Banana & Coconut Pancakes

Low carbs, high protein and high in energy, this can easily become a very healthy and delicious breakfast choice for you on Sundays when you want to indulge your tastebuds without compromising on your health goals. These Real Food Banana  & Coconut Pancakes are extremely healthy with all the bananas, eggs, flaxseed and cinnamon goodness. Add to that the ease with which you can whip these out, and you have a healthy breakfast option (and I’m pretty sure you won’t miss the flour).

  • 4 large ripe bananas
  • 2 eggs + 1 egg white
  • 1 scoop vanilla protein powder
  • 2-3 tbsp ground flaxseed
  • 2-3 tbsp unsweetened shredded coconut
  • 1 tbsp cinnamon

In a large mixing bowl -
  • Peel the bananas and break into large chunks. Mash banana into a pulp. You can use a masher if you like, but I just use my hands.
  • Add eggs, protein powder, and cinnamon. Mix thoroughly.
  • Add in flax and coconut. Usually, I'll start with less and add more if the batter is still too runny. You want a fairly thick batter but not so much that it won't spread on the pan (just like regular pancakes).
  • Meanwhile, heat pan on medium heat. When warm enough, grease it, (I use coconut oil).
  • Cook for a few minutes on one side until you see bubbles forming. Flip and cook a few minutes more.
  • Top with honey, maple syrup or fresh fruits. (yummy strawberries).
