Spiced Banana Pancakes

Spiced Banana Pancakes


I’m a firm believer of breakfast. Breakfast at breakfast, breakfast at dinner or breakfast just any time of day! Usually mine involves eggs which is a favourite and a staple in this household – between my husband and I we go through approximately 50 eggs a week!

So I woke up this morning hungry.. (as always) and fancied something sweet and filling and obviously healthy:) I ended up making banana spiced pancakes topped with a chocolate (cacao) sauce and a strawberry raspberry reduction. These are ridiculously heavy and super delish and I ended up eating five (!) so am totally in a food coma right now. But they’re the perfect Sunday breakfast (brunch/dinner/eaten in bed) clean cheat.

Ingredients for the pancakes

2 ripe bananas pureed in a food processor or mashed with a fork

1/4 cup of ground almonds

1/4 cup of ground coconut

3 eggs

1/4 teaspoon of baking powder

1/2 teaspoon of vanilla essence

1/2 teaspoon of ground cinnamon

1/4 teaspoon ground ginger powder

a pinch of nutmeg

Puree the bananas and put into a mixing bowl. add in the eggs and then the rest of the ingredients and mix until you have a fairly thick batter. heat a skillet and cook the pancakes in small batches in either some coconut oil or butter. they tend to take a little longer to cook than conventional pancakes so I usually turn the heat down to low and cover the pan to cook the top of the pancakes slightly before I attempt to turn them.


Ingredients for the chocolate sauce

2 tablespoons of cacao powder

1 tablespoon of coconut oil / butter

a teaspoon of maple syrup (optional)

mix all the ingredients and melt in the microwave for 20 seconds and then stir.  Super easy and you’re left with a decadent chocolate sauce to pour over your pancakes


Ingredients for the strawberry & raspberry reduction

5 strawberries chopped into four

10 raspberries

1 tablespoon of honey

Add the ingredients to a saucepan together with approximately 4 tablespoons of water and cook on a moderate heat until you’re left with a sticky jam like sauce which you can then drizzle hot over your pancake stack

Next step: Eat. and then take a nap 😉
