Recipe { Loving Pancakes }

I wanted to call these ‘Loving’ pancakes because your whole body, from your taste buds to your tummy, will love it: it’s delicious but also healthy!

I’ve been playing around with this recipe for a while, and can finally share the perfect combination of ingredients. There are few tweaks that you can make and I will include them in the ingredient list.

I usually make these on a weekday, but are also perfect for a lazy Saturday morning for the person you love (make sure to double the recipe!).

Ingredients {for one person – yields about 5-6 small pancakes}

  • 2 eggs
  • 1 ripe banana
  • ¼ cup coconut flour (I’ve also used ground flaxseed but didn’t like the taste as much)
  • A dash of vanilla extract
  • 2 tbsp of almond milk (or any milk that you have on hand)

Optional additions {add to taste}

  • Almond slivers
  • Dark chocolate chips or cocoa nibs

Steps {prep time: 5 minutes | total cook time: 15-20 minutes}

  1. In a medium bowl, mash the banana, making sure that you get rid of as many clumps as possible.
  2. Add 2 eggs, vanilla, almond milk & coconut flour, and mix until smooth.
  3. Heat up a non-stick pan on medium heat, and add a bit of oil (just enough to thinly coat the bottom of the pan).
  4. Pour about 2 tbsps of the mixture onto the heated pan [I usually cook 3 pancakes at a time]. The batter is quite thick so I spread the batter with a spoon to create an oval/roundish shape.
  5. Cook for 5-7 minutes, making sure that it’s not over-cooking. [This is the tricky part: if the pancakes don’t cook enough, you won’t be able to flip them and they’ll just fall apart.] Test the consistency of the pancake by slowly lifting one side with a spatula.
  6. Flip over and let the other side cook for about 3-5 minutes.
  7. Add your favorite toppings and enjoy! I love hazelnut butter & berries on these pancakes. A real treat that you will love and not feel guilty about!
