• 4 Bananas
  • 8 Eggs
  • 1tsp Baking powder
  • ½tsp Vanilla extract
  • 1tbsp Ground almonds (optional)
  • 2tbsp Coconut oil


  • Strawberries, sliced
  • Nutella (optional)


  • STEP 1

    In a mixing bowl, mash up the bananas with a fork until relatively smooth

  • STEP 2

    Add the eggs, baking soda, vanilla extract and almonds to the bowl and mix. Using an electric whisk will ensure there are no banana lumps left.

  • STEP 3

    If you're using Nutella for the topping, heat it in the microwave in 10 second bursts until runny.

  • STEP 4

    Heat a pan to medium-hot and add a little coconut oil. When the oil is hot, spoon a ladle full of mixture and cook for two minutes before turning and cooking for a further two minutes.

  • STEP 5

    Place the pancake on a plate, drizzle with a teaspoon of Nutella (optional) and add sliced strawberries.

  • STEP 6

    Repeat with the mixture until you have a 3-to-4-high pancake stack before starting a new plate.

  • The banana in the mix causes the pancakes to look darker than traditional pancakes when cooked.
  • For an extra chocolatey hit, add a teaspoon of cocoa powder to the mixture.
