I LOVE this recipe! It came from my friend Vanessa Woosley at The Life Sutra – It is simple to make, tastes delicious and provides everyone with some good healthy probiotics. Winner!

I know people are often pressed for time in the mornings. You could save this recipe for the weekend, or I sometimes make up a large batch and then store the pancakes in the fridge for a day or so.


  • 2 ripe bananas
  • 1 tbsp coconut flour
  • 2 tbsp almond butter (I have used other nut butters too)
  • 1 tbsp linseeds (I have also used the ground version – flaxseed)
  • 2 eggs
  • Coconut oil or butter for frying
  • Some kefir yoghurt
  • A handful of berries (my children like strawberries or blueberries best)



  • Blend the bananas, flour, almond butter, linseeds and eggs together into a smooth batter.
  • Gently heat the oil or butter in a frying pan.
  • Drop heaped tablespoons of the batter into the pan to form little rounds – I usually fit 4 or 5 in the pan at a time, but it will depend on the size you make (sometimes we make really tiny ones and see how many we can get in the pan).
  • When you start to see little bubbles form on the pancakes they are ready to turn and cook the other side.
  • Turn out onto a plate, pour on the kefir and add berries. Enjoy!
