I don’t know about you but this rainy winter weather has got us craving comfort food bad! Pancakes was our Sunday morning ritual growing up – lathered in too much sugar and a drizzle of lemon. They’re the ultimate weekend breakfast food and always make you feel like a big kid again.

Choosing to eat healthy doesn’t mean you have to give up your childhood traditions entirely! Those legendary banana pancakes from your childhood are about to make a serious comeback, with the addition of… chocolate! Well, cacao at least 😉

You’ll only need 5 ingredients, plus a few toppings of course 😉


What you’ll need

  • 1 Banana (the larger sugar bananas work best, or 2 small lady fingers)
  • 2 Eggs
  • 1 teaspoon Cinnamon (optional; a pinch of nutmeg too)
  • Raw cacao to taste (some love 1 teaspoon, we love a tablespoon!)
  • Organic butter, or coconut oil (for frying)

+   Toppings of choice: e.g. frozen berries and Greek or coconut yoghurt, lemon and a little stevia!


Now do this

    1. Pop bananas, eggs, cinnamon/nutmeg and cacao in your blender and blend them up!
    2. Pour your batter into a slightly oiled or buttered pan over a medium heat and cook as you would regular pancakes.
    3. Recipe makes one large, or two small cakes.
    4. Serve with topping/s of choice.
