I was talking to a friend about my struggle to find something yummy for breakfast (I seem to have issues with eggs on their own first thing in the morning), she suggested I whisk up an egg and a banana and fry it like a pancake. It was delicious but I found it very hard to flip, so here is my version...




  • 1 ripe banana mashed
  • 25g melted butter or coconut oil
  • 1/2 cup buckwheat flour or 1/3 cup coconut flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 3 eggs



  1. Whisk together banana, butter and eggs
  2. Add buckwheat flour (or coconut flour) and baking powder, whisk to form a smooth batter
  3. Heat a heavy based fry pan to medium heat, add a blob of butter or coconut oil
  4. Place spoon fills of batter into pan (I make them about 10cm diameter otherwise they are really hard to flip)
  5. Wait until bubbles start to form on top, then flip and cook until golden on both sides
  6. Serve with Mixed Berry Sauce and a little bit of whipped cream 


  • If using coconut flour, leave mixture to sit for 5 mins while it thickens up, if it gets too thick add a bit of coconut cream or natural yoghurt.
  • These are awesome in the waffle maker - cooks from both side so you don't need to worry about flipping!
