Health Rating
A healthier and nuttier take on the classic pancake recipe.


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


1. Heat a frying pan on your stovetop over low-medium heat. 


2. While your frying pan is heating up, in a large mixing bowl, mash the banana and to it add the eggs. Whisk the eggs into the mashed banana until everything is thoroughly incorporated.


3. Add the oats, coconut milk, vanilla, cinnamon, walnuts and dried fruit of choice into the mixing bowl that contains your egg and banana mixture. Mix everything together until it makes a thick batter and everything is combined. Make sure to leave no oats dry.


4. If you need to, turn your frying pan up to medium heat and add 1/2 tablespoon of coconut oil to the pan. Let it heat for 15 seconds. 


5. Scoop 1/2 cup of batter into the frying pan and spread it out with a fork if needed.

6. Cook your pancake until the edges start to brown and it easily lifts off pan (about 3 minutes). 

7. Flip the pancake over and cook until done (about 3 more minutes). 

8. Repeat with remaining batter and coconut oil. Top with your favourite toppings and enjoy!


Quick Tips:

To make this grain-free, substitute oats for almond flour. 

Substitute coconut milk for any dairy-free milk of choice. Optional, cook with avocado oil or ghee instead of coconut oil. 

Topping options: nut butter, almonds, pecans or fresh jam.
