GOOD morning friends!
Happy Pancake Sunday!
I hope you are all having a fantastical relaxing weekend…and staying warm. Our temperatures around here have dropped down to around the 40’s which is MUCH too cold for Heather 🙁
Thank God for electric blankets!
AND for PANCAKES! 😀
When I finished off the last slice of Coconut Banana Bread for breakfast the other day, I couldn’t help but still have the craving lingering around when it came time for lunch.
Obviously, there was only one thing left to do…
Ahh, pure happiness!
I was SO HAPPY with how these turned out.
The ingredient list is simple and in less than 15 minutes, I had a beautiful stack of coconutty-banana goodness before me.
Sweet, dense, and oh, so spongy!
Which means they’re PERFECT for soaking up warm drizzly
coconut butter and maple syrup!
Coconut Banana Pancakes
Prep Time: 2 minutes
Cook Time: 10-12 minutes
Keywords: fry breakfast dairy-free grain-free high fiber high protein gluten-free coconut flour bananas Pancake Sunday
Ingredients (Serves 1)
- 4 egg whites
- 1/2 large ripe banana, mashed
- 1/3 cup unsweetened almond milk
- 1/4 teaspoon almond extract (optional)
- 1/4 cup coconut flour
1. Preheat a non-stick skillet or griddle to medium heat and coat with cooking spray.*
2. Whisk egg whites until frothy.
3. Add remaining ingredients and stir well.
4. Spoon batter onto skillet surface, forming 4 medium-sized pancakes, and allow to
cook 5-6 minutes per side before flipping.
5. Plate and layer with other half of banana, toasted coconut, and a drizzle of coconut butter.
*Do NOT skip this step as coconut flour-based pancakes have a tendency to stick
And not only are they FULL of coconut and banana flavor…
But they are also PACKED with all-natural protein and fiber!
All the more reason to smile…
And maybe add a bit more coconut butter to each and every bite! 😉
Oh these are simple and easy ingredients! YUM! I always say I need to make pancakes, but never do because I either fail or don’t take the time. Maybe this week will be my week!
Happy Sunday love! Cold here too!
Aww, you can do it girl! I have faith in ya! Seriously, these are too good and TOO easy not to try! 😉
Yummm these are being made ASAP! I just want to double check though… 4 egg whites = 1/2 cup?
Have a great Sunday girl!
You got it! 😉
I cannot say no to anything coconut! These look so good 🙂
I’m the same way…which is weird because when I was little, I would touch it with a 10 foot pole! Funny how our tastes change with age!
Is it terrible that the first topping that came to mind for these was Nutella ;)? With or without, these bad boys look amazing! I might have to try it with whole wheat flour & coconut extract as I don’t have any coconut flour at home- hopefully they taste as delicious!
Haha, hey no judgement here…Nutella these babies up! And actually, I had a person on Instagram post a pic of these using whole wheat flour and they came out just fine! Let me know what you think if you make them…and if the Nutella just happens to make an appearance…I wanna see a pic! 😉
Pancakes with coconut flour?!? Why didn’t I think of this before. Yammm
Oh yes, yes indeed! And if you’re interested, I have another recipe for super fluffy coconut pancakes here: http://www.kissmybroccoliblog.com/2012/07/15/pbj-coconut-pancakes/ 😀
Looks great! I love how simple they are!
And this is really unrelated, but what type of protein powder do you use? I’m looking to buy some.
Right now, I’m using Now Foods whey isolate. I shopped around for a while for a good brand that had a short ingredient list without any artificial flavors AND that wouldn’t cost me my first-born child. So far, I’m really liking it! Other brands that I’ve used in the past are Syntrax Nectar whey, Muscle Gauge Nutrition whey isolate, and I really like Optimum Nutritions natural casein. 🙂
Try spending the weekend at a sled hockey tournament–it’s cold indoors and out!
I wish I had these pancakes to warm me up from the inside. The look wonderful and I just bet the flavor combo is delicious.
Gosh dang you woman!! I am seriously sitting here eating pancakes RIGHT NOW, wishing I hadnt of made them yet. These sound so good!! Ok, so maybe Im having pancakes for dinner too 😉
Haha, hey…breakfast ALWAYS taste better after dark! And in my world, pancakes can happen ANY time of day! 😉
These look gorgeous!
Have you ever considered opening a healthy pancake restaurant? Or online store? Haha. I would so pay to have these shipped to me every morning.
Haha, only in my dreams lady…and that’s AFTER I get my big shot cookbook deal! 😉
Heather. I know were just went though a comment conversation about this… but I really need you to make me these. I’m too saore to move and I need carbs and bananas to replenish me. See you in 5-6 hours? 😉
Haha! That race did ya in didn’t it? We seriously need to work out some sort of teleportation device from my house to yours…like SERIOUSLY!
Oh my goshhhh. These look incredible. I’m obsessed with coconut flour. I can’t have eggs though, darn. I wish coconut flour was easier to work with in eggless/dairy free cooking!
Have you seen my recipe for Coconutty Protein Pancakes? It uses coconut flour, brown rice flour, and protein powder, but I used chia in place of the egg! They’re SO good! 😀 http://www.kissmybroccoliblog.com/2012/06/24/the-pancake-queen-flips-again/
Now you have won my little taste buds over. I am now craving these for dinner. That would be perfectly acceptable right?? Where do you order your coconut flour from? I need like a 5lb bag…. 😉
Heck yeah! Brinner is the BEST! I actually get my coconut flour from a little Mennonite market here in town, but I used to just get the Bob’s Red Mill brand from Whole Foods before that. What’s funny is, I bought a 5lb bag back in October and figured it would last me a while, but I’m already more than halfway through it! Lol
Ah! I made them before and I LOVE them and – yours look so pretty, oh so pretty, yours look pretty and witty and yummm (not gay as in the original text) – and I pity, any girl who isn’t you todaaaaaay…. If you think I just went insane – this is the song from West Side Story that just popped up in my head when seeing these beauties. Would you mind if I move in with you? Just for the sake of your pancakes and some good laughs? 🙂
Hahaha! Feel free to narrate your comments in the form of song ANY day…LOVE IT!! And just let me know when you’re packed up and ready…the spare bedroom awaits! 😀
Sorry to be a bum but your print button is broken on this recipe! Aside from that (I can copy and paste so crisis averted) I can’t believe the stats on these pancakes – 19g of protein – that is freakin’ awesome! You, my friend are a pancake genius!
xo Emily @ Hungry Delights
Haha, with super sweet comments like that, you can ask me anything…but for the record, you’re totally not a bum! Actually, I noticed that it wasn’t showing up right a couple of hours ago so I already fixed it for ya! And yep, gotta love it when you get a solid amount of protein from all-natural sources…15 grams from the egg whites and 4 grams from the coconut flour! 😀
These look SO easy!! I have to go get some coconut flour now! 😉
Yesssssssss love this! Coconut = <3 and so easy!
Somehow your posts have convinced me to make pancakes before church two weeks in a row – instead of relaxing. That’s crazy talk – but so delicious! 🙂
Damn! I should have read this post before I made my pancakes for breakfast this morning. Don’t get me wrong I love my heart smart bisquick mix, but this recipe just sounds friggen delicious!!
Yes ma’am! And just about as easy as mixing up some Bisquick! 😉
These look sooooo good!! Seeing this post made me crave something tropical. I am going to experiment with banana, mango, coconut muffins next weekend…
Ohh, that sounds delish! I’ve been eyeing the mangoes at the store lately…I think it’s about time I tried fooling myself into thinking I’m on a tropical vacation! 😉
I love that there is only five ingredients to these lovely ladies. Obviously when they are this sexy, they must be females.
Hahaha! Love it!
Those look, as always, amazing. What is NOT amazing is the sudden drop in temperature. Hello, 28 degrees today, with Miss Smart wearing her fleece and scarf for most of the day, inside, because her office happens to be RIGHT at the main entrance for all the cold air gushes to come through.
Too cold. Much too cold.
Thank you for letting me rant. 🙂

Seriously lady… You are the pancake whisperer. I’m doing a whole30 right now and subbed coconut milk for the almond milk and they were the best! Om nom nom get in my belly!

Oh yumm! I will have to make these this weekend! I love pancakes.
Wow, these look AMAZING! I haven’t found a good coconut flour pancake recipe that isn’t crumbly, so I can’t wait to try these!
Thank you so much Melissa! I’d love to know what you think of them…they are definitely one of my favorite stacks!
I made them yesterday and they were SOOOO good! I tweaked the recipe a little by adding flaxseed, vanilla extract instead of almond and dried blueberries. They didn’t crumble at all! Thank you!
Oh my gosh, dried blueberries! What a GREAT idea! I will definitely be trying that soon! And thank YOU for the feedback!! I’m SO glad you liked them! 😀

So, I’m having trouble getting my head around coconut flour. It just doesn’t behave the way other flours do, and when I try to use it in pancakes and stuff I end up with a seriously ugly (but delicious) mess. It just won’t hold together for me and it falls apart and turns into pancake scramble. Your coconut flour pancakes, on the other hand, look perfect. Do you have any tips for the coconut-flour challenged ?
Oh goodness! Carrie, I am SO sorry for the delayed response…somehow your comment got a little lost! :-/
Coconut flour definitely marches to the beat of its own drum! It’s HIGHLY absorbable so that’s why it tends to make pancakes really crumbly. The trick is to use enough binding ingredients to balance out the dryness. Eggs, bananas, and flax all work really well to help them hold together. And you also want to make sure that when you add your milk (or whatever liquid you are using) that you don’t add too much. Sometimes the batter will look EXTRA thick and you’ll want to add more liquid, but if you do, you end up with a complete pancake FAIL as soon as you go to flip the little suckers…not that I would know or anything! 😉 Let me know if this helps…OR if you have ANY other questions!

HOLY YUM!! I just made these…for dinner.. and they were freaking A-MAZ-ING. Instead of topping with extra bananas, I put blueberries in the batter. I plan on making these again with a peanut butter spin…possibly tomorrow morning. Thank-you thank-you for creating a coconut flour pancake recipe that actually worked for me!! 🙂
Awww, yay!! You seriously just MADE my night, Katherine!! I’m SO glad they worked for you and you enjoyed them…and omg, yes to blueberries…AND a peanut butter spin?! Totally loving that idea!! Thank you so much for the amazing feedback! 😀

I just came across you recipe. Not sure if you still reply to posts…When I enter the ingredients into my recipe maker it comes up with over 500 calories for this serving. I don’t know what you used to figure the nutrients, etc, but yours is waaaaaaay off. There are 60 calories per 2 tbsp in coconut flour alone.
The nutrition facts listed are for the pancakes only. They do not include toppings. That being said, 4 eggs whites contain 68 calories, 60 calories in 1/2 a large banana, 13 calories in 1/3 cup of almond milk, 120 calories in 1/4 cup of coconut flour. All of that comes out to a total of 261 calories.
