Here’s how to make lighter Plantain Pancakes that hold together nicely – without grains, added sugars or nasties. Top them off with a mixed berry sauce!



For the pancakes:

For the sauce:


  1. MASH: Peel the plantain carefully and chop into chunks. Add to the bowl of a food processor and process until it has a mashed texture. Add the egg and coconut milk to the bowl, scrape down the sides and process until smooth.
  2. SIFT: Combine the coconut flour, arrowroot powder, cream of tartar, baking soda and cinnamon. Sift all the dry ingredients through a fine mesh sieve into the food processor bowl. Process until you have an evenly combined batter.
  3. COOK: Grease a large frying pan or skillet with some coconut oil over low-medium heat. When the pan is hot, scoop small pancakes using a 1/8 cup of batter at a time. Flatten the tops gently and cook until browned. Flip gently and cook through the second side. Repeat as needed until all the batter is used up.
  4. WARM: Make the Mixed Berry Sauce by combining the jam and maple syrup. Stir and warm through. Spoon over pancakes to serve.
