This delectable banana blueberry pancake recipe is an ideal snack or make-ahead brekkie option to satisfy hungry tummies. Simple to make, delicious, and packed with good-for-you antioxidants. AND did I mention – they contain no refined sugar in the ingredients!
I found my 10-year old snack monster taking a break from homework; rummaging through the cupboards for an afternoon snack. Although nothing in sight took his fancy, he did spot the flour and maple syrup! It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to guess what he was thinking…YES, pancakes! Who doesn’t LOVE pancakes?! The look in his eyes when I said, “yes let’s do it!” I swear this little man was born with not just a sweet tooth, rather a sweet mouth!!
Gotta give him credit for his ingenuity; he sets off enthusiastically in pursuit of recipes. And of course, being a dietitian’s son ponders on all the ways he can change the recipe to make it ‘better for us.’ “Let’s use coconut flour, and mashed bananas instead of sugar,” he said. I was somewhat stunned. Let’s just say this was no ordinary break and turned into a fun-filled family indulgence. I don’t know about you, but my mouth was salivating at the thought of digging my teeth into a warm and fluffy sweet delight.

Break Time With Banana and Blueberry Pancakes
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- ½ cup coconut flour
- 2 tsp baking powder
- ½ tsp salt
- 1 egg lightly beaten
- 1¼ cup milk 1% or 2%
- 3 banana medium, ripe, mashed
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- ½ cup frozen blueberries do not thaw
- In a large bowl, combine the flours, baking powder, salt and cinnamon powder. In a separate bowl, combine the egg, milk, bananas and vanilla and stir into dry ingredients until well mixed. Add blueberries and gently stir.
- Coat a scotch pancake pan (or you can use a large flat pan) with cooking spray. Turn pan to low heat. Pour pancake batter (about ¼ cup) onto the pan. Keep the heat on very low so the pancake cooks through. Turn and cook until second side is golden brown.
- Drizzle with maple syrup, if desired.
