Peanut Butter and Banana Pancakes

I have to tell you something. I have always been pretty useless at making pancakes. One side was always fine – it was when the time to came to flip the pancake that I had a problem!! Well, see this photo of the pancake? did that! Yep, me. I was so chuffed. But I also have to tell you that I cheated a little. Once one side was cooked, I put the grill on high and put the pan under the grill. It worked! Once the pancake was all cooked and done, I slid it out onto the plate and folded it. It was absolutely yummy and is part of the diet I am following.

So, I would also like to share the recipe for Peanut Butter and Banana pancakes with you.


Ingredients (Makes 3 good-size pancakes)

  • 1 mug of ground almonds
  • 2 ripe bananas
  • 200mls coconut milk
  • 3 free range eggs
  • Wholeearth organic peanut butter to taste

The Method

  1. Chop the bananas and mix all the ingredients together in a blender to form a batter
  2. Heat some coconut oil in a saucepan and pour some of the batter in to cover the pan – fairly thick amount of mixture
  3. Cook so that one side lifts easily
  4. Place the pan under a high grill in order to cook the other side
  5. Slid onto a plate, fold and serve with lemon and a handful of blueberries


It may be a small thing but it really was a Magic Moment for me. Making a decent pancake without it falling apart AND it being yummy too.

    Yum – this sounds amazing, especially with coconut milk – will have to try it out. We all love pancakes at home. My favourite is Nutella with sliced bananas with chopped almonds on top!
