Breakfast is by far my favourite meal of the day! Getting up early and having breakfast and the first cup of coffee of the day, when the whole world is quite is just unbeatable. Especially in Summer, when the sun comes out quite early and you can sit on the terrace in the morning and enjoy the first part of a new day. For me there is also no strict rule if breakfast has to be sweet or savoury. This alternates depending on my mood, but I can tell you that I am a avocado on toast/bread kind of girl . But I am also up for a stack of pancakes.
Yesterday, I was out for breakfast with a dear friend and we went to a café in my hometown, which also served pancakes with coconut and banana. If you read my blog for a little bit, you know that I am a huge fan of everything with coconut in it, and I can tell you that I was quite excited about my coconut pancakes, but unfortunately they came with a load of cream and sweetener on top and being perfectly honest it was all just a little bit over top and so I decided to recreate the recipe, but in a more unsweet way. They turned out fluffy, and perfectly sweet and just incredible yummy. And I have to say that I like mine way more than the ones from the café, so of course I have to share the recipe with you, so that you can impress friends or family at your next brunch!
You will need for 2 servings
- 2 bananas
- 150 ml coconut milk
- 80 g flour (coconut flour)
- 3 eggs
- 1 tbsp. of baking powder
- coconut oil
- maple syrup, coconut flakes, berries to garnish
First you have to mash up the bananas and the milk until you get a smoothie consistency. Then add the eggs and stir really well. Lastly add the flour and baking powder and mix until you get a smooth dough. In a pan heat up 2-3 tbsp. coconut oil. I added 3-4 generous table spoons of dough into the pan for each pancake. When the pancake has bubbles on the surface then you have to turn it, but I would check it in between, because if the pan is to hot, the pancake burns. Then flip the pancake and leave it until it is cooked. Repeat this process until you have no more dough left.
You can serve the pancake just with some maple syrup, or you add berries. Another really nice alternative is to slice up a banana really fine and place it on top of the pancake, then sprinkle with some coconut flakes.
