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.

    What do you mean by putting 3 pancakes in the pan at a time? Surely they'd just stick together and you'd end up with one very big pancake. Can I not just do one pancake at a time?
    • Hi Sophie, these pancakes are similar to american pancakes, small and thick. The batter is rather thick so you can actually fry three pancakes simultaneously. We mainly do this to save time, but if you prefer to only fry one pancake at the time you can of course do it /Good luck! David

    Hi! If I were to just make this for one, how much of the individual ingredients should I have?

    i somehow only recently stumbled upon your blog, but i think i've pinned most of your recipes and cannot wait to make them! while we are not a gluten-free family, its the middle of passover, so i made these pancakes for breakfast this morning. my 10 month old loved them!

    Hi, Cooking in Sweden I have a question, how many dl does one cup correspond to? The recipe looks great!
  • Audrey
    Just came across these, can't WAIT to try them. Question....how do these store? Could they be made ahead of time?
  • Shannon

    Thank you ever so much for this fantastic recipe!!! I just devoured 3 pancakes so quickly, I didn't even notice they were gone already. SO GOOD! I'll definitely be making these frequently. The perfect breakfast on a Saturday morning. Cheers from Hungary Noémi

    These pancakes are the best!! I have a difficult time trying to get my 3 yr old to eat eggs but this is a perfect way for him to get the protein. He requests them nearly every day for breakfast and other meals also. Thank you so much! Also I have a griddle that I use to cook many things. The griddle worked perfect for these pancakes and no oil needed.

      I am so happy to find this recipe! My daughter has Celiacs and I am gluten sensitive so trying to find yummy recipes with gluten free flour or no flour can be a chore! These are perfect. On my second batch I mixed in 1/4 cup Coconut Flour and they held together much better.

    Hello, I wanted to make a smaller batch of these and so used 4 eggs, 2 bananas, 80 g of coconut powder, and 1/2 cup of blueberries. Although they were delicious, it was impossible to keep them together in the frying pan! I used sunflower oil instead coconut, did they have anything to do with it?
    • Hi Diana, I'm not sure what coconut powder is, I usually use shredded coconut, but I suppose you can use coconut flour as well. You have to use ripe bananas to get a 'creamy' batter. You can try to test fry the first pancake if it does not hold together, add more shredded coconut. I would not recommend frying in sunflower oil, if you do not have coconut oil, use ghee, butter or olive oil.

      1 really ripe banana 2 large eggs 2 tbls (level) ground Psyllium husk 1 tbls Chia seeds. 1/4 tsp cinnamon Coconut oil to cook with. Note: I let my batter sit a moment to allow the psyllium to expand and thicken a bit. it's a great source of fiber. the chai seeds give it a nice texture and you can add more or lessential depending on preference. I did not have any vanilla or ground coconut But Mmm that would have been yummy too!! As for the topping I used.. mixed 2 tbls spoons home made, orange marmalade, With 1 table spoon (non pasteurized) Honey. Miix and lightly drizzle over top. Oh I also should point out this was my first time making these and I was really playing around with them. I had made some smoothie - blue berries - mango chunks - almond milk - Cinimon And a bit of filter water...(I love water) Zapped that and after serving off the bit to my son and my self there was about a 1/4 in the bottom of the blender so I added that to the mixture. Turned out rather good. I have been given permission to make more of thespancakes in the future And soo easy to make.

    Hi, I love making these pancakes but my partner is allergic to coconut. Is there anything I can add as a substitute for the coconut? I was wondering if perhaps oat flour would work? And if so, how much? Thanks!
  • Kristine
    Can I use what is called 'kokosmel' in Danish? Or do you use coconut that you grate yourselves? I reckon that the Danish sold 'kokosflager' are too big for this recipe?
      • Jeg var også i tvivl om jeg skulle bruge kokosmel eller kokosflager... Brugte det sidste og det blev lidt tungt... så jeg vil prøve med kokosmel næste gang. Har I brugt kokosmel eller flager til jeres?
        • Hej Barbara. Du skal bruge det danske kokosmel, altså fint revet tørret kokos. Håber de bliver bedre næste gang! Mvh Luise
