4 eggs (if you are allergic to egg, try using Orgran Egg replacer)
120ml coconut milk
1 teaspoon pure vanilla bean paste
1 banana, smashed
2 tablespoons honey or rice malt syrup
100g ( approx 8 heaped tablespoons) almond meal – (for a nut free alternative, try using flaxseed).
2 tablespoons coconut flour
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoons cacao nibs ( grind in coffee grinder) plus extra for dusting.. This is optional. Leave out if you don’t have it.
2 teaspoons gluten free baking powder
1 teaspoon river salt
Coconut oil for cooking


Mix together the eggs, coconut milk, honey, vanilla, smashed banana.

Combine all the other ingredients (except for the coconut oil).

Add the egg mixture to the dry mixture.

Grease a crepe pan with a little coconut oil, place over a medium heat.

Ladle approx 2 tablespoons of batter in per pancake. Cook for a few minutes on each side. *Be careful while cooking as pancakes can burn easily (coconut flour & almond flour do this) so keep the pancakes small.. Then Less cooking time is needed.

Serve with a squeeze of Lemon with honey or maple syrup & a little dust of cacao nibs.
# cacao nibs are a pleasure food with benefits.. Rich in minerals (magnesium, iron, zinc & more ) BUT they are a ’ pleasure food not a ’ super food’.. Small amounts as a treat like anything!
