  • 2 medium ripe bananas
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 cup almond butter (can substitute peanut butter)
  • 1/4 cup ground flaxmeal
  • ½ tsp. vanilla extract
  • ¼ tsp. ground ceylon cinnamon (use 1/8 tsp. if using regular cinnamon)
  • 1/8 tsp. baking powder
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil (can sub butter if you are not dairy free)
  • maple syrup


1. Crack the eggs in a large bowl and whisk them.

2. In another bowl, lightly mash the bananas with a potato masher or a fork.

3. Add the bananas, almond butter, flaxmeal, vanilla, cinnamon, and baking powder to the eggs and stir to combine.

4. Place batter in the refrigerator for 10 minutes to harden a bit.

5. Heat the coconut oil (or butter if you aren’t dairy free) in a medium to large skillet over medium to low heat.

6. Pour pancake size amounts onto the skillet and cook until the bottom appears set (2 to 3 minutes). Flip with a spatula and cook another minute.

7. Serve immediately, topped with maple syrup. (Makes 6 – 8 pancakes, depending on how big you make them.)
