

Heat a large non-stick frying pan over medium – low heat. Smear the pan with a little coconut oil at a time so the pancakes don’t brown too fast before they have cooked through.

Use a 1/4 cup of mixture per pancake. Cook 2 or more at a time (depending on the size of your pan). Use the back of a spoon to spread batter into a round shape.

Cook until the bottoms are brown and firm, approximately 3 – 4 minutes. Then flip, turning carefully as the top will be a bit sticky. Cook 1 – 2 minutes on second side.

Serve topped with coconut yoghurt, strawberries, a drizzle of honey and sprinkle of cinnamon or your favourite toppings.
