Health Highlights
These pancakes are made with nutrient dense green plantains so they won't spike your blood sugar like regular flour pancakes!


2 plantain(s) Plantain (green)
4 large egg Egg
3 tbsp Coconut oil
2 tsp Vanilla extract, pure
1/2 tsp Baking soda
1 dash Salt
1 tbsp Coconut oil (for frying)


  1. Peel plantains and add them to a high-speed blender with eggs, coconut oil, vanilla extract, baking soda, and salt, and blend until smooth.
  2. Heat griddle or cast iron pan to medium-high heat and add coconut oil to the pan. Using a 1/4 cup measure, ladle out the batter into the pan to make pancakes even in size.
  3. Allow pancakes to cook for 3-5 minutes on the first side. When pancakes have a few bubbles and appear dry on top, flip and cook an additional 1-2 minutes.
  4. Repeat until you finish the batter. Garnish with your favorite fruits and nuts.
