Flour free Banana & Blueberry Pancakes

Banana Pancakes
This weekend we went to our country house, 30 min outside of Stockholm. We spent the whole saturday watching season one of the HBO series “The Wire”. Sunday morning we decided to take a break from our tv-marathon and made a no-sugar-super-healthy-very-delicious brunch: Flour free Banana & Blueberry Pancakes, Spelt & Muesli Scones, Fruit salad, and Superfruit Smoothie. Here is the recipe for the pancakes.

Banana & Blueberry Pancakes
Serves 4

3 ripe bananas
6 organic eggs
1 cup / 100 g shredded coconut
1/2 cup / 70 g fresh blueberries or thawed frozen
1 tsp ground cinnamon
coconut oil, for frying

Make the batter: Peel the bananas and mash with a fork. Whip eggs in a bowl and mix it together with the mashed bananas. Add shredded coconut, blueberries and cinnamon and stir to combine.
Fry the pancakes: Heat coconut oil in a frying pan on medium heat. Pour 3 small portions of pancake batter in the pan at the time and fry the pancakes on both sides. Serve with shredded coconut and blueberries and dust with cinnamon.

    Great recipe! I didn't have coconut flakes so I added the shredded apple and it worked wonderfully! My 2 year old loved them as well! Thank you! Just discovered your site a few days ago, I'm going to download your iPad app as well!
  • [...] hope to make myself some almond flour pancakes or coconut flour pancakes one of these mornings. Or these, which have absolutely no [...]
  • Hi I love the look of these, may I ask do you have a recipe for banana pancakes without eggs? I have been searching for a recipe for pancakes, no eggs, dairy, sugar but rather natural flavours or agave or dates or buckwheat flour if need be. Your site is so beautiful, have a great weekend :)
    • Hi GG! We don't have and egg free version of this recipe, but you can try to substitute eggs for apple sauce and a little flour. Good luck! /Luise

  • Yum, great way to make pancakes when your out of batter ! ratedkb.blogspot.com
  • [...] The recipe is taken from Green Kitchen Stories, a brilliant food blog written by a Danish and Swedish couple, and I’ve wanted to cook their veggie dishes for a long time. The pancakes are made with bananas, eggs, desiccated coconut, blueberries and cinnamon, so they’re completely wheat-free. I fried them in butter (there’s an end to how healthy something can be), although the recipe states that you should use coconut oil. [...]

    One of our favorite pancake recipes by far. I do part coconut flakes and part flour adding a little coconut milk. They are amazing. Both times we've had them I make a maple pecan butter to serve on top from health-bent's website. To die for. Thanks for the beautiful pictures and tasty recipes

    My fiance and I love these! I initially I made the mistake of pouring the batter rather than scooping it. I found that scooping the batter made for thicker pancakes just like in the photo!

    Hi Luise, David & little Elsa, Thank you for this lovely recipe, I've made these pancakes yesterday and we absolutely loved them. Though I didn't have enough coconut flakes, I added some (2tsp) psyllium husks and they came out amazing. :-) I also made the Chunky Cherry & Prune Syrup (with strawberries & plums) that you posted along with the Kaniwa and Coconut Pancakes and we poured the fruit syrup over the pancakes. It was so Yummy! :D Thank you again. Take care, Krisztina

    I have just found your website and I am addicted already...it is beautiful inspirational and indeed delicious...we have just made the flourless blueberry pancakes which were a hit - especially with Leonardo, my one year old son!
  • Deliciouso! My pancakes came out rather thin though...do you know what could be the issue? more banana maybe?
  • [...] (Original recipe from Green Kitchen Stories) [...]
  • I'm making these for breakfast tomorrow, just went to the store for the ingredients tonight. Cannot wait!!!
  • Maria AndreA
    I´ve just made them. Delicious!. It was kind of strange ´cuz i was expecting the bubbles to come out but then i realized that there was no flour on it!! Really loved it! i´m not crazy about the blueberry but none the less there where amazing :)
  • This recipe looks so good ! I tried to make them but failed completely when flipping the pancakes, they just fell apart ! I love your blog, btw !!
  • Flora Sandy
    I saw these and they looked so good... but I do not eat eggs.... so I can not try them
    • Kristine
      Maybe you could try to make them with 'chia eggs' instead? For each egg take 1 table spoon of chia seeds and mix with a little water and then let it soak for a while. This Can be used for baking, but the temperature when frying might be too high, I'm not sure
      • Hi Kristine. It might work, the ratio for chia-egg is: 1 tbsp chia seeds and 3 tbsp water, mix and leave for 15 minutes. Good luck! /Luise

      Same her, it´s quite difficult to make vegan pancakes /:
  • Wow that looks amazing! I would have never thought that these ingredients could make a pancake! Super creative!
  • Wow... to think they would be more like an omelette or frittata with the egg content...but they look just like pancakes. Fabulous! Think they'd work just as well with frozen or fresh strawberries. I have a ton of them. (and freshly made strawberry-orange glaze sitting in my fridge to be used up). ;)
  • Har netop forsøgt pandekagerne, men havde svært ved at få dem til at hænge sammen, når de skulle vendes. Hvor længe lader I dem stege på hver side? Tusind tak for en fantastisk smuk og inspirerende blog! Katrine

    hi! gorgeous site! stumbled across while looking up recipes for moroccan quinoa salad. question: i'm allergic to coconut, but this recipe sounds appealing to me...think it'll work without the coconut?
    • Hi Leslie! Thanks! Yes, you can make this without coconutnut, I often do that when we're out traveling. Try to add chopped seeds, grated apple or a little buckwheat flour if they don't hold together! Good luck! /Luise
  • Seriously... these pancakes look sooo good. :) Besides the fact that coconut flakes doesn't contain gluten, are the any other benefitial reasons for using it instead of, for insteans spelt flour?
  • Veron
    Thank you so much for sharing this recipe! I made them with one less egg & a bit of apple puree and they were amazing! Thanks for your generosity :)
