Fluffy Banana Coconut Flour Pancakes



These past few months have been very hectic and I have neglected my blogging but not my cooking and kitchen experimenting! So after a bit of a break I've returned with a fun creation. Awhile back I picked up some Coconut Flour to play around with.  I tried using it for muffins, scones, pancakes, and it just needed some fine tuning of the 'back of the bag' suggested recipes before I felt comfortable posting any of said recipes. Well, yesterday's Easter Sunday Brunch was test day and it was a hit! 

These fluffy pancakes are full of tropical banana-coconut flavor with just the right amount of sweetness mixed with warm cinnamon and vanilla; Mr. Banana Pancakes himself, Jack Johnson, would approve. Using Coconut flour means that these pancakes are rich in protein, high in fiber and healthy fats, they are gluten free and are exceptionally filling! Truly filling, 3 silver dollars with a side of fresh cut fruit were more than enough for brunch. This is a great healthy, quick, and tasty breakfast dish, only a few ingredients and gluten-free.

Here's my recipe for Fluffy Banana Coconut Flour Pancakes:
Serves 4 -  Makes 12 Silver Dollar Size Pancakes

Ingredients:
1 Large Ripe Banana
1/8 cup Coconut Flour
1/4 cup Milk*
3 Eggs
1/2 tsp Vanilla Bean Powder
1/2 tsp Ground Cinnamon

Salt to Taste, Avocado Oil 

* You can use Non-Diary Milks 
I did not add any extra sugar because the banana was already super ripe, I leave that addition to your discretion. 

Directions:

1. Thoroughly mash banana so there aren't any major lumps, add beaten eggs, milk and mix well. Then add mix of coconut flour, salt, vanilla bean powder, and cinnamon.  Make sure it is incorporated well. Let sit for 10-15 minutes.

2. Add ~1 Tbsp oil to a skillet and heat to medium hot. Once heated add one Tablespoon full drop of batter and cook till crisp on the edge and golden brown toward the middle then flip.
 Repeat with the remaining batter.


 Serve Hot with Sliced Fruit and Enjoy!
