K's Banana Brekky Pancakes

Sweet as can be, but you won't find any added sugar in these. 

K’s brekky pancakes get all of their sweetness from whole bananas, dates and lucuma powder. Don’t like dates? Well either does my oldest daughter or husband, they have no idea they're eating them. I feel good giving my family whole foods and they feel good because they're getting chocolate for breakfast! 

My kids love adding chocolate chips to these. They make a great healthy after school snack. 

2 Bananas
4-6 Medjool Dates
1 1/2 cups Almond or Oat Milk (you can use any milk of choice)
1 egg
1 tbsp Raw Cacao
1 tbsp Lucuma Powder (optional)
1 tbsp Flaxseed/Linseed, ground
1 cup Spelt Flour or whole wheat flour
2 tsp Baking Powder
Coconut oil for cooking

  • Blend bananas, dates, milk and egg in a high speed blender until liquified, about 10-20 secs.
  • Add the remaining ingredients and blend until smooth. 
    • Tip- if your using a NutriBullet to blend the wet ingredients, it will not be large enough for the dry ingredients to blend. In a separate mixing bowl, combine the dry ingredients and then pour the wet ingredients and whisk until completely blended. 
  • Heat a skillet over medium heat and melt coconut oil in pan to prevent pancakes from sticking.
  • Pour approximately a ¼ cup of pancake mixture into the pan. Pancakes are ready to flip once they began to show lots of bubbles on the top. 

Serve with maple syrup, fruit, fruit compote or chocolate hazelnut spread.
