Banana Nut Pancakes
Health Highlights
A healthier and nuttier take on the classic pancake recipe.


1 medium Banana (s) (mashed)
2 medium Egg (whisked)
1/2 cup Quick oats, gluten free, dry
1 tbsp Coconut milk, sweetened
1/2 tsp Vanilla extract, pure
1 tsp Cinnamon
2 tbsp Walnuts (crushed pieces)
2 tbsp Raisins, seedless (sultana) (optional)
1 tbsp Coconut oil (for pan)


  1. In a large mixing bowl, mash the banana and whisk the eggs into the mashed banana until you get a smooth mixture.
  2. Add the oats, coconut milk, vanilla, cinnamon, walnuts, and dried fruit of choice into the egg and banana mixture. Mix everything together until it makes a thick batter and everything is combined (no dry oats remaining).
  3. Heat a frying pan on your stovetop over low-medium heat and add coconut oil to the pan. Let it heat for 15 seconds. 
  4. Scoop 1/2 cup of batter into the frying pan and spread it out with a fork if needed.
  5. Cook your pancake until the edges start to brown and it easily lifts off the pan (about 3 minutes). Flip the pancake over and cook until done (about 3 minutes).
  6. Repeat with the remaining batter. Top with your desired toppings and serve.
