This recipe is a "first" for my blog. The first recipe that I have not tasted that I am sharing with you. It feels weird and that is part of my hesitation to post lately. But, I trusted my finicky taste testers to guide me as I created this recipe just for them. Yep, the boys gave me feedback and this is the recipe that they love. I am told "Mom, you have to post this recipe, because people need this!" So enough explanation...let's get cooking!
4 pastured eggs (see note where to buy at the bottom of this post)*
1 organic banana - approximately 1/2 cup
1 tablespoon real organic maple syrup - Grade B
1/2 teaspoon organic cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon baking soda
4 tablespoons organic coconut flour (Tropical Traditions)
2 tablespoons organic coconut oil, liquify (plus extra for oiling the pan) (Tropical Traditions)
I begin preheating my 12-inch skillet while I mix my pancake ingredients together. It takes awhile for my heavy stainless steel skillet to heat up, but you be the judge of your own skillet.
- Crack the eggs into a large bowl and whisk together very well.
- Peel and mash a banana into a small bowl and add to the egg mixture.
- Add the maple syrup, cinnamon, baking soda, coconut flour and coconut oil to the egg/banana mixture
- Stir well with a fork until mixed well.
- To determine if your skillet is hot and ready for the batter, add a drop of water to the skillet and if it skittles around the pan it should be just right. Add the coconut oil to the pan.. My skillet works well with 3 tablespoons coconut oil at the start and then I use less as I cook more batches.
- Using a spoon drop the batter onto the hot skillet spreading it a little with the back of the spoon to make 3 " pancakes.
- Cook on the first side until browned on the bottom. You may see a few bubbles on the top side when ready, but not always, so keep checking for the bottom to brown. I use a flexible spatula for turning the pancakes gently to the other side. Brown and remove from the pan and enjoy!
- Do not use extra virgin olive oil for oiling the skillet, because the pancakes will cook to fast on the outside and burn. Coconut oil and stainless steel work great.
