Did we say pancakes? Yes. Yes we did.


  • 2 bananas (very ripe)
  • 2 eggs
  • ½ tsp baking powder
  • Pinch of salt



  1. Combine all ingredients using a blender or mash with fork until blended.
  2. Coat a pan with a very thin layer of coconut oil, and place pan on medium heat
  3. Pour a small amount of batter. (Helpful hint: Bananas do NOT have the same consistency as a normal pancake, so keep your pancakes small. They’ll be easier to flip!)
  4. Cook on both sides until golden brown.
