paleo plantain pancakes

paleo plantain pancakesOh My Goodness, how good does this look?! I can totally imagine paying $15 for this an a trendy little cafe.  There’s my little boast for the day.

I have been seeing recipes on many of the blogs I follow using plantains (they are like large unripe bananas) and saw some the other day in a fruit shop so bought some and decided to give a couple of recipes a go.  I have plantain chips in the dehydrator as we speak and made this fantastic pancake!

The pancake is light and fluffy and served with yoghurt, shaved pear and 11 seed & nut paleo muesli.  So good with my morning coffee for brunch! The original recipe comes from http://www.thepaleomom.com.

  • 1 plantain (mine was black but I think you can use when green too)
  • 2 eggs
  • pinch salt 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2 Tbsp coconut oil
  • 2 Tbsp maple syrup (optional)
  • 1 pear shaved or thinly sliced
  • dollop of yoghurt (can use DF option) to serve
  • 11 seed & nut muesli to serve – omit for nut free version
  1. Cut and peel plantain (I had to slice the skin off) IMG_1635
  2. Blend all ingredients in high speed blender to make a batter.
  3. Fry in a frypan with a little coconut oil like you would a normal pancake. IMG_1637
  4. Serve with dollop of yoghurt, shaved pear and muesli.

Makes 3-4 pancakes.
