Serving Size: 4
Total Time:

The key to these easy pancakes is coconut flour, which contributes a delicate flavor and airy texture.


  • 8 large eggs, at room temperature
  • 1 cup mashed overripe banana
  • 0.25 cup water
  • 1.5 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 0.5 cup coconut flour, preferably Bob’s Red Mill
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • coconut oil, for greasing
  • Warm pure maple syrup, fresh berries, crisp bacon and slivered almonds, for topping


  1. In a medium bowl, beat the eggs with the banana, water and vanilla. In another medium bowl, whisk the coconut flour with the baking powder and salt. Whisk in the egg mixture until incorporated. ?
  2. Heat a griddle or large nonstick skillet and grease with coconut oil. For each pancake, scoop 3-tablespoon mounds of batter onto the griddle and cook over moderate heat until golden on the bottom and bubbles just appear on the surface, about 3 minutes. Flip and cook until risen and firm, about 3 minutes longer. Repeat with the remaining batter. Transfer the pancakes to plates and top with maple syrup, berries, bacon and almonds; serve right away.
