Flour free Banana & Blueberry Pancakes


This weekend we went to our country house, 30 min outside of Stockholm. We spent the whole saturday watching season one of the HBO series “The Wire”. Sunday morning we decided to take a break from our tv-marathon and made a no-sugar-super-healthy-very-delicious brunch: Flour free Banana & Blueberry Pancakes, Spelt & Muesli Scones, Fruit salad, and Superfruit Smoothie. Here is the recipe for the pancakes.

Banana & Blueberry Pancakes
Serves 4

3 ripe bananas
6 organic eggs
1 cup / 100 g shredded coconut
1/2 cup / 70 g fresh blueberries or thawed frozen
1 tsp ground cinnamon
coconut oil, for frying

Make the batter: Peel the bananas and mash with a fork. Whip eggs in a bowl and mix it together with the mashed bananas. Add shredded coconut, blueberries and cinnamon and stir to combine.
Fry the pancakes: Heat coconut oil in a frying pan on medium heat. Pour 3 small portions of pancake batter in the pan at the time and fry the pancakes on both sides. Serve with shredded coconut and blueberries and dust with cinnamon.

    Thank you so much for sharing this recipe! I made them with one less egg & a bit of apple puree and they were amazing! Thanks for your generosity :)

    Seriously… these pancakes look sooo good. :)
    Besides the fact that coconut flakes doesn’t contain gluten, are the any other benefitial reasons for using it instead of, for insteans spelt flour?

    hi! gorgeous site! stumbled across while looking up recipes for moroccan quinoa salad. question: i’m allergic to coconut, but this recipe sounds appealing to me…think it’ll work without the coconut?

    • Posted 3 Jul ’11 at 08:53 | #

      Hi Leslie! Thanks!
      Yes, you can make this without coconutnut, I often do that when we’re out traveling. Try to add chopped seeds, grated apple or a little buckwheat flour if they don’t hold together!
      Good luck!

    Har netop forsøgt pandekagerne, men havde svært ved at få dem til at hænge sammen, når de skulle vendes. Hvor længe lader I dem stege på hver side?

    Tusind tak for en fantastisk smuk og inspirerende blog!

    Wow… to think they would be more like an omelette or frittata with the egg content…but they look just like pancakes. Fabulous! Think they’d work just as well with frozen or fresh strawberries. I have a ton of them. (and freshly made strawberry-orange glaze sitting in my fridge to be used up). ;)

  13. Posted 13 Jul ’11 at 13:31 | #

    Wow that looks amazing! I would have never thought that these ingredients could make a pancake! Super creative!

      Maybe you could try to make them with ‘chia eggs’ instead? For each egg take 1 table spoon of chia seeds and mix with a little water and then let it soak for a while. This Can be used for baking, but the temperature when frying might be too high, I’m not sure

      • Posted 25 Sep ’12 at 12:02 | #

        Hi Kristine.
        It might work, the ratio for chia-egg is: 1 tbsp chia seeds and 3 tbsp water, mix and leave for 15 minutes.
        Good luck!

    This recipe looks so good ! I tried to make them but failed completely when flipping the pancakes, they just fell apart !

    I love your blog, btw !!

    I´ve just made them. Delicious!. It was kind of strange ´cuz i was expecting the bubbles to come out but then i realized that there was no flour on it!!
    Really loved it! i´m not crazy about the blueberry but none the less there where amazing :)

  17. Posted 6 Aug ’11 at 17:00 | #

    I’m making these for breakfast tomorrow, just went to the store for the ingredients tonight. Cannot wait!!!

  18. Posted 15 Aug ’11 at 20:43 | #

    Deliciouso! My pancakes came out rather thin though…do you know what could be the issue? more banana maybe?

    Hi Luise, David & little Elsa,
    Thank you for this lovely recipe, I’ve made these pancakes yesterday and we absolutely loved them. Though I didn’t have enough coconut flakes, I added some (2tsp) psyllium husks and they came out amazing. :-)
    I also made the Chunky Cherry & Prune Syrup (with strawberries & plums) that you posted along with the Kaniwa and Coconut Pancakes and we poured the fruit syrup over the pancakes. It was so Yummy! :D Thank you again.
    Take care,
    Krisztina

    My fiance and I love these! I initially I made the mistake of pouring the batter rather than scooping it. I found that scooping the batter made for thicker pancakes just like in the photo!

    One of our favorite pancake recipes by far. I do part coconut flakes and part flour adding a little coconut milk. They are amazing. Both times we’ve had them I make a maple pecan butter to serve on top from health-bent’s website. To die for. Thanks for the beautiful pictures and tasty recipes

  23. Posted 6 Mar ’12 at 20:48 | #

    Yum, great way to make pancakes when your out of batter !

    Hi I love the look of these, may I ask do you have a recipe for banana pancakes without eggs? I have been searching for a recipe for pancakes, no eggs, dairy, sugar but rather natural flavours or agave or dates or buckwheat flour if need be.
    Your site is so beautiful, have a great weekend :)

    • Posted 11 Mar ’12 at 18:30 | #

      Hi GG!
      We don’t have and egg free version of this recipe, but you can try to substitute eggs for apple sauce and a little flour.
      Good luck!

    Great recipe! I didn’t have coconut flakes so I added the shredded apple and it worked wonderfully! My 2 year old loved them as well! Thank you! Just discovered your site a few days ago, I’m going to download your iPad app as well!

  26. Posted 20 Apr ’12 at 22:57 | #

    These look gorgeous and so delicious – I don’t eat pancakes often because they’re so starchy and heavy, but I love this alternative!

  27. Posted 21 Apr ’12 at 01:14 | #

    I’ve been looking for something like that.I love coconut. Thanks for sharing.

  28. Posted 21 Apr ’12 at 07:58 | #

    Ooh! These look delicious, and healthy too! I can’t wait to try them out.

    Can I use what is called ‘kokosmel’ in Danish? Or do you use coconut that you grate yourselves? I reckon that the Danish sold ‘kokosflager’ are too big for this recipe?

    • Posted 25 Sep ’12 at 12:03 | #

      Yes, you can use the danish kokosmel.

      • Posted 18 Aug ’13 at 16:19 | #

        Jeg var også i tvivl om jeg skulle bruge kokosmel eller kokosflager… Brugte det sidste og det blev lidt tungt… så jeg vil prøve med kokosmel næste gang. Har I brugt kokosmel eller flager til jeres?

        • Posted 20 Aug ’13 at 09:29 | #

          Hej Barbara.
          Du skal bruge det danske kokosmel, altså fint revet tørret kokos.

          Håber de bliver bedre næste gang!
          Mvh

    Hi, I love making these pancakes but my partner is allergic to coconut. Is there anything I can add as a substitute for the coconut? I was wondering if perhaps oat flour would work? And if so, how much? Thanks!

    Hello,
    I wanted to make a smaller batch of these and so used 4 eggs, 2 bananas, 80 g of coconut powder, and 1/2 cup of blueberries. Although they were delicious, it was impossible to keep them together in the frying pan! I used sunflower oil instead coconut, did they have anything to do with it?

    • Posted 17 Jan ’13 at 14:42 | #

      Hi Diana,
      I’m not sure what coconut powder is, I usually use shredded coconut, but I suppose you can use coconut flour as well. You have to use ripe bananas to get a ‘creamy’ batter. You can try to test fry the first pancake if it does not hold together, add more shredded coconut. I would not recommend frying in sunflower oil, if you do not have coconut oil, use ghee, butter or olive oil.

    These pancakes are the best!! I have a difficult time trying to get my 3 yr old to eat eggs but this is a perfect way for him to get the protein. He requests them nearly every day for breakfast and other meals also. Thank you so much! Also I have a griddle that I use to cook many things. The griddle worked perfect for these pancakes and no oil needed.

      I am so happy to find this recipe! My daughter has Celiacs and I am gluten sensitive so trying to find yummy recipes with gluten free flour or no flour can be a chore! These are perfect. On my second batch I mixed in 1/4 cup Coconut Flour and they held together much better.

    Thank you ever so much for this fantastic recipe!!! I just devoured 3 pancakes so quickly, I didn’t even notice they were gone already. SO GOOD! I’ll definitely be making these frequently. The perfect breakfast on a Saturday morning.

    What do you mean by putting 3 pancakes in the pan at a time? Surely they’d just stick together and you’d end up with one very big pancake. Can I not just do one pancake at a time?

    • Posted 19 May ’13 at 20:35 | #

      Hi Sophie, these pancakes are similar to american pancakes, small and thick. The batter is rather thick so you can actually fry three pancakes simultaneously. We mainly do this to save time, but if you prefer to only fry one pancake at the time you can of course do it
      /Good luck!

    Hi,

    I gave these pancakes a try, but couldn’t flip them over in the frying pan. They turned into a globs of pancake. How do you flip them?

    Thanks,
    Lisa

      You have to cook them slowly and then when they bubble like normal pancakes be really swift and slide your spatula under the pancake in one quick motion (they are delicate and if you go in slowly and get stuck they will break apart). Don’t worry they always survive the big shove underneath, don’t be afraid, flip those babies!

    Ahhh for the first time ever I was able to finish a stack of pancakes without feeling like a sick mess! These were glorious, and so easy to make, I was sneaky and had mine with a side of chopped banana, cinnamon, honey and peanut butter (because I can’t get away from the stuff). Made a stack for one by ‘thirding’ the ingredients, twas’ perfectly filling! AND SO SCRUMMYYYYYYY!!! Thank you gorgeous green family! I’m excited to try out Elsa’s pancakes with coconut cream next, sounds delicious.

  52. Jessica
    Posted 7 Aug ’13 at 21:47 | #

    So good! I didn’t have coconut, but I used a mixture of grated carrot and apple, and squeezed out as much juice as I could. I also added chia seeds. Texture was great.

  53. Peta
    Posted 8 Aug ’13 at 00:54 | #

    For anyone who is having trouble making these (or in fact any of the GKS pancake recipes) because they are too delicate, try adding a teaspoon or two of psyllium husk, it adds a bit of sturdyness and doesn’t disrupt the original texture or flavour, plus you get extra dietary fibre! Woohooo!

    Hello :-)

    I going to have a brunch on sunday, we are 4 people….I would like to do these glutenfree pancakes…My question is, does this receipe serves 4 people or 4 pancakes?
    If it serves 4 pancakes than i will need a massive amount on eggs…
    or would you recommend to use a glutenfree flour instead?

    would be nice to hear from u
    big kiss from germany:-)

    • Posted 17 Dec ’13 at 09:34 | #

      Hi Avrutina, you will definitely get more than four pancakes from this recipe, as the pancakes are quite small. Depending on what size you make them you will get between 8-12 pancakes. If you want to make a larger amount of pancakes without adding more eggs or bananas, I would recommend adding 100 ml plant milk (we often use oat milk) and around 75 ml almond flour or buckwheat flour (or whatever you have at home).
      You need to be careful when flipping gluten-free pancakes, as they are a little trickier than normal. Try not to lift them up too early, but let them set properly before flipping them.

      Hope your brunch turns out nice!
      David
