Prep time
Cook time
Total time
Serves: 14 small pancakes
  • 2 sugar bananas (just ripe and yellow work best)
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tbsp shredded coconut (buy on iherb or amazon)
  • 2 tbsp raisins or currants (buy on iherb or amazon)
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract (leave out for GAPS) (buy on iherb or amazon)
  • 1 tsp cinnamon (buy on iherb or amazon)
  • coconut oil for cooking (buy on iherb or amazon)
  1. Place peeled banana, eggs, cinnamon, vanilla extract and shredded coconut in magic bullet or high speed blender until smooth
  2. Add raisins or currants and pulse once to mix through (do not blend the raisins as it's nice to have them whole in the pancake)
  3. Heat a non stick pan on medium heat with 1-2 tbsp coconut oil to completely cover the surface of the pan, allow to heat up so that the batter slightly sizzles but without spluttering
  4. Mix batter with spoon to evenly distribute raisins and drop 1 tbsp of batter per pancake, I fit around 7 pancakes in my pan at a time
  5. Cook for 1-2 minutes, checking to ensure they do not burn, then flip for another 1 minute
  6. Repeat for the remaining batter
  7. Stack and serve on it's own or with maple syrup if you feel indulgent :)
