Gluten-free Banana & Blueberry Pancakes


By crikey, these are good! So quick and easy to make, but a totally yummy result and great for a lazy weekend brunch. The best thing is you can feel completely virtuous while eating them! Thanks to Julia Baldassano from Mind Body for this great little recipe.


Makes 6 pancakes


  • 1 ripe banana
  • 2 organic, cage-free eggs
  • 2 tablespoons almond meal (almond flour)
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon powder
  • 1/2 cup blueberries (fresh or frozen)
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil
  • Greek yoghurt
  • Fresh berries & organic maple syrup for topping


  1. Mash the banana with a fork in a mixing bowl. Add almond meal (flour). Whisk in eggs, vanilla and cinnamon. Stir in blueberries.
  2. Heat coconut oil in a pan or griddle.
  3. Ladle batter in pan and cook each pancake 1 to 2 minutes on each side.
  4. Top with a dollop of Greek yoghurt, fresh berries, and/or a drizzle of maple syrup, as desired. Or, you could sift a little icing sugar over top, though this wouldn’t be quite so healthy!
