High fibre, high iron, rich in B vitamins, potassium packed bananas are great fuel for our bodies. Many studies have also shown that adding cinnamon also helps lower the GI of high GI foods like bananas and assists in regulating blood sugar levels. They are not made on white flour so you will not feel like you have a chunk of play-doh in your guts after eating them 🙂
2 lge very ripe bananas, puréed
3/4 cup almond meal
2 tbs ground flaxseeds
2 tbs coconut flour
1 cup coconut milk (or milk of your choice)
1/2 cup flavourless protein powder
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 heaped tsp cinnamon
In a food processor mix all ingredients until smooth. Spoon into a hot pan and cook like regular pancakes. These were a little more fragile to flip than usual pancakes. Not really sure why? We had some of ours with a fresh squeeze of lemon and others with some Not-Nutella . YUMMO!!
These actually look quite boring sitting on the plate but they were a taste sensation!!1

Yum! I eat cinnamon spice pancakes almost every morning! These look great. Love almond meal. I bet they were more delicate because you used almond meal and coconut flours as the flours which neither have gluten. That makes pancakes real flimsy. Regardless, I’m sure they taste great, that’s the most important thing 🙂
Yep I think you are completely right regarding their delicacy 😉 either way, they were yum!
You utilize protein powder in your recipes a lot. Is there a particular brand that is best for baking or that you recommend?
Hi Bethaney, you can always substitute the protein for another type of flour if you like. I tend to use the Professional Whey brand (from grassfed cows) or Vital (same company that makes Vital Greens) brand if I am using a pea protein. I tend to find pea protein works better in most baking as it does not dry out as much as whey. Hope that helps
OH MY GOODNESS!! How did I miss this recipe?! I totally would have made these today after my long run! Guess what I’m making tomorrow morning! 🙂
Thanks Sarah 🙂 they were really yum xx
