Pancake Mixture:

(Makes 3 small pancakes)

  • 1/2 ripe banana
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 Tablespoon almond flour
  • 1 Tablespoon coconut flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder

Apple Mixture:

  • 1 sliced red apple
  • 1 tablespoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla


  • Almond butter
  • Shredded or flaked coconut
  • Walnuts and pecans


Place sliced apples into a small pot and cover with water. Add cinnamon, maple syrup and vanilla and simmer on medium heat until the apples are soft (about 15 minutes).

Blend all pancake ingredients in a blender until smooth.

Heat some coconut oil in a pan and cook pancakes on both sides until lightly brown (turning when the top bubbles).

Layer pancakes with almond butter, shredded coconut and the apple mixture.

Top with crushed walnuts, pecans and coconut flakes and drizzle over the left over apple liquid to finish!
