Coconut Raisin Pancakes (Grain & Gluten Free, Dairy Free and Nut Free)

These coconut raisin pancakes are a delicious twist on the 2 ingredient sugar banana pancakes (see here). The coconut gives the pancake extra texture and flavour and the raisins give a nice burst of sweetness that my kids love. Its really important to use sugar bananas in this recipe, known as Ducasse which are short, fat with a thin skin, not the common cavendish type found in the supermarket. The sugar banana when just ripe, gives the batter a nice thickness very similar to a 'normal' pancake batter.

add all ingredients except the raisin or currants
blend all ingredients (except raisins) until smooth in magic bullet or blender
  • Add raisins or currants and pulse once to mix through (do not blend the raisins as it's nice to have them whole in the pancake)
  • Heat a non stick pan on medium heat with 1-2 tbsp coconut oil to completely cover the surface of the pan, allow to heat up so that the batter slightly sizzles but without spluttering
  • Mix batter with spoon to evenly distribute raisins and drop 1 tbsp of batter per pancake, I fit around 7 pancakes in my pan at a time
drop 1 tbsp of batter per pancake in the heated pan
  • Cook for 1-2 minutes, checking to ensure they do not burn, then flip for another 1 minute
  • Repeat for the remaining batter
keep an eye on the pancakes as the natural sugars in the banana can cause them to burn quickly
  • Stack and serve on it's own or with maple syrup if you feel indulgent :)
